I some what agree with windance88 but lets look at the otherside. Why let a convicted murderer sit and be pampered in jail until his demise is in question. I beleive that if you are a convicted felon of a violent crime such as murder and the evidence is over whelming why ask for an appeal that last 10 years. Something of this magnitude should go directly to Federal Supreme Court for immediate review. Once it is determined that everything is in order (evidence, rules of trial, etc) then you get your death warrant issued to you and upon that, Then your done. No waiting just a trip through the express line. We as a nation have become soft. To get tough on criminals then the system has to be tough. There are too many people that are complacent about this matter. When we become complacent thats when things get out of hand. Other countries do not have this problem. In Japan and other countries when you are convicted of violent crimes and you get the death penalty. Justice is swift and its done. No waiting 10 years no tax money spent on giving the criminal 3 hots and a cot, a gym to workout in, tv and a education. Im for justice when it serves the rightous. I also believe that when you are a convicted felon of violent crime YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS TO ANYTHING NONE WHAT SO EVER. As far as retribution, the bible says that we as man make laws and we should obey them. Thats just the order of things. There is also another thing that is unseen by the naked eye. Lawyers like gragging out trials so they can get that extra few hours in to make more money. I know you dont go for statement but figure this out. If I was a lawyer and someone hired me at a rate of 1000.00 retainer and 500 dollars and hour. And you commited murder I am going to get paid to defend you for the next 10 years. And on top of that you are a paying customer. When you get fried im gong to retire cause you have just paid me over a million to try and get you off the chair. Now you see why lawyers are so damn expensive they get paid to lie while you take and oath to tell the truth Kind of a catch 22. Hell you could make a whole other story on this idea.
