No sense in keeping a murderer alive when all it does is wastes money.
You are aware that an execution generally costs more than keeping the perp imprisoned for the rest of his natural life.
By the time he goes through all his appeals and various recourses, all paid by the state, often millions have been spent.
Iraq does it the economical way: Sentence, reject appeal, hang. All within a month or two.
Sure I understand that. Our system sucks in that manner. I’d really like to see it like Iraq or China. You get sentenced and it’s carried out swiftly.
But I’m a bit Draconian in that respect.
The word is fascist.
The US system allready is draconian.
Do you really have to keep posting your idiocy for everyone to see? The US system is draconian? Oh, lord. Have you been to the Middle East? Pick any of the peaceful nations: Iraq, Iran, Saudi, Syria. Then tell me that the US system is ‘draconian’. Go do China and then tell me how ‘draconian’ the US is? Keep you little soundbites to yourself it they don’t make sense. Flog yourself six times with your pick purse for this one. Then we’re even.
5% of the world?s population, 25% of the world?s prison inmates.
And no, those other countries do not execute so many people as to explain the difference.
The US is among the leaders in that category too…

Again. Go to Saudi. Watch someone get beheaded in the village square. Good fun. Certainly not ‘draconian’. Do you think that China and middle eastern countries publish reliable, accurate numbers of those executed? Idiot.
