As a supporter of the death penalty, do you think an inmate should be able to appeal for decades before the execution is carried out?
Should there be a time limit, for example, the execution should be carried out within X amount of year(s).
I mean why bother with the sentence if it is not going to be carried out?
Death penalty cases cost millions and millions of dollars based, in part, on the numerous automatic state and federal appeals a death row inmate is granted. Instead of modifing the number appeals to hasten this process, more efforts are being made to reform the system and narrow the scope that makes a criminal eligible for the death pentaly.
IMO, these dispicable, viscious, soulless, vile creatures are being treated with more respect and right to life than their victims were afforded. That just does not sit right with me.
