The Death Penalty in NOT Conservative
- Rule #1 of Life - Politicians are liars and assholes. I do not want to give political hacks looking for higher office or a promotion the power to kill. No more, no less.
- Life in prison at hard, hard labor works for me. Make all crooks regret the day they were born and make them pray to God every day that there was a death penalty.
(Common Dreams) - On Election Day, California voters will make a monumental moral and financial decision. Proposition 62 — the Justice That Works Act — is on the Nov. 8 ballot, and if the initiative passes, it will replace the death penalty with life in prison without parole. It will also require convicted murderers to work and pay restitution to their victims’ families. And it will save taxpayers $150 million a year, according to the Legislative Analyst’s Office.
Among the states still part of the U.S. death penalty system, California has the most people on death row—746. Florida is next, with 388, according to the Yes on 62 campaign. Overall, 2,943 people are on death row in the United States (as of Jan. 1) — meaning almost one in four people waiting to be executed are in the California penal system. The elderly make up 11 percent, and the oldest condemned inmate is 86. The average stay on death row is 18 years.

Although California has spent about $5 billion administering the death penalty, it has executed just 13 people since 1978. This means taxpayers have spent about $384 million per execution.
