Anyway, the only reason the death penalty is more expensive than life in prison is because the liberals have made the appeals process so laborious and the lawyers charge the public treasury so much money to defend these shitheads. If we had a straight-forward, simple to understand, and lawyer-free procedure to execute lifelong felons, the death penalty would be significantly cheaper.
Our justice system is far from perfect and I can think of many individuals who've been convicted of capital crimes who were later exonerated.
