FOXNews.com - Just or Not, Cost of Death Penalty Is a Killer for State Budgets

Only in a land run by liberal loons would all it's liberally run state's be going bankrupt, but especially ones where criminals are supposed to be put to death according to this article below

But instead, thanks to liberals, the career criminal can only "hope and pray" for a death sentence, because not only will liberals "try their asses off" to keep them from dying for a couple decades with endless appeals, but will do it all "on the house".  That's mostly because "usually" the criminal is a lifetime scumbag, so he obviously has no assets,  and goes to prison to have a better place to live and that's the truth.
So they kill someone and live it up in prison instead of being a street bum outdoors laying in back alleys and sleeping in dumpsters.

However, if I were in charge, the death penalty would be the most expeditious process in the government, saving the state so much taxpayers' money,  that every state would emulate my program for death penalty cases. ANd this is, don't blink or you'll miss it.....1 Appeal and after that conviction, this is all the expenditures we'll be needing after each appeal which again finds them guilty.......

100 bullets and 100 executions at $30. Can't beat that budgetary move

Just or Not, Cost of Death Penalty Is a Killer for State Budgets:

FOXNews.com - "Capital murder trials and death row boondoggles are wreaking havoc on budgets across the country as many states are now rethinking the death penalty, which is enormously costly and rarely imposed even after successful prosecutions.

Every time a killer is sentenced to die, a school closes.

That is the broad assessment of a growing number of studies taking a cold, hard look at how much the death penalty costs in the 35 states that still have it.

Forget justice, morality, the possibility of killing an innocent man or any of the traditional arguments that have been part of the public debate over the death penalty. The new one is this:

The cost of killing killers is killing us.

'There have been studies of costs of the death penalty before, but we have never seen the same reaction that we are seeing now,' says Richard C. Dieter of the non-partisan Death Penalty Information Center. 'Perhaps it is because governments are looking for ways to cut costs, and this is easier than school closings or layoffs, but it sure has hit a nerve.'

In the last year, four states — Kansas, Colorado, Montana and Connecticut — have wrestled with the emotional and politically charged issue. In each state there was a major shift toward rejection of the death penalty and narrow defeats for legislation that would have abolished it. In Connecticut, both houses actually voted in favor of a bill that would have banned executions, but the governor vetoed it.

Unlike past debates over executions, the current battles are fueled largely by the costs the death penalty imposes on states. The numbers, according to the studies, are staggering.

Overall, according to Dieter, the studies have uniformly and conservatively shown that a death-penalty trial costs $1 million more than one in which prosecutors seek life without parole. That expense is being reexamined in the current budget crisis, with some state legislators advocating a moratorium on death-penalty trials until the economy improves."  continued
