I don't really agree with the death penalty, but since we have it and it's probably not going anywhere, it's a reality of life. So, if we HAVE to have it, it should be carried out fairly.
And, if it is, I think it should be used only for the most heinous of crimes. But, only after DNA (if it'll help prove one way or the other, which isn't the case in every situation) has determined innocence or guilt; after all fairly conducted appeals are lost and exhausted, and there is no more question about a person's guilt or innocence.
But, with that being said... After all that's done, if they are found to be truly guilty, then execute them quickly. Bye. See you in Heaven. Or Hell.
Don't have them sitting around in solitary confinement for 29 years. That's money we could be putting into education or other good causes like medical research, or something..
Personally, I have no problem frying the scum and think we should accelerate the process.
