QuoteHardly anyone else in the developed world still pratices capital punishment. And the reason it costs so much in the US is because capital trials are so much longer and expensive than regular ones. And even with all those long trials we STILL have executed innocent people. Unless you want to get rid of these protective measures that try to prevent that from happening (ones which are not fool-proof, by the way), it's gonna be more expensive to execute people than sentence them to life in prison.Having an innocent rotting in jail for all his lifespam isn't exactly fool-proof nor very human either. Aside from price (which am not troughly convinced yet) the only reason to oppose death penalty it's because death it's scary/gross.
