I ask that if you don't support the death penalty that you simply move on, because the question does not pertain to you. However should you wish to answer anyways please be respectful of those of us who do support DP.
I was watching some crime show last night and the guy was sentenced to something like 400 years, but his crimes didn't qualify him for DP. Now, my question is, should we have a year limit before it automatically becomes a DP? Obviously if someone is sentenced to 400 years they are going to die in prison anyways, so how is that NOT a death sentence anyways? Why pay to keep them there for the rest of their natural lives when they have no chance of freedom anyways? If their crimes were so bad that they are sentenced to an unnaturally long amount of years why not just put them on death row, where they obviously belong...
My second question is IF you agree with this line of thinking, what do you feel the "limit" of years should be? Should it be anything over "LIFE" or something else?
**I also want to say I know many of the people on Death Row aren't killed by the state but by old age anyways, but lets assume for a moment that the warrants are actually being signed and the system is put to work the way it should be...

What I dont understand is why those on death row get to have reviews over and over again. Its interesting cause this pedifile was sentenced in 70's, not for the dp but for a long sentence and b/c he served his time he just got out. They said if he had been sentenced today for this crime, he never would have gotten out. So now we have another pedophile back on the streets and our children are at risk again. I know Im off topic but it just makes me so mad how our legal system works. DP, should mean what it says, not some sentence that will be a life thing. Only 1 yr for me, screw these guys and lets get some justice for the families for Gods sake!
