Meh, the only problem I have with the death penalty is the fact that people make mistakes, alot. If you could give me 100% assurance on every case that'd be cool. Lessening the cost and speeding up the process also doesn't seem to work for me either, there's no way in hell I'm being pinned for a murder and not having my opportunity to make appeals, etc.

However, slave labour I'm not above. Doing time in the clink should be more severe. Get these fuckers out and building pyramids or something. 12 hours a day in the hot sun pulling 1 ton blocks of stone. I don't know what prison is like down south, but up here those fuckers get cable and shit.

Also, even if you got rid of the appeals process and used bullets instead of lethal injection then apparently you aren't really going to solve the economics issue. Check out this shit:

Quote:
The greatest costs associated with the death penalty occur prior to and during trial, not in post-conviction proceedings. Even if all post-conviction proceedings (appeals) were abolished, the death penalty would still be more expensive than alternative sentences.


quoted from Amnesty International

I don't know, Canadians tend to be pinko hippies I guess, but at least our legal system is pretty cheap when you compare it to yours. Also, with all the crazy social spending we do and those bailouts after the 2008 bubble burst our national debt is still only $568 billion. Which works out to be about $16,000 per person. That's not bad, especially when you guys are up to what, $14.7 trillion? That's a debt of $131,000 to every tax paying American in your country.

The American pyramids would be nice.

i agree with the slave labor thing. only problem is it makes it easier for them to escape..which is probably why they don't do it. if they would do what they were told, they probably wouldn't be prisoners in the first place.

if there weren't so many bleeding hearts i think that putting them on an island filled with hidden cameras and making it a reality show would be awesome.

People wouldn't be able to stomach all the anal rape.

They might as well just pit them against each other and bring back the gladiator arenas. Or like The Running Man.

yeah but i think the idea of setting them free if they win is flawed. cause you can't let someone that bad ass out in the world.

Unless you make their reward more punishment.

However, instead of gladiator arenas I prefer the notion of explosive collars that are triggered by tampering with them or exceeding the defined parameters of their work environment. Also, put RFID tags in their food and medical innoculations so they can be tracked on the off-chance one of them is smart enough to remove the collar even with the built in anti-tampering features. However, I believe upon their recapture that they should be given a job in the CIA or something doing something productive with their obvious talents. Then, on top of that, if they can still evade captivity and forced labour beyond all these measures, then we should just accept them as being the next phase in human evolution as it is apparent they are probably more human than human... and well we shouldn't fuck with progress, so let 'em go hoss.

Pyramids are still a neccesity of the phase I project though. However, if we decide we no longer need pyramids, but want to continue the pyramid building project, then we can just force them to deconstruct the pyramid they just built, piece by piece, and then reconstruct it 5 meters to the left of the original position. It's an indignity of incredible proportions.
