Ok before you say hell no and exit my forum please read more. I for one used to support capital punishment. I am former military. Here recently I have became I supporter of the NCADP. My main thing was I figured it would be better to go ahead and kill criminals than to feed them for the rest of their lives. Did you know that it is cheaper to house and inmate for 40 years than to execute them? Also the electric chair is still the primary form of execution in Alabama. Also Alabama has a law to where a judge can over throw the jury's decision for life without parole. Also once someone is sentenced to death row they are no longer allowed to use DNA evidence. Also when a defendant is given a state appointed attorney the attorney is only allowed to perform $1,000 of defense service to the accused. Can you imagine all of the people who have been put to death that were not guilty? I have to say put yourself in the position of the accused loved ones. What if you were watching your child be electrocuted for a crime you knew they did not commit or your spouse? I think it is a total crock that someone can plead guilty to avoid the death penalty. There is a man in Atmore at Holman prison. Steven Mullins. He killed a homosexual black man by cutting his throat and stuffing him in the trunk of his own car. He turned himself in 3 days later and told law enforcement that he killed the man because he was a "nigger fagget" and that he didnít feel like he needed to live any longer. He dogged the death penalty by pleading guilty. Iím sorry but that does not seem like justice to me. I talk with criminals every day. I have a prison pen pal program that I participate in and many men on death row say they would rather be put to death than have life without parole and they may have thought twice about having committed their crime if they would have thought they would have to spend life in prison. I am asking you to please open your minds and consider everything I have said. Please feel free to Google the NCADP and look at the hard evidence and facts.

Yea,it cost more to kill someone on death row than keep someone for 40 years on LWOP.....cause it takes 20-30-40 years to finally kill the piece of trash.Now before you say it takes that long due to appeals and someone might not be guilty and there is proof...ok,how many of those people that have had their death row term over turned on technicality.How many were accessory to the murder and found they didn't inflict the actual killing wound but their partner did.Ok,now how many people have been found to be falsely accused AND didn't have ANYTHING to do with the crime period?We don't kill enough trash.I think that if you kill someone(exclude accidental death,Justifiable,etc) and are convicted the minimum is death.Also,go back to the real meaning of the constitution.When it was written Hangings was ok,Firing squad,etc were NOT cruel and unusual.Cruel and unusually means being put in prison or tortured cause you stole an apple while someone doing the same thing got a fine.It was written to standardize punishment.
