As a friend of mine wrote today:
"I see where that piece of human garbage, Jared Loughner, got a plea deal, coming after a federal judge ruled that he was competent to stand trial, means he will not get the death penalty. He now faces life in prison without the possibility of parole.
You mean they didn't have enough evidence to take him to trial, find him guilty and fry his ass? Such BS
Now we, the taxpayer, have to support this scumbag while he becomes a jailhouse celebrity like Charles Manson!"
Check this out and see if it doesn't 'anger' you just a litlle like it does me:
"Prisons cost taxpayers more than $32 billion a year. Every year that an inmate spends in prison costs $22,000. An individual sentenced to five years for a $300 theft costs the public more than $100,000. The cost of a life term averages $1.5 million.
States are spending more money on prisons than education. Over the course of the last 20 years, the amount of money spent on prisons was increased by 570% while that spent on elementary and secondary education was increased by only 33%. "
It would be way cool if the prosecutor told him, "...oops, just kidding!" and went ahead and executed his dumb ass!
I whole heartedly agree!
