LOL. I agree 100% with this!The Deacon wrote:It's definitely a deterrent to recidivism. Show me one case where someone who was executed for a crime has gone on to commit another.
The reason for that is because they get unlimited legal representation to the tune of tens of millions of dollars by groups opposed to the death penalty who do this just to make it easier to not execute people who often do deserve it. Teams of lawyers and legal assistants, unlimited budgets for PI's, and access to judges placed in the court system just to throw a wrench into the system.Problem for me is that it cost more to execute an inmate than to keep them in prison for life. So, I'll vote with my wallet.

Going back to the original question ... did you conclude whether or not the death penalty is ever a deterrent?arnold ziffle wrote:having worked at san quentin for the last 22 years, and now retired, i had a small part in 11 executions. six hours before the execution i opened the tube door to let the escort detail out from the last visit to the long walk to the chamber. also working with condemned inmates i have a bit of insight into the process and their mindset.
in california it takes more than 20 years or pass sentence and with many appeals any doubt is worked out.
any questions or curiosity feel free to ask.
