Im sure that money could of been better spent. On drug rehabs for the up and coming criminals, that will eventually land themselves with a life sentence.
Its time TN started looking at the beginning of the problems.instead of building extra prisons so the TN goverment can make large amounts of money with their prisoners. imported or other wise.
I understand peoples anger in wanting some of these men dead.
Id want to kill anyone who hurt any of my loved ones too,
Were ALL capable of murder if our right buttons are pushed..Not all of the guys on TN deathrow have killed just because they are bad. some have killed because someone killed their loved one. or killed the man that run off with thier wife, NOT right i know but love can make you do crazy stuff.
what would you do if you caught a man sexually abusing your 2 year old child?
Did Philip Workman really deserve to die? yes he robbed but we all know it wasnt his bullet that killed the cop. it was another cops bullet.
The TN Justice system doesnt always play fairly. It sometimes works on cover ups and who knows who. whos friends they can get on the Jury to get the out come they want. Trust me i know..
I also know that a LIFE in prison is worse than peace in death. some will say but they still get to see their loved ones, not true for most, most familys give up on them within 5 years. making sorry excuses as to why they cant visit or no longer take their collect calls. yes they get to walk around, watch tv, eat their meals. its NOT ALL tax money either they DO pay board and keep out of their wages. "the ones that work that is"
Im kind of a fence sitter because i would happly click a switch for some of the men that sit on deathrows across the country. But then i wouldnt want them to have peace in death either. BUT for me personally if i had of killed someone. Id want a quick exit living a life time of not having anyone who truely cares, having to watch my back incase someone decided they didnt like me that day and were gonna stab me in the yard. young and old guys are taken advantage of everyday in prisons across the USA. do you know what its like to have to listen to someone being raped. knowing you cant help them for fear of you own safety? Im guessing if you knew what the prison system was truely like you wouldnt be so quick to want them all to die. if pain and struggle is what your all looking for? in my eyes death isnt justice for a loved one.
