After a lifetime of "flip-flopping" over the death penalty issue - I've been for and against off and on most all my life - I've finally come to terms with it an voted yes on 34. I agree with Mr. Klaas also.

I find that the issue isn't with the death penalty itself but the amount of money wasted on these inmates. The endless appeals make a death sentence laughable. What needs to happen is that a time and date for execution is set during the trial for a period not to exceed a certain amount of time. If this isn't what people want to do then just abolish it. Either way it makes no difference to me. Presonally I think people who earn the death penalty should suffer so why kill them? Cut off their arms and legs and let them live out their lives. In the case of violent sex offenders cut off their junk. Their are much better solutions to crime then death.
