What a wonderful equation.................sickpup said:From the US Dept of Justice:
"State and federal authorities held 1,470,045 prisoners as of December 31, 2003..."
It later goes on to say that, excluding those inmates held in local jails, the number is 1,387,848.
So, even if we take a low-end figure of, say, 30k per prisoner per year. You’re looking at almost 42 Billion dollars...? That seems pretty damn high.
If we assume that 1% of the inmate population is in there for truly heinous crimes (multiple homicide, child rape/murder, etc). What if we could use Goblin’s .20 cent solution on these worthless bastards?
One percent of the population would be 13,878. That would cost about 2,775 dollars to eliminate them (hey, and we might even be able to charge the inmate’s family for the bullet – much like China does!). So, that would save us about 416 million bucks!
(13,878 x $30,000) – (13,878 x $0.20)
Let’s do it!
lol, ok, then let me rephrase it...Ivan Rapkinov said:because the US justice system is always right...no one is ever found innocent later on...
you know what would save even more money? You could bill the family of the deceased the cost of the bullets! Hell, why not just shoot them too? They're obviously from the defective part of the gene pool, better to weed them out now them let them breed...
no offence, but bullet to the head is one of the most ridiculous things ever posted here.
thank god at least for California and it's larger than nessecary population of liberals...
Assuming we, too, haven't cut off an infants arms and watched it bleed to death, we have every right to say that.Ivan Rapkinov said:I'm glqad that Australia doesn't have capital punishment to be honest. Sure there are some scum who should die, but what right do we have to say that?
Kind of a Unit 731 thing, great idea, but the Japanese beat you to it. :TRUCE:last_cav1971 said:If they could find a way to harvest organs from death row inmates. This would be a huge step in the medical field, but at the current time, lethal injection, gas, and the electric chair all hurt the organs. These are the most widely used forms of execution.
Firing squad.......I guess the only thing that wouldnt be of use would be the heart.
Or, they could use the death row population to find cures for diseases that we dont have. What better lab rats could you find for a disease in humans?
Have her drawn and quartered.............Napoleonic Fury said:I think we should bring it back old school. First we should cut her arms off and then death by firing squad. Now thats something they should have in Texas.
