Death Penalty

http://www.miamiherald.com/news/florida/AP/story/1081454.html

This is the perfect argument for the death penalty. It should be applied swiftly and not get delayed for years on appeal. Appeals should only be based on the guilt or innocence of the defendant and they should be the first thing the state or federal supreme court does for that session is handle the death penalty cases waiting in line.

The criminal in this case was a convicted murderer who then murdered another inmate and a guard. He killed them with a sledge hammer. A terrible and brutal murder, the guard was a woman. This criminal should be put to death right away. Murderers should not die of old age waiting for their death sentences to be carried out.

There is on other punishment that can be given to these life time criminals who kill, and kill and kill again, even in prison. This savage should be put to death before he kills another guard or another prisoner. People like this are too dangerous for guards to have to watch for twenty or thirty years; that's what the SGT Says.

No trial should ever take more than a month and no appeal should ever last more than a year.

Death row inmates should never be in physical contact with anyone.

I can see a complex trial may take longer than a month, but certainly not more than two or three. After that the appeal, at least for a death penalty case should be handled right away.

This lifetime of decades of trial and appeal is just wrong.
