Until he dies - whether a needle or natural causes -, the victims' family will be paying for his housing, health care, education if he wants, food, legal fees and whatever else he wants through their taxes.

I've been asked the question in the OP before, and it's very patronizing. Could I really be unaware that there's such thing as rapists and murderers? Would I really form my opinion without considering the terrible things people do?

Speaking of which, the death penalty is one of the terrible things people do. All execution does is fulfill our own hunger for violence. It's well established that it's completely ineffective for any other purpose. And I do not accept retribution as a reason to kill someone.
