If we used the death penalty more often, it may be more of a deterrent. We dont use it enough. But since we dont use it, we need to get rid of it because it is so costly to hold inmates on death row.
Inmates at least in CA get way too many privileges. In fact they get a lot more than a lot of working citizens who have no violent criminal history. It's disgusting!
Depending on his race, he may get killed in prison. But not always. I have absolutely no sympathy for garbage like this.
