So if you ever decide to kill someone in a state which has the death penalty, eat a lot and get super fat and you will not be punished for murder.
What if the poor killer has a fever?
How about a tooth ache?
You gotta love America where overeating can actually save your life. Do you hear that food police?
Interesting that the first two people to comment couldn't actually be bothered to read the article. Why does not surprise me?
What is the point of having a death penalty at all if we don't use it until nearly 20 years after conviction. It seems not worth the hassle, equipment cost, drama, chance for mistakes, etc. Just lock them up for life and be done with it. Very few civilized countries still execute criminals.
Twin cit is correct just from a dollars and cents issue. The amount of money spent on both sides of an execution schedule far exceeds the cost of incarceration for life. Lockup up and forget em.
