Maybe we should consider really really boring Life Without Parole (if we can't fix the 12 years on Death Row insanity).
No TV, gym, roommate, free education, basketball games, visits, entertainment of any kind, etc.
Just locked in a room, alone, forever. Ok, maybe books.
Sort of like the poor young women imprisoned in the sicko's house in Cleveland, without the rape. (I'm not suggesting the treatment many receive in non-Western prisons. We are not animals.)
I might prefer death to that.
Wouldn't cost a lot of taxpayer money either.
