    Without legislation to change the endless appeals process, even if they do get the DP, they are still supported by the tax payers for years and sometimes decades before they are executed. The system is broke, just the way the liberals want it, so no one ever dies, they just milk the system for LIFE.

    there's actually TWO that have now been charged.
    Another article mentions no additions to death row this year. Seems like we've had lots of opportunity for 'that'! What's up Mr. Cooper?
