I say give him life in prison based on not having a previous record. Something was obviously very wrong with this situation.

Now, if we're going to fry him, lets do it right away, don't wait 10 years.

I just hope Casual Observer has a chance for a conjugal visit with Ashford before they inject him.

Wise Observer is always here, up someones rear end. You know, the usual... If the cop attempted to take the guy into custody unlawfully (Notice I didn't say illegally) then the guy had every right to defend himself from unlawful kidnapping and incarceration to the death.

Actually, it costs more to put a prisioner to death than to keep him 20 years behind bars.
Go figure.
Mean while, he gets a computer, college education, free health care, including dental, free haircuts, free food,lawyer, who will make countless appeals,
ALL on OUR DIME!!!!!!!

Those are simply the costs of a free and fair society which operates on laws. The price of his execution and the process preceding it are not to be considered. They simply are what they are.

So BizzyBee, I guess crime does pay. Actually, the state doesn't like putting people to death, they love the money they get on selling/leasing the bonds that underwriters and surety's create on the backs of the prison population. It's called Real Estate Investment Trust aka REIT for short. It's actually traded on Wall Street. Yes, isn't that interesting.Also interesting is the fact that the prison population has tripled within the past 10 years. Are people more bad now, than they were 10 years ago? Or has the private corporations called City's, County's, States, and Federal level just figured out a more lucrative way to appease their stockholders and shareholders? Yep, it's all about the money. Too bad there isn't any money, anymore..
