commented on Holding Three Simultaneous Death Penalty Trials in King County Is Unprecedented—and Hugely Expensive
Gary Ridgeway is a pretty good example of what's wrong with the death penalty. He is unquestionably one of the worst murders in the last century in our state. He was also unquestionably guilty. But because he was guilty and had so many victims, he was able to bargain and get a sentence of life without parole. If he wasn't guilty he would not have had the leverage. He also needed the high number of unidentified victims.
If he doesn't qualify for the death penalty, then who does?
People who argue for fast track executions are forgetting that we have a constitution, and rights to adequate defense.
If you think the death penalty is a deterrent look at Texas. It has both the highest execution rate and highest murder rate in the country.

I took a look at the WA Secretary of State and WA department of revenue. At this point there is no such entity as Savvy Orders in the database. Smells like a con.
