Not really good, just not immediately awful.

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.

A Federal Court in Seattle has recently found nearby public defenders offices unconstitutionally underfunded. Is King county next?

@24 thanks for pointing out the stupidity of that pedantic argument. I bet he doesn't get it.

@4 so compare, how often in Canada vs. US.

@9 fuck you. I am currently under-employed getting by with a string of moderate temp jobs. I have a long history of high level employment and a decent education. I know many others with similar qualifications and age who are chronically under employed. People like me are passed over for entry level jobs, and too many of us for the mid-level jobs out there.

Echo #9, construction workers in clean, shiny white hard hats say place concrete, the workers who actually build things say pour.
