    they belong.  State will spend less money taking care of them.  Death penalty is useless and expensive, and should be banned in all cases.

      1.They did not receive the death penalty.

      2 .I agree with you on the DP, but I take issue with the idea that they should not be afforded protection from harm and violence at the hands of other inmates (which seems to be what you are suggesting)

          they shouldn't do the time. They committed a horrific crime and received a just sentence.

          Last I checked human rights aren't supposed to go out the window just because someone is in prison. That includes being protected from acts of violence if you are a likely target (which they definitely are)
