If life sentences really meant that the convict serve his entire sentence until death we wouldn't need the death penalty.You get all of the death penalty advocates yelping that innocent people have been put to death and maybe,maybe there have been but I don't know if that's ever been proven in modern history.But they are even against the death penalty if someone killed 10 people at halftime on the 50 yard line of the Super Bowl in front of 2 billion witnesses. Here is my ?????the problem we have in the U.S.A.over the years is that people convicted of murder who were sent for life sentences got out in 20 years and killed again.There may have never been an innocent person executed because he was given the death penalty but there are 1000's of people killed by murderers who were given life sentences and got out at 35-50 to kill again. Why aren't the bleeding heart democrat commie libs concerned with those statistics where all of these innocent lives are being snatched away because the convicted killers were let out in 15 years of a life sentence for murder. Once again,we normal people have to reason and put up with the kittywampus loony left that believes good is bad and bad is good.
