I was always for the death penalty until i started researching it and seeing the actually cost to put someone to death. It costs us 4.2 million dollars a person. I do need to do more research though on how much it cost to keep them in prison for life for the reason i just saw some conflicting numbers from the NJDOC website and this one http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2006/Bi...500/171_S2.PDF
. But overall it does cost less to keep someone in prison. Also seeing that there have been some people convicted wrongfully or have been discriminated against.
* Please don't misconstrue I am not trying to convince anyone. Each person has there own opinions and that's what I am asking for these are the reasons why I changed my view.
