OK, I-A-B, as you know, some states allow people with death sentences how they die. This guy is going out old school...

"He was sentenced to death in 1985, but legal proceedings have dragged on since then."

25 years, not bad for the legal department. I mean, he's only a convicted killer and all.

Yeah I know feiku. I was just trying to say to ten_speed that putting an "express lane" to execution is not really the best way to go about it. Just because DNA evidence exists, it's not a clear case of "Oh that proves he was there and must have done it, let`s put him to death now".

moefreak- I watch forensic files (the real-life version of CSI) and while CSI is a huge exaggeration of how things proceed in real life, methods of gathering forensic evidence and DNA evidence have improved GREATLY. It's not like they`ll find a random hair and go "IT`S THEM". It`s only if the person had some sort of connection to the victim and if the hair would be unusual at the scene had it gotten there any other way.

ten_speed, you've been watching too much CSI methinks. People have a completely twisted perception nowadays about how often any viable DNA evidence is available in crimes. For example, in CSI they often say "your hair was found in this persons house, how do you explain that". Perhaps the hair was stuck on someone`s shoe, and thus travelled to your house. How many hairs do you think you have from random people in your house right now? The trouble is, juries nowadays are unwilling to find someone guilty unless there is DNA evidence, because they think that`s the only way to know for sure that someone is guilty. Most often there is no DNA evidence.

Problem with the death penalty is it's not used nearly enough. The rest of the country should follow Texes` lead and put in an express lane to it.
On a more serious note however; the death penalty should be used more often with less appeals. We have DNA and all that other nifty stuff that doesn`t lie. It`s just the way we collect our evidence and such that`s messed up not the system.
