The two biggest death-row cases in recent years, has been David Westerfield case, the murderer of 11 year old Danielle Van dam; And Scott Peterson, who murdered his wife Lacy and unborn son Conner. Those two cases alone, cost California nearly $10,000,000! These two cases are not isolated instances. And are, in fact, carried out all over the US. Please don't misunderstand me—I do believe in the death penalty, especially so in cases where public service employees (police and firemen) are killed. This said, whatever possible deterrents the death penalty carries with it, are less than moot as long as liberal socialists run the country!
