I read that over a quarter of people sentenced to death actually die before they are executed. And in a lot of the cases the people have been on death row for up to 30 years.
Surely there should be a rule that if you are sentenced to death you will die within a certain time period!
Imagine someone did something horrible to your family member and they were sentenced to death, and 30 years later they are alive and kicking on death row, it makes a complete mockery of the actual sentence, and a complete insult to the victims family.
If not prepared to kill them, just sentence them to life. Sentencing someone to death and letting them live for 20, 30, 40 years is just a joke and makes the system look pathetic and pointless.
