    Yeah, I don't understand the death penalty being "symbolic" in California.

    Having killed two children, wouldn't CM be a target for retaliation by the other inmates? I read that Scott Peterson was getting along ok with inmates despite killing Conner however.

    I hope we all have the same number of hours until it happens, it's just going to be different times for us wherever we are watching.

    Omg! I know you are serious, but I find that so wrong on so many levels.

    To prolong it that long is so unfair to the victims, and their families. Plus it allows the convicted to remain in jail much longer rather than sent to prison as quickly as possible.

    Is this only done in CA because I've never seen any other state wait that long.

    Imo CAs justice system is so screwed up. Do they not even care about the family members at all? Everything they do is so abnormal compared to other states.

    Imo, the reason it takes so much money to house death row inmates is because CA never executes anyone. CAs appeals process is unnecessarily long. If other states can have a much faster appeal process then so could CA.

    Just think if they executed even 75% of the 700 +who have been on DR for decades look at how much money it would save the state. A state where taxpayers are already taxed to death, and so much money wasted every year on other less important issues.

    Morning!

    I would certainly think so. The sad reality though is so many in our prisons have murdered little children now even pedophile murderers.

    If any general population I guess these type of murderers protect each other.

    In truth inmates who have murdered children or murdered others aren't often harmed.

    We have seen a few cases where it has happened like one of the pedophile priest when he was murdered by another inmate , and in Dahmer's case.. It doesn't seem to happen as often as we may think.

    Thank you.

    I havent watched HLN since the Arias trial ended years ago.

    Do you think other national channels will cover it as well?

    They have a lot less freedom inside the prison. From what I understand.
