California Having Hard Time Killing People; Supreme Court Having Hard Time Thinking


California now takes between 20 and 25 years to kill off one of their many pesky death row inmates. (The state also has 30 prisoners who have been there more than 25 years.) Still, sooner or later they get ’em—after all, the average age of arrest is just 28. (Really takes the fun out of it though, when they’re all old!) In short, California is finding that it is not spending enough money to kill people and so the whole system is lurching into a shambles. But it’s good news for the rest of the country!
