Life in prison an affordable alternative to execution

BY YOUR NAME Staff Writer Published: May 11, 2012

In response to Mickey Fisher (Your Views, May 2): Execution is unnecessary, premeditated, calculated homicide by the state. The death penalty was once defended as vengeance of the public hatred. Neither vengeance nor hatred has any place in a system that seeks to be just. Life in prison, even without parole, is an affordable alternative, morally and monetarily.
