58. It keeps repeat psychopaths from raping and killing again.
It's a waste of resources.

Why should good working Americans live in poverty when we've got those vermin get food, housing, work to do, education...

Of course, take away a person's ability to live and some of them go bonkers (the movie "Falling Down" comes to mind...)

And it isn't a deterrent. Some people have a lower threshold for civility. Or think that "freedom" is another word for meaning "having nothing left to lose".

Which brings up a point; how about the corporate criminals like ken lay and his ilk? They've done far worse than kill their ex-employees. They've hurt them. Like a rapist would. But we are by, of, and for the corporation. That much is increasingly obvious. So they can do what they want. For they are above the law$ that 'guide us'.
