Why Casey Anthony Will NEVER Be Executed — Even If She Is Found Guilty And Sentenced To Death!

Tue, June 21, 2011 2:32pm EST by 11 Comments

Death row in Florida is so full and the execution process so expensive that Casey will die of natural causes before she reaches the front of the line!

That’s the opinion of Florida journalist Mike Thomas who’s reporting on the case for Casey Anthony‘s hometown newspaper The Orlando Sentinel.

In his explosive new column, Thomas claims those clamoring for the death sentence for Casey, while she’s still being tried for the murder of her two-year-old daughter Caylee, should get used to the idea of her spending the rest of her life behind bars instead.

He writes, “If she ever does make it to death row and gets in line behind the 399 inmates already there, she would be killed sometime in the 23rd century. Our last execution was 16 months ago. Since then, we have added 11 more.”

The reason why it takes so long to execute prisoners? The cost!

He adds, “The Palm Beach Post calculated in 2000 that the death penalty cost Florida $51 million a year, or about $24 million per execution. I hate to point out the obvious, but this isn’t working.”

“New Jersey eliminated its death penalty in 2007 after spending more than $250 million on death-penalty trials since the early 1980s and executing nobody.”

Thomas’ opinions are sure to upset those convinced Casey — if found guilty — should die.

What do you think, HollyMoms? Is execution “money well spent” and should Casey, if guilty, be fast tracked to the front of the line?

Or is it a waste of money that would be better spent elsewhere?

I don’t think she will get the death penalty either. Not only for the reasons above but generally speaking, juries don;t like to send young, pretty women to death. Thats just how it is usually unfortunately. But I do think if she is convicted and then just gets a term instead of the death penalty, she will be beat up or even killed in prison. Mothers who kill their children are looked at the same as child molesters in prison. So I say let the inmates deal with her

The assumption is, I’m sure, that she’ll suffer more behind bars. That assumption rests on another…that she has a conscious.

She doesn’t. She’s exactly like 99% of girls our there today of marriage age. Totally narcissistic and without empathy.

Truth is, it doesn’t matter. Cost will keep her from dying behind bars. Lack of empathy will keep her from caring the entire time she’s there.

Just give her life in prison. But put in in general population. Those old gals in there will save the Florida jusdicial system millions when they get thru with her for killing her own child there won’t be enough of her left to put in a gallon zip lock bag. Those girls have children they would do anything in the world to see and she violently kills little Cayley. LOL

I do agree to a point, but.. the way I see it her reasoning for killing little Caylee is because she wants to be free to live her own life and do what she wants. In jail she cant do that. So to some extent she will suffer and she will hate it

it’s not the actual cost of killing someone.. i assume the killing method costs no more than a few thousand dollars, and then security for those sentenced may cost more as well. the extra money comes in because it’s very common for those who receive the death sentence to appeal the decision to be reevaluated. the charges for court facilities and public defenders, not to mention the science and research teams who are assigned to re-evaluate the evidence, are the source of all the expenses.

I completely agree with the death penalty and think she deserves it whole heartedly. What she did was sick and she should receive the same treatment.

C’mon she would SUFFER MORE if she stays behind bar for the rest of her life! Death penalty is a quick easy way to discipline someone. If i had to spend the rest of my time in jail i rather die…. she will suffer more behind bars!

waste of money. regardless of how you feel about killing people, the whole system is messed up. the government (that is, taxpayers) pays the lawyers on both sides of killing criminals, and there is a lengthy system for appeals. the money could be spent on much worthier causes.
