if you read the article, they don't even talk numbers. Its just a quote of a judge that says it cost 10x as much. the idea being that they bog down the courts with appeals for 15 years till they die. I would like to see more evidence then just some judge saying "its 10x more expensive" because of this i asume all of the "facts" are false

Executions require trained medical staff, including a doctor. Most won't do it, because that's not why people study medicine.
The drugs have to be carefully developed, like any other drug. That's why there was a recent scandal about experimental lethal injection compounds in privately run prisons. The drugs were free, but a victim took 2 agonising hours to die.
Death penalty court cases last longer and cost more for both the defense, the prosecution, and the courts. Everyone seeks an appeal if they can. Death penalty cases have higher requirements in terms of attorneys, and mandatory reviews.
Pentobarbital, the substance used to carry out lethal injections, is in short supply. This causes delays, and drives up costs.

Death penalty cases cost more than ordinary cases because all the lawyers, judges, and other personnel will put more hours into preparing, trying, and reviewing the issues, given that a life is at stake. more at www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/costs-why-death-penalty-costs-so-much

You're overcomplicating the issue. The simple answer to the question is that when someone is on death row, they can basically appeal to five different courts in an attempt to get the charges reversed (which doesn't happen that often). After the original trial, there's the Post-Conviction, you can then appeal to the District Court, then the Court of Appeals, then finally the Supreme Court. Because of the amount of time each event takes due to certain formalities that need to be saw to in regards to the death penalty, amongst other issues like scheduling. It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that death row people can go literally decades before ever actually seeing the electrical chair.

They tried the Baby crap at my first high school. Blasted it in the cafeteria at a volume that can't be healthy for ears.

People literally got up and left school. Just walked off. Those that didn't walk off the campus went home with migraines. Stupidest **** they've done, and that district did a lot of dumb ****.

That's because it's absolute ********.

It presumes that the person on death row will constantly petition for a retrial, where the one imprisoned for life will not, and that just is not the case.

No, it's logical. You can drive as fast as you can afford in countries where it's always the same general price. A millionare has no reason to drive the speed limit, I mean if you can afford it then why not go 10-30 km over the speed limit all the time? At the same time, if you're broke and paying the ticket will take half of your life savings then it's unfair, you'll learn the same lesson if it's reduced cause you're broke, cause $20 will hit you as hard as $200 will hit your average person and $2000 will hit your well off people and $20 000 or $200 000 will hit a really rich person. It's logical and I want Canada to adopt the idea ASAP.

Where I live if you speed multiple times, regardless of income, the government will give you points on your license and eventually revoke it. They money is secondary seems like having your license revoked is greater incentive to not speed than the fine.

The reason behind it, is a $400 speeding ticket means nothing to a multimillionaire. He wipes his ass with that kind of money so it's no deterrent to not break the law. He would be much more inclined to learn from his actions if it actually hurt him in some way, like financially.

But his insurance will still pay for the other person, and given that he has more money, the other person will have their car made brand-new and have all the hospital treatment they need.
I highly doubt that that law really prevents that many accidents. After all, people speed to a degree that would keep themselves safe, so the danger to anyone is slim to none.

Whether or not the other people and their car are taken care of isn't the point, mate. The point is to deter people from breaking the law, regardless of social status.

I take no comfort in him being able to pay for all of it. I'd rather my car stay how it is and not suffer from a broken body in the hospital, then go through years of therapy to maybe get to how I once was IF I don't die on impact that is.

He can be pressured into not speeding instead.
