    Ask anyone-99% of PA reidents want all these idiots executed.Those dumb lawmakers in harrisburg are supposed to be our employees.If I don’t do what my employer wants-i’m fired.Why don’t they do their job?What the stupid holdup?

      How about mass executions? Ex: Behead one with the rest of the inmates watching in horror until it’s their turn.

    Tax money wasted with room & board & paying for lawyers for these people-death sentence should be exactly what it states.”Death sentence.”

  • CJ

    Anyone convicted and sentenced to death should have NO MORE than 90 days in which to file any/all appeals. Once that 90 days is up, carry out their sentence. It would save a lot of taxpayer money.
