For once we agreee. However,i wish it could not only be slow, but public as well.

The delicious irony is that Asswipe bought into the neo-nazi idea that, by carrying out his crime, he could incite a "racial holy war". But what he did so shocked the conscious of South Carolina that, after fifty-plus years of arguing, the Confederate flag was removed from the statehouse.

That approach didn't work out too well for Charlie either.

They could save a lot of money by just putting him in General Population and letting nature take it's course.

And Charlie is finally running out of time. By now, the slower the better.

Murph, the Aryan Brotherhood would protect his sorry ass.

Not to be picky, but given the proclivity of our government to jail people, wishing that nature takes its course and such is something we should be fighting against. Our jails are full of violence, abuse and rape...so why do we wonder about people reoffending?

Maybe we'd have better luck if non-hardened offenders were in a safer environment and received education and training for when they get released. Tossing some 16-18'year old into a prison where he/she is raped and beaten isn't serving anyone's purpose. This isn't suggesting we treat prisoners with kid gloves, but...

CP88, I knew of one state that had a dedicated cellblock for child abusers and kiddie porn users. Their deal was that if a defendant pled out to the charges, they'd get to go to that unit. If they went to trial, they'd go into the general population at some other prison.

I agree that there is something wrong with factoring the risk of rape and death into the prison calculus. But maybe it's a knock against me that the situation is lower down the chain of concerns that I have. If the Asswipe of Charleston or the Old Asswipes of Barber Ranch or the Asswipe of the Ambassador Hotel were to get shanked in prison, I don't know as I'd be overly choked up about it.

While my gut agrees, Comrade, we wish to be a nation of laws. To do that, we cannot allow the conditions that currently exist in prison to continue, to turn a blind eye in this way would be to allow people like tRump to win.
