Hawaii Prison Murder

| 1 Comment
How does a state with no death penalty punish a life-sentenced murderer who commits another murder within prison?  That has always been a strong argument for the death penalty.  The U.S. Supreme Court, for a time, even held this situation out as a possible exception to its ban on mandatory death sentences.

Hawaii may have inadvertently stumbled on to an answer.  You put your gangster thugs in a privately operated prison in a state that does have the death penalty.  Jim Dooley has this story for the Hawaii Reporter.

This needs to be a mandatory death sentence.
