I've always heard the arguement be centered around the taxpayer cost of having to support an inmate serving life without parole.

I wonder what the comparison of costs would be for life without parole vs a death row inmate exhausting every legal avenue available and including the cost of the execution.

A case like this makes talk of costs seem a bit trivial and wrong.
I understand the expense of keeping a hardened killer alive for the rest of his life is difficult; However, if there isn't a sure way of knowing who a true killer is, then I would be unjust in saying that capital punishment is for all killers. I'd hate for there to be a mistake just for the cause of money.

I've been in favor of the death penalty, yes. Honestly, I haven't really taken time to research the issue on my own. Every now and then there's a Jodi Arias whom I believe should receive the death penalty; and then there's a case like this which makes me wonder how many truly innocent people are being executed because, mostly because they're poor and unable to get anyone other than a public defender. And as mentioned in the article, most public defenders are rejects who shouldn't be practicing law, much less taking a death row case.
