Last year, one of our local firefighters was shot outside of a local bar and grill. Wesley heard commotion and naturally wanted to help. When he walked outside, he was shot in the chest, murdered... Today, we receive news that a suspect is in custody for his murder and hopefully justice will be served. Rest in peace Wes.

There is not chance that he will ever get the death penalty here in GA because all it takes is one biased juror.
If he committed a capitol crime in TX it will be a different story.

this guys actions will cost all of us over a million dollars before he is back on the street again.

What is the answer? I like most of us believe in due process and reasonable treatment for prisoners that our founding fathers established but what would they have done?

Would they have given medical treatment to a death row inmate when cutting funds to treat our wounded vets.

Quote from Oregon article about giving a death row inmate a kidney transplant.

Legal and Medical Conundrum

In 1976, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that prisoners were entitled to the same medical and dental treatment as everyone else in their community. Prisons that withhold necessary care from inmates can be held liable for violating constitutional bans against cruel and unusual punishment
