Ooops, meant to say "such a sensitive issue" not "touch a sensitive issue".

I agree with Kristie: it depends on the crime. Very often a criminal that is put in prison can be released for "good conduct", and very often that same criminal is just set free to do rapes & murders as before.

It makes me angry to think that I (with the taxes I/we pay) will be paying for that F*&?%"! person to be roting in jail, while this money could help children in developing contries in order to eat, have an education and a decent life

I agree with that. Why spend (waste)our tax dollars to feed and shelter a capital murderer, etc.. If they were put to death then the money could be spent on better things.

In the U.S. the average cost of housing a prisoner for 1 year in a maximum security prison is 38,000 dollars. He get an education (college)3 meals a day (which are much better than the public school systems has) cable televison, internet access, free medical care, exercise rooms (some prisons have full sized swimming pools)...all at the tax payers expense. (Free lawyers too..for "If you can not afford a layer, one will be provided for you"...)
Now the scary part...it costs an average of 107,000 dollars a year to keep a prisoner on death row...where he has limited access to the thing a prisoner in a max. security prison has. Why? For their FREE legal defense!!! Now...my family of 6 could live QUITE well on over a 100 thousand dollars a year....isn't that just obnoxious?!
