    I never thought about it...how many die of old age in prison. Found a link, but not sure if it's typical for all states. :-)

    IMO if you are in prison on death row and you are trying to fight your case with appeal after appeal and you are guilty and there is no reasonable doubt then you foot the bill for the lawyers and all the costs that go with your appeal. I don't think they should get any appeals IMO. I think we have to many pieces of trash alive in the prisons as it is and rid the world.
