Let courts reduce life-without-parole to include parole

Death penalty too easy; force perverts to do hard labor

Republican State Senator˙Wieland says his religious opposition to abortion has a moral flip-side; as a Catholic, he believes the˙government shouldn't be in the business of executing people.˙ It's not like Wieland is turning his back on the tough-on-crime ethos. The state senator says serving a life sentence in prison is far worse than a quick death.

Republican Representative Jim Neely, a co-sponsor to the House version of Wieland bill, took that argument to its logical extreme, "The perverts that perpetrate horrific crimes deserve much crueler punishment than we can constitutionally carry out as a State. Our best legal option is to lock these people away and force them to do hard labor until they die."
