Paying for death row

Why do we keep paying state sales tax, gasoline tax, income tax? Could it be to keep nearly 200 convicted killers on death row?

At a cost of around $110,000 a year to keep one killer alive, it takes a lot of our tax money. Do the math.

How long are we going to let this happen? For 10 more years, 20, maybe 40? Why? These killers have been sentenced to death. Why are we paying to keep them alive?
