The Death Penalty Alternatives for AZ are using the ja trials for their cause. Terrible!

 Death Penalty Alternatives for Arizona:

A list of some of the things that anti-Death Penalty advocates are notorious for using to try and abolish the Death Penalty.  

In this case:  It's about AZ.  



Peitzmeyer: Capital punishment is a spiritual and psychological burden

The Death Penalty Alternatives for Arizona advocates USE the largest Church in the World's religion:  "Catholicism."

A conservative shift on the death penalty

Marc Hyden, above, and Dan Peitzmeyer (below) might not agree on many political issues, but the conservative Hyden and left-leaning Peitzmeyer agree capital punishment, is bad public policy.

Note: This is the second story in a series on the death penalty and its future in Arizona and the U.S. There is a growing movement from organizations across the political spectrum that seeks to abolish the ultimate punishment.

Both groups share an amazingly similar platform in arguing against the death penalty, ranging from the risk of killing an innocent person, to the excessive costs associated with trying a death penalty case, to the cruel manner in which the victim's survivors are continuously notified of the killer's appeals status.

"It's like a scab we keep picking open," said Peitzmeyer. "That is cruel and unusual punishment for the survivors."

"Every survivor I've talked to says the system is broken," said Hyden. "If we just locked them up and threw away the key, they'd go away and be forgotten. There is no closure because the victim is still dead. The victim will always be dead."

^Every survivor?  IMO, he doesn't get out in the real World too often.  MOST of the survivors that I've talked to and/or have read their stories about someone viciously murdering their loved one(s) have stated that there's no such thing as "locking them up and throwing away the key," and that they DON'T go away to be forgotten.  

Welcome to the Real World fellow! The Death Penalty isn't about revenge.  The Death Penalty is about Justice.  In YOUR perfect little World there's never been an escape from prison, survivors threatened by the murderers of their loved ones, and once a murderer goes to prison they put on rose colored glasses and all of the murderers in there live quietly together and sing songs about love and peace all day long every day.  smh....

"High Profiled Trials"

In this particular usage:

The ja trials.

Reading over this BS this guy wrote in his article...this is what I got from it.  

1.  He "took" the "word" from someone in the media about how much it "might" have cost to defend ja, at face value.  (The media said it's true so it has to be true lol...After all, the media never lies right?  cough, cough.)  It could have cost AZ more than $3 million to defend her but that's not the point I'll make here.  
    He didn't ask the media for documents on how much it cost for her defense.  WHY?  He's trying to make the Prosecutors Office look like the bad guy to get more supporters for his cause:  to abolish the DP in AZ.  Anti-death penalty advocates have been playing this game for years.  This isn't the first case nor will it be the last case that they'll try it on either.  I did notice that they have "jumped on the media wagon" and are using this case, more so, than what they have tried using other cases in the past that is on their site.      
2.  He called Mr. Montgomery a liar when he stated a price on what it cost to prosecute ja.  He wants documents, proof.  I'm sure that someone will get a hold of that information and make it go viral.  When he gets that, I'd like to see documents of every dime shelled out for ja's defense and her appeals.  ja not only had the Public Defenders Office working on her case, she also had a privatized, costly, "death penalty qualified" attorney and his entire staff working on her case.  Let's not forget about the mitigation specialist/smuggler.  I'd LOVE to see ALL of those documents, receipts, on how much of what the defense made actually went on ja's defense.  Not really lol...just proving my point here.  
    While this man is wanting documents/proof from people...He should be considering that ja and most likely with help from someone(s) a part of team trash has hidden money for years during her incarceration that could've/should've went towards her very expensive trials, that she brought on herself by committing First Degree Murder.  I'd like to see the Federal and State(s) tax papers that ja and/or her family should have filed, every single year, since she's been incarcerated regarding ja's "art" business.  I read a report, via the media(yes, them again lol) that her "artwork" business was making quite the profit.  ja told someone in the media(that article is posted on this blog somewhere) that she had a "art" business before she got herself arrested for murdering an innocent man and that she would continue running her "artwork" business while incarcerated.  Where's the Court's documents stating what ja's business has made and might still be making?  I'd think that anyone claiming indigent status, yet is a business owner, would have to verify all of their income to the Court as it comes in.    

When these ant-death penalty advocates are done getting all of that...I wish that him and his team would PLEASE ENLIGHTEN EVERYONE AS TO WHY JA WAS ON TRIAL.  The Prosecutors Office DIDN'T murder anyone...ja DID.  The Prosecutors Office didn't have to "settle" for anything less than going for the DP.  It doesn't matter whether or not they got a jury to sentence her to death or not.  It was the Prosecutors Office that had the say and they made the call to go for the death penalty.    


   The Arizona Republic estimated that Arias’s defense alone cost taxpayers $3 million — twice what it is estimated it would have cost the state to lock her up without parole if she lived 60 more years (EJ Montini column, March 12, 2015).   

Commentary: Taxpayers deserve to know true cost of Arias prosecution
