14 million across half a century? Yeah I'd say that was a reasonable amount to spend to keep him in the country's most secure psychiatric unit, rather than grant his requests to be allowed to die. It wouldn't have pained me much had that figure been raised by a couple of mill to keep him there a few more years.

I count more like 32 years, but whatever. And you're opposed to the death penalty, right? So every one of the lifers you're willing to pay say 35,000 a year, and whack jobs like this guy millions, you keep from killing them.

52 years.

Yes, I am opposed to the death penalty. My reasons for this are not affected by economic arguments.

Oh, they jailed him in '66, I thought it was '85, my bad.

Just like a socialist/communist/hippie, feeling free to waste other people's hard earned tax money.

They can sue the EU to pay for continued incarceration of later criminals who's crimes were committed while members.

I was under the impression that, in the US at least, lifetime imprisonment was less expensive than execution.

Not sure where I heard that.

That's because of all the mandatory appeals process we have here, but we aren't spending $18 million to keep them either.

That's not what it costs for imprisonment per se - Brady spent a lot of his sentence in one of the country's most secure psychiatric hospitals*

There are only maybe 1000 patients across the
three high security hospitals, and not all of them are convicted criminals. Most don't stay there more than a few years.

*I said Broadmoor earlier, but he spent more time at Ashworth. He was in Ashworth since the 80s.

3,000,000 ($3,910,800) to force feed him? Oh yeah, that's not a waste of taxpayer's money.
