Is that fair? Is the system functioning correctly? That's what I'm trying to get at.
No, respectfully, that's not what you're getting at.
But to answer that question: obviously the state is either incapable of rehabilitating this man or unable or unwilling to continue to pay for the rehabilitation of this man. But that really has nothing to do with what we're talking about vis. the application of the death penalty.
