Letter: Life sentence

Thirty-one years on death row (after all appeals were executed), now two prisoners with life sentences escape from prison. This must change and here is my idea. All getting a life sentence for murder have five years to file all appeals, after which they will have their choice of either a firing squad or electric chair (no drugs, which nobody wants to make). I do not think we would have any trouble getting volunteers for the firing squad. If we get enough people behind this idea, maybe we can change our laws.
