yeah i agree... it's probably a lot more torturous both for the innocent person and his loved ones if he has to be imprisoned for life. the kind of life he would lead in the prison would probably drive him crazy, if not suicidal.
does anyone have any idea why is it that life imprisonment always has a maximum number of years? why isn't life imprisonment really what its name suggests? do they just assume people's life would end within that 20-30 years?
