I don't favor paying some $50k/year to keep a convicted prisoner in jail. But if you made a mistake, and find out it was not him/her crime you should at least pay some meager stipend to allow the prisoner to survive in freedom and old age. The other choice is kill him and bury him. Cheaper, for sure, but in my Mind, far from Just.

Cheaper? for sure?
