Of Course killing a policeman, or fireman should call for more severe punishment. We need to stop the d death penalty. but we need a punishment to replace it. I propose a "true life" sentence as such: The Offender would be sent to a prison with no option for pardon, or any sort of early release. On their death they would be interred within the walls of the prison. This is severe, but it preserves the sanctity of life. It, also, provides for the severe punishment a current death penalty case involves.
