This was a truly awful case of premeditated murder, I don't think there is much doubt about that.Trouble with death penalty is that there is no conclusive proof that it ever did actually stop murders being committed.I think maybe the real problem is that we all see prison as an easy life and perhaps for murder it should be a different form of prison sentence with what most of us would perceive as real punishment.The death sentence will never come back in this country or anywhere else where it has been abolished.
I beg to differ. What about killers who are released and kill again, killing children as well as adults? Where is the justice for a victim's family who suffer a life sentence when some killers are released after serving as little as 12 years in prison for taking a life?
The death penalty would be brought back if public opinion was a little bit stronger. Politicians are supposed to rule for the peoples will, not for their own benefit and beliefs. The trouble is that we are ruled exclusively by an educational elite who are the product of public schools and the Oxbridge stranglehold on this country. They are all toffs or aspiring toffs and liberal thinking do-gooders who want to tend over us, their flock, like some beneficent master.
But maybe you are right. The politicians can't even stop the present day bank's usury where my mortgage rate is ten and a half times the Bank of England base rate. How on Earth do I expect them to do the correct thing like executing Dale Cregan, Peter Sutcliffe or Ian Huntley?
