Time for capital punishment?
July 31, 2010 6 Comments
So the recent story of Ian Huntley wanting compensation really raises alot of questions for me. As pointed out in the comments to my previous post, a situation like this is absolutely allowed to happen due to considering the Human Rights of a prisoner. I accept that is the way the law is now. Though for me it means that the law should change. We hear too much about rights and not much about responsibilities.
I really cannot give any sympathy to a man such as Huntley. I personally cannot comprehend anyone who would offer such a person sympathy. So if we currently have a situation that exists whereby such a person can have compensation there is an easy solution. Re-introduce capital punishment. Protect these people once locked up until the day they face they face the ultimate retribution.
Would I support a move? Yes. Would the British public? Yes Will any politician suppport such a move. I hope so.
