    On bringing back the death penalty ? For certain crimes ?

    The recent cases in Northmptonshire ?
    A 1 year old and a 2 year old child killed by a father and step father ?

    That bloke in Scotland who kidnapped
    Raped and murdered that 6 year old girl

    Execute them ??? Or ?

    Perhaps a people's vote ?

    Chain gangs with tough RSM's as the overseers and then solitary confinement when back in their cells.
    Taking their life won't bring the dead person back and killing them is the easy way out for them.

    I am not supporting these child killers, but the News Media likes to pick out the most newsworthy of cases, making it seem they are isolated cases

    on average 5 Children per month are killed by their parents /family

    I'd want the b*stard that did it to suffer for the rest of it's life - the longer the better. In an ideal world, it would share a cell with a huge hairy-assed convict who would be capable of inflicting the level of fear and pain the was inflicted on the child - but on a daily basis for a very very very long time.

    Just a personal opinion (and yes I have a daughter!)

    Death penalty is an easy way out for these scum.

    Solitary confinement like the USA supermax prisons, totally alone in your concrete cell, no communication of any kind, lights on 24/7, that's real punishment.

    I have just quoted the statistics, The Death Penalty is unlikely to make any difference, It never did in years gone bye

    You could argue the threat of being locked up for life isn't a deterrent and is unlikely to make a difference.

    Oh I agree, those states in America with the death penalty have zero violent crime.

    It proves how well it works :ROFLMAO:

    I'm not sure that the death penalty or very long gaol sentences act as a deterrent but they sure as hell reduce the opportunity for reoffending

    Sounds like you need to move to a non violent, car less, drug free, god bothering enclave...

    The Amish are ideal for you (y)
