So life can mean life

Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

I posted in May 2008 band March 2010 about the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe, and his attempts to get out of jail having served 30 years for murder & attempted murder.

The High Court has finally decided that in his case life does mean life & he should never be released. He had appealed against a decision two years ago that he should never be released having attempted to murder 2o women between 1975 & 1980 (he succeeded 13 times).

I expect the European Court of Human Rights will probably have something to say on the matter when his legal team take the case there later this year.

    I would have hung him then, and I would cheerfully hang him now. Human rights? What about the rights of his victims and their families??

    As said above, hang him. He is never going to be released so why should the taxpayer fund the rest of his life.

    Bring back the Death Penalty.
