Which is why I'm usually against it.
This is shaping upto be that rare case though. If what is said is proven in court, he's murdered a man, months later murdered the guys father, gone into hiding for a month, lured 2 unarmed officers to an empty house by calling in a burglary, shot them & thrown a grenade at them. Then walked into a police station to hand himself in.
Many murders are a crime of passion (hatred, lust etc), many are incident spiralled out of control (rivalries, robberies gone wrong, drunken fights). This one has ended (after 2 previous murders) in a pre-meditated, planned ambush on two innocent police officers who died because its their job to protect and serve. Its the sustained level of violence against indiscrimatite targets that makes me doubt my previous sound standing on the issue
Just seen on twitter my best mate (who lives in Broadbottom, about a mile from there) state how weird it is to see a murder scene covering the road you'd just jogged down the hour before
