    I would imagine that the death penalty has been discussed at considerable length on here, so I'll just throw in my two penn'orth.

    Yesterday I read this, about one of the murderers of the two French students in south London, a horrific case. Sonnex has been jailed with a minimum term of 40 years; even then there is no reason to assume he'll be released.

    Now I've never been a supporter of the death penalty, and never will be. To me, it's always been more about vengeance than justice. And when Britain had the death penalty it was the mandatory sentence for murder, resulting in many people being hanged when they really ought to have been reprieved - Ruth Ellis and Derek Bentley perhaps being the best examples.

    People say that the murderer's life in prison is too cushy; it won't be, while he's held in a maximum security institution, but eventually he'll be transferred to somewhere with an easier regime, then to an 'open' prison; he'll have a social life of sorts; eventually he'll be allowed supervised home visits. I for one would like to see vermin like this kept in permanent solitary confinement, and if it drives him mad, so much the better. They shouldn't try too hard to stop him taking his own life either.

    Is it just me, or do a disproportionate number of murderers go by three names?

    Should burn him alive in an electric chair by not sponging him.
    We'll just give his mouse to Tom Hanks and all will be well.

    Ian Brady has been trying to kill himself for years, is being kept alive my drip basically. He says he's in unbearable pain due to it, but refuses to eat as he wants to die. Families of his victims say his physical pain is nothing to what he inflicted out, and are quite happy for him to suffer



    Now is that a good or a bad attitude? Undecided personally, just canvassing opinion

    I think we need to strike out all the other options first.

    Yeah I can see both sides tbh. Normally I would say 'let him die' (especially after 40-odd years inside) but it's hard to adopt a compassionate attitude to someone like him.
