Here's an interesting ACLU opinion piece you might enjoy if you and Ben haven't read it yet!  here's just a snippet >

The latest incarnation of this betrayal of the Bill of Rights is the ACLU’s refusal to support criminal justice reform legislation that strengthens the mens rea requirement for most federal criminal statutes. Translated from the Latin as “guilty mind,” mens rea is a legal phrase that describes the mental state of mind formed prior to the commission of a crime. Traditionally, the law requires the government to prove that a defendant was aware of and intended to break the law before he can be punished for doing so.

The victims family do not.
So if the death penalty was reinstated it would not be the victim or the family who voted for that....it would be an impartial group of people who considered the case without emotion or prejudice.

Why on earth should the people who have been victims of the guilty party have to then act like the executioner....it's not a' Death wish' film ...it's real life.

you are doing a didge on me...repaeting the same argument in 50 different ways after I answered it....

what is the purpose of a DP?

and in answer to the question you merely rephrased highlighted above

Because if they dont wish to do so then they clearly dont want it enough......

how about taking some personal responsibility for what is done ...in your name

You can't have a death penalty for certain crimes but then say it can only be carried out if one of the victims or their family members are prepared to do the deed...


The responsibility is one of the state to oversee and carry out on behalf of the people and the rule of law and justice as a whole.


Vic saying he would want to do the deed unto anyone he feels deserved it for whatever reason of his own choosing is not only vindictive but also advocating a free for all in the application of right/wrong/law/order for any individual to make up as they see fit...

As for the death penalty being seen as some sort of revenge...I dispute that.
Revenge is wanting a person who has no hope of ever being freed suffering every day of their lives living with what they have done.

It's also a way of ending the trauma for victims being constantly reminded of whats happened to their loved ones.....the press love to carry stories of mass murderers, think brady, Hindley, Ripper, etc etc.....constant grief for victims families every time their names are mentioned.

And lets not even mention the economics of keeping some worthless soul alive, fed, watered  and safe for decades..

tommy you are wrong ...read what I posted above...nothing to do with a free for all or outside of law....

in fact its MORE "just" becasue the victim/offended against would gain the right to say no, not in my name and commute said sentence...

how can giving the victim the chance to show mercy, if they wish, be unjust.

as to your comments about economics syl...thats just plain evil.....

Nah....it's more evil to watch kids die in hospital  because the funding isn't available to help them live.....or neglect dementia sufferers by denying them adequate care, or cancer patients dying because expensive equipment isn't available.......when all the while  millions are spent annually  keeping worthless criminals locked up for decades....that's evil imo.

that could be said about a lot of things...the real truth is the cost of keeping those alive that would be executed is not, in the grand scheme of things a great amount...

dont forget brady...and by extension if it came to it hindley......would likely never have hung anyway...brady was found criminally insane...and we DONT EVER.....hang an insane person....

hanging paedos is possibly severely counterproductive.....it likeley would lead to far more dead kids......if someone is going to hang for molesting a kid...they may as well go the whole hog....dead people dont get to say anything at all...ever....

and so on....

AND...what are you going to do when a mistake DOES happen eh??? dig him up and say sorry....

say sorry to HIS kids/widow etc....

SORRY????

after all THEY are guilty of at least complicity in murder then too...albeit a "state sanctioned murder" but murder non the less

you get called anti British if you don’t say Britain is the best all the time. The fact that Britain is First in literally nothing is not relevant to them the fact that Britain IS responsible for a lot of these issue that extend from the Bad old days when Britain was in charge is perpetually ignored in favour of their Eurocentric propaganda.

Basically they will do everything they can to make you Anti-British. Suspect Suspect Suspect Suspect

Post by Raggamuffin on Thu May 19, 2016 9:04 am

The death penalty is just wrong IMO. I would never want someone to be killed if they had killed one of my loved ones. That would make me as bad as them because it would be revenge. I worry about the souls of the people who do the actual killing, except they don't actually kill the person with their bare hands. No, it's all sanitised so that they're not in the room and they can distance themselves from the whole thing.

Half the time they don't know if they actually killed the person. In firing squads they use blank bullets so that none of them actually know who fired the fatal shot. Well if you're going to be in a firing squad, at least face up to it, and don't take the coward's way out and say - well it probably wasn't me who fired that shot. If it's going to traumatise you to kill someone in cold blood, don't get involved in the first place. Would a judge or a jury be prepared to sentence someone to death if they were told in advance that they'd have to stab that person to death themselves? No, they would not.

John Ellis was said to be traumatised by the execution of Edith Thompson, which he carried out, and he committed suicide later. Well he should have thought of that before he killed all those other people. May God forgive him.

And yet you didn't give a thought to the parents of David Blakely. You didn't think about how they felt to know that a woman had chased him around a car and shot him in cold blood, and then shot him again and again as he lay injured on the ground, cutting short a life and taking their son away from them.

whilstI would of course disagree with your "religious " take on this ragga (and thats not criticism btw) I agree entirely...

IF you are advocating the DP you SHOULD be prepared to face the personal responsibility for carrying it out...as I said to do otherwise is moral cowardice....

of course there ARE cases where perhaps the DP IS relevant...think of the nazi war crimes and such...some things are so terribe that destroying the perpetrator is, possibly, due justice. but beyond that its just wrong...

personal thirst for revenge I can at least understand, society howling for some sort of revenge for its "vicarious victimhood" is just pure "mob mentality"

I've seen people say that the death penalty should only apply in cases where it's absolutely certain that the person is guilty. That makes no sense to me because it makes a mockery out of the whole justice system. Is one person who is found guilty more guilty than another person who is found guilty? Of course the system is flawed and nobody can ever be sure that someone is guilty, but to say that one person is more guilty than another ridiculous.

IF you are advocating the DP you SHOULD be prepared to face the personal responsibility for carrying it out...as I said to do otherwise is moral cowardice....

of course there ARE cases where perhaps the DP IS relevant...think of the nazi war crimes and such...some things are so terribe that destroying the perpetrator is, possibly, due justice. but beyond that its just wrong...

personal thirst for revenge I can at least understand, society howling for some sort of revenge for its "vicarious victimhood" is just pure "mob mentality"

Absolutely - it's cowardly. Do those who merely pull a switch or possibly use a blank bullet think they have no responsibility for killing another person? Is the very long appeal system designed to make judges feel better so they can tell themselves that they did the "moral" thing and gave the condemned every chance?

They will answer for what they did one day.

you get called anti British if you don’t say Britain is the best all the time. The fact that Britain is First in literally nothing is not relevant to them the fact that Britain IS responsible for a lot of these issue that extend from the Bad old days when Britain was in charge is perpetually ignored in favour of their Eurocentric propaganda.

Basically they will do everything they can to make you Anti-British. Suspect Suspect Suspect Suspect


Well we don't kill people any more because as a nation we think it's immoral. Like I said, in the US and other countries they've sanitised it all so they can pat themselves on the back and tell everyone how "humane" they are. If someone is going to bring up history in order to detract from that, that's their own fault.

But our laws have changed, modified and become more humane.   Executing someone won't bring the victim back.   I'm not even sure it would me any satisfaction at all to know that a murderer was dead, I'd rather they were living, being shown a mercy that they didn't give their victim and having years to contemplate their crime, with perhaps the hope that they end up genuinely sorry with a chance of their own spiritual redemption.

Idea

I'M AGAINST the death penalty in general, on principle, for one simple reason --

WHENEVER it has been in place in first world Western countries, it has inevitably resulted in 5-->>10% of those hanged (depending on the jurisdiction..), later on either being proved innocent, or else found to be less guilty then what should actually warrant the death sentence in their case !

"It is better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent person should suffer.."
Blackstone's Formulation, in English Law.



AS FOR  during times of war, a bullet to the back of the head could deal with a lot of clear acts of treason on the battlefield or on enemy territory -- "no questions asked, no lies given".

AND WHEN it comes to families wanting "somebody" to pay for certain crimes -- even when that 'someone' isn't actually the perpetrator  --  one only has to see some court cases reported on TV, where a victims' family is baying for blood,    anyone's blood  !!!            Suspect

And yet you didn't give a thought to the parents of David Blakely. You didn't think about how they felt to know that a woman had chased him around a car and shot him in cold blood, and then shot him again and again as he lay injured on the ground, cutting short a life and taking their son away from them.  

I didn't give it any thought at the time...I was a young child.

As for his parents grieving, of course they must have, just as hers did when she was hanged.

My point was and still is she would not have hung today even if we still had capital punishment.

Of course the pain never goes away...any parent of a dead child knows that.
But when your child is sexually abused and murdered....and is caught on tape as happened with Lesley Ann Down, then for decades after, the murderers and anyone who has contact with them regularly hash all this up again in the press....ensuring that the familys re live it all like bloody groundhog day...over and over......don't you think that would make the torment 100 times worse?

That's one case....there are many more.

that could be said about a lot of things...the real truth is the cost of keeping those alive that would be executed is not, in the grand scheme of things a great amount...

hanging paedos is possibly severely counterproductive.....it likeley would lead to far more dead kids......if someone is going to hang for molesting a kid...they may as well go the whole hog....dead people dont get to say anything at all...ever....

AND...what are you going to do when a mistake DOES happen eh???   dig him up and say sorry....

say sorry to HIS kids/widow etc....

SORRY????

are you THEN prepared to hang everyone involved in the "mistake" ?

the judge jury police forensic "experts" witnesses???

after all THEY are guilty of at least complicity in murder then too...albeit a "state sanctioned murder" but murder non the less

see the problem I have is ...folks want a system...but want neither responsibility for it nor to be actionable for its errors....

yeah ...lets hang em all...and bugger the consequences, sod the odd innocent victim....we dont care.....WE WANT OUR POUND OF FLESH.....but we dont want to know about the "other side" the dark, bad side. We want our charade of "justice"....our "show trials" and our sense of "vicarious victimhood" satisfying....whats that you say...new evidence shows our "dancing puppet" was innocent.....oh well...never mind...he must have been guilty of something . and we can all of us walk away from it blaming the "system" and noone needs be punished.

pfffft....PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY........


which is WHY.......if you havnt yet worked it out ....I DONT support the DP......though sometimes I could put that aside for certain individuals...but I realise that THAT is arbitrary ...and THAT is one thing the law should never be.........

I mean you didn't give it a thought when you were talking about Ruth Ellis on another thread. You saw her as a victim, instead of seeing him as the victim, along with his parents.

Why do you say she wouldn't have been executed today if we still had capital punishment? You mean the courts would have said - poor thing - she didn't mean to slam four bullets into her boyfriend who tried to escape? For a start, she would not have legally had that gun, so that would have gone very much against her.

The law on capital punishment had changed a lot before it was abolished. in 1957 it was changed whereby only certain types of murder were punishable by death, but that included murder by shooting, which would have included Ruth Ellis.

From what I have read (not recently) I did see her as a victim, so was he, there is often more than one victim in a murder.
I dont see things as cut and dried as you do....there is usually a build up in domestic abuse cases, no matter how they end.
He was violent and unfaithful, she was pregnant, he beat her up so badly she lost the baby....now if she had killed him then and there she would not have been charged with murder.
As it was she thought about it, got hold of a gun....whether she pre meditated actually murdering him who knows....but she did.
All that should be taken into consideration, and I believe today it would be.

I don't believe in the death penalty for every murder.....terrorism, child rape and murder, mass murder.....in fact I think I would be pretty lenient if I was the judge.
I may have to rethink and toughen up. Cool

Of course it was premeditated. She waited for him to come out of the pub and then just shot him.

You only hear her side of it because she's portrayed as a poor little victim. She had ample opportunity to walk away from Blakely. She didn't need to live with him, and she didn't need to keep getting pregnant. Blakely offered to marry her the first time she got pregnant, and she refused and aborted the baby. She was two-timing him with Desmond Cussen as well, and lived with him. Blakely understandably started seeing other women, and Ruth didn't like that. He was no threat to her when she shot him - he'd been to a pub with friends - she sought him out to kill him in cold blood.

It's ages since I read up on it all so details are sketchy.

I do remember reading he beat her up so badly she lost their baby.

Also, she didn't get pregnant on her own, he helped, don't forget in these were pre pill days...the onus was often on the man to prevent pregnancies....why didn't he?

I don't know that she is portrayed as the 'poor little victim'...but she was the last woman to hang in the UK,so there has been much interest in her story and her life, which was by all accounts  pretty sad and mixed up.

Why was the onus on men? She could have said no - she already had two kids, and had had two abortions. Did she think about her children when she committed murder? Her son was 10 at the time and killed himself later, as did her ex husband.

I do think she's portrayed as a poor little victim. David Blakely couldn't defend himself could he? Others could say what they liked about him. Ruth didn't really fight the sentence very much, probably because she knew that she couldn't justify what she did.

Well, this has been an interesting read; but the entire premise about laws of man and the need for punishment for abusing those 'LAWS' means that there is repercussions for disobedience and the need to protect the majority from the few that ignore society standards and disregard those LAWS. 

So we have evolved from squalor/dungeon type of imprisonment to something akin to a hotel with fringe benefits; 3 meals a day, entertainment, heating, A/C in some facilities, laundry, clothing, PE, library access, internet capability, education, mental & phsical health benefits, shop and minimal paid jobs at some facilities. 

Why would anyone that had nothing better to do with their lives want to leave all that to live on the street?

But seriously, if the LAWS of man were made to correct a thought process - redirect the offender by retraining that criminal behavior - providing the insane criminal some mental health - wouldn't we have a higher percentage of successes then we do now!  Granted my country is abysmal with our ratio due to the '3 strikes your are out' for any minute drug offense = over crowding in our penal system blew up drastically.

But if we aren't creating a 'revengeful/pay for your crimes' law system, then what exactly did we create? And you can describe it in all sorts of pretty wording...but it's still retribution for doing something wrong according to our LAWS and now you'll pay!
I just happen to think that some humans keep pushing the line of poor choices until they force the law to remove their life form from among society, PERIOD/DONE/OVER!

Get with the times. The death penalty for murder was suspended in Great Britain in 1965 and abolished in 1969, and in NI in 1973. The last executions in England were in 1964. You lot have had plenty of time to learn that it's barbaric, and yet you still persist.

If you're still befuddled by the connected dots from 'OUR HISTORY IS YOUR HISTORY' then just let it go and keep chalking it up to yet another British bashing moment; seems to be the stock response from you! Suspect

Get with the times. The death penalty for murder was suspended in Great Britain in 1965 and abolished in 1969, and in NI in 1973. The last executions in England were in 1964. You lot have had plenty of time to learn that it's barbaric, and yet you still persist.

exactly....a Modified copy

modified so much its almost unrecogniseable....

and....even OUR legal system bears NO relationship to the historical methods you mentioned...


you make it sound like YOU took our system and made it "better" and we just kept on the old way..

my point is you cannot make ANY point without comparing what YOU have NOW to what we (and most others) did 100...200 or 1000 years ago....

you are too fond of comparing apples with oranges in your pathetic attempts to "beat down" the brits....

At least WE have realised that state sponsored murder is not the way forward.....

Did you mean "one trick pony"? A "stick pony" means something else entirely, but I'm not going to say what. Laughing

That's one case....there are many more.

I think Brady's suffering is 100 fold for not being killed.  He's wanted to die for decades.

And that's what many people who are against the death penalty love....the fact that someone craves death and is being kept alive to suffer, which is a lot more vengeful than wanting to see someone put to death quickly.

The point is it makes no difference to me what the convicted want, they have lost the right to decide whether they live or die, starve themselves to death or linger for years like Brady......they should be dead.

Calm down...you have only mentioned him once before, and I highlighted Brady because HT had commented that he wanted to die years ago.

He was not found criminally insane at the time, so he would probably have been hanged actually.

syl....since you missed/dodged it last time round


"AND...what are you going to do when a mistake DOES happen eh??? dig him up and say sorry....

say sorry to HIS kids/widow etc....

SORRY????

SORRY WHY......and what good is sorry....

are you THEN prepared to hang everyone involved in the "mistake" ?

the judge jury police forensic "experts" witnesses???

after all THEY are guilty of at least complicity in murder then too...albeit a "state sanctioned murder" but murder non the less

see the problem I have is ...folks want a system...but want neither responsibility for it nor to be actionable for its errors....

yeah ...lets hang em all...and bugger the consequences, sod the odd innocent victim....we dont care.....WE WANT OUR POUND OF FLESH.....but we dont want to know about the "other side" the dark, bad side. We want our charade of "justice"....our "show trials" and our sense of "vicarious victimhood" satisfying....whats that you say...new evidence shows our "dancing puppet" was innocent.....oh well...never mind...he must have been guilty of something . and we can all of us walk away from it blaming the "system" and noone needs be punished."

I don't think I missed it or dodged it, I answered and said we obviously see things differently.

I said at the beginning of the thread that the death penalty should only be used for the most heinous of crimes and only when guilt is proved beyond a shadow of a doubt. Technology and DNA  testing has  advanced beyond measure since we last had the death penalty, so no mistakes could be made.

I never said hang them all (they are your words not mine)....I have already said hanging is barbaric.
I don't consider it getting a 'pound of flesh' either...I have already explained that to me the death penalty is not about revenge.

As I said we see things differently. Yesterday you were stating that the victims families should be the ones to carry out the death sentence if it was ever re instated, according to you it was cowardly and weak to expect the state to do it. YOU would want to do it yourself and look them in the eye when their lights went out....in fact you alternated between John Wayne and Mary Poppins throughout the thread.....at least my views have remained consistent.
