"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind"
‘Yay or nay’....
You couldn’t think of a more appropriate title for the topic in question?
Dead men never argue or make the same mistake twice .
Kill em all ..... very last one .😱
Yes, hopefully it would work as enough of a deterrent
In 2000, Roy Whiting abducted an 8-year-old girl called Sarah Payne in West Sussex and then murdered her. He was a child sex offender going back to 1995. She was found heavily decomposed in a field, her limbs were mangled owing to being eaten by animals, and her tissue so damaged the pathologist could not determine whether she had been sexually interfered with. We know she was asphyxiated and the jury were told her death was violent. Originally the judge ruled he would serve a life term in prison; it was reduced to a minimum of 50 years and then 40 years, at which time he can be up for parole.
In 2009, a search of his prison cell found that he had pictures of Sarah Payne stowed away. He cut the pictures out from newspapers and magazines. MoJ, in a confidential report, said: "It is of serious concern that the *security information indicates hidden newspaper cuttings of Mr Whiting’s victim and young girls were discovered during a cell search. ... It appears his interest in young girls continues."
It is fairly common for murderers to relive their murders as fantasies and it seems in his prison cell Whiting is no different. I don't know how we sit here and are quite content to allow this to continue; in effect allowing Sarah Payne to be violated every single day, when Whiting revisits what he did to her.
Just because murderers are vicious savages with no regard for other people's lives and refuse to see anything beyond their own violent animalistic desires, it doesn't mean that we should all embrace their ideology of violent savagery.
We no longer inhabit the brutal medieval era or ancient biblical "eye for an eye" times.
A world where state sanctioned violence and killing is endemic isn't a step forward, its centuries of regression into the cultural norms of the dark ages or worse.
