What happens if someone has been falsely accused and then they are killed?

I disagree with this bill, prison is enough.

I know two people falsely accused of rape, for one the girl admitted it and the case never proceeded. For the other, the case actually went to trail.

To think that men could actually not only lose their freedom but actually lose their lives due to spiteful womens lies is completely atrocious

There are no notes. Should bills like that not be automatically rejected, Andrew97?

What about some vape sentencing for a change?

Prison is enough of a punishment for rape. So it's a nay.

I can not support this bill, and will oppose it should there be a division.

I have always had the opinion that any legislation that includes the re-implementation of the death penalty / capital punishment should be opposed and I will stick to my views on the matter.

Absolutely not, I will never back any re-implementation of the death penalty. In addition to my personal objections, it should be stated that any re-implementation would be against our obligations under Protocol No. 6 to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms concerning the abolition of the death penalty.

Bills with no notes have been accepted in the past for first readings etc, and notes are not mentioned in the bill writing guide thread. As long as things like this are fixed before division (as bills should ideally have notes) then I see no issue.

False accusations are too risky. It’s too easy to say sex wasn’t consensual when it was as forensics can’t test this as effectively. I think rape should be punished with much longer sentences than it currently is, but the death penalty doesn’t allow people to be released and receive financial compensation if they’re found innocent later.

I don't know how much I can support the death penalty, but I understand the thought process behind it.
Rape is a crime fully capable of ruining, or via complications or otherwise, potentially ending a life. It's understandable to see that the crime in turn should be met with death.
Still, other honourable members have raised good points with regards to false accusations. If there was a length investigation conducted before and after, with no stone unturned, then this would be fine.
However, life doesn't work like that. Perhaps a grace period of maybe 5-10 years in prison could act as a safeguard for this? Though, this could just be prolonging something that doesn't need it.

I do not support a bill which will bring back the death penalty - miscarriages of justice happen - and rehabilitation should be the focus of the justice system. And if rehabilitation cannot take place, then a lengthy prison sentence, which can often be a stronger punishment.

i agree with the sentiment Glaz even if it is a legal impossibility. you missed or were not explicit enough to include oral and anal sex tho (which is the definition of rape in our current legislation). was that on purpose or a mistake?

No I can't support bringing back the death penalty under any circumstances, innocent people will be killed (as evidenced by the number proven false accusations recently), and rapists would not be properly punished, death isn't a punishment for many it would be vastly preferably to a life in prison. Do we really want the state to be deciding who lives and dies?

Rape Sentencing Bill 2020

AND INTRODUCING THE

Public Hanging Bill 2020

Andrew97

On behalf of the whole community I thank you most earnestly for bringing forward this long overdue legislation that finally recognises the vile, depraved & heinous nature of this crime.

Moreover I am honoured to be the torch-bearer to carry your most excellent initiative to the next logical step by introducing an amendment to require that the full deterrent effect be maximized by:

Televising the Execution


on all channels, including netfliz, utube and a podcast.

Saturday early evening, after tea but before dinner would be my suggestion with strictly to follow immediately after to lift the mood of the people.

I favour hanging using the long drop (which of course breaks the neck) - which is more merciful but I must confess I cannot come to a decision as to whether such felons be flogged before hand or not. Perhaps you may care to comment?

Completely against re-introducing the death penalty - it is absolutely not the right solution.

I’m not opposed to executing rapists but as I explained to Glaz in the other place, I would prefer for the Bill to be more nuanced by defining it specifically in terms of mass rape.
