Jim Carroll BS: Madeleine McCann - Possible Suspect (101* d) RE: BS: Madeleine McCann - Possible Suspect 19 Jun 20


Can't disagree with that Baccie - my reservation would only be the woeful inadequacy of mental health treatment, or even taken seriously
The bumwipe press regards it as a let-out, and to a degree, takes the public with them, wealthy villains who can afford good legal assistance often use it to escape their crimes
As t stands at present, it's the best we can expect
Castration is not unlike capital punishment - too permanent to be feasible should it be found to have been applied to the innocent
Chemical castration was once the choice a homosexual was given as an alternative to prison - well within all out lifetimes - one of Briatin's great wartime saviours, Alan Turing's acceptance of this led eventually to his suicide

Capital Punishment was never anything more than institutionalised murder
My favourite quote on the barbaric practice, from 'The New Statesman', ends a brilliant little book on its history. 'The Fatal Gallows Tree' by Jonn Dean Potter, 1965   

Its description of how Britain's, 'great and good' gathered their forces to retain it has never been bettered

"From the hills and forests of darkest Britain they came : the halt, the lame, the deaf, the obscure, the senile and the forgotten — the hereditary peers of England united in their determination to use their medieval powers to retain a medieval institution."
    It took nearly another 10 years to get the Bill passed. While the last Bill for abolition was placed before the House of Commons hanging was suspended—and never renewed.


This book should be compulsory school reading (still available with a little effort)
Jim
