Thread Name: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
Subject: RE: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
He suffered far more by being kept alive than he would have by being killed by the state. He didn't deserve mercy, but killing him lowers the state to his level, and our society should be better than that. The death penalty is revenge, not punishment.

The world's a better place without him for sure. Good riddance.
