Thread Name: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
Subject: RE: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
"People who commit crimes such as those of Brady are the embodiment of evil, and should have no place in society."

Agree, but in prison they are out of society (or should be if the prison is run properly, and why I don't agree prisoners should get the vote). Killing people isn't the answer, and there are no winners in capital punishment. It demeans us and causes terrible suffering for a lot of other innocent people who are involved through no fault of their own.

Brady was a piece of shit, he played the likes of Lord Longford like a fiddle and whatever hell he's in now, he fully deserves it. Killing him though? Not an answer in any civilised society.
