Thread Name: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
Subject: RE: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
"An interesting link "
What's interesting about it?
The reintroduction of capital punishment is not under debate and will never be accepted again.
The article appears to be based on a prurious interest in the subject; it reaches no conclusion and the alternatives give nothing to persuade one way or the other.
You might just as well open a site on dog fighting or bear baiting - or maybe something a little MORE ENTERTAINING !!!
It might be 'convenient' for society to end a life, but that's not how society which claims to be "civilised" works
Taking a life it was once considered so wrong that it was once acceptable to take another life in recompense; contradictory logic.
Thankfully, those contradictions have now been resolved - hopefully forever
