Good reason for capital punishment

Postby Ice.Maiden » 31 Jul 2013, 16:08

This poor child didn't stand a chance. I, and many others hope that the parents receive the maximum jail sentence possible.

I agree, and the method of their execution should be the same as that poor little boy. They're nothing short of despicable.

It really upset me Glenn. We've been reading about the case as it's unfolded. The parents denied everything at first, but as more and more admissions came out, the story changed from ugly to horrendous - in the vein of the "Baby P" case, where , in 2007, a little boy was cruelly and slowly tortured to death. Why, oh why, can't capital punishment be brought back for such callous and vile acts?

I think that child cruelty's probably always gone on in some form or other, but yes, people seem to be becoming more callous and un- caring.

This latest couple've now been given life sentences. It's the LEAST they deserve. The judge said that neither of them've shown any remorse at all, although the mother's said that she understands that some of her actions led to the child's death.

Horrible creatures.

I'd make their lives as uncomfortable as possible if I had my way.

I wouldn't WANT to, but these people have a job to do. More's the pity.
