What is it people like you do not get about "no one is saying he does not deserve to be punished".
It is his sentence that is the issue.
Thank God we are more civilised over here.
People like you call any talk about the victims of these killers "emotive drivel" (above)...it's not difficult to see where your sympathies lie.
We are more "civilised" are we ? I'm talking about what is "just" and "appropriate" punishment for a crime. I don't believe our lenient treatment of young offenders makes us any more civilised, our sentences are generally disproportionate in the other direction that's all.
You could argue that by putting a greater value on human life, and severely punishing offenders who commit the ultimate crime by taking a life, is more civilised ?
