It should be a life for a life and attempted murder should be life in prison with out privilges.Peadophiles should be stamped with a p on there forehead so we know who they are it would make this world a far more happier safer place.It won't be long before we are all too scared to go out of our homes too many incidents too close for comfort an everywere is the same latley.

I'm absolutely terrified for my children to grow up in this society. It's the next generation that are gonna be affected more and I'm thinking your both wrong, I think by the time they do get older prisons will ve there for them, normal well behaved people, to keep them safe from all the nuts on the outside, because nothing is going to change, criminals rights and beliefs are more important than those of law abiding people. How many cells are overcrowded, how many struggle to buy food over heating, how many have to worry that they cant afford to buy waterproof shoes cos their old ones leak.
It's crazy that everyone moans about it but yet nothing is done about because this country is to PC, and the government queen and country lost its power to become tough and become a safe place to live.
My biggest fear, were now too far gone to ever be a safe place to live.

until the idiot human rights fanatics get their heads from up their own backsides and accept that once a person commits a crime as serious as this they dont deserve to have human rights this country will never change. as far as im concerned you behave like a wild animal you get treated like one. if a dog attacks a human its classed as dangerous and put to sleep it should be the same for any person who takes or attempts to take someone elses life
