ok everyone will feel good for about five minutes. then what?? would the want for vengance subside or would u hang his lifeless body again and again to get the same feeling of justice being served and in the end walk away feeling empty
NOT all Australians
Lets talk about the judge who sentenced this this grub to a small sentence for raping 16 women before and the parold board for allowing him out early
Early - after 16 rapes? I'm sorry, that's a joke. And you know i'm not a 'get tougher on crime' kind of person, but that's a joke.
I think I would give Australia the rope and offer to help.
Well, you're wrong there. I'm an Australian and no-one in my family or friends believe in capital punishment - so it isn't 'the whole of Australia'.
But then there are a lot of Australians who 'just knew' Lindy Chamberlain was guilty. Idiots.
I thought Lindy Chamberlain was guily and I was wrong
Ok, now you've proved me wrong Ned, because you're not an idiot - so they weren't all idiots! :D
I don't believe in the death penalty. It was never there to deal with our anger and grief in a 'hang the bastard' kind of way. Civilised societies have moved on.
Hanging a murder/rapist (I'm assuming since you said young it was a child) isn't civilized or humane. It's actually heading up the ally of what he did, only not even close.
Something like that isn't about humanity or being civilized, it's part revenge, part dealing out a fitting punishment for a horrific crime. In Canada that's life (which I think is disgraceful), but it's a decision for a society to make, to step away from their general beliefs to deal with something like that.
In Canada, a "life sentence" doesn't actually mean you get sent to prison for life.
I feel like I need to move to Australia. Seem far more like my kind of people.
I do. But only for those who earn it.
16 women? Sounds like he earned it.
14 year old who murders his grandmother? Life without parole. Don't let him out, and no issues will be had.
I don't agree with sending a 14 year old to prison for life. Whatever happened to the Juvenile Delinquent Act?!
I don't agree with two 14 year old kids taking a hatchet and a hammer to an old lady till she bled out. I don't agree with the fact that right after that, they couldn't load her body in her own car, so they took the car and dropped it off at a bowling alley, where they proceeded to buy some pizza and hang out.
He did it. He took the police to the body. He needs to be examplified. Tiger pits and Crucifixion.
They want to make an example of him, he must have really shocked the nation for them to be demanding something like that.
Rapists don't deserve to live and I doubt i will become a commonplace thing in Australia.
It's always shocking, it really is bad, it happens all the time here, it's not that it's a lone case or it was especially worse than others, it is just an act that no one wants to happen anymore. Rid our society of them, any which way is fastest.
Nothing would be too drastic for such a person. Hang 'im high.
No, sure it is not civilised, but raping is.
Link me to the article please, I know nothing about this case and would love to learn more.
Sadly, I still haven't been able to find information about the man. All my google searches have been about the victim. >.> What exactly happened? Do you have the man's name or something? I'll just look him up on wikipedia.
would be good would make the next one think long and hard about it nobody wants a rope around thier neck been saying for a long time need to bring the rope back and in public
That's completely inhumane and degrading. Yes, I understand that it will make people wary of what to do next. But it's a bit too far.
Hanging IS the death penalty. But publicly and for children to watch, I disagree. It's disgusting.
Australia is civilized in their own right (every country and culture is). So you can't really distinguish civility truly. Not all agree, I'm sure.
Besides, America used to hang people publicly. They were called "lynchings". And for nothing at all: a different skin color.
Just curious.....there are plenty of these types of deaths in Australia, I bet. Why this specific woman?
I mean, why did they publicize her? As opposed to everyone else?
This case is pretty clear cut. He did it. He admitted to it. He pointed out where the body was. He took her life after raping her.
he gets life in an Australian prison. I don't envy him. But if he were shot by police and killed, who would would weep?
That's someone's son, brother, friend. They would weep.
And this shows that I'm ignorant of Australia. You have different areas like America has states (except a bit bigger)?
Do they each have state governments? Or are they even states?
But yeah...sounds like a large search.
I know that if my husband did something like that, yes I'd be embarrassed, but I would weep. And he's leaving his kids behind which will scar them too. So they'll cry.
I feel sorry for the family and what they will have to go through. But I'm sure they will shed tears.
The one government.....that's what another was speaking of....Thanks!
If my husband did something like this, I don't think I'd be able to feel sorry for him ever again..
I'm okay with that. I approve of public executions.
