If the evidence is concrete and no doubts at all, then I agree and would like hanging to be brought back for child killers. I know this sounds very heartless, but if ever anyone loses a child in this way you will understand.
The problem lies in obtaining the evidence, I agree with the other hubbers that the circumstances has to fit the crime, but then it leaves us with a decision, where do you stop, where do you draw the line?.
I am not in favour of life sentences as it is the tax payer who funds the criminals lifestyle. Many of these criminals receive an easy life, when our country is full of genuine needs such as the homeless.
