Should prisoners serving life sentences have a right to peaceful death in prison at a time of their choosing? Anyway, why should they have to endure life psychological suffering in jail when at the end of it all they will have to die in prison?
sort by best latest
But in law, death penalty is a tougher sentence than a sentence of a life in prison? They are opting for a tougher punishment.
I would have thought being in prison for life would be the toughest out of the 2 especially living with what they have done etc
The difference is that they're making the choice.
If they're choosing to die then it's probably because they feel it's the easier option. They shouldn't get to choose their own punishment (though IMO death shouldn't be a punishment anyway).
