Whole life sentencing. Against human rights or not?
It seems the European court on human rights has ruled that the UK is breaking the human rights of killers by keeping them in prison without chance of release or review.
Surely some killers should be kept in forever without parole for the general safety of the public in general?
It is not against human rights. If the criminal has done unforgivable acts, then the judge has the right to do so in order to maintain peace and order of the country
What about the human rights of the person(s) he has killed? It seems their human rights were violated when their life abruptly ended.
As the consequences for violent crimes become less and less stringent, criminals will become even more emboldened to commit such acts.
For those of you who oppose whole life sentencing and the death penalty: have it your way, but don't come crying for justice when you become a victim of violent crime. You are a contributor to it.
Ridiculous, who wants those killers walking the streets again? if the European courts wants them released, then maybe they should ask the UK government to release them into their custody, I am curious to see which country will accept them.
Its always easy to tell people what to do, but I want to see if they are willing to have killers walking in their backyards. In my opinion a life sentence is a life sentence.
