There are some crimes (noncing, for example) where an individual will either a ) always be a threat or b ) if genuinely reformed, should be unable to live with themselves.

For these crimes we should save ourselves some money and them some anguish and euthanise them.

Of course, such euthanasia would have to be DL exempt...

Lol at glitter gag...

Regards to op, hell yeah. Problem comes when we argue over what constitutes a capital crime. Eg

Peado = life, no parole.
Tory = death. And their kids. And their neighbours for harbouding them

Zero public hangings in Scotland :(...

Damn ... I should've included the answer "No, except for Gary Glitter"

There was a letter in the local paper (P+J) today written by a Doctor of some sort. He was advocating bringing back both capital and corporal punishment as a means of justice for criminal offences.
His letter was prompted by a recent story where a man had been sent to prison for brutally beating his girlfriend's baby son to death. The Doctor refused to accept that the state, and he as a taxpayer, should support the life of this 'monster' whilst in prison. Thus executing the murderer was the best value to society all round. I don't know what he thought his letter would achieve, but by the end of it my thoughts were less focussed on the evil baby beater, and more focussed on the fact that the writer was a bit of a nutjob.

I predict that tomorrow someone will take an over the top view opposing what the Doctor wrote - and I'll probably disagree with that nutjob too...
