Murderer Back Behind Bars

One of the murderers of Jamie Bulger, the young Liverpool boy adducted in a shopping centre in 1993, has been re-arrested and is in custody.
Jamie Bulgar
At the time the 2 murderers were released from prison and given new identities there was a rumour they had moved to Australia but obviously not so.

I don't believe he is looking for parole, he will never get it.  I believe he is looking for a sentence to be passed down for a set number of years which could be 100 years.  He can't actually be released unless the Home Secretary agrees to release him, I believe this is what he wants changed, rather than having a sentence which is decided by a politician, he wants a sentence which is solid in it's nature.

Re: Murderer Back Behind Bars

The good old ever tolerant taxpayer again.
Does anybody else think that however its seen by the do-gooder's that perhaps for some crimes, capital punishment should still be an option? I hasten to add, the Bulger's killers at the time under existing law would have been too young anyway. But Sutcliffe wasn't...
Before anybody accuses me of being blood-thirsty, I actually remain unsure, I was only asking the question.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Murderer Back Behind Bars

A difficult one there Petlew.  I've thought about it many times and debated it often without reaching a firm conclusion but on balance I would not want capital punishment reintroduced.  However, when someone is sentenced to life then I think that should mean life.  Far too many times murderers are released after 12-15 years and I think this is wrong.
I feel extremely sorry for the family of Jamie Bulgar. I can't imagine what they are going through today after having this crime dragged up again.

What a misused word LIFE is....
Life sentence
Lifetime guarantee
Lifelong commitment Roll eyes

I don't have a problem with capital punishment....and before anyone mentions mistakes, all I can say is Collateral Damage.

Re: Murderer Back Behind Bars

Couple of related but dis-jointed points:
Before Sutcliffe was declared schizophrenic and incarcerated in Broadmoor, he was roundly set-upon by fellow inmates in jail, blinded in one eye in a stabbing with a ball-point pen, and another attack that only just missed the other eye were only a couple of the numerous attacks. Did he deserve this treatment? again I'm only asking the question, but I suspect I know the majority view...
Doesn't? capital punishment still exist for treason and certain crimes committed at sea by navy personnel. Also can't lords of the realm still be hanged with a silken rope for certain crimes. Or has that been repealed as well?

I have to agree with you there, Strat.
The Derek Bentley case comes to mind but we really need a proper deterent rather than the hand-wringing and do-gooder attitudes of recent years.

Yes, in that case the person hanged wasn't the one who did the shooting.  It was Craig who shot the policeman.  For many years there has been a discussion on what Bentley meant when he said 'Let him have it'  Did he mean shoot the policeman or did he mean hand him the gun?
