He's just been given a whole-life term. Good.
hanged

hung is for pictures and bulls

we havent hanged anyone for fifty years
Even if CP was brought back, he wouldn't be executed.
Well he’s not going to be hung. Just be glad he got the maximum sentence allowed by the courts .

Because our laws and punishments are not based on perceived ecconomic niceties - and amen to that.

Not retrospectively - no.
Why not where there is no reasonable doubt that he did it? Also premeditated as he planned it by kidnapping her. Surely hanging was only a problem if there was any doubt he was guilty.

But when a whole life term is ordered they certainly ought to be
Always amazed at the view of people who try to reason that Couzens or Huntley or Whiting deserve to remain alive after the suffering they cause to their victims but also the families
That poor girls family and friends will live a sentence of their own
Would a quick death by eg lethal injection, not be easiest for the perpetrator as opposed to a lifetime in prison ?
Part of me actually wishes there could be a vote/referendum on this,as when it was over these debates would dry up (or would they?).

However how such a vote could be simply worded (without ifs, ands and buts I don't know).

Do I understand you to say that if, as in this case, a murdererer is going to spend the rest of his natural life in prison, we should balk at the financial burden on the state and opt not to invest in it, but to execute him purely to save money?

I am not reasoning that they deserve to remain alive, my argument is that society is dminished by killing them, which may appear to be a subtle distinction, and it is, but it is also vital in my view.
As an aside I think murderers should be allowed the means to easily end their own life if they so desire.

As I see it, the issue becomes clouded by emotions, and this and the many other debates on this site clearly illustrate that.

But if we start allowing emotions to dictate our legal processes, we step onto a very very slippery slope.

Who decides the level of grief, the injustice, the horror, and so on and so forth, in every murder case, bearing in mind that every single one is a unique set of circumstances.

That is why, in my view, laws have to be framed and enacted with emotion left outside the court, because that is the only way that true justice can be established and fulfilled.

It's by no means a perfect system, but it remains by a very long distance, the best we have to work with.
Andy, do you think there's a possibility that Sarah would still be alive if Couzens knew there was a chance he would be executed?
Dave bro, A terminally ill person in agony with absolute no future can’t get medication to end their life. I don’t see why murderers should be given that choice .

In light of ever increasing demands on budgets in the nhs etc it most certainly ought to be a consideration
It is obscene that hundreds of thousands will be wasted on this monster whilst people suffer long waits for treatment
Many get delayed too long and never get the treatment in time and the press has been awash with such stories of late
A rabid dog that attacks and kills is destroyed immediately
It is not put in a secure facility to live out its days
Treatments cost money
Imagine the extra cost his incarceration will incur because of having been a police officer too ?
What a tragic waste of a young woman’s life and an obscene waste of money on the animal that is Couzens
This was not a spur of the moment crime but sickening in its premeditation
He warrants and certainly deserves immediate death
//Part of me actually wishes there could be a vote/referendum on this,as when it was over these debates would dry up (or would they?).//
You mean like on Brexit, lol
There's a part of me that believes that those who kill in such a horrific manner should suffer similar mental and physical pain. I don't believe a death sentence does that. I've no doubt Couzens will suffer in jail...at least that's what I'd wish for him. But that's definitely my emotional response.
I highly disagree with the current 'bring back hanging' campaign on AB.
