55 years at our expense??

Recommended Posts


took me several minutes to catch up

Quote from Sky NEWS: 

"as Mr Justice Baker jailed Hashem Abedi for life on each of the 22 counts of murder he was convicted of over the 2017 attack".

on this side of the pond "life" minimum is 7 years. what's 7X22

it also runs in the back of my pea brain the expense of the death penalty is equal to the cost of 20 years in prison. appeal after appeal all on the tax payer.

don't hold me to those numbers - that's just what I somehow remember

I have no doubt that you are totally wrong about that.

the issue of "consecutive" vs "concurrent" plays a role.  I have noticed when a single driver kills an entire family the sentence is often concurrent

To quick. I'd rather waterboard the c@nt with pig's urine every day for the rest of his life. Put the W@nker on a diet of cheap bologne made from pig's intestines.

Hmm   How do you reconcile this view with your comments 're capital punishment in a previous thread.   Or do you disapprove of capital punishment because you think daily torture would be more appropriate ?

It seems as if in this post you assume the accused is guilty, whereas in your postings on the death penalty you assume a high proportion of innocence.  You really cannot have it both ways - as the harlot said to the bishop.
