Should a life sentence mean life in prison (UK)?

Asked by: SpookIV
  • Life should mean life

    If a life is taken by another. Then the suspect should then serve a life imprisonment themselves. Not only have that taken a life but they have taken a son/daughter, a friend, a neice/nephew, a father/mother etc... The suspect will not be the only person to suffer a life sentence, but the family also.

  • Justice of a Democratic Government

    Everyone in all parts of the world have heard the proverb, " Treat others the way you want to be treated. " So, if you murder someone, you should expect to be given a direct execution sentence, and the life sentence is just an indirect execution sentence. If you say that they aren't given a chance for rehab, think about it, would you want them being free in the world if one of your family member was murdered?

  • Taking a life

    If people are willing to take away someone else's life they should be prepared to give up their life as well, people shouldn't be able to serve 10 years for taking someone's life then after prison go back to their own personal life. People don't come back from the dead after 10 years to carry on their life so why should murders be able to do that? There is no justic for the victims family knowing that the person who killed their loved one will be out of prison usually under a new identity and be able to carry on like normal and that nothing happened.

  • Lack of deterrence

    If punishment was not as harsh as it is currently, there would be nothing to discourage criminals from acting in the first place. If the criminal just needed to make it through rehab, repeat crimes would be more common.

    Though this is entirely ignoring the factor of injustice, generally and to any victims.

  • Should all life sentences mean that a criminal dies in prison?

    Is it ever safe to let a criminal out early on parole? Many people think that serious offenders should never be let out - that they should die in prison. Isn't this wrong? What about the rehabilitation programs put in place by the government?

    Share your opinion above -

    Thanks.

  • Why should they be left to die in prison if they have generally changed

    Because once the sentence given is done, They remain on licence, subject to recall. ‘Life’ is a life sentence; it’s just not necessarily all spent in prison
    occasionally even the worst murderers reform. What kind of society offers no hope and forgiveness, after an appropriately severe punishment, to people who have genuinely changed?
    What kind of signal does that send to our children?
    This is less a matter of human rights than a matter of simple humanity.
