You kill someone pre meditated as I would receive if anyone who murdered a loved one of mine should receive life minimum of 30years, Child police officer murders, Terrorist acts gang related ( where the people are making out it matters there gang culture as they want all the attention ), Multiple 2 or more killers, Car killers whilst drunk, And anyone who shows no respect for another life should receive 40 years minimum, Life is so precious it’s all we have, Money material things do not matter. . . . . . . Frankly people need to voice for tougher sentencing
There is never any guarantee that an offender is not going to offend again. The overriding concern should be the complete safety of the general public, Not the offender. If sentences were more meaningful and prisons made more unpleasant places to serve out the sentence, Some, Not all, Potential offenders would think twice before committing awful crimes
Life should mean for the rest of their life, Otherwise give a set number of years to remain in prison, And instead of reducing the length of the service if they behave themselves, Just add years if they misbehave. Ie. A sentence of ten years if they are model prisoners and fifteen if they misbehave. This is common sense.
If you waste a life, yours deserves to be wasted in return. As John Farnham wisely said; "We're all someone's daughter, we're all someone's son". Agreed, people can change, but that does not excuse them from a crime they have already committed. Do not say we are a society without mercy before considering that we are a society with justice, and with justice will come mercy where mercy is appropriate.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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 -
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.
