Those who cause massive and wide reaching harm to a society and for years/whole lifetimes should be removed from society so that that society can live in a better way and feel less at threat of continuous harm. It's about best for the whole not pandering to sick and disgusting individuals who can't abide by the rules and destroy not just individuals lives but destroy the fabric of societies and have a massive negative effect on everyone!
If you didn't already know,capital punishment is final,so when you get the wrong person for any given capital crime you become the murderer.
And if it's a life for a life,the criminal is more likely to kill any witness to their crime as they've nothing to lose.
It also leaves no room for rehabilitation of the offender.
I don't believe in soft options for serious offendering ,quite the contrary,but when you post of capital punishment for what amounts to death by dangerous driving I wouldn't want to live in your world,as it's far removed from my idea of civilisation
Carol Boardman's killer is not in doubt, as it is for many, and just like others they have no value put on human life. We know this because despite the law, despite seeing various ads and news articles as we all have) about how people are being killed when motorists use mobile phones/drive distracted they still went ahead and did precisely that, they made that decision knowingly and with total disregard for life. On top of that they lied and attempted to pervert the cause of justice by covering up their crime.
The 'system' has already let them off from this disgusting aspect, precisely why has not being revealed, it's as if their is an agenda/external influence to reduce the seriousness of this matter!
These killers death should be final, it protects society from that individual ever doing it again. We have many situations were those that heinously break the rules get a slap on the wrist, we see such a this level kill or carry out acts that destroy lives, that not justs physically alters forever but also torture mentally individuals. This isn't restricted to the victim themselves it spreads like a cancer to many others, particularly the nearest and dearest.
The current system isn't working to prevent nor protect society as a whole, change is needed, these despicable human beings have no place in a society, not behind bars laughing at their 'punishment' (if indeed they get put behind bars at all!) having a lifestyle that hundreds of thousands in this country do not enjoy.
But let's carry on with the current system that currently acts as no deterrent whatsoever AND is extremely costly to give a life of riley for these types!
