Killers should be made to pay the ultimate price
BACK in 1965, Parliament passed a Bill that has since given comfort to murderers over the years, because of a murderess.
Her name was Ruth Ellis. She was hanged in 1955, found guilty of murder, in a rage of jealousy, firing four bullets into her cheating boyfriend, David Blakely, three of the shots while he lay on the road.
After she was hanged, the call for the abolition of the death penalty by do-gooders gathered pace and was finally achieved in 1965. In our prisons today are many cold, evil-minded killers, waking every morning, warm, well-fed and alive, while their victims lie rotting in cold graves.
I find it nauseating that this country can send decent young lads and lasses to go and fight in foreign countries, to kill Johnny Foreigner, and yet balk at putting to death evil killers of children, police and old people unable to defend themselves.
It's argued that the death penalty is not a deterrent but in my Bible it's "an eye for an eye" and any adult who commits murder, especially on a young child, should themselves pay the ultimate price.
