Do you agree with bringing back the death penalty?
There are times when I would willingly agree with the death penalty, and even fight to bring it back.
I say sometimes because there has been occasions when the death penalty has been used for the wrong reason.
A perfect example of this would be Ruth Ellis.
Ruth Ellis was hanged on 13th July 1955.
She was convicted of murdering her boyfriend.
A man that had abused her and she could not take it anymore.
However, there was and still is a lot of people who believe that she should not have been hanged. She should have been imprisoned with the chance of being released.
However, when it comes to terrorists then that is a totally different matter.
What do we do with them?
Imprison them, and for how long?
There has been talk of treating them like prisoners of war. I actually agree with this. They would have no special treatment.
As long as they are put away for the rest of their lives.
That way they cannot harm anyone.
We must build a special prison for them, something like Alcrataz.
Or do we go back to the days of the death penalty and hang them?
If we hang them then surely it would be a deterrent to others?
