Re: Risky strategy?
I upvoted you because the miscreants certainly deserve it, but...
The main trouble with the death penalty is it is very hard to appeal, and we (all of our nations) have a long history of executing innocent people.
Now if the miscreant had admitted it proudly in court it and there was damning proof then that would be tempting, but there's another argument. Life imprisonment without chance of release is a harsher punishment than a death sentence.
