BBC News Now I know by today's standards that "a minimum of 22 years in prison" is a long sentence, most murderers only getting around a minimum of 16 but surely in this case 22 is simply not enough. Take a moment to envision the crime he committed, he held his 16 month daughter (who by the way, already had broken limbs from previous beatings that he had given her) over his knee and exerted so much pressure that he snapped her spine! An injury that she took hours to die from. I actually feel nauseous just thinking about. Since committing the crime he has shown no remorse, nil, zilch, zero. Now a moment to consider the punishment. A roof over his head, 3 squares a day, central heating, warm showers, TV, DVD's, library, free phone calls etc for the next 22 years, all he has to do is hope the screws keep him in solitary to stop him being given the beating that he so richly deserves. Now a moment to consider us the tax payer. It costs Â£77 a night to keep a male prisoner in a medium security prison, I can't find figures on how much it costs to keep in solitary confinement in a high security prison but working on those figures: Â£77 x 365.25 = Â£28124.25 Â£28124.25 x 22 = Â£618733.50. Add on costs of psychiatrists, medical care, the rise in inflation and on release the costs of the probation service giving him a new identity and protection. It's going to cost the tax payer in a region of a cool million to carry out the sentence handed down to this animal. This is the case of a banged to rights child killer who has shown no remorse, surely the only just punishment is Capital Punishment.
