  1. 100k a year, so the Beeb reckoned yesterday. Much simpler, and cheaper, to tape his balls to the mains.
  2. Can we please have the death penalty back now?

  3. Should it later transpire that somebody has been wrongly convicted, they can be released. They could not be bought back to life.

  4. The truly frightening aspect of this trial is that two jury members believe that strangling a woman a foot shorter than you and inflicting 43 separate injuries on her was accidental and didn't constitute murder.

  6. It's often difficult to argue against topping some people after what they have done to their victims but a society is judged by how it treats it's prisoners. I'm against the death penalty but there are many instances where I think the law has made mistakes by being too lenient.

  11. Which is why it should/could be used for criminals that are particularly expensive to keep from the public and for those that are dead cert for guilt.

    Failing that can we use them for experiments?
