UN Investigator – Death Penalty Is Torture! Really?

As the years go by I sometimes think the world is getting crazier by the minute. There are so many loonies loose in society today who all want to be taken seriously that it makes me wonder which part of the woodwork they spring from. Now we have a UN investigator called Juan Mendez who considers the death sentence for criminals amounts to torture because it inflicts physical and mental pain on those about to die. My answer to that is: So what!

A Grieving Family

A Grieving Family

We have over the last thirty years or so entered a time where more thought is given to the murderers, torturers and rapists than to the victims. Many governments are looking to the Human Rights Act which gives everyone a ‘right to life’, even sadists and mass murderers. If Hitler and his SS buddies were alive today they would have received a paltry prison sentence and been back out on the streets. The pendulum has swung so far the other way that nobody gives a hoot for the loss of life, the pain and suffering of the victims of crime caused by mindless acts of violence.

In many people’s minds we cannot possibly condemn a vicious rapist, mass murderer or torturer to death because that is cruel punishment. Instead they prefer to house them in a comfortable prison at the tax payers expense for the rest of their miserable lives. In very many countries the prison system is overloaded and costs the tax payer billions a year just to keep them off the streets and yet they would never cause any more heartache and pain if they received a just sentence – i.e. the death penalty. “An eye for an eye” as the good book tells us.

But this is something the human rights idiots have been able to latch on to and gain some success for some ungodly reason. But what makes me angry is the total lack of sympathy for the victims of vicious crime and grieving parents. The justice systems in most western countries seems so intent on making sure the perpetrator has his ‘human rights’ respected that those of the victims are mostly brushed aside.

The Face Of A Callous Killer

I wrote some time ago about an Iraqi illegal immigrant who came to Britain and entered a life of crime stretching over a number of years and had served several terms in prison. One day he struck a 12 year-old girl with his car and when he stopped she was alive, but trapped under the wheels of his car. Instead of helping her he dragged her along the road for several yards as he drove off and left her to die in the road. He was caught and appeared before the judge who gave him a four-month prison sentence. He had previously been sentenced to deportation for earlier offences, but this is where the Human Rights Act enters the story. Because he had married an English girl after one of his prison sentences and had two children with her, he could no longer be deported because he claimed ‘the right to family life’ under Article Eight of the act. It was bad enough that he got only a four-month prison sentence for killing the child while banned from driving for earlier offences, but then the law could not even deport him for his string of criminal activities when he was illegal in the first place. Such is the state of the law today.

And now we have Senor Mendez decrying the death penalty because is is too cruel on the criminals. He is quoted as saying, “States (i.e. American states) need to re-examine their procedures under international law because the ability of states to impose and carry out the death penalty is diminishing as these practices are increasingly viewed to constitute torture.” He also said, “there was no such thing as a pain-free form of execution, which makes it difficult to reject the idea that it is a form of torture”.

He seems to forget that we all have to face up to the fact that not everyone is the same, and there are in society many people with ‘sick’ minds who like the prospect of inflicting pain and suffering on people, and before any of the Human Rights lobby want to make a case of the ‘sick’ word, let me explain that I mean perverted, malicious and evil.

Personally, I don’t give a rat’s backside if some sadist or mass murderer feels a little ‘uncomfortable’ as he receives a lethal injection or gets the noose or firing squad, to hell with his feelings and pain, he brought it on himself and must pay a just penalty. If it hurts it sure as hell won’t last as long as his victims pain, and that of the grieving family!

Too Few Countries Still Have The Death Penalty

Really, what would this idiot Mendez have the courts do, wrap them in cotton wool, slap them on the wrist and send them to a holiday camp? Oh sorry, they do that already, and call them prisons. To deter the vicious cycle of violence we find ourselves in, due to the weakness of many countries justice systems, we need now more than ever the deterrent of the death penalty. In the old days when the death sentence was in full use, without the condemned spending years on Death Row I might add,  we had one hundredth of the murders and vicious killings we do now. There is a lesson there!
