Capital Punishment

When a state
Kills a convicted murderer
The state
Becomes like the killer
Murdering the defenseless
In the toxic word
Of justice

Comment a brutal killer like this must be kept secure in a jail as long as he live...but we as idividual or the state have no right
to kill in revenge or for economically reason

Comment Jan Oscar Hansen, Sir, I too believe, that no body has any right to kill another, not even a state. But how do you reconcile to a situation when a man stalks a woman for two months and make entry in her flat to rape and on being thawrted, the rascal slashes her throat, holds her by her hair and stabs her in the body and face? So, the law enforcing agencies will just catch him and feed him for fourteen years in a reformation centre and release him at the peak period of his life and just say Amen! Is that what you suggest?
