let death penalty work, We never will understand the pain or agony of those who became the victims.Those who killed others should undergo the same treatment.

dont know wether we are lucky or not rgarding the death penalty, but wish we had it for knife crime which is a disgrace..........might put some of the scum off, no justice for the corpses in the cemetry who have no life but the man released from prison has his whole life ahead..........is that justice
