Well that's saved the tax payer a few hundred quid a week!!

If only we could persuade Ian Huntley to take the same path, we would save enough cash to afford a weekend knees up in Ibiza for the UM crew!!

Yeah but you've gotta feel for the victim's families they wanted him to be punished an have to live with his crimes, prison was obviously harder than death an he took the easy way. This shouldn't have happened, he shouldve suffered disgust.gif

I disagree.

Kill them all!  Let God sort 'em out.  There is no punishment greater
than death.

Why let them enjoy their lives with sex and drugs and rock and roll in
prison when we have to pay for their lousy existence?

I say the most a tax payer should have to pay is for the price of


a rope!

A conviction that, like every other mass murderer in the world, would save the tax payer thousands of dollars a year if these people were just regarded as rabbid dogs, as they should be ph34r.gif

I wouldve normally agreed but i stopped thinking like that this afternoon. thumbsup.gif

One of the relatives was on the T.V. and was really upset that he was able to take the easy way out, changed my perspective, obviously he was suffering worse than any other punishment he could be given. Kinda suits then eh?

To be honest, no not really...

I think people in prison aren't contributing anything to society...all they're doing is costing the tax payer, costing their victims, money for their upkeep. There's no point sending someone to prison unless it's for the purpose of rehabilitating them, and for some crimes (or in this guy's case, as he'd probably have died in prison anyway before his sentance was up) that isn't possible...

At the end of the day, I just don't believe in human rights for people who commit certain crimes. I think there are certain bounderies that, in order to be considered a member of society, and be entitled to the privillages of a member of that society, there are certain lines you don't cross...a person who deliberate kills another human being in cold blood is, in my opinion, not qualified to be considered a human being, and shouldn't be treated as one.

The basic arguement is that when I say they should be treated the same way as a rabid dog, I mean it literally tongue.gif Told you I was right wing in the crime and punishment area, socialist or not.

Well what do you propose the good Doctor was contributing to society from his prison ward that was worth the upkeep his victims were having to pay for him? huh.gif

Upon thinking about things I agree with you mate.

The families of his many victims wanted answers. They wanted to know why this man commited these evil crimes. Now I'm not saying he would have given answers, but that crumb of hope has now gone for the relatives.

It may be less of a burden on the tax payer in theory, abou 0.0001p per year each, but Shipman has got out of this on his own terms, and that surely should not have been allowed to happen.

Ok seraphina

The punishment was about not only shipman but the victims. They wanted him to suffer now he won't surely an insignifcant amount of tax to yourself is worth piece of mind for these families, whom as a result of his death with never get any closure on the matter now.
