When you spare murderers

News.com.au - THE prime suspect in yesterday's callous killing of a Frankston mother was sentenced to death in 1968 for the stabbing murder of a 17-year-old girl. Robinson's death sentence for murdering the teenager was commuted in 1969, and he was released on parole in 1983. In 1991 he pleaded guilty to 14 charges of handling over $100,000 worth of stolen goods. He received a two-year sentence with a minimum of 18 months.

Actor Gil Tucker - who played a policeman in the popular TV drama Cop Shop - gave evidence on Robinson's behalf, saying Robinson's life had been ''a great tragedy'' and that he had made a "made a great fist of having a go at it" after being released for the 1968 murder. Detectives are continuing to hunt for Robinson who they describe as "armed and dangerous" more than 30 hours after he blasted the mother of two to death with a shotgun yesterday.
Yeah, a great tragedy, look at the posies, kumbaya, hold hands. Because he was spared all those years ago, combined with our useless gun control laws, this woman is dead, two children are orphaned, someone has lost their daughter, their mother, their friend and it could have been prevented. Who knows who else this scumbag is going to kill next before he is caught. And what happens when they catch him, oh yeah, he'll still live because we don't have the stomach to kill evil scumbags like this. Hopefully he'll be sentenced to life never to be released but don't put your house on it. I wouldn't be surprised if some criminal coddling moron will be whining to give him another chance. I wouldn't be surprised if the courts only find him guilty of manslaughter or insanity or use some other useless excuse to minimise the time he'll spend in jail. Remember this folks, remember it well, for every scumbag deserving of the chair or the needle that we let live.
Wall Street Journal - Most commentators who oppose capital punishment assert that an execution has no deterrent effect on future crimes. Recent evidence, however, suggests that the death penalty, when carried out, has an enormous deterrent effect on the number of murders. More precisely, our recent research shows that each execution carried out is correlated with about 74 fewer murders the following year.
Someone, maybe even you, will pay the price.
