I still think capital punsihment is unacceptable, but ...
... I confess to having a few second-thoughts on the matter when I read this story. Is it really an effective use of valuable resources to maintain these young thugs in prison? At the very least I hope sincerely that the sentence of imprisonment for 'life' each has received will mean precisely that; I hope I'm not reading in 10 or 15 years time that they have been released 'on licence'!
