Tell Me Again How The Death Penalty Was 'Unjust'...

Kelly Pearce, 36, of North Avenue, Canvey, was taken to the Royal London Hospital with a serious neck injury and died soon after 7.30pm.
Detectives from Essex Police said they urgently need to speak to Anthony Ayres, 48, in connection with the investigation. He is described as around 5ft and of average build.
Just another domestic that couldn't be foreseen?
The Press Association understands Ayres was jailed for life at the Old Bailey in 1994 after being found guilty of killing his then partner Dawn Wisdom.
Secretary Ms Wisdom, 30, was strangled to death by Ayres, then aged 27, at her East London flat in September 1993 after she tried to end their relationship.
Hmmm....
Nick Alston, police and crime commissioner for Essex, said he was "appalled and deeply saddened" by the latest killing.
He added: "This tragedy must make us question and challenge the continuing prevalence of violence against women and girls in our society. Such horror and loss of life is intolerable.
"There are also profound questions for the entire criminal justice system about sentencing and the regulatory framework surrounding the management of dangerous offenders in our communities.
"I believe these questions must be urgently addressed at the national, as well as the local, level."
He said the case underlines the need for organisations like the police, probation service and NHS to share information about vulnerable people.
'Vulnerable people'?
Ms Pearce's family issued a statement saying they had lost a "loving mother and daughter who was big hearted and full of life".
They added: "Kelly was blessed with a loud and bubbly personality and she was often heard before she was seen.
"Although Kelly faced struggles in her tragically short life, we will choose to remember her the way that she was at her best - full of life and never afraid to show affection for the people that she loved."
Ah. I can read between those lines.

Of course, 'scutters' tend to find 'scutters'. Isn't dat the sad truth? How do we cure our ills in a lost society? Only through the judicious application of napalm and neutron bombs- a just anodyne to all societies problems. Isn't that the sad truth.

"He is described as around 5ft"

Paradoxically easy to spot and hard to spot.

"Ayres was jailed for life"
Well, I'd try calling the HMP where he's incarcerated.

No real loss then. First of all a women who knew he was a killer and then was killed and he will go behind for the rest of his life now. Maybe the muslim and justice system views are the same. Two women lives are worth him. We should be happy that he didn't take sensible people with him. But we must also remember the sad part, he didn't take any of these do gooders who let him out to kill again either.

The solution is simple. Privatise the prison service. Invite tenders from Iran and other such enlightened nations.

And I can't see a way around it, no matter what safeguards society demands in place.

Heh!

"But we must also remember the sad part, he didn't take any of these do gooders who let him out to kill again either."

They won't even suffer direct criticism, will they?

You have to wonder why these women pick monsters like this to have relationships with. I dunno about you but having been freed from a life sentance for murdering a previous partner might just raise a red flag? Bueller? Bueller?

So this woman died for no other reason than she was extraordinarily dumb. I guess that's Darwin in action.

A criminal justice system which releases "lifers" back to repeat their crimes is unfit.
Platitudes just don't cover this totally forseeable outcome. We are locking up people for thought-crimes while violent physical offenders are treated leniently.
