One of the very last - if not THE last - murderers to hang in Canada was convicted of raping & killing a woman he'd met at a Scarborough (suburban Toronto) beer parlor. They had some beers and he made some kinky whoopee.

He tossed her body behind the Supertest station that used to be near the corner of Eglinton & Midland. We lived across the street from the Supertest. She was apparently laying there when I went off to school that next morning. Creeped me out when I found out about it - I was 9 I think.

They hung him in the Don Jail about 1962. Sometime that same year, my father was thrown in the Don for a few days for having eleventy-billion parking tickets. They put him to work dusting & cleaning in the gallows room. It creeped him out.

A pointless story, but true.

There is no punishment harsh enough for those parents starving their child.

My brother is currently employed in Canada. He refers to their "Justice" system as a "bad joke that apparently does not work." He has also noted that the brand of socialism practiced there doesn't work either.

One thing I think is important to note is that a lot of these states with death penalties, and especially ohio, are better places to commit murder than some states that favor a life in prison without parole alternative.

A good example is David Maust, who killed a child in the army in Germany, spent 2 years in prison, came to Illinois and killed a 15 year old boy for refusing to have sex with him in a rock quarry. His grand total time for this murder was 15 years behind bars.

He then moved to hammond, Indiana and killed three more boys in 2003, and tried to cement their bodies in his basement.

Now, if he had killed the 15 year old in Iowa, where there is a mandatory life sentance without parole for 1st degree murder or kidnapping, he'd still be in jail and no one would have to worry about him.

Now, clearly, if Maust had been executed in Illinois for the murder, we'd also be OK. The moral of the story is this:

Apparently, the state of Illinois isn't terribly concerned about keeping murderers locked up or preventing them from killing again.

Life in prison without parole is just as effective at preventing recidivism as the death penalty, and works best when mandatory. It's less prone to appeal, and basically means that human vermin are simply locked away and forgotten.

Isn't that what we really want in the first place?

Death penalty isn't worth it if there's a possibility you execute someone not worthy of it.
