    Death Row is ineffectual in the US where they may wait for thirty years to get the chemicals needed for lethal injection, which is crueler than hanging anyway. You may suffer unspeakable pain for half an hour waiting for the chemicals to work. Death Row is slow;whereas, hangings are fast. Ropes are re-use-able also. They need to bring back public hangings at Tyburn and Newgate, and whippings for school bullies and violent youths.

    How can you add a 'death row to a justice system. You could include capital punishment! And, if you have capital punishment, maybe you need a 'death row' to hold those awaiting death. Actually the UK can't introduce capital punishment for as long as it is a member of the EU. Hopefully not for much longer, but I can't see it going back to those lengths. We are more civilised now.

    Yes, as commanded by Yahweh. Even Juses demanded that.

    Luke 11:28 But he said, Yea, rather blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

    No, we have our problems with crime but that would be too extreme.

    No. It isn't a deterrent and just wastes a lot of time and money on endless appeals, if the US system is anything to go by.

    Capital punishment in the United Kingdom was used from ancient times until the second half of the 20th century. The last executions in the United Kingdom were by hanging, and took place in 1964, prior to capital punishment being suspended for murder in 1965 and finally abolished in 1969 (1973 in Northern Ireland). Although unused, the death penalty remained a legally defined punishment for certain offences such as treason until it was completely abolished in 1998. In 2004 the 13th Protocol to the European Convention on Human Rights became binding on the United Kingdom, prohibiting the restoration of the death penalty for as long as the UK is a party to the Convention.

      Thanks for that - from wherever it came, Anon. However, the more ultra right-wing the UK gets, the easier it may be to bring it back.
