And personally, I'd prefer it if my taxes weren't being used to keep scumbags, serial killers and pedophiles alive. -.- As for so called innocent victims, the ones that people round here cite are Evans and Hanratty. Hanratty was proven to be guilty years after the fact by DNA testing; Evans was considered to be guilty of his wife's murder by the Brabin inquiry. Cuz he was convicted of his daughter's murder only, he got a pardon. As for the whole "Let him have it" controvosy, intent counts in a case of a killer couple. You don't have to be the one who did the killing, but if you were there and therefore allowed it to happen, a judge can claim you had intent and are therefore also guilty. The people who were truly innocent of murder are very few compared to the guilty who got away scot free.
