Warning - visceral and intemperate response to the murder in Woolwich
.
I have always been totally opposed to the death sentence, on the grounds that it makes us no better than them. But I might be about to change my mind. I don't think anything we could do would make us as bad as what these creatures have done this afternoon.

I have always been of the opinion that although religion is dangerous and often evil, people should be free to "worship" their imaginary creatures in whatever way they want PROVIDED THEY DON'T FUCKING KILL ANYBODY OVER IT. I might be about to change my mind. At this moment I simply don't see how anybody can think religious beliefs can continue to be tolerated.

I have always been of the opinion that the police should not carry guns except in extremis, and should not shoot anyone unless it was the only way to stop them killing somebody. I might have changed my mind. Some things are so barbaric that any normal person is qualified to say "This person is so evil they should not be allowed to live."

I may have a more considered response by tomorrow, but in the meantime - read the title.

I agree!

I'm right with you, dorsetgirl. These aren't humans; they're sub-humans and they shouldn't be protected by the law.
If people choose to behave in an uncivilized way, they should be treated in an uncivilized way. Hang them.

It's a cliché, but I now understand the saying "hanging's too good for them".

I was disgusted to find the BBC showing one of them talking to camera, apparently recorded by someone on a bus. These people should not be given any airtime - not the name of their organisation, their aims and ideals, nothing. Just their illegal acts with no "understanding" of the so-called reasoning behind them.
