Default Emirati child rapist/murderer sentenced to death

Apparently he will be killed by firing squad. First though he has to serve a sentence for six months for consuming alcohol the night before.

Makes you wonder why they don't save themselves the money and get it over with. I suspect they don't have solitary over here for sex offenders so maybe they hope the other prisoners will saev the firing squad the trouble.

i didn't even realise they still had the death penalty here, thought it was only sharjah...

not sure what i think on this...i'm not a believer in capital punishment but i guess if it was my kid, then it would be a different matter...

They should kill him now or there will be a chance he'll have his sentance commuted...Emiratis tend to get their death penalties converted to life imprisonment....although in this case it's unlikely.

Then again who knows, there's no real rule of law or precendent here.

Absolutely MM - put this filth down. The death penalty is a tough one but in some cases I am afraid it's clear cut for me. If it was my kid I would want this guy in a room - just me and him. My justice for my child. Let's hope they don't delay to give him time to slip through.

A few days ago another rapist/murderer was sentenced to death after having been pardoned years ago for another rape.

They won't let another one get away.

Didn't he just go through a 6-week trial ?

Anyway, he should be jailed not murdered.

indeed, he has no right to kill, and nobody else should. Life imprisonment is much worse than death anyway.

Death sentence is nothing. It's meaningless.

Once you are dead you don't have to live with any guilt. Once you are dead you cannot care about anything. Once you are dead you aren't even actually dead....you aren't anything....YOU cease to exist.

That isn't punishment - that is just ending all things for that person. How can you be dead and say to yourself....'gee this sucks...I wish I hadn't done that!'.

It brings no satisfaction to the victims family - how can it? I would be more satisfied if:
- If I could deal to him myself
- if he was locked up forever and fed bare essentials and had absolutely no pleasures in life whatsoever, no visitors, sh.ite food, no media access, a really uncomfortable bed - cold and damp until the day he died.

Regardless of your opinion on whether the death penalty should be allowed as punishment or not, we should think about how punishing it really is...

It's nothing.

I agree with you. I am absolutely opposed to capital punishment, no matter the circumstances. No one has the right to take another life.

I have a good friend in the UK who spent many years working in the prison service. He has major doubts regarding rehabilitation, although the liberal in me is still optimistic. I do however think that prison should be less luxurious than it is for many. No TV, improving books only, basic foods etc.

Agree 100%. Killing, maiming or torturing in the name of justice is not the answer and makes us as a species less developed...

the thing is, *apparently* this particular chap is completely sane and doesn't feel any guilt for what he's done. If he doesn't think what he did was wrong, then no number of years is going to change his mind

The problem is, some criminals realise right from wrong and so jail is used as a catalyst to rehabilitation... for others, right and wrong is blurred - they are psychopaths - and so jail is used to just keep them the heck away from society. Death does the same. To call it punishment is wrong... it's a radical form of protection for the public.
