No to capital punishment.  We think killing is a crime - so if we kill someone who has committed a crime, we are committing a crime too and going against our own principles.  And - although of course not in this case as the evidence was there to see - there have been miscarriages of justice.  Too late to rectify when they are dead.  And not a deterrent anyway. It is appalling what happens in the US with regard to the death penalty.

And as long as the law allows appeals, they have a right to bring one.  Perhaps the law needs looking at again, although, again, where there have been miscarriages of justice it is right to allow people to appeal.  If anyone here had been wrongly accused and jailed, would you not wan the right to bring an appeal?  It seems to me the law is a bit of a blunt instrument and it could be difficult to allow an appeal in some circumstances and not in others.  But the lawyers on here will know far better than me.
