I’ll hang killers for free

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Crime and violence in Jamaica is getting from bad to worse. The states of emergency seem to require more focus and enforcement.

The Government needs to bring back hanging or introduce other forms of capital punishment. These dog-hearted murderers need harsh and severe penalties. Sending them to prison is like giving them a free lunch.

If it is that there is a shortage of hangmen, I am willing and able to serve at no cost to the State. In fact, I am willing to absorb the cost of all rope needed to carry out a sustained period of hanging.

Those who are opposed to capital punishment must try to explain their compassion to those who suffer at the hands of these beasts.

Time is not on our side. We need to act now!
