Rights and wrongs
1:45pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in Letters
I COULD not agree more with Charles Rushton’s letter of August 22 expressing his disgust at the sentences meted out to the killers of Keith Wright.
Has he read the reports about the triple-murderer, Arthur Hutchinson, who is challenging his life sentence, on the pretext that it went against his “human rights”? What is wrong with the world today, when people who have committed unforgivable crimes dare to claim human rights? People nowadays do exactly as they please, knowing that some solicitor, with nothing on his mind but a fat fee, will stand up and challenge any punishment given. I believe that anyone who cold-bloodedly deprives someone else of life should face life behind bars, and that should mean life – with no chance of ever being free again.
