The man was a paedophile and whilst, obviously, the abuse of children is something that cannot be condoned, I think this was wrong.
Yes, I accept the general idea that a lot of criminals don't get what is perceived as a 'just' punishment. However, whether the man got the
sentence that other people think he deserved wasn't actually the paedophiles fault. Yes, he committed the crime(s) but he was sentenced within
parameters that someone else set.
Also, the man was, to all intents and purposes, tried and given a death sentence outside of the law with no appeal. Half of the content on this site
is based on outcries when governments and big business operate outside of what we perceive to be the law. There's current threads about how the army
or the government are going to turn on us and place us in death camps &c.
However, this is what someone has done to this man. Someone has basically decided that he needed to die and was killed, all outside of the law in a
country where we don't have a death penalty anyway for any crime.
Despite the fact I find paedophilia abhorrent, I can't see how anyone on this site could actually condone this man's murder.
