Hi Guys

I think this is the correct forum but please feel free to move it if not

We in the UK have a child killer in prison, he is pretty notorious and has asked for the right to die.

Firstly some background


The Moors murders were carried out by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley between July 1963 and October 1965, in and around what is now Greater Manchester, England. The victims were five children aged between 10 and 17—Pauline Reade, John Kilbride, Keith Bennett, Lesley Ann Downey and Edward Evans—at least four of whom were sexually assaulted. The murders are so named because two of the victims were discovered in graves dug on Saddleworth Moor; a third grave was discovered on the moor in 1987, more than 20 years after Brady and Hindley's trial in 1966. The body of a fourth victim, Keith Bennett, is also suspected to be buried there, but despite repeated searches it remains undiscovered.

No doubt had we still had the death penalty both Brady and Hindley would have been hung, and rightly so IMHO.

In 1999 Brady started a hunger strike and has been force fed by a tube ever since

Ironically he suffered a seizure and couldn't attend court via video link, so the judge ruled that he was not well enough to go ahead with the hearing.


Today the judge who had been due to hear his application ruled that Brady was not well enough to go ahead with the hearing following a seizure and fall at Ashworth earlier this week.

Quite the conundrum isn't it.

48 years ago people were baying for his blood, today what should we do ?

Let him starve to death and give him his wish, and the wish of the public nearly 1/2 a century ago ?
Or force him to live and suffer ?

Interesting dilemma

What would you choose ?

I'm still undecided but thought it a good topic to debate

Hi cody

Do a deal with the bastard,
let him die when he reveals where Kieth is.

Kieth's mother recently died still never having the chance to give him a send off.

Also consider that its cost the tax payer over 8 million to house that vile evil man.

Incarcerated for some 47 years - a lot longer than the vast majority of murderers would ever imagine serving.

So I'm actually easy either way.

What puzzles me is why Brady's doing this.

I mean, he's 75....why the urgent need to starve himself to death?

It's not like he's gonna live another 30 years.

Keep him alive. His victims didn't have a choice so why should he. It seems he is at a stage where he can no longer live with what he did and the consequences. That is exactly how he SHOULD feel and for as long as possible. I hope he lives to 110 years old and in agony...mentally and physically.

He should of been allowed to die years ago, we spend more money on keeping a single prisoner alive than we do on poor law abiding families.

Justice in the UK is a joke.

Hya

Brady has been on hunger strike for 15 yrs.

Because he is classed as criminally insane
the law decrees that he be force fed.

Thanks for clarifying.


Still, at 75, why would he bother trying to shorten what little life he's got left?

They could pay me what it costs to house a single child murderer for life one time and I'd gladly put a bullet in every one of em that is convicted. Hell I'll even supply my own weapon and ammo. Child murderers make me sick to my stomach. They're effing children FFS! I also think convicted child molesters should be caged with an angry gorilla who's been doped with Viagra. Let them find out what it's like to be used and abused by something 10x your size and strength.

Honestly. I don't see what good it will do to keep him alive. Regardless of his crimes. Let the man die.

Keep him alive and in Ashworth Prison Hospital. It is a living hell for him to be there and rightly so after what he did to those children. I hope he is kept alive in the place he hates for as long as possible. Hopefully in desperation he will finally reveal the location of Keith and possibly others that he murdered?

Alan Bennett, Keith's brother, and his partner Carol Ann Lee run a website and are still actively trying to find Keith buried on the Moors.

UK should bring back the death penalty.

But keep Brady alive. Let him crawl his way to the grave at the end of a feeding tube.

I dunno

To grant him his last wish goes against everything I believe, let him suffer; hell make him suffer.

But not with my taxes

But put him in a room with a parent on the other hand for 10 minutes the outcome would be, well you figure it out.

Like I said quite the conundrum

Put him in a room with me for 5 mins and they'd have to scrape what was left of him off the sole of my boots.

Yeah, but then beating up a 75 year old that's been on hunger strike for years isn't exactly heroic is it ?

And is 5 minutes enough ? Surely he should feel the pain he dished out.

Like I said

a difficult one

It probably wouldn't take 5 mins. I'd prefer if he were younger so he could at least put up a decent fight. Age wouldn't excuse him for what he did to those kids though. I would like to think I would make someone like him suffer longer but I'd probably end up killing them within the first few hits. People who do bad things to kid's make me very angry. I have 2 young sons and if anyone did anything to them it would be me in prison and them in a hole in the dirt. I already know if something happened to my kids I wouldn't be able to control my rage, I have a hard enough time as it is when someone makes fun of them for being disabled.

I told my wife she should be glad we had boys. If we had a daughter her first boyfriend would be meeting me at the business end of my shotgun. Doubt he'd still wanna date her after I answered the door with a 12ga in his face.

I feel the same

But I suppose it's a right of passage

She's gonna get her heart broken, all I can do is be there for her. I just hope I know what to do and what to say, inside I'll be
. But she's gonna need a strong dad that gives good advice and knows how to give her love.

So if you know one be sure to u2u me

I'm not real good with the mushy emotions. I'm more of one of those hard asses that eats their tears instead of letting them flow. Guess that's what happens when the older generation of men in the family are active duty or retired military men. Spending all my youth with them made me an abrasive individual. I'd probably just tell her he's not worth the tears and she's better off hurting a little now than a lot later.
