Re: Capital Punishment
But if he was wrongfully killed, thats 50 cents you've valued their life.
We had a almost a terrible miss justice, a few men - were lucky to get out of the death penalty for murdering apparently their partners. A man called Eric Edgar Cooke, had murdered them, 8 in total and 14 attempts before getting caught. He did these murders with a rifle, raped multiple women, he told his lawyers not to appeal as he deserved him sentence. To be fair we still had hanging than, 10 minutes before the hanging. Cooke swore on the Bible that he had killed Jillian Brewer and Rosemary Anderson, claims which had been previously rejected as others had already been convicted of those murders. Now if these men were unlucky enough to get death penalty, they wouldn't free men today. They would be dead men.

Looks like when I quote on a phone it posts in the original thread -_-
This is Darryl Beamish, Estelle Blackburn and John Button at the Supreme Court following Beamish's exoneration on 1 April 2005 (44 years after his conviction). Button was exonerated on 25 February 2002, 39 years after his conviction.
