Dead men can't walk free...

The clearing of Barry George of the murder of Gill Dando demonstrates clearly why the death penalty should not be re-introduced.

I trust those who wanting to bring back hanging will reflect on today's verdict which sees Barry George walk free an innocent man after spending eight years in jail.

I will reflect on the fact that the Met can't find the murderer of a celebrity murdered in broad daylight in central London, but can slaughter Brazilian electricians if they hurdle a ticket barrier.

Were the police ALWAYS this useless?

Yes, that would have been another victim if that famous civil libertarian David Davis had his way.

It wasn't a unanimous verdict originally.

I would only allow hanging for a unanimous verdict.

And yes I would be proud to bring it back for those found guilty by unanimous verdict of muder or class a drug dealing.
