Bring Back The Death Penalty
Our family had a magnificent day catching up with both the Pepper and Dryiski families, sharing quality time together over a BBQ and a couple of beers. After unwinding and sitting down for something to eat (other than chocolate) I was horrified with what was unfolding on the evening news. A story that sent a chill down my spine and shook me to the core. A story that leaves you asking yourself over and over again ‘Why?’
Two young, innocent children were murdered by a 35-year-old male (I won’t call him their father as he doesn’t deserve the title) on a day which is about celebrating life. It is a tragic event that will forever haunt the children’ family, residents of the Watsonia street, and the general public as a whole. This is a man who has killed his kids and will now rot in jail.
How can a man kills his two innocent and defenseless children and still have the right to be treated as a ‘human being’ in a Victorian Prison? The girls have their life taken from them yet this prick will spend the next 25+ years getting three square meals a day, access to the internet, education programs and pay-television, and with good behavior day release and even parole. Where is the justice? This is plain wrong?
It is a case like this that outrages parents like me who worship our children. This man has to pay the ultimate price. He has to pay with his life. He has taken the lives of two beautiful girls and yet he gets to live. The law needs to change for specific circumstances like these. Ronald Ryan was the last man to be sentenced to death in 1967 in Australia after killing a prison officer. 47 years later the public are demanding that it is reintroduced for clear-cut cases like these, when there is no doubt the accused has committed the crime and it is an open and shut case. The punishment needs to fit the crime and and that punishment is death.
