I had made the point that there are times where people know that a certain action warrants the death penalty. And this man has helped to prove this point:
Police want to see him die in prison but under the country’s law the maximum sentence – even for double murder – is 15 years. That can be reduced to ten for good behaviour.
One letter read: “You must have known when he went on holiday to Thailand that he was messing around with children. Your sick paedophile husband should kill himself.”
Now, on the face of it you could say that the police are arguing for a life sentence. However, there’s no mercy in these words– they want him to die, they just want to torture him first for all that he did to his kids:
Detective Inspector Polzer said: “We want to see this man die in prison. It will take a lot longer than ten years for his victims to recover from what he put them through.
It’s not mercy they’re wanting to show. They want him to hurt, to enact revenge, to drag him through a bit of what he did to his kids. They truly believe that he deserves death for his actions, and yet they want him to live in the agony he showed to his kids.
