Who’s being punished here?
Ian Huntley tries yet again to do away with himself but the powers that be rose to the occasion and brought him back to the land of the living. This is the third time the bloke has tried suicide – or is it the fourth? I have lost count. Frankly, I don’t care. He killed two innocent girls and is yet to pay for his sins. While we, the illustrious tax payers, are paying to keep him live and kicking – as well as footing the bill to keep his side-kick safe and sound in a hidden location.
This galls me.
Why are we striving so hard to keep such people in good health? Every day, we pay huge sums to keep murders, rapists and other assorted folks of similar ilk, fed, clothed and sheltered. Some of them get out in due course, only to wreck more havoc on us, while others, like Ian, try to take the easy way out. Either way, it is us who pay for their sins.
Who’s the punishment for then? Ones that harmed – or, us, the long-suffering public?
