Should Life mean Life

As some may know my personal belief is that capital punishment is a no go , but occasionally it does make me think.

But alongside that quandary of belief for many is " should life mean life "

This horrifying matter :

Blair Logan who murdered brother on New Year's Day jailed | Daily Mail Online

Set ablaze and burned to death as he slept... by his own brother: Solicitor's sons' bitter feud ends in horror as victim is doused in petrol – but girlfriend who saw him die in torment scrambles to safety

Surely i am not alone in thinking that 20 years for this horrendous crime against the whole family , is far too low a tariff , it is amongst the most cruel and callous crimes.

Should life mean life , at least , for such an apalling excuse for a human.

Re: Should Life mean Life

I would have like to have seen years added on for burns to girlfriend and endangering lives of parents etc. To answer your question, yes life should mean life.

I just shook my head in disbelief , twenty years ?

Such horror will taint the lives of his surviving victims for their eternities.

Re: Should Life mean Life

In this particular respect, I think the USA has it right. Guilty felons there (apart from the states where they have the death penalty) receive a sentence of something like 99 years. Therefore, even if time is knocked off for "good behaviour" (what is that anyway?) they will never get out.

Re: Should Life mean Life

Have always felt that for the most heinous murders an element of hard labour should be added to a full life term

Never understand the capital punishment advocates who want to let vile killers off with a quick jab in the arm

So, in this case where is the incentive to behave well?

Re: Should Life mean Life

I have never understood "good behaviour" anyway. Perhaps it means they have not started a riot for a week, or have eaten up all their greens! Probably something just as stupid.

Re: Should Life mean Life

"When passing a sentence of life imprisonment, the judge should make clear what the determinate sentence would have been, and then fix the specified period.
The specified period of a life sentence should range from between one-half to two-thirds of the determinate term. The time that the offender has spent in remand should be deducted from the specified period.
One-half should be the normal proportion, less time spent in custody. But in some cases, more than one-half will be appropriate.
If a judge specifies a higher proportion than one-half, he or she should state the reasons for doing so.
A ‘whole life’ minimum term sentence can be imposed for the most dangerous offenders, meaning there is no minimum period which can properly be set in that case.
A life sentence average tariff is 14years equvalent to a 28yr sentence. However, depending on the age of the offender and mitigating circumstances it can be half that.
A 30yr minimum tariff is usually specified for serious offenders usually involving multiple murders .
Following their release, life sentence prisoners remain 'on licence' for the rest of their lives. This means that they are subject to supervision by the Probation Service, and may be recalled to custody at any time if the terms of the licence are breached."
