Should Ian Brady Be Allowed To Die

Felicity A Morse | Posted 24.10.2012 | UK
Felicity A Morse

Arguments to 'bring back the death penalty' and 'not give Brady what he wants' are flawed by their motivation. Hanging a noose round Brady's neck or shoving a tube into Brady's stomach just because we're angry isn't good enough. Emotion should never be given a place in law.
