When some is sentience to life in jail should it mean life.
I know in the UK life means 25 years and then your free
In the USA it means life and the only way out is in a wooden box
What do other members think

Don't see the need to keep someone alive in a cell for life. Waste of tax payers money.
Off with his head!

There have been incidents about people being found innocnet after 15-20 years in jail. Can you give them the prime of their life back?

Exceptions dont disprove the rule.

No you can`t give them the prime of their life back but it is better than the death penalty

I partly agree, though I still dont see any need for life imprisonment.

A reasobnable compromise would be a deferred death penalty. Keep them in prison for a reasonable period, say 5 years for appeals etc. If the verdict is not changed by that time, then enforce the death penalty.

Or maybe change the law so that at least 2-3 different direct evidences are needed for the death penalty, like: eye witness + DNA + lethal weapon. Personally I would prefer medicinal tests on convicts to death penalty. That way their life would be good for something.

Its hard to say, I always fear that people getting life and it actually being life could quite easily be wrongly accused. If theres hard proof that someone does deserve life, for either taking someones life or making their life unliveable then it should be life, full stop.

The thing thats annoying me more than anything at the moment regarding this is a guy had raped, murdered and then disposed of a young girls body, he got 20 years in jail. Then theres the guys of mega upload who have a high chance of getting 50 years in jail, wheres the right in that?
