Why should we have mercy on killers?
I REFER to the story headlined "Govt 'committed' to keeping the death penalty" (Express, August 9).
It is inconceivable, even ludicrous, for an organisation, such as the Inter American Commission on Human Rights, to suggest or dictate that Trinidad and Tobago abolish capital punishment.
The people that run this organisation should live in Trinidad and Tobago for at least three years to face the robbers, rapists or murderers. Capital punishment is the law of this republic.
The criminals will never abolish killing, raping, or stealing. They show no mercy for their victims, so giving a life sentence (for murder) is not enough. They must pay for murder with their lives.
To the politicians, please stop playing games. A strong decisive message must be sent to curb this spiral and take back our communities from the criminal elements.
