The notorious letter (if there is one...) has opened up the old death penalty debate again.
Hang 'em or throw away the key?
I've always been of the opinion that if found guilty, they should live long lives and be left to rot, regardless of the cost. Especially in this horrific case where they not only committed the most barbaric crimes but then went on to torment the families involved.
The death penalty was abolished shortly before the trial. I cant help wondering what kind of life Winnie Johnson would have lived, had Brady found the noose around his neck way back in 1966.
The invisible cord that he has tugged over the years would never have existed and despite living with the horror of losing a child in the darkest of circumstances, Winnie's life would have most certainly been different. Perhaps the fact that the murderous, evil scum was still alive and witholding whatever knowledge was what really kept her going?
I do hope that Brady carries on rotting with the realisation that he has lost his last hold and when his day eventually comes, may he continue to rot in hell.
Sincere condolences to all the family. I also hope that the police continue to investigate and search for Keith. It's not just the family who want to see him given a decent burial, we all do.
The dignity, courage and hope of Winnie Johnson cannot be surpassed. This woman should be commended for her dedicated, lifelong search for Keith.
May you be at peace now, dear lady and finally be safely reunited with your darling child.
