    If we have Death Penaty, l dont think we were gonna hear about the murders everyday on the newspapers in SA.People do terrible things to one another and that is unacceptable.

    It was a hit. Robbers seldom use this tactic as it is cruel and anusual. You normally do something like that if you want to see the person suffer. Or perhaps our criminals are getting more sadistic.

    For all the death penalty proponents out there - here is a crime where the punishment WILL suit the crime.
