  1. It is quite obvious that there are some elements in the society who just don’t
    give a damn; they have no respect to common decency, for life and far less
    for Law and order. So what do you do when the Legal system is chocked full
    with Cases, some solved, some unsolved and others never to be solved. It is
    fast becoming a crime ridden, Godless and Lawless typical of Latin American
    Banana Republic; as I have always said – if you kill, you hang – but who has the
    balls to implement what is on the books, and if implemented, it has been the Law
    all along. If ‘Lodovik Kennedy’ had not written about ‘Christy’s’ doings at that God
    forbidden No 10 Rillington Place, Kensington, London U.K. exposing the mistakes
    of shoddy Policing, at a time not too soon after the second world war, then hanging
    for willful murder would still be in place – Evans was wrongly hanged because Chisty
    framed him for the death of many in that rooming house. I went checking at that dead
    end London Street, passing near 10 Rillington Place, I just froze, all the hair on my
    arms stood up. It was because of this mistake they stopped hanging in Britain, soon
    after Western Europe and some States in the U.S. also stopped hanging. Pressure
    was put on us and other like minded nations. So now you see, criminals are not afraid
    of prison (most of them been in there) but you can whip, can’t you; pull out the lolo-beff.
