Capital punishment will not help. Build a law abiding society and lead by example.

Agreed.

Capital punishment did not reduce violence in the US.

The law should be allow free hand to take it cause and that is the best politicians can do to improve the situation.

Of course it does, take Singapore as an example. Don't compare us with the US because percentage-wise they are definitely much lower than us.

Lobo,

In Singapore, the law is allowed a full free hand and so capital punishment is just an extra.

A minister was about to be arrested by the Police for taking bribes. He ran to Lee Kean Yew, the father and the first PM.

The minister was told by LKY, 'Young man, you have two choices: commit suicide or go to jail.

The minister committed suicide next day. LKY has warned his cabinet and also got a pay rise of 100% to all to stay away from wrong doing.

Ah, that is why it is doing well, my friend.

He must have played out some client. Most lawyers do this through greed for money. Otherwise, no reason for such drastic action.

Lawyer hacked to death Athurugiriya, doctor assaulted and hospitalised Anuradhapura, other reports of tourist been killed not so long ago down South and girl friend raped, there seems to be a severe breakdown in the law and order situation.
Sri Lanka don't worry about what others are saying about such matters, ask yourself the question is it safe for me.You will get the right answer.

One and only way " death penalty "

death penalty is not the way. People won't stop committing crimes because the penalty is severe. A penalty of life in prison or 20 years in prison is worse for someone who committed a crime as it is a lifetime of torture. Crime free or low crime societies are a result of the effectiveness of the rule of law. The biggest deterrent to someone not committing a crime is the chance of getting caught. For that you need an effective justice system and the rule of a law. A police that spends its resources in catching real criminals rather than browsing through the internet figuring out which porn sites to block or going through our parks to arrest teenagers kissing and holding hands!

Life- sentence has NEVER been a deterrent, because the criminal is kept alive and is provided for by the very society that he/she has violated. Look at every single country that has done away with the death penalty and adopted "life imprisonment" - USA, UK etc. The criminal also knows that if he is able to convince the legal system that he has repented and changed his ways he can be paroled!! We need to look at the issue intelligently.

i like the thread on "national sport of sri lanka". But remember that some people decided to valiantly protest when goats were lined up for slaughter in a religious festival. Are goats more valuable than humans in sri lanka?

This is horrendous to say the least. We have had 18 murders from the 1st of August to date!! We cannot understand why proper punitive measures have not been implemented by the Government to stop SL becoming a "Killing field".

No third degree methods to be used against any suspect. This is what all lawyers are clamouring for their clients.Let the law take its normal course. Why should u bring in the hangman just because the lawyer is killed. They are the whole time fleecing clients and saving murderers.

it could be KARMA making a pay back. Sadly MOST lawyers are professional liars... and make their living by squeezing out their clients. May be there are some who feel sympathy towards the feeble and destitute. Wonder if we have a legal aid system that helps the poor who cannot afford high fees that the lawyers demand...

Time for all the briefless lawyers to go on strike!! Do we know that the fate that befell this lawyer was something arising from his own life and actions?? There are many idiots who rush to condemn a murder even in circumstances where the deceased deserved to die.

Unfortunately, this lawyer was not families with "Para Bhava Suutraya " and not followed the basic principals of Buddhism. The cause for his personnel tragedy is clearly stated in the " "Holy Suutra"
