    Sri Lanka should consider carrying out the death penalty with no right of appeal for killing a tusker. Imposing it and not carrying it out will have no effect.

    I agree Ken, But we are a "Buddhist country". We proudly protect criminals and neanderthals in a culture trapped in the hunting and gathering practices as early ancestors did.
