It will cost us £1.6million to keep Sarah’s killer in jail. Save the money and bring back the death penalty

They were haunting words. Beautifully written. From the heart. From the soul. From the brain. The victim impact statement by Susan Everard, mother of Sarah Everard, cannot be read without a wave of emotion enveloping you.
There were lots of phrases that hit home. The one that struck me was; ‘’She spent her last hours on this earth with the worst of humanity.’’
Another said; ‘’ We have kept her dressing gown. It smells of her and I hug that instead of her.’’
So what is to be done with Wayne Couzens, a revolting piece of humanity who used his position and uniform, to take Sarah of the streets of London and murder her.
I have always been in favour of the death penalty and there surely could not be a more perfect case for the state-sponsored death than Couzens.
Why should he allowed to spend the rest of his life in a warm and secure cell with three-meals a day while the Everard family are tortured every day at their loss.

Couzens is 48 and could reasonably be expected to live for another 40 years. The latest estimates I have seen is that average annual cost of looking after a prisoner is £41,000.
So just keeping that piece of filth fed and watered for the rest of his life will be, at today’s rates, £1.6million.
Frankly I don’t want to spend 50p on him.
The main objection to the death penalty is the possibility of injustice. I agree that saying oops we got that one wrong is clearly a risk and therefore only those killers that the courts were 100% convinced were responsible should be considered.
Further I would give the final nod to the families. After all they have to live with the pain. If my daughter were murdered like Sarah Everard I wouldn’t spend one second pondering the rights and wrongs.
I would signal my belief that the killer should die.
