Suzette Mclennon sgt cd Beckford Vincent Scott no to abolishing death penalty most jamaicans interviewed yesterday gave a decisive no to the question of abolishing the death penalty. I see no sense in hanging a Man who is the father of six children for killing another Man who had five said one interviewee. It would be better for the murderer to be. Made to labour under supervision to support his victim s Chil Dren As Well As his own children instead of leaving 11 fatherless children who might have to join up with criminal elements because of being in need and being he added. Following Are the views of some of those interviewed mrs. R. Roberts self employed i feel that if hanging is abolished it would be like giving licence to gun men knife men and Machete Wield ers to kill. Once some people realize that they will Only get a prison term for murder they will kill at the winking of an Eye. I also feel that those who have been found guilty of certain Murries should be hanged instead of being fattened to be released and prey on the society miss Melissa Webb schoolgirl i do not think that the death penalty should be abolished altogether except for certain types of murders. The penalty should remain for those involved in Wanton and senseless killings. I also feel that depending on the types of murders committed by those on death Row some offenders should be hanged and some put to work in the Rural areas to help boost Jamaica s production drive., lbs Suzette Mclennon Secretary i do not think that Jamaica is mature enough to entertain the abolition of capital punishment. I believe that if it should be abolished at this time then the Inci Dence of murder will increase greatly. For those on death their Legal machinery should Speed up appeals both locally and at the privy Council for a final decision on their Fate. Sgt. C. C. Beckford if the death sentence is abolished it is highly Likely that Jungle Justice will increase to unmanageable pro portions with brother seeking to avenge the death of brother friends seeking to avenge friends deaths Etc. And that will go on and on forever. To abolish it would be like shopping a problem with which we can live for one that is More dam aging. As for those on death Row. The proper channels should be Pur sued and a decision taken either to hang or release them As the Case maybe. Or. L. Salesman Abo Lishing the death penalty will not solve the problem of murder in the society but rather cause it to Esca late. It seems that we have a far Way to go before we can think about abolishing it. If it is done prematurely then it is quite Likely Many would go on a murder spree even without provocation. In rela tion to murder convicts on death Row i believe that the process of Appeal in the local courts of appeals and at the privy Council should be seeded up. Or. Vincent Scott steel worker i believe that for certain kinds of murders offenders should be Given a Chance or the Benefit of the lesser charge of manslaughter. But for such killings like those in sea View gardens hanging should not be abolished me murder for which some people should be Given a Chance include unintentional kill arising from a fight Between two persons. I also feel that the authorities should Speed up what Ever is to be done about those on death Row and either hang them or release them.
