The Canadian PM is not much respected by the people here, and his relatively small cabal of loyal followers would not be enough to get the death penalty back. (thank you Jeebus, for small mercies)
Violating and viciously killing a woman by raping her with a piece of steel so violently that her guts are ripped up? That type of savagery has no reasons attached. It is sadistic torture, not sexual gratification. It would be interesting to know if the perp really 'was' the young guy, or is he the patsy?
