A chef today admitted murdering an innocent teaching assistant because he was ‘in a bad mood.’
A poor innocent woman, who’d just nipped out to walk her dog, something that millions of Britons do each day, brutally murdered for no reason whatsoever.
One can only imagine the sheer horror that the unfortunate Mrs Sally Garwood must have experienced when a complete stranger grabbed her and decided to end her life.
Robert Cusworth has offered no real explanation for doing what he did, other than that he was in a bad mood. One can only hope that upon reaching prison, he runs into lots of nasty people in similar bad moods.
Justice of sorts
Cusworth, the cowardly scum that he is, at least did one thing right, he admitted what he had done. Saving the witnesses, one of whom was just nine years old, the trauma of having to give evidence in court. Although he is likely to get a ‘life’ sentence, it is unlikely to give Mr Garwood, nor the family of his wife, the justice that they deserve. No matter how many years he gets, he’ll only serve half of them, and as I have mentioned previously, not necessarily in what most of us would term ‘a prison’.
Sally Garwood had planned on starting a family with her husband Simon, but a simple walk with the dog through her local park ended any such hopes for Sally. She’ll never now have children or do anything else again. She’d probably left her home that morning, like any one of us, planning her day, her future perhaps. Instead she spent her final moments in agonising terror because the sick and callous Robert Cusworth had felt a little down that day.
Cusworth, who’s 25 years old, will most likely be out of prison and getting on with his life before he reaches 40. Indeed he’ll most likely be out before he reaches 34, the same age that Sally Garwood reached before she was brutally slain by him.
Instead of picking his child up from primary school, Mr Garwood will most likely still be trying to come to terms with the loss of his wife by the time that Cusworth is released, most likely early, further adding to his continuing pain. For those that lose someone in such tragic and senseless circumstances, the pain doesn’t end until they too die.
I’ve said it before, and I will continue saying it. We have the abolitionists to thank for people like Robert Cusworth.
Capital punishment cuts re-offending rates
The very fact that a man would consider going out and harming someone, especially with a knife, is because we have no effective means of punishment in Britain. There are no decisions that can have drastic or life limiting consquences for people like Robert Cusworth. What matter was it to him if he hurt or killed someone? He’d be OK. At worst he’d served a decade or so in prison, most likely with Satellite television in his room, access to the latest games consoles and games, day releases for study or even shopping trips. Not to mention on site medical and dental care.
Yes, that’s the worst that he could face. At best he’d be declared mentally ill, and then be let out to do it again in just a few years.
For those that state that hanging is no deterrent – rubbish! The man clearly thinks often of his own well being, deciding against tackling a lone male jogger as he wasn’t an easy enough target. The nine year old school boy most likely has Sally Garwood to thank for being in front of him, otherwise he’d have most likely being the target of Cusworth’s ire.
Had Cusworth really been that down hearted and depressed, he’d have killed himself, but no, because he valued his own life so highly, and because society values the lives of innocent, law abiding citizens so cheaply, he had far less to lose by killing someone else.
The murder rate in Britain has tripled since 1965 when Sydney Silverman MP, a pacifist and conscientious objector finally got his wish and the death penalty was effectively abolished. Thank god there were not more like him during World War II.
Prior to this the murder rate has been decreasing virtually year on year for nearly a century. The murder rate stood at 6.2 murders per million people in Britain in 1960 and began to rise when it became clear that the death penalty was to be abolished, since then it has barely looked back, topping 20.3 murders per million by 2002.
Robert Cusworth and people like him need to be hung, anyone callous enough to kill a total stranger for no other reason than they were in a bad mood deserves to lose the only thing that people like this truly value, their own life. Once, taking someone’s liberty would have been considered a serious punishment, but in modern Britain it has become laughable. The only real punishment is the same one that these kind of people dish out willy nilly, one that is irreversible and final. Death.
Judging by the trend in murder rates for the 100 years prior to the abolition, Sydney Silverman and his like minded liberal colleagues have been responsible for the needless deaths of more than 3000 innocent people, all to save the lives of a few hundred murderers.
