26 years in prison at $75,000 p/year - $1.95m
The cost of a bullet - $2.50
If Police had shot him in the head - priceless

I dont condone violence here either. Bit of a shame that dealing with him didnt cost $2.50 though...

The cost would have been even less if the bullet had been put to good use the first time he committed a violent offense.

Too bad our government doesn't condone having people hung drawn and quartered...

Yes,I think all the do gooders who post their warm fuzzy feelings on e.g. NZ Herald views,should be made to pay for the cost of keeping this animal in prison,because I don't want to pay for it.
Whats really scary is that he's not the only sociopath who will be released to kill again,have a read through the violent offenders database on the sensible sentencing trust's website,lots of lovely humans eg.Gresham Marsh is up for parole this year among others,have a read through some of the links to articles about these animals and tell me you think these people can be normal citizens again...if they ever were.
I don't believe "murder" automatically requires the need to hang,but in Burtons case and quite a few others,most definitely.
