Do murderers have human rights or have those been forfeited as a result of their crime?
Murder. All questions, no answers.
Is the style of murder the determining factor? Is that when life means life?
Is it who is killed that matters? Is that when life means life?
Is it how many are killed that counts? Is that when life means life?
So the type of death, who is killed, the number who die

Notes: “Ministers angry at European whole-life tariffs ruling.” Ministers have criticised a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that whole-life tariffs breach a prisoners’ human rights. In a case brought by murderer Jeremy Bamber and two other killers, judges said such sentences had to be reviewed at some point. To never have any possibility of parole was inhuman or degrading, they said. The prime minister said he “profoundly disagrees”. Justice Secretary Chris Grayling said the human rights convention’s authors would be “turning in their graves”.
