Petition Action

Do NOT bring back the death penalty but make life mean life

Additional Information

Some individuals are calling for the death penalty to be reinstated in the UK for certain crimes. We want the government to stop this from happening in order to ensure we have a criminal justice system and not a criminal vengeance system. However, those persons found guilty of committing crimes of murder should receive life sentences that actually mean life.
