So , lets get to the gist of the talk , Death Penalty , what do I think of its existence as a whole? In my opinion as an ordinary person , no matter how heinous a crime could have been executed nor a person was handled in a cannibalised way for the sake of feeding of ones soul with satisfaction of pain infliction, it is not in our hands to take a life as we are not the Creators here , yes we get the power through Law but you're not God. Well , that’s my opinion as a layman but on a legal perspective I would say I'm in a confused state as you have it differs where you would on defence to save one from going to the Gallows while the other day you would be the prosecutor who just goes rogue on every level just to send one to the gallows as a way of serving justice for the good ones as stated by our Third Speaker, Yang Bhg.Mr Haji Hasnan Hamzah who in my opinion was the Best Speaker and a pretty good looking brainy alright .
The talk started with Yang Amat Arif Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Richard Malanjum , who was very neutral in his take on the Death Penalty especially on the s.39 and 39(A) of DDA where having Death Penalty for offences such as Drug Trafficking are amended to a way where the Judge has the choice of granting that nor life imprisonment , in which Yang Amat Arif had stated its harder for the choice maker than the consequence bearer and for Malaysia to abolish it in general for all offences , well he is off the comment that its going to be a long run and relies that it should be granted only circumstantially but would try to avoid it any cost if its up to him , while our second speaker somehow sided him in a way but is working towards the abolishment of it as a whole where Dr. Aishah Bidin , the Commissioner of Suhakam had stated that NHRI welcomed the removal of death penalty for DDA and reinstatement of discretion of power of court in delivering much less punishments which comes compliying with certain conditions that would be imposed by the court and by the rate of death penalty going like shopping spree these days , there are 1,267 prisoners are on death row which is not even coming to the amount of detainees for drug trafficking which is a whooping 702,319 of em , shut the front door , and as she had stated a nature of a crime is not easy to be scrutinised on this , and its very circumstantial to just abolish it just like that.
But I would say the show stealer would be the talk by Mr.Haji Hasnan Hamzah where he really gave an excellent input and also in introducing how one can be in a confused state when we come down to this topic where the definition and impact of Death Penalty differs when you are either on the Prosecution nor on the Defence, what is the most that caught me on his talk was his way with words and his opinion where by abolishing Death Penalty its not going to deter one from committing a crime as they take pleasure from than taking the punishment from it , which puts into perspective in many levels and how justice at the end of the day is a lonely word where no one supports it and how it is in a point of view where if its just for one might not be for another at the end of the day.
What I can say is after this whole talk , I am definitely leaning on a confused state where death is the solution for deterring the wrong doers nor an instigator of the upcoming of many ?
