It depends in which way i see it, According To the English law system, it was right Because the judges in trial sentenced him for accessory to murder and according to the english law system he will get death penalty. But from a logical point of view it was not right , Because Derek did not do the worst part and he got harder punishment than his friend who killed the police officer . Derek did not do the worst party and he regret it During the incident , but the biggest thing That took big place in the judges decision was Derek's age . He was old enough to get death penalty while his friend who did the worst part ...view middle of the document...
At the same time i also think Derek should get a Milder punishment for his party in this case , but we can not blame the judges for doing their job, the sentences they give to people are based on our law system and the law system its made by us . We Should derogate to follow the law in some cases. Cases where the age Should not play a big part . Or hopefully we can change the law and make all sentence more fair in the future ..
Here we are, broadcasting live from the studio. Derek Bentley have just been hanged after being sentenced for accessory to murder.
The public is very disapointed and angry for hanging the Derek while the one who did the worst only got prison. The public are saying that the judges decision was not fair and they criticize us for our law system . Im gonna start to say that we have to follow our countryies laws as all the other countries. If we don´t follow it we can´t controll the society and there will be more injustice in the society. At the same time i also think Derek should get a milder punishment for his part in this case, because he did not do the worst and he regret it during the case. The judges did their work based on the english law system, so we can not blame them for doing their job. We should derogate in some cases, like this one.
Because in this case the biggest thing that took place in the judges decision was Dereks age, we will change it in the future and hopefully we will make the sentences more fair.
