- I have recently watched Paradise Lost on Foxtel and I must confess
that in the beginning I was horrified by the crime and the previews of
the film had me assuming that these three boys committed it but as I
watched my opinion changed. I have never really had an opinion on the
death penalty as we don't have it here but I believe at the very least
these men deserve a totally new trial. How can your court possibly
sentence a young man to death with all the conflicting evidence his
defence has discovered. I am only a bystander in another country but I
cannot understand a legal system which allows this to happen.
My feelings toward the death penalty have altered after watching this
film. I could not possibly condone it when a man can lose his life
due to such a situation.
I am hoping that as I write this that Damien is still alive and
fighting. Could anyone give me some feedback?
