Thanks for your interest mate. The last time it was used in Australia was on Feb 3,1967 on Ronald Ryan he supposedly shot prison officer during an escape form Prison but there were no forensic or ballistic evidence to prove conclusively that he did it. He supposedly confessed but it was claimed the confession was coerced. The method used was Hanging.
There are plenty of times or cases which raise outcrys form the public about the re-introduction of the Death Penalty but the bleeding heart do-gooders and liberals oppose it. Meanwhile the criminals seem to have more rights in the judicial system than the innocent and the law is fast becoming a joke.
It infuriates me that Australia is fast becoming just as bad if not worse than the rest of the world. I think that is why I am becoming such a Grumpy Old Man. To be honest I think we need a few Tea Parties of our own.
