Only sad thing is that the last chance of finding where Keith Bennett was buried has now gone.

It would appear he was just 'born wrong' having had noted sadistic tendencies even as a young child.

He was caught, too late, and rightly never was freed, then he died, and that's about it really.

Except instead of wishing all sorts of terrible fates on him, it would be nice to think that those who studied this congenitally flawed individual learned something and that knowledge might stop another like him before it's too late.

As for him, he's gone - I never gave him any thought anyway and I will give him even less now. I won't however wish anything on him - I don't see any particular reason to become like him in order to celebrate his death

But I always gave a thought to the missing lad every time I drive over that Moor.

May be mine is an unpopular view but I believe even the worst people alive are more damaged than they are evil. I feel no sympathy for him and there's no regret from me he died (clearly) but I can't wish he suffers any further and think even the most horrific people deserve peace in the end. I have never had to go through what his victims or their families did but I'd hope if I did I would feel forgiveness and not anger. Whether I would or not I dont know.

I agree - don't see why we should become like him, we are meant to be the civilized ones after all, as opposed to deranged sadists who take pleasure in others pain .......................

He had been suing for the right to die 'by his own hand' for some years. It is unfortunate that we were denied the opportunity of finding our whether he meant it or not.

All those in that situation should be allowed to choose a painless death instead of enduring a more normal span living with their guilt or regret of being caught.

For the genuinely remorseful or the recalcitrant it would be the same humane option. To deny them it goes some way towards the State being as inhumane on our behalf as they have been to their victims.

Hence my 'long overdue' remark....Brady wanted to let 'nature' take its course. Had he died there would have been some sort of closure, for the families affected, long ago.....

Yes, and without being too Conservative about it, think of the savings to the public purse.

And I have the kindest thoughts for human beings suffering from it. We are not talking about a human here are we? This is a scumbag who even God seemed to write off. The piece of **** didn't even have the decency to reveal were the little lad was buried so keep your sympathy for the families of the 5 children.

I wouldn't wish death on my worst enemy, but l wish those poor families could have had closure from Lan Brady by him giving the whereabouts of their loved ones bodies. Evil individual that he was.

Me too, and not just that moor.

Are we too nice to people like him? Should we have invited him to spill the beans about little Keith's grave site, in exchange for not being slowly and excruciatingly tortured--even to ultimate death if necessary? Instead, we allowed Keith's mother to endure a lifetime's torture at Brady's hands.

No more to see here, lets move on.
