Life sentences should mean "whole of natural life" for murder.

Also any act of violence which leads to death should be treated as murder and attract a whole life sentence.





Why is this idea important?

Current life sentencing falls way short, even of the current average life span. Violent criminals also seem to escape with the lesser offence of manslaughter even when someone dies as a result of their violent behaviour.

Only today the local paper reported a youth being given a 4 year sentence for repeatedly punching another youth who later died as a result. This is totally disgusting and should have attracted a whole of life sentence.
