Though people like Dutroux should be killed in a very horrofic way. Not by the law, but an assasin should kidnap him, improsen him, abuse him and then kill him, in the most painful way thinkable.
Actually, this is similar to how some countries interrogate people. They sit in a room asking questions, and when they don't get the answer they would like, have someone from another country (that doesn't mind doing this sort of thing) break a finger or something.
But anyway, if the point of prisin was solely punishment, they might as well just give everyone in there a life sentence. In my opinion, there should be some aspect of rehabilitation in there, so if the state kills them, that aspect is gone.
