I do not advocate for such derailed humans.
Capital punishment, though, can have _other_ justifications.
Such as those, who kill (eat) or harm cows deserve death penalty in the Hindu beliefs. Now, Hindu community is large in this part of the world. Should they raise their concerns over beef industry and beef consumption in this country?
This person once was a child himself. What caused this terrible abberation? What are the odds of this re-occuring somewhere else? What is in the _society_ which causes such a malfunction? May be, meat consumption, which is regarded as source of all evil deeds _is_ the source?
"Well-dressed, cooked with salt or without salt, meat, in whatever form one may take it, gradually attracts the
mind and enslaves it."
The Mahabharata, Anusasana Parva, Section CXIV
"The sin of eating meat is ascribed to three causes. That
sin may attach to the mind, to words, and to acts. It is for this reason that men of wisdom who are endued with penances refrain from eating meat."
- The Mahabharata, Anusasana Parva, Section CXIV
"That man who wished to increase his own flesh by the flesh of another living creature is such that there is none meaner and more cruel than he. In this world there is nothing that is dearer to a creature than his life. Hence (instead of taking that valuable possession), one should show compassion to the lives of others as one does to one's own life."
