Probably does not happen very often on the IOW, hence the news item.

The interesting part is that firearms offences are too prevailent. It's time to revert to the punishment regime of the early 1960s when we did not see nearly as much crime. While they're at it they should add drug dealers to the capital sentence instead of the stupid idea of legalising the stuff.

According to IOW news websites he was in possession of a knife and arrested for a breach of the peace.

So the same as this story then just they added in what he was arrested for.

Capital punishment does not work as a deterrent. This is simply a fact, which can be readily demonstrated by looking at crime rates over the years in capital and non-capital US states.

It deterred me when I reached 18 and stopped hitting so hard. The US is not the right place to compare as they have too many guns about. Fact is our murder rate has increased enormously since we abolished the death sentence, so bring it back.

What if the offender is legally a minor? Such as in the film called "Let'em have it" based on a true story? What then? Would it be the same as back then? The next person in line of responsibility gets the death penalty? I mean I'm all for it with the more serious offences such as rape, murder, terrorism and child abuse but in a way we still have to think about such things, not doing so plus major failings in the justice system of the 60's is what led to the death penalty being abolished for all crimes other than treason until recently when the EU said that even treason shouldn't be punishable by death, there should be safety measures in place for times when a person commits a crime but isn't all there, they're too young and other circumstances, obviously making it illegal to carry a firearm unless it's in a gun bag and you have a valid licence is a good thing, one of the few things our government did right was to not follow the stupid American government who made it a RIGHT to bear arms without a licence, hell, over there it's easier to buy a gun than to get into college.

I would be very interested in hearing just where you think the use of capital punishment went wrong in the 60s, as ALL the cases where alibis etc came out of the woodwork have since been proved to have been correct verdicts.
