A Liberal Party President has called for a “review” of the state’s death penalty, saying that the system is “completely broken” and that it was being used to protect criminals.
“I think it’s completely broken.
The system is totally broken.
If you are guilty of a serious offence, you are going to be put to death,” Liberal Party leader Mark McGowan said.
“We’re going to review it.
I think the system has been abused by some people. “
And we’re going be looking at all of the factors that go into it, and I think we have a case for that.”
I think the system has been abused by some people.
I think the process is completely broken, and there are a number of ways of getting around it, but we will be looking into that.
“Mr McGowan made his comments in the aftermath of a number more high-profile cases, including the killing of Sydney’s Michael Hulme and the killing in the Australian capital of John Loyd, both of whom were convicted of serious crimes.
In October 2016, Mr McGawen said the death of Mr Hulmes mother and father “touched the conscience of the community”. “
I have been in politics for 17 years, and for that I’ve worked for over 10, and as a leader I’ve had to have a proper inquiry into these things, and that’s what this will be,” he said.

In December last year, Mr Loyd was sentenced to a total of 30 years for the murder of a woman and her daughter in a park in Sydney’s east, and was later released from prison.
