The Death Penalty. A deafening silence

 In the wake of the trial of policeman, Wayne Couzens, there has been universal silence on the question of the death penalty. Why is this?

It is true he pleaded guilty at the trial, thereby saving the family of murdered Sarah Everard from going through what would have been a harrowing trial but nevertheless his crime was so heinous that many, possibly a majority, of the public might support his execution. That politicians and lawmakers don't want to reintroduce the death penalty should not mean that the majority of the public are denied a say in the matter. The UK is, after all, a democracy; isn't it.
