I'll shed no tears for her, but had she been hanged she would have been remembered as the "last woman to be hanged".Hindley spent 36 years behind bars, knowing she would never be free, a long, drawnout punishment.Also this week, a man freed from a life sentence for a murder he didn't commit and always denied, even when offered parole, in 1990, if he admitted guilt.Had he been hanged there could never be compensation.
