    This has not been proven and is only a theory.
    but don't let opinion get in the way of facts.

    He was found guilty. Glad he finally is gone.

    I shed no tears for one such as he.

    The man has finally passed away as expected, so now maybe the American Gov can stop its bitching and moaning.
    He should have been brought to justice for his crimes. That he passed away does not change the reality that in the end he was permitted to escape justice.

    No - I'm not done bitching. 3 years of freedom = 3 years too long.

    He still disgusts me - they still disgust me for letting him go - he was given a hero's welcome home . . . I still want to vomit. What a sick pig. That's one government and judicial system I'll never appreciate, say anything positive about or come to remotely respect.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Agreed... he should have spent his last hours in a dank, stinking jail cell. What a shame that didn't happen.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I am absolutely baffled at how they could let a convicted mass murderer walk free. He claims he's innocent, and maybe he is; I'm all about appeals and an innocent man fighting for a turnover on his conviction... However, until that conviction is officially turned over and he's acquitted WHY would you let him go? Ridiculous.

    Re: Lockerbie

    I already explained it. You let him go home to die, on the basis that he's likely to win his appeal, leaving you with egg on your face, nobody guilty of the crime, and the real killer still free (incidentally he still is.) Instead of that, he gets to go home right now, but only on condition that he withdraws his appeal. He agrees, because by the time the appeal is heard, and he wins, he might die in prison in Scotland.

    From the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Board...

    " ...27.216 In accordance with the principles set out at the beginning of this chapter the
    Commission has also considered whether, notwithstanding its conclusion that a
    miscarriage of justice may have occurred, the entirety of the evidence considered by it
    points irrefutably to the applicant’s guilt. The Commission’s conclusion is that it does
    not.
    27.217 In these circumstances the Commission believes not only that there may have
    been a miscarriage of justice in the applicant’s case, but also that it is in the interests
    of justice to refer the case to the High Court. The Commission accordingly does so. "
