The bastard should rot in jail but VERY rarely do we give people life.
What sort of message are we sending to society? You can kill as many people as you wish, just develop cancer and you can walk free.
First the train robber
Then the women and partner who tortured and beat and raped a child to death
Now this filth.
This law is a joke. This country is beginning to become a joke if we cannot even punish those who break the law
The system is not perfect. Far from it.
The case for his innocence is apparently very strong.
The solution here is to expedite the appeal process which has been ongoing, instead of releasing him on compassionate grounds. At this rate, by the time they get around to anything, the man will be dead. And what if it turns out that he actually was innocent?
"Yes, but are you a Protestant atheist or a Catholic atheist?".- Northern Irish joke
Which was mainly circumstantial and rested massively on the testimony of someone the head of the prosecution would later describe as "a few apples short of a picnic"!He had evidence brought against him.
Of course not!Do we now condone murder in this society?
That is why we should find out who is really responsible for this horrific crime and not force some sacrificial lamb to die in a jail cell thousands of miles from his family!

We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon
Was he tortured? No.
Did he face a Judge? Yes.
Did he have his case heard? Yes.
Did he have access to a lawyer to defend his case? I believe that is also a yes.
What part of that was 'unfair'?
There is something dangerously wrong with British society and indeed any society when we seem to care for the criminal than the victims. What about those American and British families that lost members? Do their wishes not matter?
I think this entire episode is a disgrace.
That means he's responsible for the murder of more that two hundred people.
Tough **** about his family, he's a mass murderer and if those people were respectable people they'd heave his ass into the gutter if he showed up at their house. If they're not respectable, they don't matter.
