    Brilliant, so you put blind faith in the Scottish justice system.

    Ok, I lean on the liberal side, but this is killing me. This guy killed 270 people as a terrorist and they are "showing him mercy," because he has a terminal illness!!!!!? That's karma bitch! He should have rotted and died in prison. Thoughts?

    I think they are trying to make the word "compassionate" synonymous with the word "moron" or "idiot". The fact this man only has months to live is irrelevant regardless if he only had one victim or 270 victims. I think the title of the thread title should be "Scotland loses its mind",Scotland doesn't believe in justice anymore" or "Scotland pisses on the victims of terrorism".

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I do not know about Scotland but in the US we have this belief innocent until proven guilty.The man was proven guilty in a court of law therefore he is no longer innocent.

    I don't even see a room for debate here.
    The person was convicted, and was never acquitted - he is guilty.
    And now he's released to roam the streets because we all know that terrorists have rights too, and they should die with their family and not in some dark cell in prison.

    CIA should task a couple of hard hitters to put two, or three rounds in his grape.

    That is because you (and most others who have bothered to post in this thread) have refused to even look at the case, let alone bother to try and understand the complexities of it.

    Complexities? He killed 270 people. He was sentenced to life in prison. He should die in prison. Nothing complex about that.

    Do you know what evidence there was against Megrahi?

    Do you know the circumstances surrounding his extradition and trial?

    Do you understand the political pressure there was to get some type of conviction?

    Are you even interested?

    Or would you rather just transform a complicated issue into a simplistic and ugly round of populist hand wringing?

    Is whining to ensure that "We're not all like that" about this case? CLASSIC!

    HOWEVER, the Scot's should be ashamed of their government right now.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
