    I'm not too educated on this whole Lockerbie Bombing thing. However having heard both sides here, what if he really was innocent, and if he isn't. I don't understand why the **** he was released.

    He wasn't released because anyone thought he was innocent. He was released because he supposedly had terminal cancer, had only a few months to live, and they thought it would be nice if he were able to die at home.

    I knew that much, still bogus since he's still alive.

    and they thought it would be nice if he were able to die at home.
    I bet the victims families wish their loves ones could have died at home on their death beds at least. I have no sympathy for this bastard if he did it. But if there is evidence to the contrary we must not be so quick to wish such terrible things upon him.

    Otherwise **** the mother****er

    He was duly convicted and no one thinks he's innocent. Except, apparently, PeteEU, but then he also thinks the only reason anyone's interested is because of BP. ()

    Seeing how he was convicted in a court of law of a terrorist act, he is a terrorist.

    "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"

    The US is still much more about vengeance than mercy.

    " ... Though federal law has a statutory provision for compassionate release in 18 USC § 3582(c), the application of this statute has been notoriously stingy (as recently detailed by Mary Prince in this recent Federal Sentencingt Reporter article). As detailed in this ABA document, the US Sentencing Commission a few years ago issued new guidelines concerning the implementation of federal compassionate release rules. But the reactions of the White House and the Secretary of State to Scotland's decision in this high-profile case spotlights that the concept of compassionate release is still not seriously embraced in the United States. ... "
