Image via WikipediaIt is time the courts stopped using the term "life sentence" as it no longer has any meaning in this country, because no one serves a life sentence nowadays no matter how many murders they commit, or how horrific they are.
Take the Lockerbie bomber for instance......270 lives.......A 27 YEAR LIFE SENTENCE he was handed out, that works out at 1 year for every ten victims.
Now they expect us to have some compassion because he is supposed to be dieing of cancer. SO WHAT! A life sentence WAS supposed to mean the convict died in jail, not serve so many years, then get released with the chance to commit more murders, and even if they are dieing, what gives them the right to go home to die.
WERE THE INNOCENT VICTIMS OF THE LOCKERBIE BOMBING ALLOWED TO DIE AT HOME?
If ever a job had the wrong title it is Kenny McCaskill's. JUSTICE MINISTER? WHAT JUSTICE?
Where is the justice in British courts nowadays?
Even if AL-Megrehi is only a fall guy to cover for the other people involved, he still played his part in the bombing, he knew he was to be tried for the murders, and allowed himself to become the fall guy, so he deserves to die in jail.
What it all boils down to is, that they want us to feel sorry for a mass murderer, and let the poor wee soul home to die.
Why don't we just release all the prisoners from jail and send them home. THEIR families will be missing them too, and after all its only costing the taxpayer money keeping them locked up for the little time they will be serving anyway.
The justice minister, and the European law on human rights was originally set up to help the victims, now they actually fight for the criminals rights, so I think its time for a change of title for them both.
THE EUROPEAN COURT OF INHUMAN RIGHTS! and THE INJUSTICE MINISTER!
Think on that, Kenny McCaskill, and all the other idiots that feel sorry for criminals.
