Lockerbie Bomber is to be released
Just seen on the news the Lockerbie Bomber is to be released! I think someone who carried out mass murder kill 270 should lever be let out even if he is ill. He should have a life sentance for each person he murdered.
What do you think?

No way should be be released. Lock him up for ever.

The man appears to be in the terminal stages of cancer so it looks unlikely that he'll spend much more time in jail whether he's freed or just dies.
Much more important, however, is the probability that he's not guilty - he was convicted just so that we could close the case and tidy everything up.
There are way too many implausible "facts" in the evidence that was presented at his trial.

I was about to post something similar. All I can really say about the man that was convicted is that his family must have been very well taken care of. Unlike the families of those both in the 'plane and on the ground.
Take note of the look on most of the faces in the photo's - do they look happy to be shaking his hand - I think not.

Strangely (or not) unlike all the others Blair looks really happy and Gaddafi does not

What about all the human rights of the people that were murdered.
For taking away someones human right to live, they should defer their own.

An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth? Where does that leave all our armed forces? And don't get me started on rules of engagement ....

One country's (group's) terrorism may be another's war. Don't get me wrong, I am by no means condoning the destruction of life, I think it is wrong by any method. I just think that one country's set of "rules" may or may not be the same as another's.

Steal from the state as Ronnie Biggs did and they will make an example of you. Straw only released him to bury bad news about the economy. (Less than a month after refusing to release him)

The guy in prison is so obviously a scapegoat it is unbelievable.
Also, one thing to note - dictators seem to have style and presence on their side. Look at photos of Hitler, Stalin, Hussein, Mugabe and others - they're all snappy dressers and are all good in a PR spot. (NOTE: This doesn't mean I like their policies or behaviour).
