He's 79, in bad health and poses no further threat to society. Yes, he's unrepentant, but so are a lot of criminals who get let out. The only thing achieved by keeping him in jail is a further drain on money and resources.
Nope not right at all. Just because he's old and sick doesn't mean he should get off. Shows what a joke the judiciary system in Britain is, get sick or old and you get let out. That's in the rare instance that you get a sentence long enough to get old during.
It's sickening to be honest.
He fled to Brazil or wherever to live the high life on his ill gotten gains, finally returns to the UK, spends a few years in jail and is then let out again because he's ill.
He make a mockery of the justice system, imo. The worst thing is he's been totally unrepentant about his crime throughout, going so far as to brag about how he escaped justice by fleeing the country.
why do you achieve by keeping an old man who poses no threat to the society in jail ? waste of resources
He's a bit of a legend tbh
There is little point in keeping him in prison; it is better to show a modicum of mercy rather than embarking on a futile and morally ambiguous endeavour to keep him in prison, at great expense to the taxpayer.
He's no risk to society and releasing him is the humane thing to do. In his place I suggest they lock up the loan shark who was charging loans at rates of 2,500% and who got a suspended sentence this week.
No it isnt right but this guy is almost 80 and probably weeks from death. What harm is he going to do to society at his age?.
No it isn't right. Just because he's old and ill doesn't mean he shouldn't serve his sentence. I'm sure there are loads of prisoners in the same state but don't get released early.
