Oh but it pains me deep inside to say it but seriously fuck those dress wearing shitcocks, fuck them and their whole foggy fucking shit hole of a country right back into the cesspool of touchy-feely hippy feel good bullshit from whence it apparently came.
I mean really Scotland, compassionate release? Really!?
Listen, I get it in theory and would probably even support it when it comes to lesser crimes; nobody deserves to die in jail away from their family over a theft charge or some good old assault and battery. They made mistakes, they paid the price and when their life is coming to an untimely end there is some merit to showing them mercy but we’re going to be nice to the guy who was convicted of THIS!?
Sorry but I just don’t see a lick of sense in it.
So for those of you who don’t know the Scottish recently decided to release Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, the man convicted of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland in 1988 killing all 259 on board as well as 11 people on the ground. Megrahi apparently has terminal prostate cancer and scant few months to live and was released to go home and die in his native Libya. The reasoning behind this release had something to do with showing ourselves to be better than the sort of person who would commit such atrocities… a point I think most civilized people make every day by, you know, not blowing shit up…
I understand we all want to feel good about ourselves and be compassionate people who can live a life free of guilt about the choices we make but can any of you out there give me a sound and compelling reason why Megrahi shouldn’t die in jail beyond selfishly wanting to make ourselves feel better about who we are by being nice to somebody who doesn’t really deserve it? Think, for a second, about the families of the people killed on that flight, all the people who lost husbands, wives, parents and children, how compassionate is it to them to release the man who was convicted of killing their families so he can return home to a hero’s welcome?
Maybe I’m a little to eye for an eye but I think it was compassion enough that he was allowed to live after his conviction, he belongs in jail and he belongs there till he dies.
