    Five years should be quite enough to punish them for what they did.
    Shove them into a prison and then leave them to the 'mercy' of the other
    prisoners. Especially black prisoners, and/or prisoners with teenage
    sons of the same age as the lad they so brutally murdered. Alternately,
    just let them loose in Bradford or Brixton. Or even Liverpool. I'd
    happily join the queue of people waiting to lay into them...

    Yep, complete load of cobblers most of it. To hell with political
    correctness, it's about time we forgot to be afraid to say what we

    Frankly, I'm finding that I don't really care whether they did it or
    not. The very fact that they are serial criminals who seem to feel that
    it's OK to rob and burgle makes them prison fodder in my view. And I
    too can think of lots of better uses for the money. Another reason to
    let the inmates loose on the abstrads.

    Worth remembering that they got life. The number of years reflects
    the time when they can start whining about being let out on licence.
    There is no guarentee that they will come out, and if released, they
    are liable to be recalled at any time.

    Bye bye and good riddence.
