Lockerbie Bomber freed?

Seriously? Words fail me.

Today, Scottish courts released Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, the bomber who blew up Pan Am Flight 103 over 21 years ago - killing 270 innocent people.

al-Megrahi was apparently diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer, and had been released for 'reasons of compassion.'

Understandably, the families of the victims of the bombing are disgusted. I don't blame them. There seems no acceptable reason for doing this. Murdering one person apparently gets you life in prison, but (inexplicably) murdering 270 gets you less jail time than a serious assault charge.

Personally, I think we should have given al-Megrahi just as much 'compassion' as he gave the victims of Flight 103 - and left him to rot in H.M.P. Greenock until the end of his miserable life.
