Compassion for a murderer = Repulsive

August 25, 2009

Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed alMegrahi is responsible for the deaths of 270 people.

According to the law, he should have spent the rest of his life behind bars. Personally, I think a bullet in his brain would have been far easier and cost effective. I guess that’s why they don’t let me make such decisions.

Anyway, he is now a free man. He’s dying of cancer and in the name of ‘compassion’ the Scottish government released him and sent him home to Libya.

I have a hard time wrapping my head around anyone showing compassion to a murderer and a terrorist. Dying of cancer behind bars is the least of what he deserves.

What kind of a message does this send to the world? What does it mean for the families of the 270 people who lost their lives because of this man? Where is their justice now?

Perhaps I have a hard time wrapping my head around this notion of compassion for a murderer because it appears that reason only floats on the surface. What lies beneath that? What other motive spurred such a decision?

A murderer walks free and 270 people (not to mention their families) have had justice ripped away. I’m repulsed, truly.
