The Judge who sentenced this monster years ago said he should never see day light, he went through all of the evidence and saw how evil he is.  The parole board and I would imagine a psychiatrist think he is ready to be released because he’s been rehabilitated. How reliable is their evidence?

 

Give the families of these girls who he murdered justice, keep him in prison. A life sentence shouldn’t be called a life sentence when it’s not.

 

I agree.

delete - I was talking ******

Hmm, maybe you are right, I just recall Brady became eligible for parole eventually and not many did worse than what he did.

It's not a maybe.

 

Good to see that David Copeland ,the Brick Lane/Soho bomber got him minimum term increased from 30 to 50 years before being liable for parole.

I’m not in favor of a mandatory death penalty. But I’ve no problem with executing people who have killed others and whose guilt like Pitchfork is beyond doubt including DNA evidence or being caught in the act.

Yes but then it's going to be extremely arbitrary method of justice.

Brady did not become eligible for parole.

As the case goes back to 1966,  his sentence came under a number of versions of "life sentence" as described by the Home Office.

One version was an "indeterminate" sentence was ruled to be a breach of  human rights, This was widely reported at the time and changed for all "whole life" convicts.

Hindley died just before a court decision which could have led to parole.

Where have I got it in my head he became eligible for parole after 40 years then? Hmm.

I think Pitchfork got someone else to take the DNA test on his behalf, initially.

I don’t think it would arbitrarily at all. If you are found guilty by irrefutable DNA evidence or caught in the act of killing then you will be sentenced to death if not you will be given life .

No place in a civilised society for the death penalty.
