Bomber given record jail spell

A Palestinian serving a life sentence for bombing a synagogue and an airline office in Copenhagen has had his life sentence limited to thirty years by a court in Örebro. The sentence is the longest fixed-period tariff handed down in Sweden in modern times.

The man was given a life sentence in 1990 for a 1985 attack in the Danish capital. He and two other Palestinians planted two bombs - one outside the offices of American airline Northwest Orient and another outside the city's synagogue. One person was killed at the airline office. The man was convicted of murder, although lawyers say that today he would have been convicted under terror crimes legislation.

[...]

"He has been in jail for about 18 years and if the time limit had been set lower than thirty years they would have been obliged to release him immediately.

"Now, under the rules stipulating release after serving two thirds of a sentence, he will be let out after serving 20 years - in other words in 1.5 years,"

But the airline office person who got killed will never get his life back! Now- I know that life time prison sentences can be looked at as cruel and unusual punishment. But for cruel and unusual people it fit´s right to be imprisoned- for life!

*sigh* I'm sure he learned his lesson and will be a good murdersome jihad-joe in the future and blow himself up next time.

What's cruel and unusual is that tax-payers have to support these terrorists whether they remain in their country and receive aid, or "immigrate" and receive aid, or even kill people and wind up living in prison where they receive aid. It's as if there's no escape from somehow contributing to their support!
