Life Should Mean Life – Another CHR Cockup!

I was astounded to read reports today that the European Convention on Human Rights has once again interfered in British Law on the side of criminals. This time they are saying that to send a convicted killer to prison ‘for life’ was “inhuman and degrading”. They are talking about some of the most vicious and callous killers in our prisons, and say they have the right to a review of their prison sentence, with the possibility of release. Their report is in reaction to an appeal brought by three of Britain’s most brutal killers, namely, Jeremy Bamber, Douglas Vinter and Peter Moore.

Meddling European Judges.

Meddling European Judges.

In the opinion of the judges, for a life prison sentence to “remain compatible with the European Convention on Human Rights there has to be both a possibility of review and a possibility of release”. In effect, this means that the British Government must amend the law to ensure it complies with the CHR dictates, which would give life term prisoners the right to demand release. The Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights which consisted of 17 judges, did say that their decision did not mean that killers like Bamber,  Vinter and Moore could look forward to being freed in the near future.

Many UK politicians, including the Prime Minister David Cameron have openly disagreed with the verdict, in  fact the Prime Minister even went so far as to say in true politician fashion, that he was “very, very disappointed”. Ooooh David! Why don’t you just come out and say it David – “Shove your decision where the sun don’t shine”. That would really be telling the interfering busybodies!

Lets have a quick look at the killers in the spotlight in this case.

Jeremy Bamber Murdered His Entire Family For Profit

Jeremy Bamber Murdered His Entire Family For Profit

Jeremy Bamber, who was born in 1961, murdered his step-father, mother, sister, and her six-year-old twin sons in his parents’ home at White House Farm. He then placed the weapon, a shotgun, in the hands of his sister who suffered from schizophrenia, and shot her too to give the impression of a murder suicide by his sick sister. According to the prosecution in the case, he did this to secure a large inheritance. He received five life sentences in 1994.

Douglas Vinter - Double Killer

Douglas Vinter – Double Killer

Douglas Vinter, born 1970 in London, England, was first convicted of murder in 1996, having stabbed to death train worker Robert Eden (24) in a Middlesbrough railway cabin. At the time, Vinter had been working as a railway signalman. He served a mere nine years in prison for Mr Eden’s murder before being released and moving to Tees-side. A year after being released from prison, Vinter married Anne White, but they separated after seven months because during their stormy marriage, Vinter had attacked his wife twice. On 11 February 2008, he strangled and stabbed her to death at his mother’s home in Normanby, Teesside while high on drugs and alcohol.

Peter Moore Killed Four People

Peter Moore Killed Four People

Peter Moore who was born 1940, is a serial killer who in 1995 murdered four men, Henry Roberts, a 56-year-old gay man, Edward Carthy, a 28-year-old man whom Moore met in a gay bar, Keith Randles, a 49-year-old traffic manager, and Anthony Davies, 40. All were stabbed to death and mutilated  “for fun”.

Justice Secretary Chris Grayling said in an interview: “People will find the ruling intensely frustrating. I think this will simply reinforce the desire in this country for wholesale reform of our human rights laws. I suspect that the vast majority of the public think the court is just getting this wrong – at the very least it should be a matter for the British Parliament.” Well, you got that right Mr, Grayling!

There are of course many more killers of the same ilk serving life sentences in our prisons, in total 54, but some have had there sentences reduced even though they will still be old men when they are released.

Well, Mr. Grayling - 'Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!'

Well, Mr. Grayling – ‘Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!’

This whole saga brings to light once again how the EU Court of Human Rights is interfering in British Justice because it is being manipulated by criminals who more often than not get what they wish. It is a further stab in the back for the relatives of victims who must already face the prospect of their loved one’s killers often not getting a justifiable sentence. Many of these men, like Douglas Vinter, are repeat killers who have murdered someone else after being released from prison for their first murder. Others have killed multiple times, but still Strasbourg thinks we must respect their ‘Human Rights’. Well I say, to hell with their human rights and lets see the law on the side of the victims  for a change. It took ten years to deport the terrorist preachers Qatada and Hamsa because of their interference in British Justice, and I for one say NO MORE!

For me, the only course open to the government is to tell Strasbourg to get the hell out of the British Justice System and let us deal with these people under British Law!

Roy.
