    This is the major news story in the UK right now other than the Iraq kidnap. What has struck me throughout was that Anthony was only 18 and yet his family have always said they will forgive whoever killed him. That is truly the power of Christ.

    That is wonderful that they can forgive them.

    Now, hang 'em. Hang 'em high!

    What an awful story! May God bless his mother for having the strength to publicly forgive her son's killers. I do not understand senseless racial violence, or any senseless violence for that matter.

    Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on your point of view) they will serve thirty years in prison at least.

    I am with Ken on this one...but know that the liberal soft on crime mentality of Europe as a whole would never allow that.

    One ust agree, however, that as a sovereign nation, they have the sovereign right to decide the disposition of criminal incarceration without being compared to us.

    Interestingly, the trend is that governments that have a life-in-prison penalty in luei of the death penalty tend to have less crime, not more. Still, however, that doesn't mean, imo, that the death penalty is immoral. I have no problem with California's use of the death penalty. Subsequently, I don't jave a problem with other states having life w/o parole instead. It doesn't mean they're more liberal, less conservative, or softer on crime, than I am (I will think so, but that doesn't mean that it's true [​IMG] )

    Hats off and lots of prayers for Gee Walker and her family (of Grace Family Church Liverpool). Because this was a racially-aggravated crime, the perps will serve a minimum tariff of 30 years instead of the usual starting point of 15.

    Joseph, I think the chances of parole before then are slim - don't forget, us libruls made Myra Hindley rot and die in jail.
