Jeremy Bamber murdered his parents, his sister and her two children in 1985 and was given a sentence of life behind bars without a chance of ever being release. Bamber thinks the sentence is ‘inhuman and degrading,’ and is appealing to the Grand Chamber of European Court of Human Rights. This case will test whether the UK law, allowing dangerous offenders to be sentenced to whole life tariffs, will be allowed. Seriously? I think the UK should break away from this so called “human rights” treaty with Europe if its laws are put into question continually. A country should have the right to govern as it sees fit, especially if it is designed to protect the majority from the evil that lurks among a selected few. Nanny State indeed. Oh and there is a queue of life tariff murderers and lawyers excitedly awaiting the decision.
Psst What “human rights” did his victims have? Shouldn’t the court be protecting THEIRS not HIS?
Mate, give the European Court of Human Right a buzz!
Oh my, seems three notorious British killers, who have been sentenced to die in jail, have approached the European Court of Human Rights because they believe their ‘human rights’ have been violated. Jeremy Bamber (slaughtered 5 members of his family), Peter Moore (murdered 4 men, 3 of which were gay) and Douglas Vinter (killed work colleague and later his wife) are all serving ‘whole life’ (no chance of parole) sentences for their heinous crimes but they want the chance to be released if they can prove they have reformed. Hmm seems life in jail is “inhuman” and “degrading” according to them. The Bigger problem is if the unelected European Court of Human Rights agrees, it could mean the Moors Murderer Ian Brady, Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe and even Rose West could someday be free too. Now wouldn’t that be nice. And what ‘human rights’ were all the victims given again?
