Definitely not.

His victims have been let down by the Parole Board and surprise, surprise also by the police by the looks of it.

Hopefully someone with more power and common sense will step in and reverse the decision.

It's interesting that he wasn't prosecuted for a lot of other attacks and these other attacks cannot be taken into account by the parole board when they made their decision. Labour's Keir Starmer was responsible as the director of public prosecutions at the time.

Just reading a bit more about the story and it seems that the Parole Boards decision is binding and the Government can`t intervene.

Disgraceful. !!
One key aspect of democracy is that the government and the judiciary are independent and long should it remain so.

Although he was not charged for every one of his crimes, the parole board are aware of them all,

Experts, you can’t trust them.
If a person is not charged then they are not guilty; that is a cornerstone of justice and the law. The question is why was he not brought to trial, who made that decision and why?

Yes let him go and then let some of the menfolk of his victims know where he lives. I know which bit of him i would chop off he wouldn't be raping anyone else when i was finished with him.

Well if that`s the case, when he`s released, could he not be arrested and charged with one of the other crimes.

Do you think that that is a possibility , considering the public outcry.

I had to go to UK as a witness a couple of years ago. The case was investigated by both Spanish and English police and took 2 years to get to court. It is only when all investigations are complete that it is submitted to the Public Prosecutor who will only allow it to go to court if there is an 80% chance of winning. That 2 years could all have been a waste of time and money but as it happens it did go to court. Just shows the true cost of justice.

Surely if the prosecution and the life sentence result they wanted was possible without dragging 20 odd girls through court, the prosecution on a single case was the way to go, credit to KS I’d say.
How many times has a murderer serving a life-sentence been released after a relatively short sentence? They should have known that they needed those extra prosecutions to ensure he remained in prison.

Not trying to defend anyone, but is it just possible that those who were responsible for the prosecution at the time of the trial in 2009 thought believed that, having been given an indeterminate sentence, that a parole board would exercise better judgement before even considering a release this soon.

It also has to be noted that it wasn't until after the end of the trial that most of the other females who claimed that they had also been attacked actually came forward. Again, the police at the time and those in the prosecution service may have felt that he wouldn't be released at this time, and therefore didn't feel the need to drag these females through the system. Apart from the huge costs involved in bringing further prosecutions.

But then, isn't hindsight a wonderful thing?

I would hope that the probation regime that has been set in this case will mean that any infringement means that he will be returned to prison immediately. This happens in other serious cases, such as the probation conditions for Venables, the Bulger child murderer. He is back in prison yet again because a) he broke his conditions again, and b)he also faces charges for storing illegal photos of children.

I would sincerely hope that this time the courts wake up and invoke a life sentence with no further parole possibilities. He has proven, beyond any doubt, that he will always pose a danger to the public, and therefore needs to permanently lose his liberty. Unfortunately, that will cost the taxpayers.
