16 years for murder and torture.

This is the sentence imposed for this type of crime in modern Britain.

Should say 16 years 'minimum' sentence (life?) to get the facts right. The partner got 5 years.
Who says crime does not pay.

Apparently it will be deported after serving its sentence. The woman involved is more to be pitied, I suppose, as she (it) only got 5 years. Poor thing.

Damn, nearly forgot that there was a victim here,
silly me.

Just to add he did this due to avoid being Deported?

I disagree with the sentence totally. He should be put on a scaffold, a rope around his neck and then dropped.

Hanging is simply state-sanctioned revenge killing, and achieves nothing, which is why enlightened nations have abolished capital punishment.

I'm a bit puzzled how these sentences are set. The sentence was life with a minimum of 16 years to be served before deportation I assume. How does someone come to a conclusion of a 'minimum' jail sentence while serving a life sentence?

Surly in this age of cost-cutting and recession it is a great reduction in the spending of taxpayers money. You don't have to feed, cloth or shelter them. How much is 16 years in prison going to cost us.

trouble is FE once said Saudi Arabi was not a civilised country because they had the death penalty.
By inference he is now saying America is not an enlighted nation because they allow certain states to have the death penalty.

People in care homes did not do anything to deliberatly deserve to be in them. Slightly different from a child killer.
