This just cannot be right

Recommended Posts

Road rage killer Kenneth Noye has been recommended for transfer to an open prison,

the Parole Board said.

 

Noye, 68, stabbed electrician Stephen Cameron, 21, to death in a road rage attack in 1996.

He went on the run after the murder on the M25 in Kent but was captured in Spain in 1998

and jailed for life with a minimum tariff of 16 years in 2000.

 

he Parole Board confirmed it has not directed for Noye to be released but has recommended

to the Ministry of Justice that he is suitable for a move to open conditions.

 

A Parole Board spokesman said: "We can confirm that a panel of the Board has not directed

the release of Kenneth Noye but has recommended to the Ministry of Justice that he is suitable

for a move to open conditions.

 

"It is up to the Ministry of Justice whether or not to accept this recommendation."

She added: "In considering a recommendation for open conditions, the Parole Board is required

to make a balanced assessment of the risks and benefits of such a move, the emphasis should be

on risk to the public."A prisoner can be returned to closed conditions at any time if there are adverse

developments that make it no longer safe for the prisoner to be held in open conditions."

In a previous incident, career criminal Noye stabbed an undercover officer to death outside

his mock Tudor mansion, after the £26 million Brink's-Mat bullion heist, but successfully pleaded self-defence.

 

 

 

They may think he is no longer a danger to the public but I bet that the first chance he has, he will be off out of the country. A double murderer with a 15 year minimum term sentence, he has little to loose.

Of course he is a danger to the public - his record stands for itself- two murders committed by stabbing the victims. He is a simple example of why I believe in capital punishment - by his personal actions he has forfeited the right to live in society.

 

But I won't hold my breath and be not at all surprised if he gets a transfer to an open prison and, eventually, will go on-the-run.

Do not forget that the first murder was of a Police Officer, which he somehow was found not guilty of. He was a very dangerous and unstable person, and still is.

Not to mention witnesses who testified against him being killed under questionable circumstances or having to live another life under witness protection. Why should he be entitled to a life?

Just playing devil's advocate for a minute, the average length for a murder sentence is around 16 years. Looking at the aggravating and mitigating factors, he doesn't score particularly highly on the agg factors, so 16 years is probably about right (according to the tariff that Blunkett set).  It's the average sentence served for murder.

 

As he got off the first murder (rather than he was innocent as he wasn't in my book!) he has only been convicted of the one.

We went soft on crime and criminals long ago and by even suggesting that a criminal with Noye's track record and notoriety be considered for anything other than a prison with a high security regime we are basically indicating to all and sundry that we do not take the crimes he committed and the harm he did to his victims as serious matters.

Your forgetting one key thing in this human rights obsessed country - as a criminal his rights trump those of law abiding citizens every single time!
