The Lockerbie Bomber, also known as Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, was convicted of bombing the Pan Am Flight 103 on December 21, 1988. He is responsible for the deaths of 270 innocent people. In my opinion, he is no better than any other murderer. And now, because he has terminal prostrate cancer, Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill is allowing his release to go and die in his homeland “on compassionate grounds.” This is hardly fair to the victims and their families! They did not get any last moments with their loved ones, or die in the comfort of their own surroundings. Instead it was in a firy hot airplane as it was blown to pieces by this man or by the remains of the jet crashing down on them. So why should his fate be anything less? I think he should have been put to death, but at the very least, he should die in prison.
