In 1988, 270 innocent people died a terrifying death due to the work of Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, who was working for the Libyan government.
After years of investigative work and diplomatic wrangling which we won’t rehash here, al-Megrahi was tried and convicted in a British court to 27 years in prison.
But he is about to go free because he has terminal prostate cancer. This is an afront to justice and an insult to the families of the 270 innocent civilians killed 21 years ago.
Part of murdering people and getting caught and thrown in jail is that you will very likely take your last breath in a barren hospital jail cell all alone. There is nothing honorable in letting monsters like Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi go free out of a false sense of compassion.
