Since when does anybody have sympathy for someone who blew up a commercial airliner?
Since there are terrorists in this world. They tend to stick together. I presume for them, he's a hero?
actually, he was set free because he's in the last stages of prostate cancer. have you ever been around someone who's in the last stages of prostate cancer? it's not pleasant, nor is it a pretty sight.
it is unfortunate that this man had enough belief in a cause to do what he did. he paid his dues, now he's paying the price. it's quite likely that the scottish gov't saw the rising costs in medical bills associated with his incarceration and decided he wasn't worth the effort.
I agree, people saying he was 'set free' are don't really understand his condition. He's not 'free' at all, and he won't even be alive in a few months time.
that's also true, but have more to do with law suits. Talking about sympathy has more to do with beliefs and strong convictions
Actually the decision to free him was based on 'compassionate release', which is only available to people with less than 3 months to live and basically just means transfering from prison to medical care for them to die.
Yes,trough a law suit. Not 'real sympathy ' in that. I don't think scottish people feel sympathy for this guy
Ok, call me a hard-ass, but why should we have any sympathy for this guy? He killed over 200 people. Cancer or not, I think he should be in jail for the rest of his life, whether its three months or thirty years. Maybe he should have thought about it when he was planning these people's murder.
I would have great sympathy for him, though, if it wasn't for that whole 'killing 200 people' thing...
The most disheartening and infuriating issue is this man was welcomed in home Libya as a hero. Thousands cheered not only his release, but primarily his “accomplishment.” This only emblazons and emboldens more with a terrorist mentality.
here's a bit more background information. it's not quite as cut and dried as you might think.
So one more of the hypocrite chapters in History !! I'm not going to comment as I'm not American. If I say everything I think of these wars and cold wars, I'll be banned from hubpages !!
all comments welcome, especially your, tantrum. of course, the article only points out what's known. it makes one wonder about the rest of the facts.
I agree that there are always things going on behind the scenes, honestly who really knows the truth. I highly doubt that it was Iran, however. I did my senior research paper in college on the 1988 Vincennes incident and, despite plenty of mistakes all around, claiming that Lockerbie was a retaliation is mere conspiracy theory.
I think it is clear-cut; arguing for his innocence is irrelevant because he has never been proved so. The argument is about compassion for a killer, not a review of the case.
It does seem to make more sense that it was Iran that did it.

I have an 18 month old, who is no where near ready for a toddler bed. He'd be up all night playing.. I'd find him in the morning, passed out haphazardly on the floor, stuffed kitten in one hand, lego block in the other.When do kids usually make the great switch to beds?

Do you find it strange Fox News--who had 24 hour coverage of the "invading horde" of criminals suddenly dropped their coverage the day after the election? No, I'm don't either as it was simply a ploy for Trump to get his ignorant base out to vote in the mid-terms.Since then neither Donnie...
