Yorkshire Ripper launches bid for prison release

#1
Personally, can't see this happening. He is/was a serial killer and will at some point relapse if he was given the opportunity IMO.

Peter Sutcliffe, convicted in 1981 of murder of 13 women, asks high court to set tariff which could lead to parole.

The serial killer Peter Sutcliffe is seeking a high court ruling to determine how much longer he must serve in jail. Sutcliffe, known as the Yorkshire Ripper, got 20 life terms in 1981 for murdering 13 women and attacking seven others.

The 63-year-old is now asking the court to grant him a finite sentence.

Sutcliffe, who is held in Broadmoor high security psychiatric hospital, will have to persuade the mental health review tribunal that he no longer poises a risk before he can be eligible to apply for parole.

Come on Jenny apparantly he's been ever such a good boy and he has served almost a year and a half per life sentence and if he keeps taking his happy pills I'm sure he'll manage not to take a hammer to any young ladies. Then again when he does go off his meds and murders someone we can have the fun of pass the blame where his doctors blame the probation service and they blame the parole board.

Surely the best way to handle the situation is for someone to jam a spoon into his good eye and blind the cnut completely then they can turf him out to an old peoples home.

If he is "let out", no doubt that will be an invitation to yer man Brady to try his luck.


If he is "let out", no doubt he will need constant police protection. A worthy cause for a decent man of violence with a known terminal disease?

Citing mental problems to excuse criminality seems to be the "in" thing nowadays.Depression, schizophrenia,mourning for a lost relative,pressures at work,being on the dole are all trotted out as a reason why the full force of the law should not be deployed.Sutcliffe is just in there with the rest of the punters chancing arm as he has nothing to lose.It is of course a nice little earner for the M'learned friends not to mention the tame Psychiatrist trotted out to try and baffle the jury and the beak.
