I am only sorry that the death penalty is not available in the United Kingdom. The Judge recommended a tariff of 18 years, but, surely, in cases such as this, life should mean life. If there is no death penalty, then they should stay in jail until they leave in a coffin.
Let them serve their whole lives in solitary confinement, so they can think about the sub-human acts they’ve committed.
The jury heard that Ms Lancaster was begging the gang to stop beating Robert Maltby, 21, when they turned on her in Stubbylee Park in Bacup, Lancashire.
The 15-year-old, who cannot be named because of his age, denies murder.
Tests indicated she had been kicked and stamped to death, with the pattern of some footwear still on her head.
Ms Lancaster, a gap-year student, died two weeks after the attack in hospital.
Why shouldn’t we be able to name such sub-human scum as this 15 year old? I would hope it would be locked up for life, its whole life, but unfortunately, it will probably end up in a young offenders center for a few years, and be released and able to continue its pathetic life in peace, unlike this poor couple.
