I might put a few quid on this one
they are letting him go, but I have a horrible feeling that unless he is monitored 24hrs a day he will soon become a recidivist
Seems the Parole Board for England & Wales are confused about their job aim.
'In sentencing RXG, the judge said he had no choice but to impose a life sentence because it was impossible to say at what point he would no longer pose a threat to society.
'However, because of RXG's age and the fact he pleaded guilty, the judge said he could be considered for release after a minimum of five years.
'After a hearing on Monday, the Parole Board for England and Wales confirmed RXG was suitable for release.
"We can confirm that a panel of the parole board has directed the release of RXG following an oral hearing," a statement said.
"Parole board decisions are solely focused on what risk a prisoner could represent to the public if released and whether that risk is manageable in the community.
"The panel carefully examined a whole range of evidence, including details of the original crime, and any evidence of behaviour change, as well as understood the harm done and impact the crime has had on the victims.
"Parole reviews are undertaken thoroughly and with extreme care.
'The statement added: "Protecting the public is our number one priority."
