For the crime boffins amongst us, here's the story of Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo at Crime Library:
WARNING: The story of these two characters is pretty graphic. Although not showing any photos in that story, it's pretty sick stuff so watch out or don't read the article if that stuff disturbs you.
Read that and then answer; should Homolka have been released?
Personally, no. I've read the Crime Library version as well as the 300 page criminological and legal analysis of their crimes and I think although somewhat under the spell of her husband, she was almost as sick as he was and although maybe less of a danger these days, 12 years was a manifestly inadequate sentence for such horrific crimes.
So what does everyone think?
