life will mean life now - ask michael

9 posts in this topic

Michael Adebolajo has been given a whole-life term and Michael Adebowale has been jailed for a minimum of 45 years for murdering Fusilier Lee Rigby.

Adebolajo, 29, and Adebowale, 22, drove into Fusilier Rigby with a car before hacking him to death in Woolwich, south-east London, in May last year.

The judge, Mr Justice Sweeney, said Adebolajo's was one of those "rare cases" warranting a whole-life term.

The pair were absent during sentencing after a fracas in the dock.

As Mr Justice Sweeney began to sentence the men they started shouting and scuffling with court security guards. They had to be forced to the ground and were removed from court.

Fusilier Rigby's family sobbed as Adebolajo shouted "Allahu Akbar", and Adebowale called out "that's a lie" as the judge told them their extremist views were "a betrayal of Islam".

One relative needed medical treatment after the outbursts. The judge later apologised for the fact that the family had to witness what happened in the dock.Sentencing the killers in their absence, the judge said they had been convicted on "overwhelming" evidence of the "barbaric" murder of Fusilier Rigby.

The British Muslim converts had "butchered" the 25-year-old soldier, he said.

Adebolajo was the leader of the "joint enterprise", the judge said, but Adebowale played his part "enthusiastically".

Mr Justice Sweeney said the pair carried out the murder "in a way that would generate maximum media coverage".

"He had done absolutely nothing to deserve what you did to him", the judge said. The pair created "a bloodbath", he went on.

"You both gloried in what you had done", said the judge.

"Your sickening and pitiful conduct was in stark contrast to the women at the scene who tended to Lee Rigby's body and challenged what you had done."

But if this had been cArried out by an afghan or iraqi , i would fully understand. But not condone.

I respect them for at least choosing a soldier, the judge should have acknoledged this imo

Lee rigby was killer tooo.Doesnt make him any less of a killer because he was doing it a flag

nicely put afgoon

 

i found the timing of the sentencing suspect 

 

like they purposely postponed their sentencing until

 

a court of appeal ruling clarified whether those convicted of the most serious murders could receive sentences meaning that they would never be released.

That ruling came earlier this month and paved the way for a whole-life term to be imposed

what made this murder warrant it more than other murders? people who have killed kids havent received full life, or is this a new thing which will become more common?

 

Yes it was savage and very public but im confused as to what makes this worse than ur average murder? Are they determining that he cannot be rehabilitated and other can? How can they tell that?

 

Im a bit confused by it all i guess i need to read the ruling in detail.

Probably the way he was hacked with a cleaver where the murderer was then filmed giving an explanation of the murder.
