    wow - this is real justice from the world court.

    man - they are tough - I am glad they are in charge of dispensing justice - they should handle all our disputes over here.

    The international court does not issue death penalties.

    17 years for killing 200 people? Wow... that's almost nothing.

    I bet they'll let him out early for good behavior too.

    how can they be international then - they certainly are not representing the wishes of many countries who have death penalties.

    Could you name those countries? There are many more UN member countries that don't have a death penalty than that do.

    No, as is clearly stated in the linked article, it was 17 years for one count of murder, and one count of crimes against humanity. Charges of "extermination of prisoners" were dropped, in a plea agreement similar to what many accused people get in US courts.

    people dont get 17 years for one count of murder..


    like - oh! it was only one count of murder....that is nothing - 17 years and you will be out in 5.. no biggie. we will save your spot on the extermination team - make sure you work out in prison so you can keep the exterminees in line for us when you come back to work.

    would you (all of you who dont think he should get death penalty) feel different if one of your relatives - ie - mother - brother - father -sister was among the 200?

    The sentencing guideline in New York State, as an example, for first degree murder is 15 years to life. Circumstances could bring a death penalty in New York, but it's rare. For second degree murder, an A1 Violent Felony, the range is again 15 to life, but most sentences are less than 20 years. People in the US certainly do get sentences in the area of 17 years for one count of murder.

    As for "out in 5," I don't know if there's a possibility of early parole in this sentence from the World Court... do you?

    In any case, you said in your earlier post "17 years for killing 200 people." I'm correcting that by stating the fact: he was convicted and sentenced for one count of murder, not 200. Just a fact.

    He didn't say that, I did. And if you're correct, that's obsurd. I suppose those others just didn't matter?

    The prison he's going to be locked up in better be pretty damned inhospitable. He's still getting off easy, though.
