    Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe is launching a new legal bid for freedom by claiming his human rights have been breached.
    The 61-year-old will be represented by top lawyer Saimo Chahal, who will argue that the Home Office disregarded his human rights because they failed to fix a tariff for his sentence.

    If the politically correct allow freedom for him, i give in to the idea of vigilantism! :furious::furious::furious:

    I very much doubt that Peter Sutcliffe will ever get released considering how much evidence they have against him. If I remember correctly there were other attacks known to have been carried out by him that he wasn't prosecuted for at the time so he could always be tried for those attacks.

    He was sentenced to twenty life sentences for the murders of 13 women and non fatal attacks on 7 others and eventually diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. His sentence and the whole life tariff was upheld by several successive home secretaries who are politicians and not members of the judiciary & this is part of what seems to be causing the current legal problem.

    Oh, for Pete's sake! When convicted murderers complain about their lack of rights, it really ticks me off. What about the very human right to live that he took from all those women?

    We have a saying here in the Southeastern US that kind of sums up my feelings on his human rights being breached:

    Bless his little heart.

    Read that with a sincere looking smile, and condescension for him and his whining dripping off every word.

    key word: Human

    He isn't human, so this does not apply to him.

    The woman lawyer who wants to FREE the Yorkshire Ripper...because 'his human rights have been breached'

    Saimo Chahal believes the serial killer, now 61, who smashed his victims over the head before mutilating them, has been misrepresented.

    ***

    A profile of Miss Chahal on the firm's website confirms that she acts for Sutcliffe adding: "The Secretary of State is in breach of Article Five of the [European Court of Human Rights] in failing to set a tariff."
    Miss Chahal was named Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year in a 2006 poll for "repeatedly pushing the boundaries of the law on behalf of those with mental illness".


    ***

    Sources said she is confident of securing Sutcliffe's release by 2011.

    How about pushing the boundaries of the law on behalf of victims and their relatives, Saimo Chahal?

    Can someone explain this to me, a tariff is a tax of imported goods. Obviously there is a cultural thing going on here that I'm not getting.

    Certainly. it's a British law term:

    The whole life tariff is a mechanism in British law whereby a prisoner is sentenced to remain in prison until his or her death. It came into force in 1983 when the British Home Secretary began to set minimum terms that convicted killers had to serve before being considered for release on life licence. The intention of a whole life tariff was for a prisoner to spend the whole of his or her life behind bars without ever being released, unless there were exceptional circumstances for a prisoner to go free. These circumstances include good progress in prison or release on compassionate grounds, due to great age or infirmity.

    As this seems to be the only thread unique to the Sutcliffe matter, I'll tack this one on here ("human rights indeed"):

    She never recovered: Woman who survived brutal attack 35 years ago by Yorkshire Ripper dies aged 82

    I'd be surprised if he wasn't responsible for other attacks. Whether any can be proven is a different matter.

    Peter Sutcliffe may well have killed others but he's also carrying the can for at least one other killer. West Yorkshire Police had a terrible reputation for incompetence, corruption and fitting-up easy targets at the time and tried to suppress evidence in order to get Sutcliffe off on an insanity charge (therefore avoiding a trial), in exchange for him admitting to all of the 'official' murders; fortunately the QPS was having none of this, as there wasn't any provision for Plea Bargaining under British Law and it was obvious the Police were just trying to brush the whole thing under the carpet.

    'The Yorkshire Ripper' was really just a bogey man invented by the tabloid media that hid the horrifying true scale of random acts of violence against women in Northern England during that period.
