Scotland Bomber Released

My hiking buddy asked me what I thought of releasing the convicted Lockerbie, Scotland, bomber, because he is terminally ill with prostate cancer. Although former Libyan secret service agent Abdelbeset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi has maintained his innocence, he was handed a life sentence for murdering 270 people around Christmastime 1988.

My thought? Release him from a jet at 27,000 feet over the Atlantic—100 feet for every person whose life was lost.

But what if he really wasn’t guilty?

  1. He'll be dying a horrible death whether he did it or not. I think someone somewhere already sentenced him.

  2. ... What if the bomber is facing his illness as a sign from God (Allah) that he has done something terrible, for which he must repent.

    Instead of 76 virgins in Paradise, he is going to an eternity in hell?

    Realizing this, and quite accepting that he deserves what's coming to him, the bomber just wants to go home to see his family and friends before beginning is sentence of eternal misery.

    What if?


Tell me what you believe.
