The murderer of teacher Anne Maguire has been sentenced to twenty years in prison. Fifteen year old Will Cormack, who was a pupil in Anne's class, has been convicted of her murder & is now in prison (Young Offenders institute or YOI wing in a prison' that is) & will be up for parole review when he is thirty-five; whether or not he is granted parole depends on him showing remorse for his crime. Currently he is showing no remorse whatsoever. The sentencing judge said he could never be released, which will be the case if he still shows no remorse in twenty years time. So the question is this? Should he ever be released? Should he be subject to a whole life tariff? Should he have been sent to prison at all? Should he have been sent to a secure hospital such as Rampton or Broadmoor? If he should not have been sent to prison, but should have been sent to a secure hospital, could he be treated? The main issue is: we don't know the lads history. Was he abused (physically/emotionally/sexually) as a child? If he was abused, then he could have a warped sense of reality & by definition should not have been sent to prison. Obviously he has to be punished but he also needs to be treated. Then of course there is the most important issue: Anne Maguire, his victim & her family & her pupils. Let's not forget them. with a view either for or against?
