Criminals come out on top again

THE sentence of 34 years between three men who tortured an elderly German couple (October 13) is a quintessential example of how rewarding the Irish judicial system is. Surely these thugs should have been handed 34 years each?

The victims are the ones who have received the life sentence. These men will probably leave prison armed with qualifications and loaded with muscle mass. The question has to be asked: who's in charge -- the law or the crooks?
