Free Ronnie Biggs
The sentences handed down to the Great Train Robbers were harsh even for the time, and only so because the whole thing had made the Police look silly. If Biggs had been convicted of murder nine years, then he would have been out by now. That fact is perfectly scandalous, but it is also undeniable. Instead of keeping an extremely ill old robber locked up, how about properly preventing, properly pursuing and properly punishing real threats to the public?
