Mob Deep

So, some US bloggers are trying to start a boycott of Scotland for releasing a man in his last few weeks of death I see. How forgiving of them! And the head of the FBI, writing an open letter to the world, criticising a sovereign coutries internal politics. How diplomatic.

Terrorism is wrong, killing people is wrong.. obviously. But compassion is always a good thing and we should be proud when it is shown even to murderers. Now, this "hero's welcome" in Libya isn't a great thing, but then lots of people are over-proud nationalist dicks: I notice they've popped out of the woodwork in a few countries regarding this story.

I really hope that the internet isn't representative. I like to think that the kind of people who get so worked up they have to complain are probably not normal. But they are noisy!

"The sort of justice that favours the mass murderer above the victims families is sick, sick, sick.

Can't wait until we can vote all these filthy cowardly politicians out of office.
We need proper justice in this country again
."

I think I know what "proper justice" means. Angry, retributional mob justice that pleases the bloodthirsty. We don't need to be like that, the middle ages were a long time ago and we are supposed to be better now. The rightious right are a funny lot - I thought they were supposed to be God fearing Christians, but they seem to believe in the barbaric values that their saviour, a Mr Jesus, definitely argued repeatedly against. There is no "except terrorists" in his philosphy of how we should act. It's one of they few things I like about any religion.

So, angry mob, please fuck off and grow up.
