Serial Murderer Peter Tobin convicted of third murder, he should forfeit the right to ever be released from prison

Dear All

The Angelika Kluk murder shocked Glasgow and led to the conviction of a man called Peter Tobin.

Tobin had a history of being an evil man, served ten years in prison for a double rape committed in 1993 of two 14 year old schoolgirls who were acting as babysitters for him.

Now, Serial killer Peter Tobin has been jailed for life for murdering 18-year-old Dinah McNicol.

This is his third murder of women and it is the Judge’s recommendation that life should mean life for Tobin.

Judging by his previous actions, it is hard not to disagree with the assessment that Peter Tobin is too dangerous to be allowed by into society.

All his murders have been brutal and premeditated against innocent people.

Judge Mr Justice Calvert-Smith told Tobin;

"This is the third time you have stood in the dock for murder. On all three occasions the evidence against you was overwhelming. Yet even now you refuse to come to terms with your guilt."

Tobin has steadfast refused to co-operate with police and showed no emotion as the jury of nine men and three women returned its unanimous verdict against him.

Tobin is divorced from society completely, rules and values for him don’t exist; he feels no remorse or regret for his actions.

The Tobin case flags up that it was a mistake not to monitor him more closely after his release from prison.

To that extent some of the blame should fall on the authorities who failed to understand the risk Tobin presented.

Dinah McNichol’s father, Ian McNicol, was in court to hear the verdict alongside the father of another of Tobin’s victims, Michael Hamilton.

Dinah McNicol's half-sister Sara Tizard said;

"After all these years, we at last know the truth and justice has prevailed. We would like to put the trial behind us and remember Dinah as the unique and inspiring daughter and sister that she was."

The only problem is that the extended waited caused so much damage.

Yours sincerely

What I cannot understand is this. Why is this man not pleading guilty? Is he so evil and vindictive. He has too make the families suffer or re-live it for his own kicks?

The world creates some cold and empty people. Not just him. It's all over. Just look at your florence article? Highlighting beurocratic coldness and lack of humanity or thought.

Our politicans are barely human, And too suceed in business is to stab multiple folk in the back.Our hero's are all nasty/sleazy and our tv is either violence ,backstabbing or politicians lying.

and we wonder why more and more folk like him are made?

Foundations built on sand.
