      I agree, all criminals should pay their due, the problem is if the people at the top get away with it, why should anyone be scared of the law. They will be out soon and be doing exactly the same. Hopefully next time they burn an anc building, that should keep them away for a while.

    Now the taxpayers money will be used to treat them while hundreds of lawabiding people die of diseases which could be treated in hospitals.

    Rather let them suffer from septicaemia and then die. Sounds like there was quite a bit of shooting and crashing, to boot, so would the rightful owner of the want it back? Shoot to kill responsibly.
