The man who knifed head teacher Philip Lawrence to death has been allowed to stay in the UK after winning an appeal against deportation.BBC news
Learco Chindamo, 26, is serving a life sentence for killing Mr Lawrence outside his school in Maida Vale, north London, in 1995.
Chindamo's lawyers argued that deporting him to Italy, where he was born, would breach his human rights.
What a load of fucking cuntish bollocks. Italy, the symbol of torture world-wide... When will the UK pull out of the "human rights" act which gives murderers and terrorists "rights" to stay in the UK?
Update: Lawrence widow shock at decision
The widow of murdered teacher Philip Lawrence has said she was "utterly devastated" by the decision not to deport her husband's killer.
Frances Lawrence said she had been told Learco Chindamo would be deported to Italy, where his father was from.
The government said it would challenge "robustly" the decision to allow Chindamo, who stabbed Mr Lawrence in 1995 when he was 15, to stay in the UK.
The 26-year-old is serving a life sentence for the 1995 killing.
His lawyers argued that deporting him to Italy, where he was born, would breach his human rights.
Chindamo, who was jailed for life in 1996 with a minimum 12-year term, could be released early next year if the Parole Board decides it is safe to do so.
Justice Secretary Jack Straw has confirmed the government would be taking the case to appeal and told the BBC he would be offering to meet Mrs Lawrence on Tuesday afternoon.
Mrs Lawrence told the BBC's Radio 4 Today programme: "I didn't anticipate that I would feel so utterly devastated as I felt.
"I think that within the confines of the law Mr Chindamo has the same rights as, for instance, my son whose father he killed.
"But what I don't understand and what makes me so depressed is how the Human Rights Act, which was set up... in order to be an exemplar to show how human beings should live together fairly and equally and kindly, and now it's allowed someone who destroyed a life to pick and choose how he wants to live his.
"When we speak of morality, we've only got to utter the word and we're derided.
"And when we speak of the relationship between rights and responsibilities we can be held in contempt. And to me, I see this underlying the growing problem, the plague of knife crime and violent crime."
Of course she's right - robbery at knife point has DOUBLED in within past two years, and only 1 in 10 of those caught with a knife are jailed for it. They need to understand that actions have consequences, serious ones, not a slap on the wrist, so to speak. They need to understand when they commit a terrible crime they LOOSE their rights as they have disregarded their responsibilities.
