Head teacher murderer allowed to stay in UK

The man who knifed head teacher Philip Lawrence to death has been allowed to stay in the UK after winning an appeal against deportation.

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.

    why does him being an immigrant have anything to do with his crime? Is he the only muderer in all the history of England? Why should he be treated any diffrent? did he kill for any political or religious reasons? He is young, which is not an excuse... but his family and everything he knows as home is not Italian no matter what his passport says.

    Eh? It doesnt have fuck all! But why should he remain in the country if he commits murder? Obviously we cant deport home grown murderers. But why should I as a tax payer have to contribute to the several thousand pounds a week fee it is too keep a murderer in one of our jails?

    And, for the love of god, how does deportation to Italy breach his human rights? What rights would they be?

    He was six when he was brought by his parents ... not his fault he is an immigrant.
    .... No you cant deport home grown criminals? But why wouldnt a country demand you serve your punishment inside the place you comminted the crime? and what makes him anymore of a threat than other relesed youth? I said, hes not a political or religious fanatic? Unless you think the entire family should be deported after ..... maybe its their fault he murdered. But then what of the other muderers and their families? and why stop at murder?
    sorry about your tax dollars.... maybe to save money you should disposing of some.

    "Why should he be treated any diffrent?"

    Because he IS different. He is foreign and has no legal right to live here, regardless of whether he murders the locals.

    " did he kill for any political or religious reasons?"

    Yes. Murdering folk to establish power over society is the ultimate political rationale. That's why journalists, trade unionists, clergy, and teachers are targetted by thugs. Funny how they so rarely target other thugs.

    "He is young, which is not an excuse."

    So why the hell did you mention it then? Was it because you hope that to some readers, youth is regarded as an excuse for homicide? Do you get to reap the benefits of that statement without having to publicly sanction it?

    How is he difrent other than his place of birth? I wont argue he has any "legal" rights I think thats why it was a "human rights" issue...for no other reason than as I stated he was 6 when he moved to london and is now what 26? in what way is he Italian? other than its what his passport says? his home and family are in england, are they criminals too? Deport adult drug dealers! adult murders! etc... even youth!, but one thats been raised there for 20 years cant really be called "foreign"? I didnt know anything about the story until this post, so I had to go back, it was gang violence so I dont see how you can feel the teacher was "targeted"? I cant say anything of the boy Mr. Lawrence was protecting, as he was only 13 at the time...but he has now a criminal record of his own..... knives guns drugs robbery...

    "Murdering folk to establish power over society is the ultimate political rationale"

    When the world hates you - you tend to hate it back.

    what are we arguing here? the isolated article? youth? or crime in general?
    Im sorry I do not put blame on children, for the failings of society. so I changed my mind youth is an excuse to do stupid things - not in a makes it right way, Im not completly mental... there was study done on the worlds youth where the netherlands ranked top...and it is because they are a youth focused and centered society. KIDS rule there, as a whole not individualy and futher looking I found many many difrences in the culture, like they arent so materialistic, judgmental, status and "goal" driven. They just live!! and actually they rank equally in the things we call "problems"... like single parents, and mothers that stay home instead of chasing carreres... they just dont call it a problem, and yet they have less of the real problems we do.

    from a few years ago but since the above study is new... doubt much has changed.
    thought this was an interesting summary...
    "These statistics evoke two common responses from conservatives and libertarians. The most natural response is to blame them on 40 years of Democratic government. This, however, is a giant non sequitur. The very point of this list is that nations with far more liberal governments than ours have created better societies, even with somewhat less productivity. If liberalism were really harmful to a nation's standard of living, then these nations should be doing worse, not better."

    Most "crime" comes from oppression of some sort or repressive restrictions ... and I think the youth of today are a reflection of that and they will continue to act out. Yes there needs to be laws and punishments.... but
    take away guns ... they will stab each other ... take away knives...they get a ball bat ....

    "Most "crime" comes from oppression of some sort or repressive restrictions"

    Nonsense, crime comes from the psyche of the criminal. It comes from the greed which craves all the thrills and spoils of the criminal life, without any work or duty or responsibility. Most young thugs only know oppression when they inflict it upon their victims. This creep is going to strike again, and another life will be lost.
    More than anything else, civilised society is a pact, held together by a stick and a carrot. A bargain between the individual members promises a degree of safety, security and liberty, in return for law abiding conduct. Why should anyone reap the dividend without chipping in? Why should you pay the market price for a loaf of bread if someone else can just steal it with impunity? And when they charge you double to cover their losses, who is being oppressed now?
