I cannot begin to imagine what his poor mother and father must feel. At the time of the Moors murders I was living in England and there was the way they played with the families. At least they were locked up and kept there until they expired. What Senator Marie-Louise O'Donnell is trying to do is allow judges to state this guy or woman should not go before a parole board for X number of years. At least it would give some certainty. I agree with Senator Bacik that we need to go back and visit this and come up with a more determined and certain system in the very near future.
