A Letter of Support

Dear sir or madam,

I would like to send this note as a mark of respect to the victims and the family members of the victims who have suffered so terribly as a result of the Lockerbie bombing. I would like you to know that I myself and the majority of the people in Scotland fully support you in your anguish at the release of the man convicted in court of the Lockerbie bombing. In the opinion of everyone I have discussed this matter with we are all in agreement that this man should not have been released from a Scottish jail. All thoughts of compassion and support must go to the victims of any crime and not to the perpetrators. The decision on whether to release the bomber or to leave him in jail was left to the Scottish Justice Minister. A decision as immense as this should not have been left to one man. To say that his decision to release this man shocked and horrified the whole of Scotland is indeed an understatement.
