THE release of a notorious killer who shot dead a German tourist and then savagely attacked his family has been criticised by MSPs as another example of "soft-touch Scotland".
James Boyce, 70, is to be freed after serving 17 years for killing Thomas Boedeker, even after being told that he would be locked up for at least 20. The brutal murder and Boyce's savage attack on the victim's family stunned the quiet community of Cairnryan, near Stranraer.

I will never understand the mentality of any leftist who says this is a good thing.
How does “good behavior” not include the crime for which incarceration was deemed necessary?
Boyce, originally from Rutherglen, near Glasgow, asked to be transferred to Belfast's notorious Maze prison in 2001, as he had hoped to be taken under the wing of members of the Ulster Defence Association.
Leftists blames crimes on the gun. Boyce is considered to be a victim of social oppression.
Understanding leftists is like understanding an amoeba.
