NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) –A federal judge in Manhattan ordered a “compassionate release” Tuesday from prison for a dying former civil rights lawyer.

The U.S. government requested the release earlier in the day for Lynne Stewart, who was convicted in a terrorism case from prison. Prosecutors say Stewart, 74, suffers from recurrent stage-four breast cancer. She was not scheduled to be released until August 2018.

Stage 4 is not dying. It depends on the type of cancer. This simply means that it has spread outside of its initial area, but not necessarily that it has metastasized.

They’re just letting the evil anti-American nutcase out because the new anti-Semitic mayor likes her politics.

I did a quick double-check, and I was right. The judge that ordered her release is the same one that initially was only going to give Stewart 28 months in prison, instead of the 30 years prosecutors asked for.

Koetl's notable decisions

So, color me not at all shocked that the terrorist enabling witch was released.

You're talking about the Obama administration. They very well might. They might even put him in PJs to do an Obamacare ad.

The left is so compassionate to the criminals aren’t they? If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime. Unless you are a rat supporter, then it’s a free-for-all!

Rot in hell...aiding the enemy. There should have been a firing squad. Sometimes our justice system doesn’t do the job.

So, she conspired with the radical, “Blind Shiek,” the guy that tried to bring down the WTC tower back in 1993, was found guilty, and now we are going to release her because she is dying from cancer?

IMHO, we were compassionate already because we did not fry her, hang her, or put her in front of a firing squad like she deserved.

Sounds like when the UK released Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the guy that brought down Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, because he had cancer and was supposed to die any moment...then went home to a hero’s welcome and lived another three years.

We have the enemy within the gates.

They shouldn’t break precedent .... they should release her in Libya to loving friends, fellow Muslims and co-conspirators.

Taken a page from the Scottish law on compassion aka the Lockerbee bomber. Their compassion is worth more than others compassion.
