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.

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.

I had thought that treason was a capital offense. Why is this woman still breathing air?
