If not sympathy Latimer is at least deserving of empathy. To have gone through what this poor devil has could have been the fate of any of us.
Just because he won't grovel at the feet of the parole board and express remorse they refuse to let him out. I do not believe that he is a saint but neither is he a devil and he is no risk to anybody. 10 years was far and away too much! The National Parole Board releases murders and rapists every day after 1/3 of their sentence and almost always after 2/3 even though there remains great risk to the public. Often these criminals are serving multiple concurrent sentences but as long as they lie and kiss the collective arses of the parole board they walk. It is hard to find words to describe this decision, but the arseholes who made it should be fired!
