System failed murdered pensioner…

MURDERING rapist Trevor Hamilton has become the first convict in Northern Ireland to be told he will never be released from prison. Some comfort, perhaps, to the heartbroken Harron family, who conducted themselves with dignity throughout their ordeal. They were badly let down by serious failures in the system to monitor a devious and sexually violent man released into the community half-way through a sentence for rape, known to be likely to re-offend and an obvious danger to women. The Government has promised to act, but for the Harron’s, it’s too little, too late.
