Everytime i hear about Ronnie Biggs being spoken about on the news - it makes me sick the way he is always referred to as the "great" train robber.

There is nothing "great" about him whatsoever.

He was part of the gang who left the train driver fighting for his life & stuck 2 fingers up to justice for about 30 years or so

He only came back here when he wanted to use our health service.

 

 

(feel better for that now lol)

I understand how u feel Mr Ton but could u explain to me how come it should be fair that the dangerous criminal that jack straw basically branded him should be allowed to live like that in prison.

 

He is not as dangerous as Jack Straw made out as he cant walk, due to fall in prison which broke his hip, cant talk, cant use the toilet, cant feed himself. He was needing round the clock care that was costing the goverment a lot of money for 4 personal nurses to care for just him.

 

Iam not saying he should not server his time but the goverment could use the space for a more dangerous criminal like a murderer.

 

Also u said they left a train driver fighting for his life. Ronnie was in the get away vichile some 15 minute away from the train so really he had nothing to do with that part.

 

A friend of mine Works at norwivh prison as a officer. He is a lovely bloke and has at times been one of the guards posted to watch biggs. He along with a few of his collegues thing that the Goverment were wrong in making the decision they did last month as its not like he is dangerous and if they were wanting supports of there personal crusade to keep him in prison then they have lost a lot of supporters. if he was that dangerous then maybe he should have been kept in belmarsh not moved to Norwich.

 

I for one am glad he has been released from his sentance as i dont feel it is fair on ANYBODY who is that ill to go threw there dying days like that.

 

Oh and Mr ton thanks u have reminded me to ring my mum. Shes in Norwich Not far from the prison.

I don`t have a problem with it myself. There are far worse people free in the world. than him.

 

He may be a train robber, but at the time, it was the biggest (greatest) and he got away with it. Good on him, I say. At least, unlike nowadays he doesn`t hide in some office building, working for Lloyds TSB, taking hundreds of pounds off you each month. At least he showed his face while robbing the train, instead of hiding behind a telephone.

 

I don`t beleive he ever hurt anyone, so I can`t see the point in locking him away until he dies. The goverment just want him, to say `we`ve finally got you`.

 

If you could rob a bank and get away with it for 30+ years, wouldn`t you take your chances? I think I would. Pedo`s, rapists, murderers, granny beaters, smack heads, and everyone else get less time that they wanted him to serve.

The train driver acatually died 1 year and 1 week AFTER the robbery so this could not be a murder charge.

 

Prisons are full of old people who are seriously/mentally ill and costing the tax payers a lot of money to keep them there. The Minister for Justice ought to look at this huge problem and come up with alternatives in order for places to be freed to house people convicted of knife/gun crime

The fact that he is being constantly called the "great" train robber is just rediculous...there's nothing great about him :confused:

Would this not refer to the scale of the robbery for it's time, rather than the robbers themselves?

but as the news keeps reminding us, especially the stuff i have heard, he was not at the train he was 15 minutes away so techinaclly he did not rob the train.

 

NP yes there are far worse ppl in this world that need locking up they were just trying to make a example out of him because he was part of the gang that robbed a train and evaded capture then got caught and convicted then escaped and shew 2 fingers to the authorities for over 30 years.

 

i personally hope his release helps the local area where i live as everyone who is convicted of a crime in norfolk and north soffolk gets sent to Norwich prision. which if the guy come from near me is one less for me to be worrying about and will mean that the useless police force i have experiance may actually be doing there job for a change.

Yup and besides there have been many many bigger crimes than this these days for which they get life and are out in 10-15 yrs.

 

In ronnies case the the crime just does not fit the penalty

I`m suprised they haven`t locked up all CAG members who dispute their CCA`s yet, for attempted fraud, or some nonsense like that. You`d get 15 year`s, yet a baby killer would be out a week on Thursday, with good behaviour.

 

Whatever people think of the likes of Biggs, people like Biggs have left their mark in History. It would be a truly boring world if everything was hunky dory. We need people like that from time to time, to cause a stink and a bit of inconvenience.

 

That`s what I think anyway.

Well, a cynic might say the reason he came back was due to his poor health, and to waste resources on his health care, that he had not paid tax or contributed to in any meaningful way.

 

Personally I don't think he should be glorified as a hero or condemned as a villain. Just leave him and his family in peace. I don't think he particularly benefits from being "free", but his family probably appreciate it, and they've committed no crime.

Again, I`m not saying they are hero`s of any sort.

 

I saying the magnitude of the crime at that time was `great`. To pull it off and hide away for 30+ years takes some intelligence. There have probably been, and will be bigger crimes since those days.

 

I`m also saying that it`s a total waste of prison space, guards, tax payers money and whatever else to lock up a guy of this age for the rest of his life, simply because the powers that be are embarrassed about him evading capture for so long.

 

He may have lived a life of luxury for 30+ years, but in a way has been a prisoner of his own, never able to return to see his family, until now.

 

As to him being a dangerous criminal, well, lets not be silly here. Not all crooks pan your head in or kill you. My bank manager robs me from miles away, and I`ve never seen his face once.
