murder of black teen-ager Stephen Lawrence. Today, Gary Dobson and David Norris, were sentenced to life imprisonment. Britain does not have the death penalty. Nor does life imprisonment mean life here.</p> <p> Most life sentences stipulate a minimum amount of time to be served before a convicted murderer is eligible for parole. Because Dobson and Miller were teen-agers at the time of the murder, their minimum time in jail was set by Mr. Justice Treacy at 15 years and two months. Norris must serve 14 years and three months.</p> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/europa/justice-stephen-lawrence-pt-2" target="_blank">read more</a></p> David Norris death penalty double jeopardy Gary Dobson Home life sentence murder Regions Stephen Lawrence Europe United Kingdom Europa GlobalPost Blogs Wed, 04 Jan 2012 13:53:43 +0000 Michael Goldfarb 5685882 at http://www.globalpost.com Germany: Neo-Nazi murder victims remembered with ceremony, minute's silence http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/europe/germany/120223/germany-neo-nazi-murder-victims-remembered-ceremony-berlin <p> Chancellor Merkel urged Germans to be vigilant against far-right extremism, citing Edmund Burke&#39;s famous warning: &quot;All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.&quot;</p> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/europe/germany/120223/germany-neo-nazi-murder-victims-remembered-ceremony-berlin" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Angela Merkel Greece murder Nazis racism World Leaders Germany Turkey Thu, 23 Feb 2012 11:43:00 +0000 Jessica Phelan 5693094 at http://www.globalpost.com Baader-Meinhof gang member Verena Becker jailed for 1977 murder of prosecutor http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/europe/germany/120706/baader-meinhof-gang-verena-becker-jailed-murder-siegfried-buback Verena Becker was convicted as an accessory to the murder.
