Terrorists should be tried in front of military tribunals instead in civilian courts in front of juries.

Perry Wacker gets a 14 year sentence.

Perry Wacker gets a 14 year sentence. For killing attempting to smuggle 60 people into the UK, he was sentenced to 8 years in prison. For killing 58 of them he was sentenced to a further 6 years. He should have gotten the death sentence, or at least life-without-parole. Why was he charged with manslaughter instead of murder?
