Quoting ANCFlyer (Reply 2): Is it normal for Spain to allow Rapists out of jail on a "Pass"? If so, I find that rather bizarre! The victim doesn't get a three pass from the traumatic experience?
Our fellow Spanish A.nuts should know about this better than I do, but I think that until a few years back, Spanish penal law was kind of soft on this crap.
If I recall correctly, an ETA's terrorist who killed many innocent Spaniards a decade ago, was condemned to 300 or 400 years in prison. Yet, after only 12 years or so, the bastard has the right to walk out based on some courses he took in prison and similar stuff. The law has changed, but he was convicted under the previous law and therefore he is using it to get out. Spanish society is really upset, especially when this murderer has not showed any regret for what he did.

Quoting StevenUhl777 (Reply 3): Good for her...she's 100% justified in her actions as far as I'm concerned.
Yeah, lets just kill people for everything now.
Quoting Allstarflyer (Reply 7): She's the only person in prison for whom I wouldn't mind my tax money sustaining.
Well, how about you tell your government to stop putting so many people in prison and spending so much of your tax money there??
Personally, I am disgusted by this guy's actions and think what he did, both 7 years ago and now, is dispicable. Still, you don't just go around killing people, that does not solve things. I see this woman was mentally disturbed (as is understandable) and should not go to jail for her actions, but still, you can't just go lighting people on fire.

Living in a country where child molestors usually have more rights than the victims, I can only agree with what NWA742 said. Recent history shows that such SOB's tend to do such actions again after they have been "rehabilitated".

She is obviously mentally disturbed.. But still, this is revenge in it's most justified form (if killing anyone is ever justified, this is moreso than warfare). Hopefully she is not jailed for a significant amount of time which will just cause more grief for the family and once again caused by this one man who should still be doing hard time.

I´m sad that he died. What people like him deserve, is they deserve to suffer and at least they should be condemned not be able to do such again by making "modifications" to his body. But killing? No, I´m not for lynching.
Even if I can understand the mother very much.

Yaaay! Let's just all walk around killing people and potentially killing others! While I'm somewhat glad the man got his Darwin Award, I'm equally disgusted by some of the comments made. Lynch law, why don't we start burning witches while we're at it?
That said, gasoline + air + fire = potential explosion. The people in that bar can thank whoever they believe in that the nutcase mother didn't blow the entire house to pieces. She needs some help, urgently, even though her actions were somewhat more justified than flat-out murder.
Quote: The woman's lawyer, Joaquín Galant, told The Sunday Telegraph last night: "The family has suffered a double tragedy. First the attack on their daughter and now this. Both the father and his daughter would like to express their sadness at the death of Soriano."
very noble reaction on their part

So she followed him into the bar and dumped petrol on him? Who the hell walks around town with a bottle of petrol?
Interesting that the article seems to imply that the mother got her mental illness as a result of the trauma of her daughter's rape. If that's the case, even more good riddance to her killing the bastard. Would be even cooler if killing him somehow enables her to shake off the mental instability, but probably not.
In isolated cases it's okay, but obviously we can't have a society or legal system based on revenge.
Now I am a ardent oppositor to the death penalty, but there are cases were keeping those "people" alive is a crime in itself, for example in Mexico they have upped the crime sentences to 40 to 50 years, and doing the Math (without inflation) the cost of having a guy live the rest of his life in prision is close or over a million dollars (in Mexico) not counting the lost productivity of his victim, the lost productivity of him etc.. Anyways in a country that needs tons of money to make jobs etc (for example jobs that make illegal inmingration to the USA a thing of the past) a country who need money to better the life of the people who OBBEY the rules and Laws its better to spend a bullet and keep the million in your pocket...
