Is Life Enough ?


Rapist locked up for life is branded danger to women – Portsmouth News.

Alexander Bell is behind bars after being found guilty of robbing and sexually assaulting a woman in her teens in August last year, also for twice raping a woman on the same night in October 2012.

During sentencing Judge Price described Bell as one of the most dangerous men he had seen at Portsmouth Crown Court in 18 years.

At least the sentence reflects the nature of the crime, three concurrent life sentences for a predator who has ruined the lives of the women that he attacked.

Physical wounds may be repaired but the effects of such an assault, on the minds of Bells victims, are immeasurable. One thing is certain these women will carry the memories for the rest of their lives.

The question that springs to mind is “What does “Life” actually mean ?”. Will Alexander Bell be considered for parole at any time ?

Anything less than whole life would be sacrilege, and an insult to those that Bell assaulted.
