Jail time for killing 6 children?? They should be executed for committing such a horrible act.

They don't do that over there. Kind of a sucky loophole, but that's how it is.

Britain dropped the death penalty in the mid 60s.

This is where vigilante justice is needed. Someone needs to pour gasoline on these ****ers, set them on fire, and let them burn to death. Sick ****s.

whats really low is the bastard had a plan so he could recuse the kids and blame it on his mistress, get custody of the kids.

but it got out of hand. this si why its going down as manslaughter rather than murder

I just don't understand people and the world anymore. So much cruelty and twisted and sick b******s out there. Sickens and saddens me to no end.

Michael Philpott got a life sentence, of which he will serve a minimum of 15 years. That may seem unduly lenient, but the fact is that a parole board will be extremely unlikely to release him. Mrs Justice Thirwall referenced that in her sentencing remarks.

You can read them here, if interested. They give a clearer perspective on the trial than some of the media coverage: http://t.co/HsEWCF8lvh

The result is that he got the same sentence as he would have done if found guilty of murder. He could have been charged with murder, because as the law stands intent is not necessary if you were reckless to an act of which death was a "virtual certainty". I suspect that the prosecution didn't attempt that because there was some evidence that some attempt was made to control the fire, showing an insufficient degree of recklessness.

It is all very depressing.

I guess when you have 17 biological children with 5 different women, their lives don't mean much to you.

Watching the documentary about this was one of the most chilling experiences of my life.....seeing his "act" of being devastated by this tragedy just showed his pure evil at work.

Hopefully the prison guards turn a blind eye to all the beatings he'll receive on the inside.

Well, I don't think there is a suggestion that the fire was meant to spread to where the children were. We know that attempted murder is not beyond him, but I think it was idiocy that killed those children.

No regard for human life, even if he wasn't planning on taking all of them out.

Who knew they would do that before having their first child?

The great genocides of history are the things we know about. It's difficult to assess whether this is an era of particular inter-personal cruelty or callousness. My feeling is that we live in an unusually benevolent time, where sordid crime is simply more likely to be discovered. Modern states are far less harsh in the treatment of their people than many of their historical forebears (look up John of Leiden or Guy Fawkes), and you sense that is a reflection of the general tolerance or enthusiasm for bloodshed of the given era.
