Yet again the (In)Human Rights Act strikes again

I don't know how many times this has been asked, but why is a criminals human rights above that of the law abiding citizen of this country.

Here is a headline to an article in the Telegraph.

Killer can't be deported because he might kill again

An Iraqi immigrant who stabbed two doctors to death has won the right to stay in Britain after a judge ruled that he would pose a danger to the public in his homeland.

What about the danger to the public of this country?

A quote from the article;

An immigration tribunal decided that Laith Alani, a paranoid schizophrenic, should not be deported to Iraq because it would breach his human rights and put people there at risk.

Alani has spent the past 19 years in a secure hospital after he killed two NHS consultants in a frenzied attack because he believed he had received a "command from Allah".

The Home Office wanted to deport him on his release to protect the British public, but he appealed to the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT) where a panel led by Lance Waumsley, a senior immigration judge, ruled that he could remain in the UK.

Another quote;

The case comes after The Sunday Telegraph revealed how the AIT regularly overturns attempts by the Home Office to deport foreign criminals at the end of their sentences.

Last year this newspaper disclosed how dangerous offenders from overseas, including killers and paedophiles, had used the Human Rights Act to avoid deportation despite a pledge by Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister, to remove any foreigner who breaks the law.

Mr Brown said in 2007 that foreigners must "play by the rules or face the consequences", adding: "If you commit a crime you will be deported from our country."

Is the UK becoming the dumping ground for the criminals of foreign countries?

Do they come here with a clean slate to commit crimes and when they are caught and they face deportation they come out with the (in) human rights act, saying they will in danger if they are sent back.

Just how many immigrants, who have committed crimes in the UK, aren't deported due to the (in)human rights act. We have enough trouble with the criminals we already have let alone other countries criminals.

Rant now over.
