WE need a full examination into David McGreavy’s release from prison.

The mother of the three children he brutally murdered has been devastated and confused to hear of the early release of McGreavy, who was sentenced to life in prison. The rest of the community also feels strongly.

It doesn’t make sense that someone who could do something so unimaginably evil has been given a second chance and is allowed out in the open to live among innocent people.

Elsie Urry, the mother of his three victims said: “There’s other prisoners that haven’t done half as bad as what he did to my children and they haven’t been put up for parole, so what has made him be able to get parole?”

Despite being banned from Worcester, which is a good thing, no one can think of a single good reason for letting him out at all. Therefore I think it needs to be looked at in detail and I am pleased to hear that MP Robin Walker is making it a priority to find out more.

The man has become known as the monster of Worcester, and the weakness of the reasons given by the parole chiefs - including that the killer has ‘changed considerably’ - are an insult. A document from the Parole Board about McGreavy’s case said: “He has developed self-control, as well as a considerable understanding of the problems that he has had and what caused them.

It added: “The psychologist identified a number of factors which make it less likely that Mr McGreavy will reoffend in future.

“These included his improved self-control and the fact that Mr McGreavy has learnt to remain calm in stressful situations.”

No matter how much a person appears to have ‘changed,’ no prison sentence is too long for someone who did what he did. Can a psychopath truly change anyway? We have all faced stressful situations in our lives but only a true monster would have enough cruelty and evil inside them to commit such a shocking crime.

It does not give anyone any faith in the judicial system that this has been allowed to happen. The only comfort to anyone after his trial was the belief that David McGreavy was to spend the rest of his life behind bars, where he would not be able to hurt anyone ever again.
