Charlie Hebdo Had Been Arrested, But Released

It is emerging that the Muslim radicals that killed Charle Hebdo journalists had been arrested but were released due to weak laws in France that were written by shortsighted human rights activists.
Cherif Kouachi, who is now 32, was sentenced to 18 months in prison after being convicted of terrorism charges in 2008 for helping funnel fighters to Iraq’s insurgency. He said he was outraged at the torture of Iraqi inmates at the
U.S. prison at Abu Ghraib near Baghdad.
In March 2012, French police faced criticism after 23-year-old Mohammed Merah killed seven people, including three soldiers and four people at a Jewish School in the Toulouse area. Merah, a petty criminal, had been questioned after he returned from Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2011. He was killed in a shootout with police
In short, French laws, just like the Kenyan laws are not strong enough to deal with terrorism. The US on the other hand has not given the Boston Bomber any breathing space. In fact they want the death penalty revived specifically for the bomber.
