Finsbury Park attacker jailed for life: Darren Osborne to serve at least 43 years after ploughing van into Muslims

He will die inside, unless he gets an uncorrupt lawyer to mount an appeal, and that appeal be successful. From the Telegraph.

Osborne stood with his hands crossed in front of him as sentence was passed by Mrs Justice Cheema-Grubb.

She told him: “This was a terrorist attack. You intended to kill. Your mindset became one of malevolent hatred.

“In short you allowed your mind to be poisoned by those who claimed to be leaders.”

After the 48-year-old was effectively told he would die in jail, he said: “God bless you, thank you.”

The judge also paid tribute to Mohammed Mahmoud, the Imam from the local Muslim Welfare House, who prevented the angry crowd from harming Osborne after the attack.

She said: “This was a demonstration of true leadership. His behaviour throws into sharp relief the bile spewed out on-line from those who aspire to lead the haters.

“Not because his exhortation to desist from punishing the perpetrator was remarkable but because he had the strength of character to do the right thing under pressure.

“He chose to respond to evil with good. His response should be everyone’s response whether it is to the evil of child grooming and abuse in Rochdale or the evil of terrorist atrocities in our cities.”
