Feeble justice

Two sentenced to life in prison for stabbing French students to death | UK news | guardian.co.uk: "Sonnex will serve a minimum of 40 years and Farmer a minimum of 35. Trial judge Mr Justice Saunders told the Old Bailey the pair had only escaped being jailed for the 'truly horrific' murders for the rest of their lives because of their young ages."

What do you have to do to get a whole life sentence? Can you believe the judge still shows consideration for these murderers? The judge should serve the difference when they come out if he's alive at the time, which by the way is unlikely; so he doesn't even suffer the societal consequences of this feeble, insult of a sentence.
