Spanish Death Watch

Guess Spain finally got around to convicting those terrorists that blew up that train station.
From Here:

Prosecutors were seeking sentences of up to 38,976 years each for the eight lead defendants — 30 years for each of the people killed in the attacks, 18 years for each of the wounded, plus more time for other terrorism-related charges. But the most time any can spend in jail is 40 years. Spain has no death penalty or life imprisonment.

Is this the same country where a couple hundred thousand died at the hands of their own countrymen not even a hundred years ago? And now they can't even bring themselves to send a mass murderer away for life?

I have a hard time believing that the commoners in Europe are okay with this, but of course as far as the elites are concerned only the little people take the train, so no biggie.
