The above is the face of Patricia Gillette, 41, from south London who was imprisoned indefinitely for killing Mar Murphy, 38, at his home in Streatham in August 2006.
She was held in Bethlem Royal Hospital and was on an escorted visit to shops in West Wickham High Street, Bromley, when she escaped on Friday afternoon.
Police described her as "dangerous".
I shake my head in disbelief when I read stories like this. A dangerous criminal, having served just 3 years of an indefinite sentence, is taken shopping?
Just how far do we intend to travel down the road of stupidity? We should ensure the decision makers responsible for permitting this were named, shamed and sacked.
