Papal Irony

In an ironic twist of fate Mehmet Ali Agca, otherwise known as "the man who almost assassinated John Paul II in 1981" has been denied a "short compassionate release" by the Turkish government to attend the Pope's funeral. While obviously mentally unstable Mehmet was forgiven by the Pope a mere two years after the attack, and they had come to view each-other as spiritual brothers over the years.
It might seems odd to consider, but what's wrong with letting an attempted assassin attend the funeral of his would-be victim? It's not like he can do any worse than has already been done, nature beat him to it.
