That is the view of relatives of murder victim Mohammad Parvaiz as his four killers were caged for at least 80 years.
And the family of the taxi driver killed so brutally in Golcar welcomed the comments made by the trial judge, Dame Heather Steel, who condemned the murder as "savage beyond belief".
The families of the four are believed to be considering appeals.
Mohammed Ramzan, the murdered man's brother-in-law, welcomed the long jail terms.
Speaking exclusively to the Examiner just minutes after seeing four Huddersfield youths receive minimum prison sentences ranging from 17 to 25 years he said: "It feels fantastic.
"It's a brilliant verdict and justice has been done, without a doubt."
Mr Ramzan praised Judge Steel for taking several factors into account before sentencing the four.
These included racial aggravation, the fact that Mr Parvaiz was performing a public service and the public reaction in Huddersfield after the murder.
Mr Ramzan said: "She really hit the nail on the head. She ticked every box."
He also had warm words for prosecutor Adrian Waterman QC, who had faced each of the defendants' barristers in court.
He said: "Mr Waterman has done a fantastic job. It was one against six, but he was a big lion."
Mr Ramzan reacted with anger when killer Michael Hand grinned when he was led away to start his life sentence.
He said: "It's disgusting. People like him will never learn."
And he spoke of his sister Naheed Kausar's pain as she sat through every day of the trial, listening to the details of her husband's murder.
Mr Ramzan said: "My sister found it difficult. We didn't want her to sit through that.
"All her friends and family have come along to support her. They've been brilliant."
Meanwhile, a top police officer condemned the murder as "utterly mindless."
Speaking outside Leeds Crown Court yesterday Det Supt Tim Forber, of West Yorkshire Police, said: "I don't think I've ever come across anything so utterly mindless.
"The court heard evidence that there was a clear level of planning in this offence. It was savage beyond belief. This just wasn't an ordinary event. It wasn't typical of the ordinary type of issues that taxi drivers face.
"This was a premeditated plan, it was a savage attack. It was about a specific intent of retribution." The detective paid tribute to the many young witnesses and eye- witnesses who came forward to give evidence after the killing at Field Head in Golcar last July 22.
He said: "It shocked the entire community.
"I think the length of the sentences we see today reflect the seriousness of the offence.
"As far as Mr Parvaiz's family are concerned the length of the sentences is not going to bring him back.
"The pain still goes on and it always will."
But Det Supt Forber added that the violence witnessed that night was not typical.
He said: "Golcar is a nice quiet area. People there don't expect to see that kind of thing happening."
