Hackers and Theives get longer in jail than murderers. Should this change?

Hackers and theives are notorious nowadays. In fact it's all anyone tends to hear in the news, and they get long sentences. A con artist/thief stole millions of pounds/dollars and got sentenced to 150 years in Jail. Which obviously he won't ever survive. A man who murdered two children, aged 10, and 12 respectively, got 14 years combined.
Personally this disgusts me and I want to know what everyone else here thinks.
Should Murderers get more time in jail than white collar criminals?
Do you agree that murderers are not receiving long enough sentences?
Are murderers getting too "light" a sentence in comparison to thieves and other such crimes?
