Royal Marine (87) 2.....untreated sewage 0
The tragedy of this gentlemans death is precisely that.....however....the sewage clearly made a serious error by picking on a former Royal Marine from a different generation.....and for all the slating they get, the CPS came up with a winner to boot....
I think it's fair to say the former Marine won.... 2-0
It's a shame the current justice system does not allow the sewage to be socially introduced to currently serving Marines, somewhere rural for example, where they could demonstrate to said Marines their, erm, "prowess" as it were.......based on their encounter with the gentleman whom they felt was an easy target due to his age....
The legal systems in the whole of the UK, and elsewhere, are desperately in need of overhaul. Acts like these require radically different sentencing. A return to the death penalty, or a life sentence becoming just that, is way overdue. Life has become so cheap this is the only way forward.
Huggy Fluffs will never allow the return of Capital Punishment for the most heinous crimes because "it's inhumane (to someone who carried out an inhumane act). He can change"
Huggy Fluffs will never allow "life means life" sentences because "people can change"
Huggy Fluffs will not allow prisons to become real places for punishment because "these poor, misguided, people need to be rehabilitated, not punished. It's against their rights to be punished (even though they cared not even on microgram of jot about the rights of their victims)".
Huggy Fluffs will not allow any sort of real punishment like Corporal Punishment or Hard Labour because (see above).
Huggy Fluffs will not allow the necessary expansion of the prison system as that would mean that their ideas don't work (see levels of re-offending) as well as (see above)
My niece studied psychology and was much given to explaining and excusing bad behaviour. She then became a police officer. Rather less than a year of actually dealing with criminals and the mayhem which they wreak produced a young lady of PPRuNe opinions who now accepted that some people need a good spanking and incarceration.
I remember reading a few years ago about some pond life who broke into a house and decided to give the elderly occupant an bit of a hard time just to break up the boredom of a simple buglary.
This was where it all went wrong for the poor mis-understood, needs to be reformed little loves. Said elderly gentlemen had been one of "Stirlings originals" and proceeded to show then how the SAS deal with such situations. Poetic justice at its finest!!
Now to make life simple for the judiciary, every crime carried a maximum sentence, simply pass one act that makes this a minimum sentence, and every re offence earns double the last sentence the scum got. Then make prison somewhere they dont want to go. No TV, no gym, just 12 hours of hard work 7 days a week. That should sort them out pretty quick!!! I could go on but I am mindful that the liberals are in some sort of power at the moment and I dont want the PC brigade calling round!!!
I know this subject has been done here before .... but what in the UK would be a home owners defensive weapon of choice, given the UK gun laws? My family live in a low crime area, but in a very remote location, hence the query....
I can't remember if it was last year or the year before. I saw it in the Arizona Republic. It's not that uncommon judging by the stories across the nation in San Diego Union-Tribune - there was a woman died in a lockup because of heat - I can't remember where. It was in last week's paper. Still, the DEA in San Diego forget for 5 days that they've locked somebody up. Hopefully his kidney damage won't be permanent.
