Day and daily we hear and read about our justice system. Some days they get it right and some days (well most) they get it wrong. I read two stories in today's Daily Mirror (page 35).
The first was about the charity box thieves who used their tot as a decoy to steal poppy tins. The judge Julian Hall gave a suspended jail term and a supervision order at the court in Oxford.
A former soldier in Lemington Spa (Who served in Ulster and Iraq) snapped when two youths (The PC way to describe two little shits) confronted him with a knife outside his home. He whipped out a machete and told them " That's what you call a knife" he threatened to cut the yobs up. The terrified scum fled (Now there's a surprise) but the former solider admitted using threatening words and behaviour and possessing a knife in public. He was given a four month suspended prison sentence and a 100 hours community service.
Makes you proud of the system....
