That's one heavy check!

This is Britain, so I assume the human abuse involved forced brushing of teeth?
 
2014-02-07 02:45:53 PM
So does the RSPCA consider wives and daughters as pets too? They might want to look deeper into that.

The judge is covering for something.  I bet if you ask him you can find him in his lab later tonight

RSPCA, tell me what it means to me...

Tar and feather that judge!  Stick screwed up though.

"because he was not the sitting magistrate when the facts were heared in court last August, his hands were tied in terms of sentencing. "

He will personally carry it to the RSPCA.

Umm.

"The 44-year-old was given a four-month jail sentence, suspended for three years, and ordered to make at £200 donation to the Grove Hill Animal Rescue Centre in Omagh. "

So....not actually going to jail. At this point anyway.

Today, complaining about light sentences. Tomorrow, complaining about mandatory minimums and an ever increasing "tough on crime" spiral. Make up your mind people!

Really, do they not keep court transcripts there?  Lame-a*s excuse for letting that one get away.

Complaining that judges should have the discretion to fit the punishment to the crime is not incompatible with complaining that a judge has exercised their discretion poorly.

Man, with all this disagreement about what punishments should be and the myriad of different elements that can go into a case it looks like "public opinion" is a pretty crappy indicator of what should happen to someone accused of a crime. They should invent some sort of position where someone very familiar with the law sits down, goes over the case details, and renders a decision. That way we don't have to give a sh*t what The Mob gets up in arms about.

Agreed.  That way, we could ignore like 99.99% of all criminal sentences, and trust that the judge deciding the case probably understood the issues the best.  Instead, we could focus our attention on the occasional news item where it's obvious that the judge's determination was radically off kilter from society's expectations.  I wonder what that would look like.

Sometimes, removing the sole provider is not the best way to deal with a situation.

Because UK judges are even more lenient on sex offenders than US ones?

What would burdening the tax payers achieve?

First the guy would be in prison. Then the exwife and kids would end up on the dole without the child support money.

What good does that do?
Who really gets punished then?
