(Newser)   A man was jailed for three years yesterday over a plan to kill Prince Harry ... but his murder plot was, as the judge put it, "vague and unlikely to succeed" at best, comical at worst   (newser.com) divider line 24

This bastard will be first against the wall when Harry kills his father and brother and takes his rightful place as King.

So the judge gave him exactly what he wanted - three years of free room and board.

I love the little note tacked on to the end seemingly for the sole purpose of making Morrissey look like a tool.

So the guy basically said "Please put me in jail."   And they obliged him,  based solely on a vauge threat that he himself provided to them.  Why didn't the law just say "Aw,  silly buuger.  Run along now.  Come back and see us when you've really done something bad.  There's a good lad"

Yup.  They would have been better served to send him to a mental hospital.

He then hatched his plan: Pose as a tourist, disarm a guard rather than bringing his own gun, and then, well, we'll let him take it from here:
"Aim for target. No civilians to be injured. Dress code is the the biker look," reads a document found on Islam's computer. "Use low-caliber pistol at close range. Not to be viewed as Islamist extremist." (The name of his plot, according to the Mirror? "Operation Regal.")


Comical?  That's not comical, that's Buzzfeed level humor.  "14 ways you know your assassination attempt will fail."  At most.

Now, comical, that would be to have your assassin dress up in as a dingo at a furry con and drop an anvil on the target while he's mid-coitus with a dude in an aardvark fursuit as the band plays 'Yakkedy Sax' in the background.  Yakkedy Sax can make ANYTHING comedy.

Because if he had actually made the attempt, and was either killed immediately by Harry's security detail, or, somehow, against all odds, managed to somehow get the drop on a bodyguard and put a few rounds into him, this little trip to the station house would have been reported, and these cops would have been blamed for it.  Was he really going to make the attempt?  Probably not.  But lone lunatics with a crappy plan and a little luck have pulled off wackier things.

That makes no sense. Either he is a credible threat in which case 3 years is not enough or he is not, in which case 3 years too much.

Why not get the guy some mental health care and call it a day?

Mental hospital.  I guarantee you, he would not ask to go back.

Seems like handing a bank teller a note demanding money would have been simpler.

"Attempted murder," now honestly, did they ever give anyone a Nobel prize for "attempted chemistry?"

And yet not one peep about having to swear under oath that you didn't reduce headcount due to OobamaCare.  At some point, wiberals need to be honest with themselves and this moran that THEY elected TWICE!!!!! Unfarking believable!!!
