3 Cheers for British Justice?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just seen, on Sky news, a 16 year old boy has been sentenced to a MINIMUM of almost 3 years for raping a five year old boy.

    WTF??? I really cannot see the justice in this sentence.

    The little b@rst@rd could well be out within 18 months and be free to do it again.

    Should that not be "3 Jeers for British justice"? :cry:
  3. On Sky news, SKY
  4. A teenage serial sex attacker who raped a five-year-old boy days after being spared a prison sentence for another rape has been jailed for almost three years.The 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to a catalogue of abuse against the boy, including rape and child abduction.

    The attack happened eight days after he was given a three-year community order on June 26 for the rape of a seven-year-old boy in Tameside, Manchester's Minshull Street Crown Court heard.The original sentence handed down by Judge Adrian Smith provoked outcry from the victim's family at the time and a legal challenge.

    WTF :x
  5. I can't quite believe what I'm reading...
  6. Jesus wept.
    At what age does a nonce become suitable for drowning, in order to genuinely protect the public and prevent re-offending?

  7. if this is the same story i've just seen on the BBC news then he is doing at least 18 years, the christian parents of his first victim [ 7 years old] sent the judge a letter asking him to be " corrective " rather than " Punitive " punishments, then he goes and does it again or have I got it wrong here.?
  8. It's 3 years...

  9. Cheers track_link, I'm going to have a hearing test, I could have sworn that's what I heard. wife always says I never listen.!
  10. Not with a minimum of three years, he couldn't. There is a clue in the word 'minimum'.

    The chances of him being released in the next 10 years are somewhat less than me flying to the moon on a paper aeroplane whilst being pleasured by Hayley Westenra and Kirsty Young.

  11. Fair point Ottar, thanks for the clue.
  12. In 10 years he'll be 26.. Ready to re-offend.

    I'd put him on a Trap-Door then pull a lever myself. Job jobbed.
  13. Beggars belief :mad:
    hope he doesn't get the anonymous resettlement option when/if he gets out.
  14. He does not by anychance come from a "underprivileged" upbringing does he? Always a good one for the lawyers to work on!

    Maybe he has "learning difficulties"..again, a great one for layers to get folk off the hook!

    This really does make me mad when you hear of things like this!!
