Mass rapist walks away Just reading the BBC news website to get my daily amount of bile foaming before a meeting and came across the story of a man accused of: Instead of being kept in nick awaiting trial he was sent to a bail hostel. My immediate thought was that it was MDN and he had run away to Thailand. Second thought was why way this rather dangerous person allowed bail? If he commits further offences while on the run will any Home Office minion carry the can? Somehow I doubt it. If he had been accused of one count of rape, then I could understand there might be reasons to allow him bail. But 16? Someone should be shot for this (but we all know that there are no consequences for civil servants - just gold plated jobs with platinum coated pensions). Any rozzers/civil service bods care to comment on how common this is and how easy it would be for this rapists lawyer to convince a judge that his client is really a very decent chap and shouldn't spend the next few months in jail? The true face of MDN?
