PC Andrew Harper: Attorney General to review killers' sentences...

Because they are watching everyone on this site, so it's wise to have an alibi.
Who is 'they'?
  1. Aliens
  2. Russians
  3. MI5 / MI6 / CI5 (George Cowley’s lot) / GCHQ
  4. Mrs Miggins & her bezzer Sweeney Todd
  5. Other (please specify)
Why do you need an alibi? What will happen if you didn’t have said alibi?
 
They deliberately dragged a man over 1.4 miles of tarmac. Have a little think about how much (or little) of him would have been left after that.

******* horrible way to go.

A police officer who was dragged behind a car sustained such severe injuries one of his colleagues "could not recognise him", a court has heard.

You mean your parole officer? What have you done or looked at online that is cause for concern for the authorities?.
The authorities on here are the moderators. They watch every post. They look for signs of any deviation from correct opinions. That's their job. How else did they get to be moderators?

Presumably the convicts were in the process of a crime(s) other than manslaughter. Would it not be possible for that/those to be tested in court and then have the sentences run consecutively? Or re-arrest on release, and then tried for the remainder of the offences? (Though time might make that difficult of course).

Already sentenced for the other offences with which they were charged (and admitted thus reducing that part of the sentence). Long entered a guilty plea an earlier point than the other two and thus received a greater discount on his Conspiracy to Steal sentence.

Henry Long:
  • Manslaughter - 16 years in prison (minimum 10y8m)
  • Conspiracy to steal = 32 months in prison to run concurrently
  • Driving offences = twelve years disqualification
Albert Bowers & Jessie Cole
  • Manslaughter - 13 years in prison (minimum 8y8m)
  • Conspiracy to steal = 38 months in prison to run concurrently
  • Driving offences = twelve years disqualification
Thomas King
  • Conspiracy to steal = 24 months in prison less 157 days of qualifying time on curfew.
See pages 8, 9 & 10

Oh well, too late then . . . . I am always a bit mystified when sentences are run concurrently -- are they supposed to lock the door twice or something?

Its to do with overall proportionality or something.

I was just looking at a particularly unpleasant American double murder case with five defendants (brought up in the BBC thread)... Proper sentencing indeed.

  • Lemaricus Davidson was handed four death sentences (lethal injection) for his part.
  • Letalvis Cobbins and George Thomas were both sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
  • Vanessa Coleman has been convicted of facilitating the crimes and sentenced to 53 years in prison.
  • Eric Dewayne Boyd was convicted of federal charges as accessory after the fact to carjacking and sentenced to 18 years in prison.
