A cannabis user who stabbed his girlfriend to death after becoming convinced she was part of a plot to kill him has been jailed for murder.

...

Middlebrook denied murder claiming he was mentally ill, but the court heard his illness was self-inflicted.

He was given a life term and ordered to serve a minimum of 13 years.
Given all the stupid arrests and judgements we usually post on here, I thought it was time you all got off the Outrage Bus, stretched your legs and took in a bit of fresh air.

In all honesty, I'd have expected this to end up in a not-guilty verdict, a reduced charge or a mitigated sentence almost certainly in the comfort of a psych ward and followed by a healthy benefits allowance upon early release.

There was no such nonsense from the judge, however. Michael Heath, I salute you! Nice to see a bit of common now and then.

Will a film be shown on-board? If so count me in :)
Not only a film but also a toilet and a selection of hot drinks and biscuits. Baggsy the Jammy Dodgers

Note sentenced to live but minimum 13years! Not really life is it!
We don't have the death penalty here....yet :)
But the bus is showing "Top Gun" so thats OK. I do so love the locker room scene....
If you're sentenced to live do you get done if you die before the end of your sentence?

I believe that's the case......then they hang you as punishment.

Think I'll stay on the Outrage Bus with the Horror Boxes until after the inevitable appeal where he'll probably be let off and given compensation for being victimised, and to have the blood washed out of his clothes.


Has anyone got anything to read? All they have to watch on this bus are reruns of Dempsey and Makepeace :(
