They call it Criminal 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. My mind boggles at this - not exactly a deterrent to any other like-minded teenage thugs....

    And Sudbury Open Prison is a standing joke anyway....they lose, IIRC, about a prisoner a week on average

    What happened to "deterrent", "punishment fits the crime" and other tennets of natural justice?
  2. My victim impact statement would go along the lines of " Your going to spend the rest of your days looking over your shoulder. My purpose in life is to have you gaffa taped to a metal chair with your bAlls soaked in lighter fluid and me with a industrial sized blow torch. That is after i have broke both your femurs so i can hear you scream when i rotate your legs to eyewatering angles. Im not intested in your apologies.
    It may not be today, next week or next month but i will have my pound of flesh. I know what you look like. Youll go mad constantly watching your back and not knowing if the next knock on the door is me. thanks for your time!.
    Its like the killers of jamie bulger, short sentence, news blackout and then relocated with new identities. Wheres the deterent if you can start your life all over again without anybody knowing what you had done.
  3. I totally agree but in this fine country of ours you would get a longer sentence for the threatening behaviour than he did for the murder. Its only fair after all, you shouldnt be able to just tell him what you think and what you would like to do, it could seriously upset the young chap! But you could explain how sorry you are for the time he spent in prison as a result of your son being in the wrong place at the wrong time, tsk tsk. If you apologise strongly enough you may get away without him sue-ing you for allowing the boy out in public so he could be murdered.

    Ill hold that blowtorch for you and help with the leg twisting bit!
  4. I certainly wouldn't need to look to Mr Tarantino for any ideas on what I'd do to him if it was my kid. He would be looking forward to a long, painful and particularly gruesome demise. Surely this kind of thing cannot be good for the victims family having to relive all the heartache after so many years of coming to terms with it.
  5. So life is 9 years now !!!
  6. That's the price of a life in the wonderful socialist utopia of Comrade Gordon and his bunch of waster ministers,including that useless Home Secretary.

    Now if he had been done for tax evasion or racial harassment,it would be something like a deterrent sentence.

    No a life is far cheaper than that. This summer, iin Darlington, a very decent bloke refused someone who was trying to cadge a cigarette off him and got punched so hard he died in hospital a few weeks later. The guy who did it copped a plea for manslaughter and got 18 months. Thats less than a year with full parole. The man who punched him has a long history of violence. And dont forget the time he did in remand... so the scumbag will be out of prison by Easter.
