    Ah I see, yes anything is possible

    Newcastle Crown Court going bloody soft on criminals (_;)

    I really, and I mean I really do not mean to demean the situation with the NHS at the present time but the fact is the only thing more overcrowded than our hospitals, are our prisons. As its stands our current system of law is (with the exception of a few heinous crimes) you can do what you like as long as you pay a fee for it.

    Feeling sorry for all of those laying on a thin blue pvc mattress still drunk out of their skulls in Police custody in England right now. NOT

    PMSL at the lot of the idiots.

    The whole of the UK is bloody soft on criminals

    And when criminals do get locked up because "we" have to abide by Human Rights prison doesn't actually become a deterrent.

    I wait for the time when being convicted and given a custodial sentence means you lose any rights other than the right to life all (or most) other rights should be rescinded because "you" chose to commit a crime

    Then hopefully the figures on the link will reduce dramatically

    The prosecution can appeal in very limited circumstances through the Attorney General for an unduly lenient sentence but this sentence seems pretty average, shocking, unfair but a reflection of the current state of the justice system it seems.

    i do not know if it is true evrywhere but around here it never ceases to amaze me how many of these offenders have suddenly got offers of jobs or college places or are carers of sick mothers. Equally many have a criminal past but have turned their lives around and have an unblemished record for the last two and a half weeks and have a baby on the way. Have I missed anything else of the barristers tick list?

    Is it possible some of the judges took bribes or were coerced ?

    One day it will be the leader of Hamas in a court, then Netanyahu in a court, being tried for war crimes against humanity. I hope the judges aren't soft on that day!

    when criminals leave prison they should never want to go back. But seems they get Xbox and anything else they want. so when back out everything is worth the risk, most likely they will get away with it and if not back to 3 meals a day and Xbox.

    Before making a complaint, I would make sure I had all the relevant information. Are you relying solely on the Sun for your information or have you read the court transcripts and come to your own conclusion from that?

    I'm not saying the judge is right or wrong, I'm just saying the Sun will portray a story in whichever manner makes the best/most shocking headline.

    A case like this will always grab attention but the reality is people walk from courts everyday even after killing someone without reading the court transcripts we will never know why. Mental illness perhaps could be one of the reasons

    his remorse ? hes not

    The whole system is broken. By default you only serve half your sentence, there's no such thing as a reduction for good behaviour (which in itself is insane), it's actually that you serve half and only do it all for bad behaviour.

    The fact you can have concurrent sentences says it all. I can't go to work for a week and say I did three weeks at the same time, it's another case of rewarding the worst of society.
