Justice/Injustice

A report on the Yahoo News Feed caught my eye. It tells of a policeman attempting to stop a stolen car being hit when the 29 year old banned driver hit his police car and then attempted to run away. The injured policeman got up, chased the thief and Tasered him before collapsing from his own injuries. Follow the link to see this on the Police cameras.

The disgraceful thing is that when this worthless piece of filth appeared in court, the Prosecution had obviously 'plea bargained' to reduce the charge from attempted murder to a lesser charge of "driving dangerously." The Judge handed down a sentence of 23 months ... Is it any wonder crime is paying so well in the UK?

As the comments on the original post showed, many feel as I do about the manner in which criminals are now routinely treated as "victims" and let off lightly. I fully expect to read, at some point, that the Policeman has been disciplined for daring to use his Taser gun.
