Lenient sentencing

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/mum-caught-cctv-glassing-teacher-27630498?int_source=nba

Yet another example of what is now almost ubiquitous— a defendant being given a pathetically weak sentence (in this case, a suspended term of imprisonment plus a fine and a couple of add-ons) despite having deliberately pushed a glass into a woman’s face, leaving her traumatized and with permanent scars.

The courts have to get a lot tougher on crimes of violence.

Life (existence?) in a multikulti society.

This episode shows (confirms) that Liz Truss is completely idiotic, has no real idea even now how the British state is run, and has no serious ideas, ideas that are thought out properly.

I doubt that her evident incompetence will much affect her chances of taking over the Conservative Party leadership, though. After all, the same people (Conservative Party members) elected Boris-idiot as their leader a few years ago; he also was incompetent and had no serious ideas.

The UK is in the same position, more or less. Only a small minority of the “blacks and browns” are really of any use whatever. Many, perhaps a majority, while not being very criminal or dangerous, are basically useless, and are a dead weight, a millstone round the neck of the British people. Another minority are actively criminal and/or terroristic.

Looks like a reasonably good neighbourhood. Surely children should not be selling drinks on the street? I suppose it is part of the mercantile ethos ingrained in many Americans.

The cleansing power of death in human society. The great equalizer…

  1. Disgracefully lenient sentencing but what would one expect differently when we have PC police ‘forces’ who are far more interested in arresting people for saying or tweeting something politically incorrect rather than apprehending people commiting horrific and immensely DISGUSTING ( I personally can’t think of many worse things to do to a fellow human than glassing them) acts of violence like that.

    That, of course, is what the pathetic, leftwing, excuse of a Home Secretary has ordered them to do.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

    In a decent, well run, country like Singapore with its excellent Minister of Law and Home Affairs, Mr K Shanmugam, she would get a custodial sentence several years long. If she was a man and not a woman there would be a sentence of caning via the rattan cane and perhaps a significant fine ADDED to the incarceration.

    I see that Singapore has executed another two people at dawn today for drug trafficking and will hang another two for the same offence on the traditional ” hang ’em high’ day this coming Friday.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    That will bring the number of death sentences executed for this very serious crime to ten this year.๐Ÿ˜Š

      I do not think that I have led a hugely sheltered life, yet one aspect that disturbs me very much is the number of *women* committing such acts of drunken violence as in that newspaper report.

      To some extent, feminism may be at the core of that trend, and is it too fanciful to see the same basis in the recent women’s football propaganda etc? I think not.

      1. Yes, it is a very disturbing trend and is a potent symbol of just how prevalent crime has become under the now wholly misnamed ‘party of law and order’ whose credibility on that viral subject is damaged enough but will surely be shattered totally should they choose Deeply Fishi CRIMINAL Rishi to be their party leader and PM.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

        As you suggest feminism may well have led to some women thinking it is ok for them to commit the more violent offences as men have traditionally done.

        Feminism should work both ways in that if women expect equal treatment to men and commit the same crimes they shouldn’t expect more lenient treatment just because they are of the female gender.

  2. Amnesty International, of course, is having yet another whinge at Singapore for its ultra hardline stance of hanging drug traffickers but Singapore has one of the world’s lowest rates for drug abusers, there are no drug syndicates manufacturing drugs in the city state and the crimes of violence that occur in Britain through people abusing drugs eg murder, violent assaults, etc are low there as well through this policy and a comprehensive drug control strategy only one part of which involves the use of hanging.

    This thuggish woman above who glassed the teacher may well have been high on drugs at the time.

    Morally bankrupt libertarian idiots say let us legalize drugs and say so what if people abuse them as it only affects them but drug abuse can and DOES lead many people into becoming criminals often violent ones so it is a harmful activity for society as a whole.

    Thus the stance taken by Singapore.

    At any rate, about 95% plus of all crimes in that country DO NOT possibly attract the use of capital punishment only the most serious ones do so what are they whinging about?

    If the Tories want a foreign leader I would suggest they persuade Mr K Shanmugam of Singapore to drop his Singaporean citizenship, become a British citizen and enter their leadership race.

    He makes far more common sense than Deeply Fishi CRIMINAL Rishi does or ever will!

  3. Oh, and before I forget, those who advocate cannabis use to be made wholly legal are wrong as well. Cannabis abuse also has potential harmful effects upon society.

    There is a case to be made for it to be legal for medicinal purposes under the strict supervision of doctors as it can help certain people but ONLY THAT.

      Every society where cannabis use has been prevalent has decayed and fallen. The Persian poet, Hafiz, decried its use in his own society hundreds of years ago. Also, look at places such as Jamaica and Egypt for that matter. Cannabis is illegal in both countries, but its use is widespread.

      2. Well, in Jamaica at least that doesn’t surprise me. Jamaica has an utterly horrific crime rate in general and one of the world’s highest murder rates as an article on Wikipedia confirms.

        That country still has hanging on its statute book but it hasn’t been used since about 1988. They probably need to restore using it. Infact, so bad are Jamaica’s crime levels and, in particular, its violent crime/murder level that Jamaicans have been known to advocate we British returning to rule the island. Under British colonial rule we were not afraid to be TOUGH when it came to how to control the locals’ criminal tendencies just like Singapore is today ( they have clearly learnt our colonial crime control methods well from their previous British governors๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€)

  4. Anyone who glasses another human being should face a mandatory punishment of at least five years imprisonment and preferably more like ten.

    To be honest, I really can’t think of many crimes more intrinsically wicked than that as even if you don’t blind someone or injure them severely in another way that person will undoubtedly suffer emotional trauma and be afraid to go out in public etc.

  5. These sort of utterly despicable crimes have to be stamped down on HARD. Sadly, we can’t use caning via the rattan cane as in Singapore on ghastly male thugs who engage in that sort of wickedness but we can and must incarcerate them for decently long periods.

    Prison capacity must be used well for serious offenders like that woman and if more prisons have to be built to incarcerate them then that is what needs to be done!

    Like

    1. John:
      I am not sure whether I would agree with you about caning certain convicts, but if it *is* going to be available to the courts, it should apply to women as well as men. “Equality” before the law? eg in the case in question. It could be limited to one or two strokes.

      1. Singaporean-style caning via the rattan cane is a pretty fearsome punishment that involves a fairly considerable amount of physical pain.

        It is MEAร‘T to HURT and it does in order to provide for retribution for a serious crime and to deter others from doing the same.

        In Singapore, caning is restricted to men under the age of 50 who are physically well enough to undergo it. Women are not subjected to it because it is a harsh punishment and their bodies can’t take it.

        Women and men who are not in a fit state of health are given extra time in prison on top of the normal period of incarceration to compensate for caning not being used.

      2. John:
        Frankly, I think that a woman such as that vicious “ho” can well take a single really hard stroke of the cane, if you are going to mandate caning at all as a punishment open to a judge. “If you can’t take the cane, don’t come back again”, if you like…

      3. I do understand your point about the punishment appearing to be sexist but women are given more prison time and, at any rate, crime, or at least, serious violent criminality in all countries to my knowledge is overwhelmingly a male occupation and committed by younger men in particular.

        It is said by criminologists that the rate of offending tends to go down pretty steadily after the age of 35.

        Like

      4. One of the real beauties of caning or another form of judicial corporal punishment like birching is that it can be a very variable sentence thus a judge can have a wide range of stroke options to choose from when sentencing an offender from just 3 or so as is used in Singapore for people who wilfully overstay their visas up to 24 in that country for more serious crimes like drug trafficking.

        The death penalty can’t be adjusted. It is absolute sentence as there are no degrees of death.

      5. Caning as in Singapore is a harsh penalty and is designed to be so it has a deterrent effect but at least the criminal is still left alive at the end of it unlike with the hangman’s noose.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

      6. Though prison does ‘work’ as Michael Howard once famously said to a Tory conference in 1993 in that it incapacitates an offender so that they can only commit crimes INSIDE prison and not outside of them and it does deter some people from engaging in criminal activity particularly if the terms of imprisonment are lengthy enough some people need other forms of deterrence to be used so, I suggest, reviving the use of judicial corporal punishment via the birch for some or the more harsh rattan cane of Singapore to fit this requirement.

      7. Prisons should be fairly austere places but still relatively humane. Japan’s prison regimes are very disciplined and the immates are required to work ie to sort of ‘pay for your stay’.

        Singaporean prisons are regimented too but prisoners are still effectively rehabilitated. I’ve been watching YouTube videos of prisons in Singapore and been impressed at the rehabilitative efforts going on inside of them. The Singaporean penal system is not an unending horror show of overt harshness as one might expect given that country’s notorious stance on crime.

  6. Yes, Liz Truss is not ‘the sharpest tool in the box’. She is not going to be a good competitor on MasterMind anyday soon but she does have a few things in her favour in that she is ethnically English, she is NOT a confirmed CRIMINAL as Sunak is (seriously, what form of credibility left could Britain’s self-proclaimed ‘party of law and order’ have if they elected a CRIMINAL CANDIDATE (at least Boris only committed an offence AFTER he obtained high office) ?

    She isn’t hugely relatable as a person but scores more highly than Sunak does in that department with his massive and some may say obscene wealth. Rishi’s personalty just grates and is liable to rub people up the wrong way which could well be a problem in what will be a far more competitive election campaign than last time. Many within the electorate feel they need someone in No.10 who they can relate to in at least a small way.

    None of the remaining two are ideal candidates but, I think, Liz Truss has the edge.

  9. Liz Truss only has to last up to three years or even less than that since the Tories rather stupidly scrapped the Fixed Term Parliaments Act.

    Ending that just goes to show how much in the dark ages they are as a party when it comes to constitutional and electoral reform. Seriously, about the only point of contention with that piece of legislation was that the duration of parliaments was set at five years instead of four. Four year terms are the ideal whereas five is too long and three is too short.

  10. There is another reason the Tories should choose Liz Truss over Sunak. He has been arguing in Cabinet about taking a softer line with the EU over the NI Protocol issue. The Tories MUST effectively rectify Boris Johnson’s extremely reckless idiocy on that matter and fully secure this country’s constitutional and economic integrity.

    A soft line with the EU is very unlikely to work and that has been the experience so far with them with little in the way of durable and real improvements to the Protocol offered to us by that stance.

    Sunak simply can’t be trusted to put this country, and in particular NI, first instead of the EU.

  11. Then there is Sunak’s decidedly dodgy tax affairs and his holding of a US Green Card whilst being OUR Chancellor of the Exchequer which to me and I suspect others shows a lack of real commitment to THIS country.

        The important factor in many electoral contests, particularly marginal seats, lies in emotion, not intellect. Policy, in reality, is key in governing a country, but *in elections* takes a back seat to emotion.

        Such as…what does the candidate, or party leader, look like, and what is the “story” about the party leader (even if fake).

        So it was that Boris-idiot (with Jew-Zionist msm help) was portrayed as “true blue” “Englishman”, highly intelligent, hugely educated and cultured etc, who had already had a stellar scribbling and political career.

        90% of that was fake (he’s a part-Jew, born in New York, brought up largely in the USA and Belgium, and is nowhere as intelligent or indeed educated as portrayed; neither was he any good either as Mayor of London or MP, or as Foreign Secretary, let alone as a journalist etc). Crucially, though, the image trumped the facts, for many voters.

  13. Deeply Fishi CRIMINAL Rishi (see it even rhymes well!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ is liable to make working-class Tory voters stay at home on election day in those crucial ‘Red Wall’ marginal seats. The Tories have NEVER won a general election or even come close to doing so without at least some working class people voting for them. Working-class Tories tend to be, let us put it delicately, socially conservative!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    The Tories are fanatical defenders of our grotesquely unfair and thus undemocratic First Past The Post electoral system yet appear to have scant knowledge about how it actually works.

    Under our crazy system people DO NOT vote for political parties even though many think they do. We vote for ONE candidate ONLY in ONE seat thus there is NO explicit link between a party’s support level across the country and its number of seats in parliament.

    This being the case, Labour only has to maintain its present support level in the marginal seats whilst Tories abstain in them and then the Tories will lose these seats even though the numbers of Labour voters remain broadly the same as last time.

    Liz Truss has a better chance of maintaining the numbers of working-class Tories in these seats and not encouraging them to sit at home like Sunak will.

  14. Blacks are overrepresented in the crime statistics when compared to their numbers in the population both here and in the US. Simply put, and yes the PC maniac brigade won’t like hearing this, blacks have a greater propensity to commit crime. London is a good example of that with its horrific mass stabbing rate nowdays.๐Ÿ˜ โ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    Hence, one reason why states with high black populations and high black murder rates such as Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina etc cling so tenaciously onto the death penalty. When push comes to shove, capital punishment is used to try and restrain their criminal tendencies.

    For that reason whites in death penalty states support it more than blacks do (even though blacks murder other blacks quite a lot too) with Latino Americans being inbetween in support levels.
