It’s Jordan Horsley, and he’s just faced the full wrath of the justice system…
Sentencing Horsley, the Recorder of Leeds, Judge Peter Collier QC, described the case as "unique".Eh..?
What, exactly, is ‘unique’ about this creature? Was this a totally out-of-the-blue, uncharacteristic act?
Well, hardly. As always, we now discover he has the usual criminal record and associated non-punishment:
The court heard Horsley had a previous conviction for hitting someone over the head with half a brick and had been cautioned for assault on a separate occasion.Well, maybe he was a young man from an impeccable background?
The teenager, whose mother died when he was young, had suffered a violent relationship with his father and was living alone at the time of the offence.OK, well then, maybe this case was ‘unique’ because the judge threw the book at him, instead of imposing the usual wishy-washy puni…
Judge Collier said social services had been involved with the family but said matters had not been resolved "satisfactorily".
The teenager was handed a 12-month detention and training order today at Leeds Crown Court after he was found guilty of attempting to cause Mrs Warden grievous bodily harm with intent.I’m afraid I’m struggling to see what Judge Collier found ‘unique’ about this young man.
In fact, it seems like there’s far too many like him out there. But I doubt Judge Collier will ever keep himself awake at nights wondering why.
As NorthNorthwester points out:
"Any part of civilized life might have prevented Horsley from degenerating into a Morlock, but you can bet that at every level the liberals have been busy causing this problem and making it worse every blood-stained step of the way, and especially undermining the very notion of authority..."
