I Think They Placed The Contingent Destruction Order On The Wrong Beast…

An ultra violent robber who smashed in the faces of take-away delivery men after robbing them has been jailed for nine years.
‘Smashed in the faces of’..? Who’s writing this report?
Trained boxer Michael Dineen, 20, called a pizza delivery business, and a week later an Indian take-away, to Brierley, New Addington, last November where he used his Staffordshire Bull terrier Cleo to help him carry out the assaults.
The dog presumably being the brains of the criminal operation?
Mr Chowla spared the dog, registered to Dineen’s mother, but ordered a contingent destruction order which will see her put down should she be involved in violence again.
Couldn’t we apply that order to Dineen too?

I'd prefer it if we didn't. I don't see any reason to make it contingent on further violence - right now suits me just fine!

When we were kids we were always using the threat "I'm gonna smash your face in" usually followed by the reply "Yeah well, my dad's bigger than your dad" or "My dad was in the army and will smash your dad's face in"

Conversation usually ended with "let's go and ask my mum if we can have a biscuit"

"The court also heard Dineen had previously escaped jail for an assault at the start of 2010. "

Really! Who would have guessed?

""He carried on with the intent of causing continuous and gratuitous violence"

No you Spaz, he carried on with the intent to kill. He's a boxer therefore his fists are weapons, which you admit and if you use a weapon to attack someone in the course of robbing them then it's attempted murder....even if you "didn't mean to kill them much...innit..like".

Well I know it's popular to blame the parents but it seems a bit rough to put down the mother.

I still can't see anything wrong with eugenics - or in the compulsory sterilising of low grades who act like this.

Good point! I must be getting soft...

"No you Spaz, he carried on with the intent to kill. He's a boxer therefore his fists are weapons..."

Quite. They don't seem to have made as much of that as they could.

"Well I know it's popular to blame the parents but it seems a bit rough to put down the mother."

Lol!
