Well, Of Course They Are Laughing At The Law…

sickening scenes outside court today saw yob Daniel Chrapkowski wildly celebrate avoiding jail for a drunken attack which left an innocent bystander in hospital for a month.
Who is surprised? Not me…
… his lout friend Thomas Lane swore and squared up to photographers, after both were given non-custodial sentences by a judge.
Thus providing great photo opportunities.
The two thugs, along with a third man, Oliver O'Neill, 23, had battered Joseph O'Reilly, 24, after he had dared to ask why they were kicking over wheelie bins in Manchester city centre.

The drunken gang proceeded to savagely set about Mr O'Reilly, who was punched, knocked to the floor and kicked in the face and stomach before the cowardly trio fled.

During the brutal beating, one of the gang boasted: 'I've just been let out for GBH' before Mr O'Reilly was knocked to the floor then repeatedly kicked about the head.
And it wasn’t an idle boast, either. He had.

So, what about mitigation? It must have been good, right?
In mitigation for jobless Chrapkowski, defence counsel Miss Katie Jones said: 'He is extremely remorseful and wishes to apologise to the court. It is extremely out of character in a misguided attempt to protect his friend. '
Suuuuuuuure it’s out of character. Choirboys always hang around with scum, everyone knows that…
For sign writer Lane, Paul Hodgkinson said: 'He accepts he had been out drinking and engaging in tomfoolery - kicking around bins and that they were confronted.

'He became embroiled in an argument with a member of the public which he shouldn't have done but that mischief doesn't cross the custody threshold.'
So, participating in beating a man nearly to death is now ‘tomfoolery’?

I opt for 'words' and 'fail'.

Looking at the picture of Crapovski celebrating reminded me of the old joke:

"What do you call a Manc wearing a suit?"

"The defendant."

A Mancunian was he, must have changed his name by deed poll then as the only Mancs I know don't have names that sound like a sneeze.

"Manc", like "Scouser", is an attitude of mind, not an ethnic identity.

You can't send them to jail. They would meet real thugs there who might be rough and tough.

We are duty bound to protect the weak and helpless.

Sigh. What a wonderful country the socialists have created.

Such incidents would probably happen less often if we law-abiding types could carry guns.

I do apologise, the only ethinic identity I know of begins with 'minority' and the only people with 'attitude' are the English, apparently.

Personally I'd like to see some 'tomfoolery' happen to the lawyers and judge in question, perhaps then they'd have a more realistic view of such 'pranks'.

Nah! wishful thinking there, after all our 'betters' have 24/7 personal protection and menials to deal with items such as refuse containers and associated matters.

Whatever the ethnic origins of this obnoxious & deeply repulsive lout ..

He's certainly a fully paid-up citizen of the Peoples Democratic Republic of Chavrovia ..

There's been a typo. The idiot's name is actually Kowchrapski. I suspect the judge's name is Justice Fullov Bullshitski.

:D

Quite!

"Personally I'd like to see some 'tomfoolery' happen to the lawyers and judge in question..."

They are unlikely to live in the areas inhabited by these cretins.

"There's been a typo. The idiot's name is actually Kowchrapski. I suspect the judge's name is Justice Fullov Bullshitski."

LOL!

FFS why can't we get judges right? We seem to have seamlessly swapped right-wing reactionary bigots for useless hand-wringing milksops.

Speaking as a court usher, of 17 years standing:

Politicians, police chiefs, council chiefs, judges, barristers, etc, they're all Fabians mate. Communitarians.

Oh, and you will comply. All of you. This is the New Order.
