I'm So Glad England Has Strict Gun Laws!

A sex offender armed himself with a shotgun and drove more than 30 miles to shoot out the windows of a terrified family.
Two days earlier, Adrian Thorsby, 49, had been granted bail prior to being sentenced for a sex attack on a girl.
Bail! FFS! They hand that out for pretty much anything these days, don't they?
Prosecutor David Hall told Hull Crown Court: "It seems that rumour and gossip and reports of the case spread around Hull.
"There were reports of him being a paedophile. He was unhappy about this."
You know how not to be reported as a paedophile, Mr Thorsby? Well, to start with, you could not be convicted of a sex attack on a 6-year-old child...

Still, armed with this new knowledge, the justice system will, I'm sure, deal with him appropriately.
Thorsby was jailed for four and a half years for possessing a shotgun with intent to cause fear of violence.
Oh. Maybe not.

So we'll never know what he would have got for the sex attack n a little girl. I'll hazard a guess it would have been much less.

At first I thought I couldn't believe he'd been bailed after being convicted but then I checked the name of the country I live in. Still, it's a new one on me. Who knew ?

It's like the authorities shocked themselves silly and couldn't quite believe that they were actually going to lock someone up, couldn't bear the thought of it and gave them one last chance to run like hell.

They must be gutted that this one ran back. :/

And he won't even serve the full four and a half years, will he?

No, it'll be a cell death.
