A shop owner feels “completely let down” after the yobs who threatened to kill his family had their prison sentences overturned.Yup, these charmers.
… on Friday, a judge at Basildon Crown Court overturned the sentences, on the grounds they were “excessive” , instead handing them community orders with unpaid work.*sighs*
However, Speaking after the hearing, Mr Reno, said: “I feel completely let down by the courts.
“I’ve not had justice and I don’t feel the judge has realised the impact this has had on me and my family.
“The courts should be set up to punish people when they commit crime to stop them doing it again.
“A community order is not a deterrent.
“Now I believe it’s just a matter of time until they do this again.
“The courts just seem to be there to protect criminals instead of victims.”Yes. They do, don't they?
