And It Could Also Have Been Prevented…

The murder bore chilling echoes of Byfield’s previous conviction, which involved him breaking in to another former girlfriend’s home and attacked her with a chisel. He was jailed for 30 months for that earlier offence and in 2007 an order was made to deport him from Britain.
Judge Cooke expressed his “unhappiness” at the authorities’ failure to carry out that deportation and said the murder could have been prevented if he had been sent back to Jamaica then.
…if Ms Duffy had been a little more discerning in her choice of sexual partner.

Couldn’t it?

In the words of Harry Callahan.. "Well that's a hell of a price to pay for being stylish..".

Oh dear. Blaming the victim are we Julia? It's off to re-education for you.

It's good to see her family aren't embarking on a crusade to see 'this never happens again' and getting a new law brought in their daughters name, like John Clough and the stalkers register brigade. (At least it hasn't been reported that they are).

That makes a refreshing change

Ah! A classic.

"Oh dear. Blaming the victim are we Julia? It's off to re-education for you."

They've probably named a wing of the camp after me!
