Sentences That Just Make No Sense At All...

A vulnerable woman held a kitchen knife to her care worker’s throat...
Wait, which one's 'vulnerable' here..?!? .
..because she was enraged that the last doughnut had been eaten by a male resident in her supported accommodation, a Bradford Crown Court jury heard.
Oh, well, so long as she had a reason...
Prosecutor Nick Adlington said two psychiatrists had found that she was “under a disability” which meant she could not participate in the trial process.
Then why bother with a trial?
Recorder Hawks sentenced her to a two year supervision order, calling it “an unpleasant and terrifying incident”.
He told Longbottom: “Nothing is going to happen to you. You will be going back to the address where you live.”
What a total waste of public money.

You gotta get with the narrative, Julia...

"the last doughnut had been eaten by a male resident"

He was probably white as well. It's well known that white males are responsible for everything that goes wrong in the world.

He probably voted for Brexit as well.

Imprisonment of felons has lost its meaning. Prison is not for punishment, it is not for correction. Prison is there to remove those people who cannot or will not live by our rules of behaviour. Whether a person has a diagnosed illness or not, if they can't be trusted to live among us they should not be free to roam around.

:D

"He probably voted for Brexit as well.

And Trump!

"Whether a person has a diagnosed illness or not, if they can't be trusted to live among us they should not be free to roam around."

The progressives sneer at the old Victorian asylum, without acknowledging it really WAS a 'place of safety'.
