“Blundell and John Pordage did not know each other. They only came into contact because Blundell and his friends were getting petrol for a stolen motorbike and John happened to be at the same petrol station.
“Most reasonable people would consider the verbal exchanges that took place as nothing more than banter.
"A reasonable person would have walked away from a potential confrontation. They wouldn’t have shot someone in a rage.”And then fled the country. Don't forget that.
But aren't we lucky that in this country we don't have the death penalty, so we can now pay to keep this murderer behind bars until he can convince a parole board he's reformed?
And also that we don't have a right to bear arms in this country, so that a criminal in possession of an illegal weapon knows he's free to shoot, and his potential victim isn't going to be similarly armed?
Truly, we are so much better off, aren't we?
