A heartless yob who stole a pensioner's dog days before it was found dead after being thrown 40ft from a viaduct has been jailed.I'm afraid I can see no good reason why this degenerate excuse for a man should not be given a taste of his own medicine while behind bars.
Let's hope the old lags feel the same way about animal torturers as they claim to do about child molesters:
Marshman, who has a string of previous convictions including possession of a firearm and burglary, was convicted last month of stealing Jess.Yet another triumph for the justice system, I'm sure you'll agree?
He refused to say whether he threw Jess to her death.
When even the defence's 'mitigation' is clearly half-hearted at best, you can tell even the usual bleeding hearts and do-gooders have had enough:
Paul Blanchard, mitigating, said that his client had been in and out of custody since 2003 and had become institutionalised, finding it hard to deal with the real world.I can't see that society would be best served by allowing something like this to ever walk the streets again, amongst decent people.
He added: 'Nothing can detract from the fact that the Bisbys have lost their pet.'
