Because Punishment Is Squaresville, Man…

After listening to the circumstances, Sheriff Derek Hamilton adjourned briefly to look at background reports before returning to the bench for sentencing.
He said: “I have some difficulty knowing what to do here. I’m left with just admonishing you — that is an unusual sentence, but these are unusual circumstances.
“There’s no good purpose in deferring sentence, you are not suitable for supervision and there’s nothing to be gained by imposing a punishment.”
So, the next time you break into somewhere armed with a knife, threaten riot police with syringes and have to be tranquilised like a wild animal to deal with you, do us all a favour and make it a judge’s chambers, eh, and not a children’s ward..?
