Maybe The ‘PinkStinks' People Have It Right After All…

A knifewoman in a pink onesie arrested on a Burnley street was said to have earlier sent threatening texts to a woman after a dispute, a court heard.
Grace Taylor, a 21-year-old mum-of-one, had a large bread knife tucked up her right sleeve when she was detained in Brunshaw Road, at 7.45am.
She was said to have started sending messages to the woman at about 5.45am, telling her she was going to go round and ‘bash’ her.
Ah, such a fragile flower of femininity...
Taylor, an amphetamine addict who has a record for unruly behaviour, is banned by a restraining order from her own grandmother’s home because of her conduct. She claimed the knife was for self-protection.
Well, of course she did..!
The defendant, who also has pink hair, was spared jail by Judge Beverley Lunt who warned her it was the only chance she would give her.
*sighs* Beverley, Beverley... When will you learn?
David Temkin, defending Taylor, said she had instability in her life and was ‘crying out’ for long-term supervision and assistance.
One can only hope that child doesn't live with her then...

How fortunate it is that only the male of the species is prone to violence, while the female is by her nature a gentle, nurturing flower.

Surely long term supervision and assistance could be given in prison? She is crying out for it after all.

"Her voice was ever soft,
Gentle and low, an excellent thing in woman."

Bill had it right.

Personally, I can't see where the problem is, of a woman going out to her local shop for a loaf of uncut bread and, in order to save time, prepared to cut it into slices on her way home. The onsie was because of her attempt to raise money for charities dealing with drug addiction, and the officious Police officers overreacted blwoing this whole incident out of proportion.
I think her defence brief missed a trick or two.
