This Is Not Justice...

Hussain was disqualified from driving for four years and ordered to take an extended retest.
Yeah, I'm sure this time, it'll take. Won't it?
Prosecutor Jonathan Sharp told the court Hussain had been disqualified from driving three times, the last time only two months before the accident.
Hussain had been driving around uninsured in the Seat, which he borrowed from a friend who was unaware he was not insured or licensed to drive.
It seems he doesn't listen much to what society - in the form of the legal courts in the land - has to say. I wonder why?
Sgt Greaves said: "Najeeb Hussain was a disqualified driver, who not only took it upon himself to drive a car that day, but did so at a dangerous and excessive speed which resulted in the tragic death of Mr McDermott.
"There is no sentence that can ease the pain of the loss for his family."
Are you sure? There's always hanging.

There used to be a time when driving whilst disqualified resulted in a prison sentence - spending several months in a cell with Bubba usually concentrated the mind somewhat. Then the Frankfurt School supporting, social engineering, left wing f#cktards worked their way into authority. The result is that, nowadays, there is very little connection between the law and justice.

As Penseivat said driving whilst disqualified invariably attracted a custodial sentence. It was a great way of dealing with persistent criminals - if you couldn't get them for burglary or theft you kept reporting them for no insurance or other driving offences. They eventually got a disqualification and were invariably picked up for disqualified driving resulting in a short custodial sentence and a criminal off the streets for a while. BTW I don't buy this 'picking on innocent motorists' thing. It used to be a good way of dealing with persistent criminals, after all Al Capone went down for tax evasion didn't he?

Hanging is too good (quick) for him.

I always liked Judge Nutmeg's scheme for sentencing; spin the wheel of justice.

Those who commit crimes where they force other people to take the risks and penalties of their actions should be subjected to random outcomes. They might have to run naked through a big pen of hungry tigers. If they make it across, they can go free. If they get mauled...oh dear, well, that's just a chance they have to take. They seemed happy enough about it for the victims.

I am sure the tigers will enjoy a game of live chase.

"After Hussain, who admitted causing death by dangerous driving, was jailed for four years ... "

Is that not custodial? Any jail time for driving whilst disqualified would probably have been concurrent, so pointless.

TM,
Hussein had appeared at court for driving whilst disqualified several times before this case. If he had been jailed the first or second time, he may not have committed this offence and someone may still be alive.

Indeed. *sighs*

"It was a great way of dealing with persistent criminals - if you couldn't get them for burglary or theft you kept reporting them for no insurance or other driving offences."

Yup, the Al Capone Gambit has its merits, not least in giving the public a break from depredations.

"I am sure the tigers will enjoy a game of live chase."

They should get the same chance to express their natural behaviours as Hussain, after all!
