No, Judge, He Is 'The Wrong Crowd'...

James Pumfrey, 18, continued attempting to flee from officers even after two tyres on his car were punctured by a specialist police stinger.
Pumfrey was sentenced after he admitted dangerous driving and drug driving due to consumption of cannabis.
In the chase Pumfrey reached speeds of 80mph in residential streets.
Well, this should be an easy one. But then I remembered what our 'justice' system is like.
Yet deputy Judge Richard Griffith-Jones at Warwick Crown Court felt prison wouldn’t help. He said: “It is easy to imagine someone like you getting in with the wrong crowd.”
How could they be any more wrong...?
“It is important, if it can be avoided, that you are kept away from malign influences.
Are you going to remove all mirrors from his house?
“If you had spent years in the courts, you would have seen families who have lost loved ones in road accidents you would have seen people who cannot walk because they have been injured in road accidents.
Don't worry, judge, he's fixing to spend years in the courts!
“Driving is one of the most potentially dangerous things people do. It must be obvious to you, though you won’t have seen what I have seen, that you can change or destroy people’s lives.
“And if you take drugs, you make your driving even more dangerous, because it obliterates any careful approach. You are lucky you haven’t killed or maimed someone.”
He's lucky...?
Joshua Purser, mitigating, said: “It was three things, fear, immaturity and inexperience, which are a potentially dangerous cocktail behind the wheel.
“He has a borderline diagnosis of Asperger’s, which had heightened those three factors, and which also resulted in him being easily led.”
*rolls eyes*
He was sentenced to six months suspended for a year, disqualified from driving for a year, given a curfew and a rehabilitation requirement.
What is the bloody point?

Will you never catch up? He's got a borderline diagnosis of an ailment identified by those who make a living diagnosing ailments they've invented. He's a victim, I tell you!

Borderline Aspergers = thick as pig plop.

"He's a victim, I tell you!"

When did everyone start aspiring to that?

"Borderline Aspergers = thick as pig plop."

But isn't it those who encourage this misdiagnosis that are the real morons?
