    It doesn't make sense how those thugs who chased after two robberies who hadn't harmed his family and were already running, and then smashed their heads in with bats giving one brain damage gets let off, yet the women who gave her brain damaged soon a heroin over-dose to kill him gets found guilty of murder when she was clearly most likely mental ill, under a considerable amount of stress and aguish over her sons irreversible damage.

    The legal system in this country is so inconsistant, it does make me wonder a lot of the time whether race genuinely does play a part in what sentence you get. I wonder if the thugs had been white whether they'd have won appeal.

    What?

    If someone brakes into YOUR home, and threatens to kill YOUR wife and kids, wtf would you do?

    They shouldn't of broken into his house, simple as that.

    Lets say, someone brakes into your home with a knife, you confront them and wack them round the head with something and they die.. chances are you will go down for murder, or manslaughter. That is unjust!

    There are a lot of factors of law-making that have nothing to do with fairness. What I find crazy is that you seriously seem to believe that you have a superior sense of how the legal system should be than all the extensively educated specialists and democratically elected officials who create that system.

    There will always be people who disagree with a verdict; would you rather have a popular outcome or an outcome that is based on the facts presented to the judge/jury?

    Wow, deja vu from a month and a bit ago.

    Look - they broke the law, there is never a justification for that. It would have been enough to apprehend or scare off the robbers, not to give them brain damage with a vicious beating. To equalise the odds is one thing, to take revenge in an act of barbaric vigilantism is quite another.

    Frankly, I think it's a bit much to compare the two cases, but the case of the mother is probably an example of how the mentally ill are treated in British "justice", whilst the anti-robbers are probably an example of how the rich can get away with anything [one of them's a millionaire, the other's his brother]

    No, that's incorrect. More likely, it would be an uncontroversial case in which the defendant was found innocent. It's self-defence. In the case mentioned, the accused chased down two fleeing men. You're not dangerous to someone if you are sprinting in the opposite direction.

    That is what's called self-defence, the law does not however defend vengeance which is what that case involved.

    yes, if someone is in your house robbing from you, then dammit you should be civil! They are, after all, your guests.
    and of course your murdering of your disabled son is excusable because you are unhinged!

    you make SO MUCH ******* SENSE!
