This to me is a clear example of white privilege

Now had this been a young black girl I think the decision would have been very different and had this been a young Muslim girl in a headscarf, the entire article would emphasise religion and somehow link her to being a terrorist.

But she's white so it's cool, she got away with it. You people really do 'get away with murder' as you like to say

That's also feminism in action.

A muslim man would probably have been given the worst sentence of all lol.

True that haha, he could only have possibly stabbed somebody because he is part of ISIS.

Wow. Let's all jump on the hate white people bandwagon. One example of a white woman who didn't kill; but stabbed her boyfriend and you bash all white people. Then, when people call all muslims terrorists, you shut them down, call them racist, islamophobes, xenophobes etc. Hypocrisy at its finest.

"You people" Replace white with Muslim and see if you change your mind.

P.S. you seem to enjoy commenting on posts that bash white people

More to do with social class than race. I can't imagine a white person on benefits living on a council estate would have got away with it.

Yep, blatantly obvious that white ppl are let off easy by the legal system. And for anyone who thinks that this is because she's a woman, you can have a look at Brock Turner then come back to me.

Her white skin is the only reason why the legal system gives her a lighter system. The system is rigged against non whites.

I'm so sorry, only ethnic minorities are privileged and white people are oppressed.

Men are likely to be given longer sentences than women for the same crime. Her gender probably has a little to do with it. The whole 'women are weak' thing.

Theres a whole thread on this already.

She hasnt got away with anything as sentence has been deferred. Why not come up with some evidence of something comparable?

I think a white woman on benefits probably would be fined, there's no way prison would even be an option because she's white after all.

Then obv once she explains she can't pay because she's on benefits, she'd probs get away with it because ultimately the flawed UK justice system can't be putting a white person in jail
