Is class still that much of a thing, though?
(Original post by Just my opinion)
Interesting you mention gender and race but not class.
Class is one of the biggest disparities in sentencing

I'm not sure where that common knowledge came from tbh [perhaps my mother said it to me when i was little or something like that]

but i have evidence to support my claim

https://www.ethnicity-facts-figures....ntences/latest

"in every year during the same period, White offenders were given the shortest custodial sentences on average, and Asian or Black offenders were given the longest"


Spoiler:
Show
although [and i don't know if I should be admitting this but I did also find some evidence that the conviction rates of whites is higher than blacks [which surprised me]

so it seems like blacks get longer sentences but whites get convicted more


"


actually I've just seen further down the page a chart comparing the length of time served of all races and genders and I was very close in what i initially said about white women having it easiest [mixed women just piped them to the post!]

The modern judiciary comprises very intelligent people, so I have to presume good faith these things.
For someone so intelligent it seems foolish to make the remarks that she did.

I ask only for the benefit of the doubt, until we get the full context and an explanation. Thank you, Ms Deca.

I will only give her the benefit of the doubt because the MoJ is on its knees due to lack of funding.

Big thing, what about the woman who killed her husband and was recently released because of the 'abusive relationship'? She wasn't even pissed and were a bloke to be in the same situation we would have the court picketed by the feminists and the BBC.

Class still a factor in sentencing if you had 2 eighteen-year-old white British lads who both got caught dealing class A drugs one lad a middle-class well-spoken university student who was dealing to his classmates the other lad working class poorly spoken and unemployed. Who do you think is going to get the harsh sentence the working class lad of course.

These statistics are even more stark when a young person or young adult of 18-20 years of age has been in the care system.

Yes that true but it also true the working lad is more likely to have spent time in the care system than the middle-class lad so he not only working class but spent time in the care system which means the cards are against him.

I can't think of what the justification is?
Ever heard of the Chivalry thesis? It is an interesting read in Sociology and may explain what is going on here
