I was listening to your local news agency about it last night. And for what he did prior I was like how the heck wasn't he locked away for good? Even the reporter was not having it. Sounds like the UK is getting to be like the US.
Guy goes out and gets drunk on a holiday. Drives hits a car with 3 people in it. Kills 2 severely hurts the 3rd. Goes to jail for only 5 years because his lawyer said he didn't know what he was doing because he was drunk.. he gets out and sues the state for slander and loss of time as he owned a cabinet shop and 5 years he lost a lot of money and clients due to how the news made him look like the bad guy and the @** wins a $2.2 million dollar suit. Gets ran out of town 5 years for the death of twin girls who lost their older sister 6 months earlier to a drink driver. Sad.
On the flip side.
18 year old kid with a bit of a record for drugs mostly cannabis, gets into a fight with his Ex GF. From what we heard she pulled a gun on him to defend herself and he struggled to get the gun away from her she gets shot, and dies. Kid called 911 and stayed only to be arrested again. He gets 25 years for her death, and another 15 for possession.. the ladder has now been overturned as it's legal now.
Commit murder in our state serve less than 10 years anymore. Have drugs on you serve half your remaining life.
Thankfully the kid that shot and blinded a local officer, and was involved in a 14 hour standoff, and had a huge rap sheet, and was part of the local gangs indirectly they say, he's in for life.
Also seems like any more of you plead insanity, you can spend the rest of your life at the Physc hospital, comfortable, happy with privileges beyond comprehension.
So it's good there will be no trial in the UK incident. Too many ways to weasel out of heinous crimes today.
