Compare And Contrast (Yet Again)

When Carl Sinclair saw a drug addict try to steal his car as his wife and three children slept in his Doncaster home, he grabbed a lump hammer, rushed outside in his boxers and punched the burglar to the floor.

Police soon arrived…

Yeah, you guessed…!

…but instead of praising his heroics they arrested him for assault.

I’d despair, if it wasn’t so totally expected from our ‘brave boys in blue’.

It seems that they were concerned that he’d not used ‘appropriate force’, which is something of a puzzle, given what they routinely get away with, isn’t it?

Mr Sinclair was then charged with wounding and lost his job as a railway safety manager due to the stress of his arrest in December.

After he was yesterday cleared by a jury in just half an hour, he branded the justice system a farce.

That’s far more polite than I’d be. Yet it’s strange how they can find enough evidence to arrest Mr Sinclair, who has a clean record, but not a bunch of already convicted crims, isn’t it?

No prisoners will be prosecuted over a two-day riot in which armed inmates took over a wing and smashed windows, it has emerged.

Riot-trained officers were sent to HMP The Mount, Hertfordshire, after trouble broke out on 31 July and 1 August.

Hertfordshire Police said it had exhausted all lines of inquiry and no charges would be brought.

No doubt they’ll bleat that it was ‘all the fault of the CPS’ as they usually do. Unfortunately for them, that occurred to the CPS too:

The CPS said it had not received a referral from police in relation to this matter.

The Ministry of Justice said it would not comment as it was a matter for the police.

Your taxes at work, folks!

    Doesn’t the buck stop on the desk of our Home Secretary, Amber Rudd?
    Did the innocent man get back his job?
    Was the car thief prosecuted?

    I think I know the answers to these questions.

    If the thief was a Muslim Mr Sinclair would have been charged with attempted murder, and did the police give the thief a kiss and cuddle and wipe away his tears before arresting Mr Sinclair?,, By the way its the “Ministry of Injustice”.

    A jury decision in just half an hour is just about as quick as it can possibly be.
    From leaving the courtroom, one or two maybe going out for a cigarette, since they don’t know when the next chance will come, one or two going to the loo (same reason) and back to the jury waiting area outside the courtroom, and into court – all in half an hour.
    I suspect they went once round the table and got 12 ‘Not Guilty’ straight away.

    I would like to think that some might have said ‘Why the hell are the prosecuting authorities putting the defendant through this, and wasting our time too? He’s an innocent man; let’s get back there now and acquit.’
