No, We Should Rely On Proper Justice…

…though lord knows, I understand the feeling:

After the case Sue Baugamardt from Brighton Animal Action said: “Even when the penalties are so ludicrously light, magistrates rarely enforce them fully.

“You really have to do something truly horrific to get jailed for six months.

“People have thrown animals off balconies or put them in microwaves and they don’t get six months.

“The main thing with a custodial sentence is that people in jail don’t like animal or child abusers and so the reaction she would get from other prisoners would be the real punishment she would face. “

That isn’t – or shouldn’t be – the main thing with a custodial sentence, though. Nor should we be condoning the other prisoners’ efforts to see that she faces something harsher than the bench, in their infinite wisdom, has handed down.

Because that’s not civilization.

    The consequences of people’s actions go beyond ‘justice’ as set by the legal system. There is a ‘natural’ justice in being locked up with similar awful people. It is called ‘making your bed and lying in it’.

    While one does not seek or condone the behaviour of people in jails, they are there, in the main, through their psychopathic choices, and anyone sent to jail for significant cruelty to others has also chosen to be in the company of their awful peers, if by nought else but default.

    But…. it takes a bleeding heart ‘liberal’ to demand the worst of that company.

    Civilization is looking decidedly wonky of late.

    When a Animal attacks a Human it is usually executed, animals have no rights only humans who love them and fight for them, in my opinion they are among the purest of the pure.

    In an ideal world, this woman who stamped on a duck’s neck and allowed it to be savaged by her dog should have the same done to her.

      In an ideal world she would not have done it, in an ideal world who would do it to her her?,
