If You Have To Ask, The Answer’s ‘Yes’…

A judge who gave a homeless addict a last chance to avoid jail after he attacked a woman with a needle questioned whether he was making a “stupid mistake”.


Austin, 50, who has a record of more than 130 previous convictions

Well, judge, think you have your answer!

…was given one final chance by the judge in the hope he could turn his life around.

He can’t. Isn’t that patently obvious?

“The sentencing will take place. there will be a prison sentence because what you did was wrong but if you really impress probation by working hard with them, then you might be able to persuade me to suspend it.

“[The victim] is a remarkable woman.

“She must have been really shocked.”

And probably now equally shocked at the thought of this creature going free…

Austin, who will now be living in Shanklin Court, Shanklin Road, Brighton will be sentenced on December 13.

One to watch. Place your bets.

    If the needle was part of a hypodermic syringe, what did it contain? Blood, possibly infected? Remains of some unknown drug? From the story, it appears that he stabbed himself but, if that needle had come into contact with the woman, she would be spending a considerable length of time worrying that she may be infected with HIV virus or hepatitis.
    When he does it again, and his past record suggests he is likely to, what if a needle does come into contact with an innocent party? Will this liberal minded judge make a personal apology to the victim? Stupid question, I know, but it should still be asked.

      ‘Likely to’..?

      I would have said ‘guaranteed to’…

    Either the LAW IS AN ASS or the JUDGE is or both are ?
    Have you noticed the Paradise lost mob/ sorry I meant the Extinction mob how hideously white they are, John Snow hasn’t noticed.

    Some magistrates/judges should be jailed, if not for actual crimes then just to protect the public from their gross stupidity.

      I prefer “Criminal Negligence” to gross stupidity, grossly stupid are the dickheads that gave the dickhead Judge a job, obviously the judge seems more suitable as head of our Supreme Court.

    Judges do not take their role in protecting ordinary people seriously.
