Well said.June 12, 2018 at 1:32 pm #159502
attempted murder ? attackers should go to prison for a minimum of 5 years, one kick in the wrong place could have killed the lad, it’s not the result that matters it’s the possibility of what might have happen’d and the intention that counts. the attackers are clear and present danger to the public. jail emJune 12, 2018 at 6:06 pm #159531
I like the way his defence said “he is not a man of violence”. Yes, he obviously is! And don’t give me that stress made him do it rubbish. Do the rest of us never get stressed?
You ask if this sort of thing has happened to anybody else. Only twice in my case. Once I ran at the man and he ran off. The other time I did get pushed about a bit but no worse, mostly because a very large friend turned up at just the right time! I also had a hammer in my hand then (as I was using it when he burst in) and the Police told me that I was very lucky I hadn’t used it to defend myself.June 12, 2018 at 6:30 pm #159532
Totally disgusted at the judges decision here,
These so called judges are so out of touch with the real world.
This was a pre meditated attack on a young lad.
This should carry a much stronger sentence.
18 months, so half the time if paroled 9 months
And 2/3rds for earliest date of release.
No message to the public. Disgusting.June 13, 2018 at 9:10 am #159534
It was premeditated violence surely? Lalu went to the garage full of rage wanting revenge. If the tyre fitter had been female would he have still hit her? If the victim had been older or with a weak heart it could have killed them.
I’m glad Lalu was jailed.June 13, 2018 at 9:32 am #159535
Are we surprised that the system doesn’t work. I’m not. The man showed intent had an accomplice to watch his back and give help, 18 months is a joke he’ll be out in 9 months. The lad and his boss will carry mental scars for a lot longer than that. Yes I speak from experience I had a vehicle removed from my premises under threat of violence from the owner and two thugs with him. It was reported to the police by a third party who wondered what all the shouting was about. The guy was apprehended and 2 weeks before it was to go to court CPS let him off with a warning/bound over because he admitted it. I never got my nearly £3000 and have nightmares about the guy coming back. . . . system what system it’s a ####ing joke.
