Is the law`an ass?


Recommended Posts

A father picks up his two kids, and jumps off an hotel balcony, killing his son. :shock: The Coroner rules (rightly IMO), that the boy was "unlawfully" killed. :? A subsequent trial found the father to have been "temporalily" insane at the time of the killing and an appeal has therefore ruled out "unlawfull" killing. :? So does that mean, that if a nutter kills someone, it's lawfull killing? :?:roll::twisted:

This is one of those "catch22" questions isn't it? Only someone insane would do such a thing therefore he must have been insane at the time of the act. So the verdict may have been that the killing was not unlawful, it only applies to the law covering killing while sane, not to the law covering killing while the balance of the mind is disturbed. So he is still guilty of an unlawful act even if he can't be held responsible for his actions by reason of insanity (this is driving me mad!!!!) :wink:

Thats why I say "Catch22", because, you would think, he would have to be insane to do such a thing :?:?

Following an investigation by Cheshire Constabulary and advice from the Crown Prosecution Service in relation to an allegation of assault that occurred in Warrington on August 26, no further action will be taken in respect of the 29-year-old female who was arrested in relation to the incident. ?

 

another example of an incompetent agency that is useless at its job.

Methinks the problem is: 1) There are tooo many laws (this Gov has produced more than any previous Gov), and they tend to be of a superficial and trivial nature and full of loop holes. 2) They are not enforced by the police and other agencies (eg: drivers using cell phones). 3) The penalties are too lenient to deter in some cases, with murderers now getting away with 6 years. So, all in all, we've drifted from order to anarchy. :roll::twisted:
