Murderer's bought to justice.
« on: April 05, 2011, 05:58:50 AM »

A father and son who broke into a mans house and stabbed him to death with kitchen knifes as he slept next to his girlfriend, have been given 20yrs each for his murder. The two men attacked him at 4am in the morning after an argument at a children's party the day before. They then fled the country and spent the next two years on the run. A Europe-wide manhunt tracked them down. One was found in Italy the other in Germany. A minor incident at the party had escalated and and both men ( Father and Son ) had made threats to kill him. They claimed self-defense in court but the jury found them guilty of murder in less than 1 hour of deliberation's.

well, just excellent.

-The natural right of self-defense permits us to oppose an enemy with the same arms he uses, and to make his own rage and folly recoil upon himself-

      It's normal here for seemingly low sentencing. A twenty year tariff is rarely served fully. The get a parole hearing after 8 or 10 and that's what they will end up doing.

I thought that the flight from justice aspect should have added more time, it seems the judge was in a good mood and skipped over that part.

All the political party's in the U.K without exception have consistently talked tough on knife crime and promised to punish those who offend with max sentencing, but the sad reality is that they have all failed to deliver on that promise. In Scotland the sentencing has been full on. Hence a major drop in knife crime.
