judge demands to know which genius decided to prosecute householder holding knife

Been sitting here for a minute or so trying to find a new way to say the law is an ass.  ??  Can’t think of one.
At least the judge was on top of things even if the idiot prosecutors weren’t. However, here’s another damn case where any of us might have reacted in the same way, says he was wrong. Says sorry. What’s with that?  I’ve been away for too long so tell me.  Do Americans say sorry as often as I report Brits saying sorry?
Jeesh.  Can’t anyone simply say hey. I was confronted with a situation and I saw no other way at the time. Sorry?  Fuck no I’m not sorry. I wish I could killed the bastards. It’s what they would have deserved. Now they will simply go off and do the same to someone else.  And that ain’t justice and it isn’t right. So no, I’m not sorry.  I want someone to say that or something like that, because we all know most people and especially any who have ever been victims, would say that.
But no. People must satisfy courts and tender hearted libtards and hand wringers with words of sorrow and remorse when in fact, there is nothing to be remorseful about. 

Take a look at this one.
Good judge. Idiots for prosecutors.


Judge attacks ‘genius’ prosecutors after householder confronts yobs with knife

A senior judge demanded to know which “genius” decided to charge a householder for holding knife while protecting his home despite none of the armed yobs being arrested.

By Andrew Hough

David Beeley, 44, decided to confront a gang of drunken teenagers who attacked his home with metal weapons in the middle of the night last summer.

He grabbed a cooking knife to defend himself as they shouted that they planned to kill him. But although none of the gang was prosecuted, Mr Beeley was charged with possession of a knife.

Today, prosecutors came under fire from judge, Michael Stokes, QC, who was highly critical of the decision to charge the logistics manager.

Describing the householder as being of “good character”, the Recorder of Nottingham asked: “Which genius thought it was in the public interest to prosecute this defendant?”

Mr Beeley had admitted one count of “having an article with a blade in a public place”, to avoid the stress of a trial, Nottingham Crown Court heard.

But the judge sentenced him to a six month conditional discharge, meaning Mr Beeley will not face any punishment.

Tonight, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) defended their decision to pursue the case, insisting that officials had properly “considered the evidence in the case and the public interest”.

He was also charged with a “summary offence” of “using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with intent to cause fear or provoke violence”.

Outside court Mr Beeley admitted he had made a “bad decision” and should not have confronted the gang with a knife.

“I was a little bit rankled because of the aggression I received, but I shouldn’t have done that, it was a bad decision,” he said.

“I just want to put it behind me really. It went on for months, and I had to go to court several times.”

It is understood that none of the youths, a group of squatters who were armed with “metal implements”, have been prosecuted.

“I was a little bit disappointed by that because you wonder whether they will go on to do something else,” Mr Beeley added.

“I’m disappointed with the reaction of the police that night. And I agree with what the judge said. It was nice to see a judge with a sense of humour.”

Andrew Tanser, prosecuting, had earlier told the court that the defendant was asleep at 11.30pm on August 13 when he was awoken by several drunken teenagers shouting outside his front door.

After yelling at the gang to be quiet, the yobs, who were “rowdy and clearly in drink”, shouted at Mr Beeley before later returning with weapons and banged on the door to his home, a large Victorian detached house in which has been divided into flats.

Mr Beeley, lives alone in a second floor apartment, went downstairs, picked up an “ordinary kitchen knife”, he had used to cook dinner earlier that night, and went out to confront the gang, who later fled.

Police were called and Mr Beeley, from Mapperley Park, a suburb in the city’s north-east, was arrested and charged.

James Whiting, 29, a friend and neighbour, said he was stunned when police arrived and arrested Mr Beeley but took no action against the gang.

Mr Whiting said: “It was unbelievable. There was about four or five of them. They were squatting up the road, and we had no end of trouble with them.

“They would just hang around outside. They wouldn’t move and stopped me coming in. They were just yobs.”

He said they were taking “running kicks” at this door, shouting they would “kill Dave, and that he couldn’t hide in there”. He said Mr Beeley was just waving the knife around to “scare them off”.

Tonight, a CPS spokesman defended the charges, insisting that the unnamed prosecutor had “considered the evidence in the case and the public interest”.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
