killer rapist demands rights & compensation. idiot judge says, okay.

Exchanged some email with Drew last night, in which I mentioned that there was always something insane to write about in this politically correct insane place.
And I don’t expect things to be much different back home either. However, I didn’t expect to find this one so soon.

So far, I don’t think this has gone all the way and received unreserved approval. Yet.

This does fit the world upside down thing for sure.

Monster who strangled girl gets payout… because jail harmed HIS human rights: Rapist says he ‘wasn’t given rehabilitation’

Arthur Duncan raped and strangled Linda Bull in 1970, when he was 18
He is serving a life term, but claimed has had no access to treatment
A court agreed - ruling that his human rights were breached
Victim’s family said decision to back claim was a ‘kick in the teeth’

A convicted murderer and rapist is in line for compensation after a court ruled that his human rights were breached when he was not given rehabilitation treatment in jail.

Arthur Duncan, who raped and strangled Linda Bull, claimed he had no access to sexual offenders’ rehabilitation programmes for a period of five years.

His victim’s family described the decision to back his claim as a ‘kick in the teeth’.

One of the UK’s longest-serving prisoners, Duncan raped Miss Bull, 22, then strangled her with her tights in 1970, when he was 18.

He is serving a life term and has repeatedly been refused parole to protect the public since the murder in Andover, Hampshire. But, to the horror of his victim’s family, he is now in line for a payout.

‘My parents’ lives were left in devastation after losing their daughter in such a horrific way and they were never the same,’ said Shelagh Paynter, Miss Bull’s sister. ‘We were never offered counselling or compensation, yet the criminal seems to have the help.

‘We aren’t asking for anything, but our lives have been in turmoil. We are the victims here and we didn’t get anything, so why should he? It’s disgusting.’

Mrs Paynter, 62, a retired social worker who lives in Dorset, said criminals who commit such heinous crimes should forfeit their human rights.

‘We have all suffered because of what happened and we will continue to suffer but hearing that he is in line for a payout is just a kick in the teeth,’ she said.

Duncan claimed his rights under article five of the European Convention on Human Rights, which protects liberty and security, were breached when he had no chance to access sexual offenders’ programmes between April 2007 and July last year.

Officials argued that there had been no failures and that progress through rehabilitation was ‘very much a matter of judgment for the prison authorities’.

They said fantasies involving bondage and non-consensual sex offending had been ‘an ongoing issue’. But judge Lord Glennie ruled in Duncan’s favour last month.

He said officials had ‘simply failed to provide him with programmes and courses which they themselves recognised were a necessary part of his rehabilitation’.

He also said they were necessary ‘to enable him to make progress towards having an effective review before the parole board’.

The judge said a further hearing should take place before a final decision is made.

  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

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
