law and disorder Update

You will excuse me I hope, for being so silly as to assume with no proof at hand, that the obligation of government is first, to protect the law-abiding from the lawless.  Or perhaps that’s only second on the list.
Lately, I have come around to thinking that maybe there isn’t any list at all. Or, perhaps there was a list but it has been stolen.  Has anyone seen such a list lately? 
I quit looking for one.  I’ve given up.  I believe that list has been a myth.
We’d stand a better chance of finding Excalibur than we would finding justice. 
And you don’t need me to point out a few examples, although I will anyway.

How many times should a person be, not just arrested, but convicted in a court of law for multiple crimes, before authorities say, “enough”.
How is it that a train mad fanatic in New York, USA, has managed to get himself arrested thirty times for the same offence?  And freed time and again to do it again.
Namely … steal trains.  Stole em and drove off .  Funny actually.  Why not just give the guy his own train?
There’s talk of a movie based on his compulsion. This is an extreme case I know. It’s still a crime however and the question still remains, how many times?

I have always loved trains.  Al Collins at KFI used to play tracks off LP’s of different trains, huffing and puffing and whistles and bells.  I used to have an LP like that too.
In the 40’s my mom and I crossed country from CT. to CA., and the lullaby of the rails would put me to sleep. Clickety Clack all the way to The City of Angles.
But I never wanted to steal a train.
I guess I just lacked imagination.

I guess it’s a measure of tolerance.  How far should tolerance extend before we just lose all meaning of the terms, Law and Order and Public Safety.
The “Train Man” as he is called, is pretty much on the lighter side of the news.

What is far more disturbing, discouraging and yes, even frightening, is the oft reported other, darker side.  That side where anything that can be called justice, is not to be seen.

How many excuses and how many crimes are, okay?

A nineteen year old with an already very long record and who is referred to, as they do in these PC days as “Mr.”, drove a stolen pick up truck into a policeman while being chased.  The teen, Mr. Williams if you will.

He had only been released from jail three weeks earlier, for stealing a truck and leading the police on a high speed chase, which ended when he crashed the stolen vehicle.

It was alleged that he drove the truck at 50mph straight at officer Dave Phillips, who was in the process of trying to lay down steel traps.

Well, the jury in an OJ moment cleared the teen of murder, returning a verdict of manslaughter instead.  The dupes bought his story that that he did not intend to kill or even injure Officer Phillips.

During the trial, it was found that according to testimony, the perp, Clayton Williams, had been hooked on Cannabis since the age of six.  All the usual excuses were used.  Poor lad never attended school but over time, managed to acquire 33 convictions, prior to this latest life destroying episode.

Would it be unreasonable to assume that someone, someplace should have seen a light go on?  After the 5th arrest? Or the 10th ?  How about the 20th arrest?
But no.

Williams was given 20 years in prison. Even if he served it all, and what are the chances of that?  It is not enough.

Oh, I damn near forgot to mention it.

Mr. Williams had a friend along for the ride that fateful night. 
30 yr old co-defendant Philip Stuart, with a record of 57 offenses.

PC Dave Phillips, age 34.  Husband, son, father of two.  In 20 years he will still be dead, and his family still broken.

Because the lights weren’t on.  If they were, nobody was looking.

UPDATE
and he will be out in less than ten years. justice ?  really?  don’t think so.

After jurors cleared Williams of murdering PC Phillips it can be revealed that:

· Jurors were not told about Williams’ serial offending

· They did not know the passenger, a fellow burglar, told police that seconds before hitting the officer, Williams said: ‘Watch this!’

· The killer told jurors he cried afterwards and felt ‘sick’ when he heard of the death, but he had actually called his grandmother to say: ‘I’m going away. I’ve killed a bizzie.’

· Council workers were tasked with stopping Williams going off the rails but failed to hold meetings with him be

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  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
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

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.
