Letting Burglars Out of Prison… For the Children
Hat Tip to John Lott
When idiot, liberal, activist judges attack:
A burglar was let out of jail yesterday because locking him up breached his family’s human rights.
In a staggering judgment, the Appeal Court ruled that the rights of Wayne Bishop’s five children were more important than those of his victims or the interests of justice.
MPs said it opened the way to thousands more convicts claiming a ‘get out of jail card’ under the controversial Human Rights Act.
Article 8, the right to a family life, has repeatedly been used by foreign criminals to avoid deportation from the UK. But this is believed to be the first time it has been used to let a prisoner walk free from jail.
The rule of law means nothing in that country anymore. You could not pay me to live in this dystopian nightmare they call the UK. This is the same country where “residents in Surrey and Kent villages have been ordered by police to remove wire mesh from their windows as burglars could be injured.”
Bishop told the Mail he turned to crime because he struggled to survive on benefits. He said: ‘People need to know how hard it is for single parents. I regret getting involved in crime but I am on a low income. The benefit agency won’t help me get a job and I turned to crime.
You’re already living off the labors of your fellow citizens through the welfare state, and then you decided you were entitled to cut out the middleman and steal from them directly. Also, you’re not a single parent jackass, you’re married. Having five bastard children does not make you single, it makes you a cad. If you’re going to play the victim of society card, at least have the decency to stick to labels that actually apply to you.
They should leave me alone to live with my children in peace.
You are the one putting your children at risk. You risk their father by engaging in criminal activity yourself, and by associating with other criminals you expose your family to harm directly.
He added that he accepted he had ‘made mistakes’ but promised to turn over a new leaf.
I hope you mean that, but your chronic inability to take responsibility for your actions does not leave me feeing optimistic.
