The Squat

Geeklawyer’s temporary chambers


However much Geeklawyer may whinge we do at least have some semblence of a system of fair trials. For those in Afghanistan the story is different: a 4 minute trial with no right to defend oneself or appeal followed by a death sentence.

Even sicko Blair wouldn’t have turned our justice system into this: but only because he’d never have succeeded; not that he didn’t want to.

And what are those cunts on about at the Sun with their campaign for the death sentence to be reinstated? Oh yea Geeklawyer remembers, cheap publicity gimmicks. Geeklawyer is all in favour of the death penalty for Sun journos but no-one else (ooh, is that calling for their death too? 🙂

  1. Jeezus GL – that’s a bit inequitable even for you. How can you justify excluding Daily Mail journos like that?

  3. And the interesting thing about those who call for the death penalty is that they actually would want to choose who could die. For if you said to them, “Has it occurred to you that it would apply to your sons if they got in with a bad crowd?” they would shrink back in horror that it could be universally applied.

    It is of course Rebekah fuckwit Wade’s gimmick to ingratiate herself with the Murdoch.

  4. that’s why some poeple hate human rights – because even the people we don’t like get them.

  5. Presumably the Sun takes the view that it is better for 100 innocent men to die, than for one guilty man to live.

  6. Let’s be honest. There is no such thing as an innocent accused man. If they were innocent why did the police charge them? Do people imagine the police have nothing better to do?

    To paraphrase Judge Turpin: “Even if those men have been hung for something they didn’t do, it’s to to be sure they’ve done something to merit a hanging.”

    I love the Sun, it’s almost like a newspaper, but with pictures of breasts.
