If you read the stories above on how others are let off in this joke of a justice system it's not really a surprise. What is it going to take to wake the judges up to the reality of society then, when one of them is shot in the backside?

Judge Douglas field said "His co-defendant entered a plea of guilty and I have instructed that he's going to get full credit for his early guilty plea."


Even though the entire crime will have been captured on CCTV and is, realistically, undeniable in any case.

Anything to ensure the armed criminals are treated as unduly leniently as possible.
