Huntley deserves nothing other than the squeeze of an index finger, and the bliss of not knowing the expanding magnum that ends his life.
He is now suing for around £100,000, no doubt with legal aid. Yet our wonderful legal system is not so clear on the “rights” of Ian Tomlinson’s family, or many victims of antisocial criminals and others failed by our agencies, or whole communities blighted by Council ‘allocation policies’ and other wonderful practices that lead to violent, nuisance scum and paedophiles being dumped on their victims (thus protecting rich people and saving prison costs).
The few of our MPs and Lords being prosecuted for obvious thieving are spending lots more legal aid on spurious legal drongo making more lawyers and judges rich whilst doing nothing for most of us other than make us sick. We see high profile libel cases over nothing, mad Egyptians with conspiracy theories and other weird examples littering our courts.
Huntley, scalded and knifed, was probably better protected than any of the victims living with dire social services and police protection. This won’t do. One of the reasons Huntley can sue is that his suit won’t produce a flood of others. To give turds like this ‘more rights’ than decent people is ludicrous.
