13 years on from 2002 is, well, 2015. And it was in 2002 that the murderer of Glynn Ellis (I never use a murderer’s actual name as they forfeit the use of their original name the moment they kill) was convicted to life imprisonment.
Now, to any normal human being, the word ‘life’ means, well, life. That’s until death.
Not to the legal profession of course. For some obscure reason, ‘life’ doesn’t actually mean life as we normal folk know it. It means ‘life’ with a minimum term. In the case of Glynn Ellis’ murderer, the minimum term was 13 years. So, life suddenly doesn’t mean life, but just 13 years. That’s no time at all for the brutal and deliberate running over of Glynn Ellis with his own car by his murderer who wanted it and wasn’t going to be stopped from having it.
Glynn Ellis’ life stopped and his family and loved ones suffered and still suffer from his murder. Their lives were changed forever. Meanwhile, Glynn’s murderer, a man with 47 previous convictions, just suffered a mere inconvenience of a decade or so before he was able to get back on track being his evil self.
The wet do-gooder controlled wimpish authorities saw nothing wrong with days out for this murderer. And it was on day release that this murderer decided to knock unconscious a student, Ross Stephenson, who he decided he didn’t like. This was in the early hours at a Liverpool McDonald’s. Ross also lost two teeth and fractured a third. All because the murderer didn’t like him.
With Ross in agony on the floor, the murderer calmly queued for his food.
So, the murderer had created another victim.
Ok, at least he didn’t murder Ross Stephenson, but why was this murderer allowed out instead of being behind bars doing actual ‘life’?
He’s obviously dangerous and society needs to be protected from him. Mr Stephenson should sue those who allowed the murderer out on day release for endangerment. The do-gooders have to take some of the blame for a violent thug being allowed to roam the streets looking for more prey. If they were lion keepers who’d allowed a lion to roam the streets attacking people instead of keeping it safely caged, they’d be liable and they’d be prosecuted and they’d be sacked.
It’s time for those who allow murderers to roam freely to be sacked and prosecuted.
