Two Facebook Riot Inciters Get 4 Years Jail Time

Effectively this blog is pretty much in perpetual hibernation. However, I would be remiss to not mention the riots that occurred in London at least for the context of how ridiculous our justice system is in our Province. As my headline states, two men By the names “Jordan Blackshaw, 20, and Perry Sutcliffe-Keenan, 22, were jailed for four years each for inciting the disorder on Facebook despite both being of previous good character.” as stated by The Telegraph. The full story can be read here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/facebook/8705212/Facebook-riot-inciters-among-those-to-get-toughest-jail-terms-yet.html

So exactly when did the London riots occur? A few weeks ago? The Vancouver Riots occurred over two months ago and despite 37 people having turned themselves in, no charges have been put forth to Counsel. In Britain, the rioters and looters have already been put thru trial and sentenced. In Vancouver the reason given as to why no charges have yet been laid is because there is too much evidence in photos, videos and eye witnesses. WTF!!!???

The judges involved in sentencing the rioters in London have stated that they wanted to send a clear message to would be rioters and looters in the future. In our judicial system we’ve sent the message that has everyone involved laughing at how it’s all turned out and how nothing will really be done to them all. This in turn has sent a message that given the consequences and ability of our judicial system to prevent this from happening again, at least in Canada we simply don’t have the stomach to even effectively punish those who commit crimes.

Where are you now you bleeding hearts with your sanctimonious berating that our judicial system will take care of those involved?

  1. This is exactly why blogs like this one are needed. Our justice system is much too slow and inefficient.
