Am I alone in finding the sentencing in serious crimes farcical ?
I applaud the announcement that the UDA man convicted of killing Richard Hamill must serve at least 17 years for his terrible crime. It’s tempting to suggest that life should mean life in cases such as these –
Moore could end up being released at my age, in his fifties. But why should he through concurrency in effect receive no punishment for the other offences of which he was found guilty? UDA man must serve at least 17yrs.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
