This makes sense….. NOT !!!
- 2 teenage delinquents damage a cross and write sexual and rascist comments in prayer books at Blackburn Cathedral.
- They are sentenced for this criminal act and the JP (chair of the bench) in his summation said ‘normal people would think that you were scum’
- The clerk of the court chastised the JP for use of inappropriate language and encouraged the parent of one of the delinquents to make a formal complaint.
So does common sense prevail …… Nope.
The mother complains, The JP is now unable to chair the bench until this nonsense is resolved.
In my view, the clerk overreacted and certainly overstepped the mark. The JP certainly was reflecting the views of the wider public.
Already a parent of one of the miscreants has supported the views of the JP and I applaud the fact that he has made this view known. So many parents take the view that the own “little johnny” can do no wrong.
We need a few more like this JP. (Full Story)
