What sort of country Â jails a soldier for 18 months for keeping a trophy just like 90% of his mates? Â Admittedly this was a firearm. Â Naughty boy should have had a slap on the wrist. Â It’s bad enough we do stupid things like this sentence – but all sorts of bastards are getting off scot-free. Â We have bankers getting away with much worse, lying bureaucrats, politicians and fifty shades of scum bullying and terrorising the vulnerable.
The appeal is on Thursday. Â Let’s hope the judge shows some decency, sense and seasonal goodwill. Â There are cops all over the country more deserving of jail time than Danny. Â Some of them hide behind Help for Hero badges. Â These prats have lied, not investigated, brushed all sorts under the carpet and been a much greater problem than any squaddie with a trophy. Â We haven’t got a justice system. Â I’d volunteer to do Danny’s jail time if this was possible. Â He has two young kids.
