A woman killed her neighbourâ€™s ten-week-old kitten by cooking it in a microwave.
Gina Robins, 31, put the pet inside the oven after a row with its owner Sarah Knutton, and then sent her a text which read: â€˜The cat? Karma.â€™
A court heard yesterday that the pair had argued several days before, but Miss Knutton agreed to let Robins use her microwave to heat up a jar of baby food. THIS THING HAS A CHILD???!!!!?!!?!?
She told magistrates she heardÂ a loud â€˜poppingâ€™ sound and then a â€˜horrendous screeching noiseâ€™ come from her kitchen before finding the horrific consequences.
Words fail me… I am constantly surprised by the level of savagery human beings are prepared to wreak on each other and other animals.
This woman is a savage, a primitive savage-she is most fortunate that I am not in charge of her punishment…I would be instructing the court to book an industrial microwave…
Speaking of savages…
The youngest child to testify in a British criminal court has been praised for his bravery after his vital evidence helped convict the man who stamped on him.
Daniel Joyce, 29, was jailed for attacking the boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, when he was just two years and five months old – leaving him needing emergency surgery.Â
Builder Joyce denied the assault but a jury of six women and five men found him guilty after listening as the boy gave his evidence aged just four.
Sentencing Joyce to 13 years in prison at Bradford Crown Court today, Judge Jonathan Rose said: ‘It seems to me you are a coward, not least when one compares your conduct against the bravery of that little boy.’
Describing the assault as ‘vicious, cowardly and reprehensible’, the judge added: ‘There are no circumstances known to man which could possibly justify or even mitigate this horrendous attack on a defenceless and innocent baby.’
Of course the judge COULD have jailed him for life as sec 18 assault carries that maximum…
But when you see judges letting people away with community sentences for having hundreds of indecent images of children, what were the chances?
What is it with judges and child sex offenders and child related crimes?
I often think that the world might be better off without human beings.
I mean, it wouldn’t be polluted; overheated; over resourced and some other species could have their chance…
One thing is for certain: the level of brutality would drop sharply.
