More Scum

Another triumph for British Justice saw a hit & run driver who killed a seven-year-old boy released from a five month sentence early after serving just five weeks.

45-year-old Christopher Collins knocked down and killed Kyle McDermott as he rode his pedal cycle in September 2006. Collins drove off leaving the boy for dead and when caught a week later denied being the driver. He was jailed for five months and banned from driving for five years at Doncaster Crown Court in August after admitting perverting the course of justice, driving without due care and attention, failing to stop and failing to report an accident. But he was released five weeks later.

Three weeks after being released from prison Collins was arrested by police at the wheel of a car and has been sent back to prison to serve the rest of his sentence.

How much longer have right-minded people got to bang on about people getting proper sentences and being made to serve them before someone will actually take notice, surely there are some votes in doing something about this?
