Many think that Edward Woollard's Sentence is Extreme...


In today’s London Metro and on the letters page two letters which I found pleasing and uplifting like parting clouds revealing the blue of a summer sky", you know just one of those times when you think joyously to yourself thank god there are descent people in the world. So I have decided because it’s important to reproduce those letters on the blog with the heading that the paper gave the letters.

Sentence is extreme

I think it is shocking that Edward Woollard has been jailed for 32 months (Metro, Wed). I do not excuse his actions as they were very dangerous. However, not a single person was hurt by him.

And yet the Labour MP convicted of expenses fraud only got 18 months in prison. If I worked in a shop and stole all the money from the tills, I’d be in prison for a lot longer than 18 months.

And

I’m absolutely astounded the fire extinguisher-hurling student has been jailed for 32 months.

I don’t condone what he did but there are sex offenders in my local area who have been released after serving little of their two-year sentences for the grooming and abuse of a teenage girl. What a complete joke.

The sentence was not harsh enough, the thug and that is all he is, should have been charged with attempted murder and banged up for 5 years at least. Students are the foundation of our society, the makings of Woollard would see those foundations crack, he deserves all he gets and more!
