Good Morning Grace<quoted text>
I've said it before and I will again,
I agree with you here,
we ALL know [and you have said this too]
what ARMSTRONG is guilty of,
that he turned out to be a cheat, a 1st class liar,
a sneak etc.. we all read about it..
but, like you say, it is done & dusted..
his career is ruined before the whole world,
he got his just desserts and STILL people
are 'baying for blood'..
Interesting, it reminds me of a case here,
VERY DIFFERENT SUBJECT MATTER, granted, but,
the same in that 'the public won't let it go.
Tis about a paedophile who served every day of a LONG
sentence for his wrong doings..
when he was freed, the media and the public followed him EVERYWHERE,
they hounded him night and day, it was up for grabs,
where he lived now, where he was going to live permanently,
where he went, what he did,
on one occasion, he traveled by train,
media were at the rail stn. before he left and their media
mates were at the other end in a rural town waiting for
then he went abroad AND, yes, the media followed.
Yes, before anyone mentions it WE ALL KNOW the crime of paedophilia
but where's the point at all in someone serving a very long sentence
and not allowed to live 'any kind of life' when they emerge.
and Good Morning All
I agree wholeheartedly, that is paramount to torture, I have
heard of this happening here only recently as it happens,
word got out that there was a peodophile living in a nearby
village, within no time the whole village was outside his
house, windows broken, the man had served his time but he
wasn't going to be allowed to live in peace, he moved and
was not seen in these parts again.
Granted it is a terrible thing to molest a small child, and
anybody who has been found guilty of doing so, it is understandable
that 'an eye' should be kept open in order to prevent any further
such assault, but it has to be taken into account, that the
'authorities' considered the person to be no longer a risk to
society, that should be honoured and discretion put into play.
Delicate subject Grace, but everybody deserves a second chance.
