Why has the justice system granted Sean Kitchener bail after murdering Barry McLean on the 28/05/2011
Sean Kitchener was charged with murder and was attending college on the day that the McLean family were burying their son 10/06/2011, this is so disrespectful and an absolute disgrace from our so called justice system.
What kind of message does this send out to others?
So Sean Kitchener has commited the worst crime imaginable and he is allowed to walk the streets of Fife...who is next?
think if you read your way through this then you'll get your answer you friend that wishes to remain anonymous!!!!

to all who think sean was smug in the picture outside court, that is NOT a smug smile but one of relief. relief that this whole ordeal is over for the parents of barry and himself. if he really had no remorse dont you think he would be smug enough to parade himself along burntisland high street? wouldnt he post the news all over facebook and rub it in everyones faces that he is a free man?? wouldnt he be out celebrating and bragging how he got away with it? NO he hasnt done either of these things because he too is a human being, one full of regret and remorse and i assure u there is nothing smug about that man.
he doesnt walk along burntisland high street cos hes a chicken shit and he know his self he deserves to be in jail.

Dear all,

After reading the Court's findings, the jurors reports & evidence provided to the court for this.

Sean could never have been tried for murder, therefore he has been released as he did not commit murder, it was, sadly, self defense. The Procurator Fiscal made the initial mistake of pushing for murder, whereby it should have been manslaughter and Sean would have served time inside for it.

However "Barry McLean, accompanied by his uncle and younger brother made their way to Sean Kitchener's flat where the alleged attack occurred". Both statements from the uncle and brother confirm this. After what was to "speak to" Sean after "a fray" the night before.

There's not enough room to actually re-type the whole report out, however, from the above alone.

1) Sean should be in prison for manslaughter, he did kill someone, murder them with intent, no.
2) The McLean's were clearly going to Sean's on the night for more than a "chat"
3) The current involvement by the McLean family in the 'choose life, not a knife' campaign & 'justice for Barry' is somewhat backwards as this happened in the home of Sean, not out on the streets.
4) If any of us were in our home, when three men turn up at your door, aggressively, you will always take the first defensive object you can to defend yourself. The outcome may not always be proportionate to the threat so the only way to prevent the worst happening is by ensuring you're not creating the situation in the first place.

So, conclusion...

It's shocking that someone has died and that there's now a child without his dad & that the justice system doesn't allow for retrial under a different type. Sean should be in prison for this crime but as manslaughter.

I have read all the depraved messages on this site about my son who was mudered at the hands of sean kitchener and i am shocked that those passing comment against my son cannot see the truth...
sean kitchener chose to select an 8" knife and hide it behind his back before answering the door..he then told Barry that he was going to put him to sleep for good, and he did...i was on my kness beside my dying son trying to assist the paramedic to save him, but i knew that he had passed...i had Barry's blood on my hands from the wound which was inflicted by kitchener..how do you all think we feel even over two years down the line...anon 26 and other small minded people do not have a clue as regards to what has happened..you were not there so how can you pass comment...kitchener needs to tell the truth as he told so many lies to save his own skin, but KARMA will prevail....believe me it will....

Please sit down with kitchener and ask him regarding these imaginary weapons...three men and all these weapons but kitchener had not one injury...wake up and smell the coffee...kitchener lied through his teeth..
He used the word "Poked" only to reduce the severity of his actions, because he knew he had committed the worst crime imaginable..he called for an ambulance so if he was supposed to be in fear of his life then why did he not call the police? To many lies and questions still requiring answers....kitchener murdered our son nobody else so he should have been accountable...we will get justice

Oh your shocked are you? I'm in complete disbelief you are still trying to paint your son as a saint. Both your sons are just as bad as Sean. You were not there either so how can you know exactly what went on, do not beleive all of Bobby/Craig's lies. I'm sure there are many aspects of that boys life you do not know about. He may not have did the deed but he ended Barry's life, torn yours apart too and yet he's painted as a victim while Sean has to live with this forever. Wise up old man.

Why were your sons and brother in law at mr kitcheners door with at least a tyre iron and a sock full of golf balls in the first place mr maclean. Sorry for your loss I have 2 sons myself and would be asking them why they went near someones home in the first place. Plus your younger son had threatened mr kitchener in the st earlier that day with the same tyre iron!

I have been reading a lot of the comments on this page from small minded people who are supporting Sean Kitchener who murdered my son with an 8" knife.... and don't you forget that he concealed the knife behind his back when he answered his front door....he stabbed my son the n exited his flat via a window, so if he was so scared why did he not exit the window instead of answering the front door? Does the word INTENT wring any alarm bells in your empty head? Just remember that he took from me and i will take back.
Doors are opening so be prepared.

If he knows he deserves to be in jail then why did he not tell the truth? He lied about weapons and he knows it...weapons never existed from day one. Why did he not take the stand at the trial tell me that...guilt and lies...just a lying murderer like his brother....but remenber this he took from me and i will take back, so pass that around the Kitchener family....no remorse from him or any of them....Alan McLean
The parades will continue for as long as it takes...will keep you in the media for what you have done to our son.
