Superb 1-2 For Scots Judge

A straight right to the victim, then a magnificent left to the bereaved.

Lady Leeona Dorrian, a civilised type of judge, fond of skiing and French wine, raised the odd eyebrow last year when she sentenced a woman to three years probation for kicking a grandmother to death in a row over a parking space.

The sentence caused outrage in Scotland. 30,000 people signed a petition condemning the sentence. The Crown appealed and the killer was sentenced to four years.

Judge Dorrian has been known to jail killers for as much as five years - if they're drunk drivers involved in a crash which kills their passenger.

The victim's husband had also been assaulted by the killer's partner.

“I was getting beaten until another man pulled him off me. Then I looked over and saw Ann slumped beside a fence at the side of the road.

“She was purple with bruises and I couldn’t find her pulse so I yelled, ‘You’ve killed my wife’. But he just sneered, ‘That’ll be right’ and walked away.”

Judge Dorrian deferred sentence on this charming chap for six months. The full majesty of the law has now descended. Judge Dorrian has 'admonished' him. After all, he hasn't beaten anyone up for six months that they know of.

As all the judges are unelected and thus unaccountable to the population they are supposed to serve. I would suggest some sort of table or forum that would name and shame the judges who are not doing what the law requires. Making their name known may get them some exposure on the MSM

From the bbc article "He then raised his arms in a peace sign". Is that the peace sign that involves making a V with one's fingers?

Lynch the bitch.

Certainly not, anonymous.

She deserves a fair trial (for treason against Her Majesty and the Queen's peace) before the full weight of the law ensures that Ms Dorrian ends like all who challenge the fundamental laws of our society - in an iron coffin, with spikes on the inside.

I prefer real Scots Law. A radical weaver is on trial and defends himself by saying that he'd done and said nothing that hadn't been done or said by Our Lord. "Much guid it did him" says the judge "he was hingit too."
