This story is from the Mail but it does seem to have an element of truth in it.
Brandon Bishop a thieving, burgling piece of scum, who has a string of convictions, has just been released from prison after serving just one month of an eight month sentence for burglary. He appealed against his eight month sentence on the basis that he is a single parent and his five children cannot be looked after properly by his sister who is trying to look after seven others. It therefore breached their right to a family life under the HRA.
Interestingly it is stated that while he was in prison, the children's mother looked after them at week-ends but not during the week. I assume she works. Can she not use childcare like other normal people have to.
This decision could have huge ramifications. It will only go to encourage the chav scum that infest our estates to carry on banging out children. Every time one of these people commit an offence suddenly they will claim they are their children's sole provider and carer (they know how to work the system) and a prison sentence is no longer an option.
So to all burglars/criminals the message is start banging out a few kids now or you might have to serve some porridge. We may as well give up!
