A child-killer in Britain is suing the Ministry of Justice for 1 million pounds, claiming it’s unfair that he must languish in prison for so long.
Back in 1981, twelve year old Karl Doyle battered and strangled John Martin McLean, who was just 8. He was convicted of murder but was released in 1990, just nine years after his heinous act.
Alas, not only is Doyle a monster, he’s also a moron because after getting early release, he found himself back behind bars in 2005 for committing a petrol bomb attack, this time getting a prison sentence of three years and four months.
Doyle is shocked that he hasn’t seen the light of day yet. Surely in his estimation, if he only did nine years for murdering a child, a petrol bomb attack is worth, what, maybe three weeks?
So he’s moving ahead with Plan B and suing the Ministry of Justice, noting in his statement of claim that his sentence is “manifestly excessive (and) unjust.”
But by keeping him in prison, could it be that the justice system is course-correcting itself for a very bad decision it made in 1990 when this thug was first released?
