SENTENCE: Honor dishonored

Print Article

Let me get this straight … This punk coward, William Robertson, beats a completely disabled young man so badly that he needs stitches AND has to have a testicle removed, and all he gets is a lousy 10 days in jail and a small fine? Yet on the very next page a woman mistreats her horses and gets 12 days in jail.

Even the 180 days wouldn’t be enough for this cowardly act. I wonder if this young man had been the judge’s son, brother or father if she would have been so lenient?

This coward is a disgrace to humanity and this judge is a disgrace to her profession! I guess because he was disabled, he doesn’t count as much as a horse.

Shame on them both.
