coz I was a bit worried after that 'via' thread
i wonder at what point 'bomb hoax' becomes the choice you see wisest.
Just jump in that canoe and keep on paddling...
He's an idiot, not a danger to society.
Just slap the maximum community penalty on him or something.
like all hoaxes, there is an untold story of anyone who might have needed the emergency services at the time when they were all dealing with the hoax.
and if he was a serial offender (or did it more than just once), I'd be very happy to see him put away.
But is he going to learn much from prison? Would much rather he contributed something back to society. Scrubbing graffiti for 240 hours or something.
but 12 months in the slammer? sheeit boeeey.
Did he just book a venue and then they didn't bother doing anything else re. the paperwork? That's brilliantly lackadaical if so...
its inappropriate.....12 months community service maybe, or some form of public giveback, but 12 months inside? I can see the proper crims now, laughing and offering to show him how to properly be one of them.
plus, it's a deterrent isn't it? he could have gotten away with it
You cant put someone away for a year for being a chump
3 hots and a cot seems pretty attractive
although presumably still unmarried. So all's well that ends well I suppose.
No net impact
if he had just admitted to his missus that he cocked up the booking forms, they may have split up. Or worse, she wouldn't stop fucking going on about it for the rest of his life. This way she may even feel sorry for him and not want to bring it up again. Result.
just couldn't book the venue again until November next year. I hear he's living in a caravan in Cleethorpes
I think I'd rather be butt-fucked by Big Ronnie from D-Wing
he pleaded guilty AND he showed remorse AND his fiancee stuck with him - all mitigating factors. custody seemed inevitable given the offence, but 12 months does seem excessive. anyway, FOR NOW people still serve only half their sentence in prison and the rest on licence so he'll be aaaaalright unless he does it again somehow. god can you imagine.
