Criminals come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes, just because you uphold the law, doesn’t mean that you are a decent citizen. The examples below may shock you.

The media is slowly wising up to the fact that lawyers can be a corrupt breed. This is nothing new. In Victorian times, Lawyers and barristers were regarded with suspicion and contempt. They were seen as money grabbing thieves.

CrimeshareTV would like to emphasise that not all lawyers are corrupt. But a great many are. The public need to be aware of this.

Loss of confidence in courts taking legal system into dangerous terrain

THE Director of Public Prosecutions has given warning that the legal system will stray into “dangerous territory” if people feel justice cannot be achieved through the courts. However, the widespread perception is that the law and the legal profession have already lost the confidence of victims and the general public.

The British Crime Survey 2005-06 reflects this view: 80 per cent of respondents thought the system was fair to the accused, but only 36 per cent were confident that it met the needs of victims.

The widely held opinion is that criminals receive soft sentences, paedophiles are pitied, foreign terrorists are given vast sums in legal aid and illegal immigrants who commit crimes are never deported.

Ordinary people who stand up for themselves and their families are either punished or become victims. Perhaps worst of all, the rights of such victims are ignored.



Last month a judge was heavily criticised after sentencing a paedophile, who had repeatedly sexually assaulted an 18-month-old baby boy, to four years in jail. Judge Simon Hammond, sitting at Leicester Crown Court, said that Christopher Downes, 24, needed help for his “undoubted problems”.

Michele Elliott, of the charity Kidscape, said: “There is something wrong when a man could admit to sexually abusing an 18-month-old baby regularly and be out of prison in two years.”

The concern of campaigners is outstripped by the anger of the families of victims.

Last month the family of Natalie Glasgow described as laughable the sentence imposed on Mark Hambleton, an electrician whose van hit and killed the 17-year-old girl as she walked home from a party. Hambleton was given a 100-hour community service order and banned from driving for a year.

The dead girl’s father, Paul, said: “The law says it doesn’t matter whether you hit a teenage girl or a lamppost in terms of the charge of failing to report an accident. That can’t be right. It must be changed.”

The apparent downgrading of victims’ rights, compared with those of the defendant, also causes anger.

The defence of Kamel Bourgass, the Algerian terrorist trained by al-Qaeda who is serving life for murder and conspiring to make ricin toxins, cost the public purse £996,934 in legal aid.

The family of DC Stephen Oake, who was stabbed to death by Bourgass in 2003, received only £13,000 from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

Judges reply that the legislative straitjacket is the cause of many of the current problems.

The case of Craig Sweeney attracted huge attention. Sweeney was jailed for life by Cardiff Crown Court for abducting and indecently assaulting a three-year-old girl but Judge John Griffith Williams cut his minimum tariff in recognition of his guilty plea. It meant that Sweeney could be considered for parole in five years.

As The Times reported last month, John Reid, the Home Secretary, said that this was unduly lenient. Vera Baird, QC, the Constitutional Affairs Minister, had to apologise after saying that the judge was wrong. The judiciary rallied round the judge, saying he had followed the law to the letter.

Both Victim Support and Nacro, the crime reduction charity, say that perceived soft sentencing and the treatment of victims are separate issues. Paul Cavadino, chief executive of Nacro, said: “The sentencing in this country is harsher than most other Western Europe countries. And we have the highest prison population in Western Europe, both in absolute numbers and as a proportion of the population.

“I don’t accept that you can measure how supportive a criminal justice system is to victims by the sentences given out.

“It is not in the interests of victims to pass sentences that don’t reduce future offences.”

A spokesman for Victim Support said: “Victims want a system whereby we deal with criminals properly and we give out punishments that are an effective deterrent. Our experience is that even if victims are happy with the result in court, the happiness is short-lived because their lives have still been altered.”

Liz Jones said that she lost her faith in the criminal justice system when a teenager who smashed her cheekbone avoided a jail sentence last month. Dexter Hungwa, 16, attacked Ms Jones, a headmistress, because she had asked him to shut a door. Ms Jones, 51, said: “At first I was frightened because I thought he could turn up at any time. The experience was horrendous but when I found out that he had been given a referral order, I was really, really angry.”

  • HOW TO CALL THE POLICE  (True Story)

    George Phillips of  Mississippi was going up to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window.

    George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

    He phoned the police, who asked "Are any of those people in your house" and he said no.

    Then they said, that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply stay in his house, lock his doors and an officer would be along when available.

    George said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.

    "Hello I just called you few seconds ago because there were people in my shed.  Well, you don't have to worry about them now cause I've just shot them all".

    Then he hung up.

    Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips residence.

    Of course, the police caught the burglars red-handed.

    One of the Policemen said to George:

    "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

    George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

    These are for real... Promise!

    Waste of tax payers money!

    A British man has been arrested and threatened with 14 years in jail for "harbouring" his Brazilian fiancee at his home in Kent. Dave Taylor, 48, spent 15 months on bail as he fought to clear his name. But hours before he was due in court, prosecutors dropped all charges -- leaving taxpayers with a bill of at least £50,000.
    Today he spoke of his anger at the ordeal he had been put through. Legal experts and race relations chiefs questioned how the case had been allowed to carry on for so long. Critics claimed that the effort put into prosecuting Mr Taylor was disproportionate when the Government estimates there are 430,000 migrants living illegally in Britain.
    Mr Taylor -- an entertainer, who uses the stage name Rockin’ Dave Taylor -- married Brazilian nurse, Rosyane Costa-Ferreira this summer. They had been living together in the UK for more than 6 years. He said he had been left thousand of pounds out of pocket, and had been put on medication for depression as a result of the wrangle. He said: "My professional and home life have been thoroughly disrupted. I have been under severe stress. I have waded through hundreds of pages of jargon presented by the prosecution and spent months going through documents in preparation for the trial. "If my experience reflects the standard of the British justice system, I think it leaves very much to be desired."
    Immigration law expert Nicola Appleton of solicitors Lewis Silkin said: "I'm astonished that it got to this stage. It does seem an enormous waste of taxpayers' money."
    Lord Ouseley, the former chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality, said the case left him "depressed and despondent about the state of the management and administration in the Home Office's immigration and nationality services". He said: "I am staggered how anyone can penetrate this incompetent bureaucracy."
    Police arrested Mr Taylor and ransacked his home near Herne Bay, Kent, in a dawn raid in July 2004. They also arrested and deported his fiancee, Rosyane Costa-Ferreira.
    Mr Taylor, who has performed at exotic venues worldwide, including Japan, Hong Kong and Russia, was held 2 days in a police cell. He claims he was told in his initial police interview that he was suspected of masterminding a major people-smuggling operation. Documents seized from his home proved swiftly that the only foreign national he had travelled with was Rosyane Costa-Ferreira, who had regularly accompanied him to gigs on the Continent.
    Yet he was charged under the 1971 Immigration Act on two counts of facilitating her illegal entry to the UK and knowingly harbouring her once she was in the country.
    Mr Taylor claims that a visa in Miss Costa-Ferreira's passport would have proved that she had permission to be in the UK. But the passport is alleged to have ‘gone missing’ among documents seized by police. It has never been recovered.
    His own lawyers advised him to plead guilty and accept a prison term of around four years, instead of fighting the case and risking a much longer sentence.
    This issue has been taken up on behalf of Mr Taylor by Julian Brazier, MP for Canterbury, who says he is appalled that a British subject could be treated in this manner.
    Mr Taylor, who has played with such celebrities as Bill Haley and Chuck Berry, insists Rosyane -- now his wife -- was in Britain legally at all times.
    His wife, has now been given permission to live in the UK by the same people who prosecuted this case, - namely the Immigration service. The CPS has admitted that the decision to drop the charges, the day before the case was due to be heard in Canterbury Crown Court, was taken on "public interest" grounds.
    Mr Taylor's Legal Aid assistance cost taxpayers more than £50,000. The final bill for taxpayers, including CPS costs, could be well in excess of £100,000.

    "I'd give my right arm..."
    A lawyer defending a man accused of burglary tried this creative defense: "My client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few trifling articles. His arm is not himself, and I fail to see how you can punish the whole individual for an offence committed by his limb." "Well put," the judge replied. "Using your logic, I sentence the defendant's arm to one year's imprisonment. He can accompany it or not, as he chooses." The defendant smiled. With his lawyer's assistance he detached his artificial limb, laid it on the bench, and walked out.
