It's not my intention to depress you my dear readers, but something has upset me considerably today, and I am having trouble coming to terms with it.
I really ought to stop reading newspapers, because these days in one way or another they only serve to upset me.
What's happened, you may be asking?
There is a bloke whose name is Adam Hewitt. He is 25 years old. In 2007 a family court judge found that Hewitt was responsible for fracturing the skull of his then girlfriends baby. The police failed to charge him when the incident first happened. They again failed to charge him despite the family court finding.
Hewitt later formed a relationship with another woman. Guess what? Her baby suffered 11 fractures and ended up in a coma with permanent brain damage.
So two babies brain damaged. Hewitts sentence? Five years! This means he will be out in 2 years. Where is the justice?
I know I shouldn't think like this, but I can't help hoping he gets a bloody good hiding in prison.
On the same day, two people got eight years each for doing a bit of gardening, and growing a few 'herbs'.
