    Default Sentencing in the UK?

    22 years jail for attempted murder? Bring that Judge here please.

    In truth I have to admit that the sentence in this case is a bit over the top considering the published circumstances.

    Your thoughts?

    I agree with the sentence, if what was true though, maybe the stepdad got his karma.

    Don't be so soft - all crime should result in hanging, that would soon put a stop to it.

    Hang the victim, he's the real criminal, he got what he deserved.

    He's a shadow of a man apparently - might be hard to get the rope around his neck.
