There is no need to be nasty, jamie.. that is not the point of my post. I AGREE with the observations Besty has made. I am not willing to accept Cantleave's offbeat comment about ignoring UK law.
I am sure the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) is still under pressure from the Public and various arms of the judiciary to bring this for re-trial.
Besty, since we are talking background here. I know that jook' knows you, we have spoken together on our mobiles and enjoyed putting the worlds to right. Equally I have issues with one of the names in your Rogue's Mall on the Branch Committee and was part of the Finchley congregation 1979-1982.
Due process of Law has been carried out... I have not read the legal Bundle have you, Besty? The CPS is usually savage in obtaining its convictions.. justice will prevail, if indeed an error of judgment has been made. Meanwhile, all the "experts" are of the opinion that this man is contrite and able to mingle in public places under watchful eye. Of course, it is read Besty, that he will not be allowed to wander alone and unaccompanied in any arena where children are involved. UK law cracked down heavily in this area after the Soham girls were murdered by that Caretaker Freak.
All that aside, I come back to my original concern for Juke' and his family... if the Predator does remain the threat that many here have judged him to be (and he may well be).. I would hate for Jook' to bring himself and his bairns into the limelight and sights of such evil scum. That is all.
Now, if anyone here wants to lodge a protest to the heart of this issue here are two addresses for you to write to. At the same time you might like to ask about the compliance of the JW Elders with the due process of law.. Satisfy yourselves on this case.. as I have.
Chief Constable Colin Port, Avon and Somerset Constabulary, Valley Road, Portishead, BS20 8QJ
Crown Prosecution Service, Froomsgate House, Rupert Street, Bristol, BS1 2QJ
I assume the folks who are so vocal here will want to go straight for the jugular and file protest. Now you have the tools to do it.
All the best, and YES... I am concerned the Jook protects his little ones from the evil eye that is now local to him. Spare a thought for those in recovery on my doorstep and the hand holding that has had to be done because of the beast that Is that was that.....???
I look forward to a retrial and review of this case also.
PS: If you want to chew a bone on JW handling of another case here in Bristol look up the case of EUNICE SPRY. That case churned my stomach just as much, and it was brought before the Justices around the same time.
