Bits

A SOUTH Korean Christian pastor has been jailed for 18 months for having a decade-long affair with a woman whose wedding he had officiated at, a court said.

Adultery in South Korea is a criminal offence punishable by up to two years in prison, but most offenders usually receive only suspended jail terms and imprisonment is quite rare.

Gaol for adultery! Wow! Wouldn't SERCO love that.

Dr Mukesh Haikerwal was repeated beaten with baseball bats when walking home and lapsed into unconsciousness and almost died. He was one of 23 victims attacked by three young men, for no apparent reason. The attackers received 18.5 years, 16.5 years and 9.75 years. They appealed and had their sentences reduced. They could be out in 13.5, 10.5 and 7 years. They are just very bad men. It was not a crime of passion, nor as a consequence of a robbery. It was pure violence for the thrill of it. I don't think they deserve to ever be released and the world will not be a better place when they are released.

430,000 people use Melbourne's train City Loop daily, but how many want to? Many must be like me who think, dam, train is going around the loop, extending my journey time.

  1. The three psychotic animals that attacked Dr. Mukesh Haikerwal should have been locked up for a very long time or until hell freezes over at least and the key thrown a very very long way away into a volcano :-).

  2. For sure Windsmoke. What mitigating circumstances could there possibly be.
