Shock News : Lethal Metal Object Used In UK Violent Crime

December 13, 2012

A SHOPLIFTER knocked down a policeman before speeding at 70mph on the wrong side of the road through red lights as she tried desperately to evade capture, a court heard.

Mother-of-two Mary Togher was trying to escape with clothes worth £300 she had taken from a branch of Matalan.

After hitting the police sergeant, flipping him on to her bonnet, she drove on to a pavement and sped off, with two smashed windows, at one point speeding towards oncoming traffic as she ran a red light.

Heroin addict Togher, of Martock Road, Bedminster, was jailed for a total of 11 months yesterday after pleading guilty to theft, dangerous driving and assault with intent to resist arrest at an earlier hearing.

Judge Ian Grainger said her actions were “exceedingly dangerous” and that she had used the car as a “lethal weapon”.

    Typical of british juges. She tries to kill a police officer, then tried to kill a number of motorists and pedestrians so the judge gives a packet of sweets and a rap on the hand. Pathetic idiot.

    How many infants must die because careless car owners left them unattended in the back seat?

    “Twenty-three children have died of hyperthermia in cars in 14 states this year and eight of the deaths occurred in the first week of August. Nearly 40 children die this way each year, according to Kids and Cars.”

    Nothing has changed. In 1972, someone who stole a car belonging to a friend of a friend of mine, was also stoned on methedrine & drink, knocked down and killed a girl friend (as in a girl and a friend); got 18 months.

      18 months is a slap on the wrist. My sister is a police officer. She once arrested a guy who said right to her face, “I’m a career criminal … I have rights”.
