Rot in Hell Bridger
It intrigues me that these people feel compelled to invent a alternative version of events which is so implausible it borders on comical.Posted 4 years ago
Surely if you don’t want to fess-up and tell the world what actually happened it would be better to say nothing?
I appreciate they are hanging onto the slightest hope the judge/jury might fall for it, and they are found not guilty but this chaps version of events was borderline ridiculous.JunkyardMember
He has to get life only the minimum sentence has to be set and that is just the minimum. He is never coming out we all know that even his own brief could offer no mitigation
I would give him longer for not offering the family some closure and insulting everyones intelligence and wallet with that trialPosted 4 years agospawnofyorkshireSubscriber
With a defence that transparently poor, did the jury take the world’s longest tea break in the middle of their deliberations ?
when i did jury service we took two hours to decide on a guilty verdict for a theft case. She was bang to rights but we took our time to go over the evidence again to make sure we were all happy.Posted 4 years agofreeagentMember
The best everyone can hope for is that he dies in jail, and that maybe one day he decides to do the right thing and explain what actually happened.
Although it would be terrible for the family to have confirmed what we all know happened, it might offer a bit more closure.
I don’t know what I’d do if something like that happened to my daughter (who is the same age as April) I think I’d just want to curl up and die.Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber
They probably all have kids, and partners, and workmates and just wanted a bit of peace. If offered the opportunity to take 4 hours out of the world, with everyone instructed by law to leave you alone, who wouldn’t take that? I’d probably have dragged it out for at least a dayPosted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
I’ve been sort of following this from the beginning, and, I have to say, his was one of the least plausible defences I’ve ever heard. Four minutes would seem excessive time for making a decision. ‘Yes, I ran her over, but I’ve no idea what I did with her after that’ 😯Posted 4 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember
One evil b’stard. He’s in for a hard time. Shame it will cost more of the taxpayers money to protect him from the other prisoners.Posted 4 years ago
Evil yes, ‘in for a hard time’? Maybe, maybe not. He’ll be on a wing full of similar offenders.
Huntley’s had some grief though, so Bridger just might too.footflapsSubscriber
You only have to look at all the wrongful convictions from the West Midlands serious crime squad days in the 80s to realise that the death penalty is not a good idea. Plenty of innocent people where completely stitched up by the police during that era and no one had a clue (at the time). Wasn’t the first and won’t be the last time it’s happened either.Posted 4 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember
When I 1st started at Frankland there was a prisoner who was an ex cop & in for rape, he’d been protesting his innocence for 2 years & it transpired that his ‘victim’ had been ‘raped’ 4 or 5 times previously.Posted 4 years ago
Turned out (after appeal & further investigation) that he was innocent after all.
