Screwing the System

The Beeb report that a convicted rapist is launching court action claiming his human rights are being breached because he has not been granted early release from jail.

In this case, No definitely, categorically means No.

It's hard enough to get a conviction for rape, so we are told, and then the ECHR comes to the rescue of the crim at the expense of the victim (and potential victims given that the
parole board said the public risk he posed was considered "unacceptable").

That would be another case brought to court at OUR expense.

If he loses, won't he have to find the money himself?
