"She's apparently upping sticks to the US with hubby Peter Andre"
Woohoo! Sounds like a good excuse for a national holiday if you ask me!
What would be a good penalty for releasing crap songs, having your vocal cords removed?
Prodigiously Bulgarian airbagged glamour minx Jordan has announced that rapists should henceforce be raped themselves, one of a raft of proposed measures designed to restore law and order to the UK's crime-ravaged streets. The would-be lawmaker - whose body sensationally comprises 40 per cent water, one per cent other stuff …
...surely then someone would have to rape the rapist rapist? The whole country could get sucked off^M^M^M in. Maybe some sort of circle jerk?
And what happens when, inevitably, a raped rapist is found innocent? Do we rape the accuser? The judge? Jordan <shivers>?
I never understood people who think that the best way of demonstrating that "hurting people is bad" is by hurting people.
To what extent would the eye-for-an-eye thing apply?
Let's say I commit a parking offence (yeah, unlikely I know, but bear with me for a sec). Would the council get to obstruct my driveway for 30 minutes? They could even have an official argue with me that he 'just nipped into the shop for some change' or something.
I have a mental image of Jordan, dressed as a judge, sitting atop a horse, which is forcibly sodomising a convicted rapist who has been doused in female horse scent. It's not an entirely displeasing image. Like something from from Studio 54 during the height of the disco era. I doubt that it would cut crime, however.
if all the rapists were to be raped, then the prison officials that raped them would be raped, and eventually the HM prison service would run out of rapists to rape the rapists, they would have to turn to other .gov services, then to the public, and the whole thing would spread like an epidemic of rape.
everyone in the UK would end up firstly raping someone, then being raped in punishment. Maybe Jordan likes the idea.....
paris cos she has less grotesquely over-inflated legislation
>> “The way I see it is an eye for an eye. So if someone rapes a girl he should be bent over and
>> the same thing done to him. I’m sorry that’s just the way I feel. I’m very strict.”
I think the mere thought of being forced to have sex with Jordan is enough to put of any potential rapist. Heck, just the thought of Jordan is enough to put most people off for a week.
While I sympathize with the death penalty, and raping rapists (which the truly sick ones would probably enjoy too much, but who am I to use reason, I'm a nobody). The others remind me why people need to read classical books, like maybe, The Scarlet Letter? When it is convenient for us, we believe people can change. Marking them for life seems as extreme as what we see happen in the most fundamentalist countries. People like her are what happens when you let thoughtless and disturbed people punish the other thoughtless and disturbed. I mean seriously, most of them say they are Christians even, and I have a strange feeling Jesus would not approve, to say the least.
One nice thing about freedom of speech is that you get to be warned of the crazy ones right from their own mouths. And they have no idea they are doing so, or how insane they really are. True justice would be that after she put in the needle, they find out the one she put to death was innocent after someone else comes out and admits to the crime with hard evidence. This actually happens, but, because of the spectacle she would create, it would be too hard to keep as quiet as they tend to when a famous governor does it behind the wall of a signature and a confusing justice system.
Sane is crazy and crazy is sane, welcome to bizarro world!
" Interestingly, Jordan does not suggest a suitable punishment for parents who give their kids bloody silly names. "
And here's where we see the whole house of cards fall down, because the appropriate punishment for such a crime -- an eye for an eye -- is to give the _parents_ silly names. But the perfectly normal "Katie Price" has already benn traded in for the name of an F1 racing team (which incidentally has a *boy's* name).
Was she thinking of how the other jungle jane inflatable funbag was treated (Sorry I use the word thinking in its broadest possible sense) http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/01/21/jungle_jane_perp_cuffed/comments/
Mines the one with the bicycle pump and the puncture repair kit in the pocket.
This is all coming from the woman who used to repeatedly speed through our village at 60mph + in her brand new Range Rover and when caught said in her bimbo voice "ooh, I didn't know what the speed limit was."
So Jordan, willing to give up your cars are you? No didn't think so.
Well, two really
1) "So if someone rapes a girl he should be bent over and the same thing done to him. I’m sorry that’s just the way I feel."
So how is the girl supposed to rape the man like that???
2) "I’m very strict."
Isn't this just incitement to doing naughty stuff?
PS, mater baters, she doesn't have "milkers". But if you're looking for silicone sealant in a handy jumbo pack...
Oh wait, many of them were, leading to...
Personally I think we should quickly and painless put down the 5.5 billion stupidest, most useless people in the world to bring our population back to sustainable levels (which is why you won't see me lining up for the job of global dictator - who wants that decision! - well the first billion or so are easy enough to choose, but then it starts to get into arbitrary definitions of stupid and useless).
Would any of you posters agree that a nine year - out in four years sentence is adequate for a man who not only participated in a ten man gang rape of girl with the mental age of an eight year old. But also, in a premeditated act, brought caustic soda along to douse the victim in to cover their tracks?
Not only does the victim of this sadistic crime have to cope with the mental scars of this ordeal, she is permanently scarred from the caustic soda.
I challenge ANY of you to think that justice has been served.
I’ll also add that some of the ten also recorded this act of animalistic barbarism on their mobile phones, so it’s not exactly like there is an issue of misidentifying someone or the act was consensual.
Come on, I’d welcome any considered argument as to why these men deserved the sentence they got.
Personally, at best I’d want them to get life in a normal wing of a prison. Not a cushy one where nonces get put. Perhaps a “Daddy” could make them his bitches. At worse, I’m thinking the Brazen Bull would be a good one, as they burn, they could reflect on the chemical burning of their victim.
Now, before any bleeding heart liberals accuse me of advocating Sharia Law, there is a gulf of difference between the crime and punishment I describe and killing someone for adultery. I don’t condone the amputation of a limb for theft. Or stoning someone for sex outside of marriage.
But justice in the UK seems to be favouring the rights of the offender over the rights of the victim.
Another travesty of justice recently was with a woman who got mugged, but the Judge thought that the woman was too good a witness and thought that she would prejudice the case against the w*nker who mugged her. So he dismissed the case. WTF?
Who exactly polices these judges? Who has the power to remove them from duty for gross inability to do their job? Or even prosecute them for failing to uphold justice?
I don’t want blanket judgements for crimes because I know that each case does not follow a formula. But, justice miscarries in some spectacular ways and it should be corrected.
Price’s comments may be misguided, but at least she has something say to about the issue.
Paris would go “What issues? This is my puppy, isn’t it cute?”
Now I have said to people who think that women who dress like tarts "deserve it" that if dressing provocatively was a crime punishable by rape, then rape should be a crime punishable by having their balls cut off.
But that is to indicate to these idiots that although there is some blame to be had for it (in the same way as walking into a Skinhead bar and snogging as many of them as you can if you're a bloke means you'll get a f'n kicking: you shouldn't have done it, but the kicking is still GBH), that doesn't make it right to rape them.
But when plonkers like you Rob say that anyone who rapes must have their nads removed, I wonder whether you think someone who wants men mutilated should have their eyes and tongue cut out.
And would you agree that a ten year sentence for someone who didn't rape but was merely accused of it (and is now on the sex offenders register for all eternity) is completely wrong too?
Justice is about not punishing the innocent. Revenge is about punishing the presumed guilty. If you really DO have the guilty, deterrence is about punishing the guilty.
We have a justice system. Not a revenge one and not a deterrent one.
If you don't like it, move somewhere where they don't sweat the punishment too much. Afghanistan, for example, under the Taliban.
Greek to you, eh?
Hubby (with whom she appears to share a brain cell) is from a Greek-Cypriot family.
I suspect that the island of Cyprus (where they have just built a 'luvverly' pink house) will declaring a national holiday with the news they're heading for the USA.

They could have Mike Rowe's TV crew film it and put it on the show Dirty Jobs - they seem to like horse-sex stuff there ;)
"I doubt that it would cut crime, however."
Yeah, you're probably right.
"Rob Stiles" said:
"Rapists should have their balls removed. No repeat offenders and quite a deterrent."
Some of them might *like* it too much.
Besides, it wouldn't stop them from being violent in other ways.
"John Savard" said:
"However, had she merely suggested torturing rapists to death, I would have been happy to give that proposal my unqualified support."
A lot of people would agree with you.
"Cris Wilson" said:
"How do you put the balls back on again when you find out you've made a mistake?"
Er, yes, that could be a problem alright...
Well then we'll just have to settle for life in prison, no paroll, no exceptions unless DNA evidence someday proves them innocent. Go back to having such prisoners dig ditches or make license plates or do something else productive that benefits society, rather than just being leeches that suck up taxpayer dollars on their free room-and-board, free cable TV, free weightlifting/gyms, free internet access (for "research" - bah!), etc. Hell it wasn't until just recent years that they were even prevented from smoking cigarettes in prison. I have actually met people who *prefer* to be in prison (don't ask how - if I tell you I'd have to kill you), especially during the freezing-cold winter months in some areas, because in their *own* view they get everything handed to them on a silver platter there (compared to life on the streets or in certain street-gangs, anyway - obviously different depending on what strata of society they're from). Time to make prisoners work off their crimes, pay for their mistakes, instead of just getting a nice cushy place to hang out for a while.
Here in the U.S., convicted sex offenders are regularly released back into society after short sentences, even when they're judged as being "At high risk to re-offend", and once they're back out on the streets/neighborhoods/etc they often re-commit the same offenses all over again.
Obviously "rehabiliation," and the current lenient prison/judicial system (at least in the U.S.), doesn't work very well. So it's not surprising that some people support more extreme ideas.
- Maybe Paris could *tease* sex-offenders to death while they are utilizing some of the other posters' horse/etc ideas ;)
