    Andrew Bolt posted on it, here.

    Too fat for jail:

    A MAN considered too fat to be jailed has spoken out after escaping time behind bars because of his weight. Shepparton man Claude Jackson was ordered to do community service for smashing a glass over another man’s head at a Shepparton bar on January 14, 2007.

    Too thin for jail:

    A TEENAGER who bashed a 75-year-old great-grandmother in her bed has avoided jail because a judge thought he was too skinny and “worth a chance”. Judge David Parsons …said Brooks, 19, was a disadvantaged young Aborigine whose chances of rehabilitation were reasonably good.

    Coincidentally, they’re both Aboriginal.

    Thanks Spot. I haven’t clicked over to Mr Bolt’s scribings today, other than to read his blogging of 2020.

    Oh, and three heart attacks by the age of 21? Not exactly the best track record. I’m going to assume that he’s under medical care to lose weight, but even so, to weigh 190kgs by 21, it can’t have gone unnoticed by his mother. I just wonder what kind of diet he was getting as a child and in his teens.

    I read that and had to leave the keyboard. This stuff riles me up like no tomorrow. So the poor dear might have a few medical problems caused by jail time?

    Don’t do the crime, son.

    Is it just me, or does it appear that our wonderfully even-handed judiciary here in Brumbystan have realised that handing out get out of jail free cards based on ethnicity is pissing off the hoi polloi so they’re finding new and inventive ways to pander to the poor dears?

    Hats off to the photographer who managed to elicit a pose that makes the fat guy look like he has a pig’s nose.

Well, SAY something...
