More English Justice

John at Powerline posted an article regarding the activities of a British felon that has me absolutely dumbfounded. Innocent people are not permitted to know when a convicted sex offender is dropped in their midst.

Not that this felon is doing anything out of the ordinary for a convicted murderer; he is killing and raping right on schedule. He has left a trail of pain and ruined lives in his wake for years and no one is surprised because English law has not the slightest intent of protecting innocent citizens. From the UK Telegraph:

Michael Clark, 40, was on the Sex Offenders Register and subject to official checks. But he was able to move into a city of his choosing where neighbours did not know his past.

The council considered him too dangerous to live there, but had to house him after being warned of legal action for breaching his human rights as a homeless person.

Clark had just been released from a three-year jail term for sexually assaulting a prostitute and had been given a seven-year sentence for raping a woman in her own home.

Even in liberal NY State there laws that control where and when these people can be released from prison. My preference of course, is a simple surgical procedure that would eliminate the propensity for re-offending by permanently removing the offensive member. In Mr. Clark's case, this same procedure should have been applied just below his chin. What follows is terrible.

[...]Robert and Matgorzarta Zommer came to Britain from Poland with their daughter Zuzanna, 14, and nine-year-old son Mikotej.

Clark, a jobless solvent abuser, struck as the couple walked their son to his first day at school two months after arriving in the country.

He is thought to have let himself into the house where he sexually assaulted Zuzanna before stabbing her in the stomach, fracturing her skull by stamping on her head and slitting her throat.

Afterwards he drew his benefits from a Post Office and went to Blackpool.

This heartless beast rapes, stomps and carves up a teenager, toddles down to to pick up his welfare check and then off on a lark.

Clark also had convictions for assaulting a woman friend and assaulting two police officers, biting a testicle off one of them.

This nutsack munching monster finally pissed off enough people, so the Brits locked him up for 35 years. Now everyone involved in the decisions on where to house this homicidal maniac has shifted into heavy duty CYA mode.

When he was released from jail for attacking the prostitute it was considered too dangerous for him to return to Scunthorpe, Lincs.

He moved to Leeds, where the city council rejected his request to house him.

Les Carter, Leeds city council's head of neighbourhood and housing, said the homeless charity Shelter warned of possible judicial review because the decision infringed his human rights.

The finger pointing circle jerk goes into high gear.

Det. Supt Bill Shackleton, who led the police inquiry, said: "Clark was on the Sex Offenders Register and regular checks were carried out on him.

"He was being managed in the community."

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Probation Service said: "We had no statutory supervision of Clark. He was not on licence or any other kind of sentence that involved probation."

And while the bureaucrats are dodging blame, the homeless-coddling Shelter people join in the Not Me chorus.

A Shelter spokesman said: "This is a tragic case and we send our sincerest sympathies to the family.

"We did not ask or threaten a judicial review. [...] Questions need to be asked as to why this young girl and her family were housed next to a known sex offender."

The Shelter advocacy group typically places the blame on the victim's family. The monster is also a victim so of course there is no question why he was allowed to move where ever he wanted. No, the real question is why English law has abandoned the people it is supposed to protect.
