    Default Sense from a judge

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/...al/7688716.stm

    A bogus workman who was beaten up in prison has been told "you deserve anything you receive" by a sheriff.

    Eddie Newlands, 37, from Perth, was sent to jail for 10 months on Thursday after conning a 91-year-old woman out of £5,500 of her savings.

    Perth Sheriff Court heard he had been "significantly assaulted" twice in custody by inmates angry at his crime.

    Sheriff Margaret Gimblett said she had no sympathy and described what he had done to the pensioner as "despicable."

    Absolutley.

    Conning old ladies out of their savings is the government's job, surely.

    You've come right out the other side of the forest of irony and ended up in the desert of wrong.

    I wonder what the people who beat him up were in for? Presumably less morally reprehensible (in their eyes) crimes like burglary?

    Not only their savings, but also their bank shares and dividends.
