Drug dealers in the UK receive harsher punishments than child rapists!

The headline to this blog sounds stupid and unrealistic but its true and I can prove it. John McCallum was sentenced to a pretty lenient ten years for the repeated rape of his nieces Tracy and her twin sister Rachel Steadwood, now 38 and from Edinburgh, they were just six years old when their childhood came to an end due to this man’s abuse.

Just three years into his sentence and John McCallum is to be let out of jail for home visits after less than a third of his sentence (according to the Daily record in December 2016.)

Curtis Warren on the other hand Conspiracy to smuggle cannabis: 13 years, Manslaughter: 4 years (an act of self defense as he killed another prisoner that attacked him with a punch  the prisoners head hit the floor and he died later in hospital,)  Shipment of drugs to the Netherlands: 12 years and armed robbery (I cannot find any information on his armed robbery charge) has spent all but five weeks of the last 17 years in jail (according to the Guardian in October 2013) and has still not been released.

So lets look at the facts Conspiracy to smuggle cannabis is punished with 13 years, the repeated rape of two children that were as young as three when the abuse started gets ten years, WTF is that?

How and why does this happen? The answer is simple and predictable. The government and prison system is not there to protect children or people but to control people and protect governments and their puppet masters.

As far as the government is concerned smuggling cannabis (a herb scientifically speaking) is more of a priority than justice for rape victims because the government is more interested in control than justice.

 

The story of Curtis Warren exposes the stupidity and unfairness of the British “justice system.” #FREE CURTIS WARREN

Curtis Francis Warren (born 31 May 1963) is an English gangster, who as Britain’s most notorious drugs trafficker was formerly Interpol’s Target One, and once listed on the Sunday Times Rich List.

He has been in prison since his arrest in 1996, he was charged with Armed robbery, Shipping drugs to the Netherlands, Manslaughter and Conspiracy to smuggle cannabis.

It’s the time in prison dished out for crimes that amazes me about this case, his Manslaughter charge is described by wikipedia like this; On the afternoon of 15 September 1999, Warren had a fight in the prison yard with Turkish national Cemal Guclu, who was serving a 20-year sentence for murder and attempted murder. Yelling abuse at Warren, Guclu walked towards him and tried to punch him in the face. Evading the punch, a short fight ensued, during which Guclu fell to the ground, and Warren kicked him in the head 4 times, Guclu got up and again went for Warren and was again punched to the floor. It was here he hit his head and became unconscious from which Guclu never recovered and died in hospital.

It sounds like self defense to me and we should all be allowed to defend ourselves.  In his trial defense in 2001, Warren said he “acted in self defense.” Finding Warren guilty of manslaughter, the Dutch judge commented that “the defendant had used excessive violence,” sentencing him to an additional four years with release scheduled in 2014. In November 2013 he was ordered to pay a £198m confiscation order, or face another ten years in jail. On 27 March 2014 it was reported that Warren had lost his appeal over his failure to pay the order, and so would remain in prison.

The punishment he recieved expose the stupidity of the British Justice system. He was sentence to the following.

Armed robbery: 5 years
Shipment of drugs to the Netherlands: 12 years
Manslaughter: 4 years
Conspiracy to smuggle cannabis: 13 years

I can’t find any information anyway concerning his armed robbery but how does Conspiracy to smuggle cannabis and shipping drugs to arguably the drug capital of Europe end up with such a harsh punishment? I have seen murderers, paedophiles and rapists face much softer sentences than Warren faces for supplying people with products that the people are crying out for.

The reason I believe the time has now come for Warren to be released is simple; This is not about justice its about control.
