After saying “I don‘t criticise you for being a teacher who’s attracted to children.” “Many teachers are but they keep their urges under control both when it comes to children and when it comes to images of children,” a UK Judge gave the pervert a suspended sentence.
Similar cases in the US have led to minimum sentencing laws but there is a deeper problem. When a tipping point of the population, even a minority, doesn't believe that the courts will dispense justice bad things happen.
Judges like this and their colleges in the US who take vague laws and twist them to suit their agenda chip away at the belief people have in the system working. This will not end well if it continues.
