The Ass is a Law

Can't quite get my head around these two when put next to each other.

A man has been ordered to pay more than £1500 after he admitted drowning a grey squirrel, the RSPCA said today. Raymond Elliot, 58, of Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, was also handed a six-month conditional discharge after he pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to an animal. He was ordered to pay the RSPCA's prosecution costs of £1,547 at Burton-upon-Trent Magistrates' Court last Friday.

A police officer who was filmed pushing a man to the ground during the G20 protests will not face charges over his death. Ian Tomlinson, 47, died after being caught up in the clashes on 1 April 2009 in the City of London. Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer said there was no prospect of conviction because experts could not agree on how Mr Tomlinson died.

Thank God the copper didn't kill a squirrel. Justice would NEVER have been done.

This is a crazy country.
