Suspended sentence. This means, in short, that he is placed on probation and if he violates the terms of this probation he goes to jail.

Sounds like the prosecution was unable, or didn't try to, push for attempted murder. They would have to prove intent to commit homicide, which would be very hard given the circumstances. Sounds like the guy got a good defence any how with a probational order.

They need to prove intent, not that he was pushed. People may have seen him being pushed, but the prosecution would need to prove that he was pushing him in an attempt to kill him. This is very hard to do..

From the video I saw the guy being prosecuted could argue self defense, kinda looks like the other lightly pushed him first then he grabbed his arm and launched him into the train. That's a common self defense move, minus the train bring there. You use their momentum against a person so they end up getting thrown in the same direction as they initially pushed.

And realistically the odds of getting killed from being thrown into a train like that are slim. His upper body would bounce off the train and clear the gap. You would have to throw him in between two cars to kill him.

I also like how the video doesn't show what led to this. Because the minute before this happens isn't relevant to how it is perceived of course.

Also what happened after. Was the guy that threw him gang beaten and stomped to shit? Who knows they didn't show it.

Honestly america gets made fun of a lot for being stupid but I think that cake actually goes to the UK. They are fucking stupid. Officially their polices are stupid, and most people from there are stupid.

cause most juries would find not guilty to attempted murder, but most would find guilty for assault with intent to endanger life. its the judge thats let him off lightly tho as that still carries up to 14 year.

the same thing happened to me when i stabbed a security guard in the head with a screwdriver. the cops arresred me for attempted murder but then charged me with assault with intent. at court it dropped to assault in return for a guilty.

you wouldn't stab some big hefty bloke in the head and then brag about it on the internet.

you wouldn't stab some hefty bloke in the head and then think: oh yeah, i'll go on a forum like Zoklet and brag about a crime that would make the national news. the lad's living some kind of little fantasy, and he's musguided at that.

I never said anything about it being dry. British humor isn't dry. Its straight up retarded. Like something charles manson would find hysterical in the peak of an lsd frenzy. I'm sure the common british comedies are big hits in mental institutions.

I think what's retarded is labelling that style of humour as British when I have seen similar styles from a variety of countries that aren't Britain, including the United States.

give over, you represent a country that created Friends and Seinfeld, and How I Met Your Mother and all that absolute shit.

but you probably like those don't you?

No. That's classic british humor. If other countries are doing it they copied it from britain.

I don't like friends or how I met your mother but I do like Seinfeld, and curb your enthusiasm for that matter. Don't worry, seinfeld will start making more sense to you when your balls drop.

In a society where I can walk free from pushing someone into a train, versus a society which locks people up for life for stealing a donut and a prison system overcrowded by busting every fool with weed, I know which I'd rather live in.

Britain might not be perfect, but shit, the police and laws being useless takes the pressure off.

The thing that really freaks me out about the UK is the racial hatred laws. People getting arrested for burning korans and stuff... that is just creepy.
