Well if I haven’t seen some sh!t in my time, and I’m only 22. Let’s get into it *sigh*.
There is a 24 year old woman…who stabbed her boyfriend in the leg with a bread knife supposedly in a drugged up fuelled frenzy can possibly be spared prison due to the judge saying she has ‘an extraordinary talent for medicine. Question mark? To add more insult to injury she then hurled a laptop and a glass and another item at her now ex.
I can’t even knock the woman she’s in Oxford University and she obviously was aspiring to be something great that might save anyone of our lives one day. However, it sounds like this woman has been under the influence before or at least in a comfortable state to have drugs with her ex and maybe even before him. I’m a person who hardly drinks, and if it is in my vision then that’s not my first option, I don’t want to drink because I sometimes don’t like the affects that I feel after taking it, I am aware of my own being. Some people get drunk to an oblivion and they somehow do not know their limit, I’ve seen it first-hand. She must not be that ‘extraordinary’ that she was able to at least control some form of her actions before lunging at the man. If that be the case she must have been completely intoxicated to not even be able to have some control over an impulse. I mean is the argument that detrimental that you have to stab someone? Boy if that be the case if I should of used my extraordinary talents to make a couple moves on people in my past (but I’m different now lol). But then again….can you be that out of your mind when you stab someone and then continue on to throw things at them, wouldn’t you of stopped way before throwing the first item?
My second thing is this, I think this might be seen as funny because it’s a bread knife rather than a butcher knife, at the end of the day a knife is a knife it was used as an instrument to severely harm someone and he could of possibly died, if that knife would of hit a vital artery in his leg and he bled out it could of easily been a murder case. She is extremely lucky this man is alive, I don’t know if he’s well but we know at least he is alive.
Thirdly, I’m slightly confused, there are so many great post graduates that have achieved their degrees, have masters, they have put themselves out there in society with great passions and potentials. But yet still have no jobs…..now this isn’t really a rant about jobs like that, but I dislike the idea that the judge equated the crime with her academics, at the same time when a person applies for positions for certain job roles, the employer would never ever equate their academics to the role.
It’s unfortunate because no matter what this woman will always have a criminal record and she probably won’t be able to have her ‘dream job’ all because of this. So who’s losing out? I’m not going to get on to race we already know what the situation would have been in that case, probably more detrimental than an ‘extraordinary talent’ going to waste ya’dig.
Now that her face has been posted up literally, it’s going to be life changing for her.
Keep it true,
