Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange has been jailed for 110 years at Southwark Crown Court for jaywalking.
In a letter, Assange apologised profusely and said he was trying to avoid a rabid pack of murderers who were hunting him and wanted him killed.
Judge Deborah Taylor, conservative and with an eye on a peerage, said it was difficult to envisage a more serious example of the offence. By walking along the street he had deliberately tried to avoid his pursuers.
She added that while Assange may have feared for his very life, he still had a choice. His course of action to seek refuge by walking along a street to avoid his pursuers and thus commit this crime was the choice he made.
She originally gave him 105 years but added another 5 when she learned that Assange had never given his cat tuna.
Assange’s defence team said they will appeal the severity of the sentence as jaywalking is not a crime in the UK. And he tried giving his cat tuna on several occasions but it simply didn’t like it.
Assange’s rabid pursuers have applied to have him extradited to a country whose laws on freedom of the press and free speech can easily be overruled to achieve the outcome the ruling junta party requires.
It’s not totally dissimilar to the UK although they have a lot more hidden agendas and back ops than the UK.
A Home Office spokesperson said that what happens to Assange after extradition is not the concern of the UK as they have no business interfering with an overseas potentate. Now that the Empire has collapsed.
The Ecuadorian embassy, in faltering English, reports that the cat is eaten well.
Are you worried about British ‘justice’?
Are you more worried about the cat?
