I wonder what someone would get for...

a) Throwing the baby out with the bath water
b) Throwing toys out of the pram
c) Throwing a tantrum...

Re: Edward Woollard the Fire Extinguisher thrower gets sentenced

Isn't that longer than two of the women recently convicted of sexually abusing children in their care at the urging of a man they met on the internet?

Anyone want to way the magnitude of those on the scales of justice?

He is lucky to have got away with a charge of Violent Disorder (maximum sentence 5 years). He could easily have been facing a charge of Manslaughter or even Murder.
