Stay Away from the Police

Posted November 30th, 2009 by soliscjw

"Paul Clarke thought he was doing the right thing by taking a "shorn-off shotgun" he'd found to the police. He forgot that he lives in England. The police immediately arrested him for possession of a firearm. At trial, prosecutor Brian Stalk explained that possession is a "strict liability" charge, meaning that Clarke's good intentions were irrelevant. The jury found him guilty, and the ex-soldier faces a minimum of five years in prison. "

And perhaps one more disgusting thing is that comments on the story have been disabled. For "legal reasons." My girlfriend tells me a loaded gun was "donated" (or as I suggested, ditched) in a donation bin where she works. Under this standard, everyone there would be guilty.
