too believable

British judge says accused robber can't get a fair trial because the testifying victim is "too believable"
She's so credible that the jury will slurp up every word she says, and that's unfair, so the judge dismissed the robbery charge and freed the defendant. (Seriously.) [Ed.: Actually, this has a solid basis in law, but I don't want to spoil it for you. If you're interested, see the Editor's Note at the bottom of today's post.] Daily Mail

Ah, Chuck, you're confusing "law" and "justice" again. :(

Rodger, you should try listening to Bill Hicks' stand up routine on british thugs. If I remember correctly he quotes a headline in a british paper (while he was on tour there) that says something to the affect of, "Young hooligans turned over a dustbin in (some british town, I don't remember which one)". He jokes about putting the hooligans (with their pennyloafers and button up shirts)up against the Bloods.

Yob, how queer is that?

Here is a link to the text of Bill Hicks' hooligan rant. The video is better.
