I've always seen my country's (The United States) justice system as incompetent, unjust and often rife with corruption. I figured we had it pretty
bad. Obviously, I was wrong, it looks like our friends in Great Britain have it a lot worse.
Woman beaten for eighteen hours
Georgia Fenn's roommate believed that she had sexual relations with her ex-boyfriend. Georgia's roomate did the only logical thing: She got one of
her friends to aide in a kidnapping of Georgia. for eighteen hours they beat her with a stiletto, a metal necklace, poured boiling sugar water on her,
twice, and made her scream "I'm a whore with AIDS."
They burned her with cigs, beat her with a metal necklace, cut her hair and pounded her with a stiletto heel. They forced her to yell "I'm a whore
with AIDS" for 20 minutes. Then they boiled a pot of hot sugar water and poured it over Fenn. When they weren't satisfied that she screamed with
enough agony, they did it again. It would take 18 hours before Viner-Mood and Gibson tired of the torture. Police would later find Fenn wandering in
a nightgown, blood-soaked with severe burns, multiple broken bones, smashed teeth and her hair chopped.
Okay, that's pretty messed up. Nobody can doubt that. So obviously the police caught the two girls, and I'm sure they both had pretty long sentences
Gibson was given just three years in a youthful offender prison. Viner-Mood got five.
For eighteen hours, a woman was brutally beaten, to a point where I'd say most of us would welcome death over continuing for another hour. Her
attackers got only a combined seven years between them.
Maybe we can get some insight from British citizens here on ATS. Is this normal for the judicial system over the sea? What exactly is going on with
your criminal justice system where two women can essentially almost murder a woman and get less than a decade of time in prison?
