Baby P killer Jason Owen released from prison…again: “bail conditions may breach his human rights” say the Keystone Cops.
You really could not make this up if you tried. From the moment baby Peter Connelly was placed on the at-risk register, to the 60 (at least) oversights made in 8 months by social workers and doctors, to the dangerous misuse of the Children’s Act 1989 that kept him within the questionable custody of the family circle, to the woefully short prison sentences handed down by Justice Stephen Kramer – the tragic story of this little boy has unfolded like a farce and continues to this day seven years after his murder.
One of his three killers, Jason Owen, served barely 2 years of a six year sentence in prison for his part in this most horrific of crimes and was returned to prison in April 2013 for breaching his parole conditions. Owen, released in June, has seemingly earned himself some significant human rights privileges since the year he tortured a 17 month old child to his death. Whilst in prison most recently he applied for, and received, a cash payout of almost £2000 in compensation for alleging his food had been deliberately contaminated – god forbid he should suffer an upset tummy – the judge agreed, tut-tutted in sympathy and Owen banked the money. Now where is my £2000 for being hit by waves of racking nausea over this information…?
So, the wheels of justice turn for Jason Owen – in a way they never turned for little Peter Connelly – and Owen is now walking free and without having to look over his shoulder too often because…wait for it…the police are fearful of monitoring him too closely in case it invades his privacy and thus breaches his human rights. This child killer, this monster who committed acts of sheer brutality on a defenceless baby, continues to be treated as anything but the lowest most dangerous form of criminal there is. And right now he is living somewhere near one of you. And should the police get too close, should he feel any sense of annoyance at being watched, there’s the European Court of Human Rights, an all-expenses paid barrister and a trip to Strasbourg waiting should the need arise.
The European Court of Human Rights – the one court in the land where you have to be a criminal to get any.
