Firstly, I refer you all to THIS post done several days ago.
The pillar of society pictured to your left has been given 20 years for murdering Melanie Ann Harden on the 11th of September 1999.
Francis John McCullagh, a thug and career crook will be at least 52 years of age before he has a chance of being out on the streets–at the most he will be 56 years of age.
Whilst I must be thankful for small mercies that the penalty was as harsh as this, I am still nowhere near satisfied. In many other countries this offender would be facing the needle but more likely would have been put away for ever, long before he had the chance to take Melanie Ann Harden’s life.
A bitter pill for Melanie and her unfortunate family to swallow…
Too little too late.
