This man is an absolute coward and the very epitome of scum, his name is Hugh ‘Milksop’ Clark. After being saved by a pub landlady from getting a beating from a man, he decided that being no match for men, he’d attack a woman.
Breaking into the house of the man from whom he’d escaped a beating earlier he attacked his wife. Now, just hitting her or beating her would have been bad enough, but no, this craven cur couldn’t take the chance that he might be bested by her, so he took a knife. Catching her by surprise, again no point in taking chances when you’re a weakling, he brutally stabbed the mother of two eight times. When the woman’s nine year old son tried to intervene, he stabbed him in the face. Well I suppose that the namby-pamby piece of shit couldn’t take any chances, the little boy was nine.
Fortunately for the pair, he’s as an inept at killing as anything else that he turns his hand too and they managed to escape to a neighbours. Both are scarred for life; I am sure that the poor boy will never get over it.
As for Hugh ‘The Wuss’ Clark, he has admitted attempted murder and is awaiting sentence. Unfortunately the current justice system does not offer any real justice. The man should be hung. He has no place in society. Any man prepared to attack a defenceless woman and her child with a knife over a perceived slight, is never going to be rehabilitated. He will always be between heinous crimes, until finally and inevitably he robs some poor family of a loved one, for which he will receive a slightly stiffer sentence than usual.
People like Clark have a callous disregard for human life, believing that people live on their say so and whim. For that he should have his life privileges revoked and be hung by the neck until dead.
