Kill someone for not getting out of your dogs chair and you'll be back on the street in 3 years.  Yeah, that's fair, isn't it?

Dog chair row teenager is jailed

An 18-year-old who killed his friend when he refused to get out of his dog's favourite chair has been jailed for three years.

Stefan Muir hit Ashley Bridgeman, also 18, over the head with a baseball bat during the row after he threatened to kick the dog if it bit him.

Mr Bridgeman died the following day from brain damage.

Muir, from Wandsworth, south London, had admitted the manslaughter of Mr Bridgeman in April last year.

'Trivial argument'

Jeffrey Pegden, prosecuting, said after Mr Bridgeman threatened to kick the dog, a Staffordshire bull terrier, Muir tried to push him out of the flat but Mr Bridgeman grabbed him by the neck.

Muir then ran into the kitchen, returned with the wooden bat and struck his friend on the left-hand side of his head.

Judge Richard Hawkins said: "It was a trivial argument over your dog which developed into a confrontation."

He told Muir that Mr Bridgeman's death was "the loss of a young life on the verge of manhood" and that no sentence he passed could cure the grief felt by his family and friends.

Icah Peart QC, defending, said the two teenagers had never rowed before the argument.

Remember the incident caught on tape? A mall security tape caught two 12 YO boys taking a much smaller child out of a mall. He was found decapitated in a rail road yard. Since they were minors they were only sentenced till they were 18 then society helped them readjust to their new lives with new identies. Is'nt that special? I wonder when we Barbarian Americans will learn from our british cousins the concept of merciful justice???????????????
