"Come, friendly bombs, and fall on Slough!
It isn't fit for humans now,
There isn't grass to graze a cow.
Swarm over, Death!"
Oh come on Raggy
They had the best deference money can buy
They had a system that has proven to be heavily flawed in their favour
The jury had a strong male imbalance
They won their case - that is not disputed
The judge said their "good character" should be taken into consideration, yet they tweeted boastfully how they "spit-roasted" a drunk young woman and after the verdict tweeted to the world that she was "a slut"
On no account should they cme out smelling like roses
If they didn't do the crime, they certainly more than represent the behavior that encouraged women to be regarded as "available meat"
They are not victims - they will almost certainly stay at the top of their career and have received financial compensation for their (rightful, in my opinion) dismissal
The only thing to be said in their favour is that they provided the world with a perfect example of how the law is flawed - that is what is now being questioned - not the verdict
