"perverting the course of justice!"


14 June 2006
A MOTORIST who stole a 40mph sign and stuck it over a 30mph one in a bid to avoid a speeding fine faces jail, a court heard.

John Hopwood, 44, had escaped a charge of breaking a 30mph limit by taking a picture of the 40mph sign on the road and producing it in court.

But police brought in a facial scanning expert who noted blemishes on the sign and confirmed it was the one which had been stolen earlier.

Care assistant Hopwood, of Stockport, was hauled before Manchester crown court where he pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice. He will be sentenced later.

Judge Anthony Ensor told Hopwood: "You have been very foolish. This is such a serious matter a custodial sentence must be considered."

3rd declaration: In such extreme circumstances, the law is by definition inadequate. To shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law, to pursue natural justice. This is not vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive-it is an emotional response. Vengeance serves no larger purpose. Society does not benefit from vengeance. Violent men are not deterred by acts of vengeance. The only appropriate response to their actions is the one I have chosen to pursue: a course of purposed, intentional violence. Violence intended to instruct, as much as destruct. A course, in a word, of punishment
