Charnwood swan molestor gets 11 months

By RiotFrog - 24 November 2011 72

The Canberra Times reports today that:

A man who bashed a black swan until its head was ”destroyed” and then drove a stake into the dead animal’s body has been jailed for 11 months.

Details here:  Man jailed for killing swan

It’s not pretty pretty reading, but the details are interesting.

UPDATE: The RSPCA have made this statement:

CEO of RSPCA ACT Michael Linke today applauded an 11 month jail sentence handed down to Charnwood man Ashley Inder.

“This is a bitter sweet outcome. Bitter in that a swan has suffered unimaginable cruelty, but sweet in that a jail term of this magnitude has been handed down.

“We don’t often see jail terms, but I think this one should send a clear message to the community that animal cruelty is an abhorrent and unacceptable act.’ Michael concluded

Maybe I’m the only one, but I was pleasantly surprised by that sentence. Would’ve expected a fully suspended sentence and maybe a GBO.

Just sickening. Unbelievably sickening.

Wait for all his f***wit mates to now come out and proclaim what a great guy he is.

And for Violet to come on saying how it was not his fault, he was forced into it by society, its the fault of the police, the swan should not have provoked him etc blah, blah, blah.

F**k that for a weak ar$e punishment. I am sick of these lowlifes being given pissweak opunishments by the bleeding heart magistrates. The guy killed an innocent animal, how would he go against a human if provoked or off his head.

It time that we start issuing proper punishments for cruelty to animals. WHy were his mates not punished? Did they stand there and laugh or did they try and stop it? Can I take to him with a tree stake and only get 3 months full time detention? Why is his life worth more than the swan? At least the swan did something for society by giving small kids something to look at in wonder while it swam around?

He will be out early next year and probably acting like derro bogan trash again within a week.

Hear hear, well said QbnGeek. This was utter brutality, it’s sickening, and in a year you might come face-to-face with this filth, or others like him, out and about…

We need a way to recognise the full import of what these people are and what they’re capable of, just like a person who murders people with brutality and cruelty. The evilness of what this person did is not something you can just ignore. he’ll do it again.

I hope someone sorts him out in gaol.

From memory, Swans (like many other birds) get married, they have partners for life, not just the breeding season.

Are you serious? It concerns me that people who think like this are part of our society.

Imagine the distress of the lady and her child who actually saw this incident, rather than just reading about it. I hope it hasn’t stopped her going out to the park, though it would be understandable if it had.

It’s good to see the court taking an animal’s suffering quite seriously; usually a fine is all that’s given.

…he didn’t need any “provocation” to threaten teachers…

“three months’ in full-time custody and another three months in weekend detention with the balance of the sentence suspended”.
WTF??
I have my golf club to drive up to someone’s arse, after I club his head to a pulp.May get a year for that. 🙂

Lowlife. Just glad there was a witness to this to get the facts straight.

“The court heard Inder suffered from a developmental delay and had been diagnosed with attention-deficit disorder and Tourette’s syndrome.

He had had more than 20 drinks and was intoxicated at the time of the offence, believing that the swan had attacked him and his friends half-an-hour before he killed it.

The prosecution said the attack was unprovoked, gratuitous and extreme.

Ms Campbell said a pre-sentence report showed Inder did not express any remorse for the killing and had told the report’s author he would refuse to attend any rehabilitation programs or self-help schemes.”

What a special person he is.

And revealing the claims by his mates jumping to his defence here as utter lies.
Cretins.
I’m sure that life in prison will lead to him getting some sliver of an insight into how the swan felt.

Good to see scum getting what they deserve.

Holden Caulfield 10:25 am 24 Nov 11

This is an injustice! He didn’t even do it, he was just poking it!!!

Ashely Inder – I’ll be sure to remember the name.
