JeshmaA Latvian man who raped and murdered a teenager as she walked home from school has been given three life sentences.

Viktor Dembovskis, 43, attacked Jeshma Raithatha as the 17-year-old made her way along a footpath near her home in Greenford, west London, last May. Her body was discovered eight days later. She had been strangled, raped and then stabbed to death.

    [...] Things have been relatively active on the female front of late. Continued coverage of Sally Ann-Bowman and the Jeshma Raithatha cases has turned the spotlight to rape and female sexual morality once more. [...]

    what I’d like to know is why this guy isn’t deported to serve his time in Latvia. Like with the imprisonment of the cocklers gangmaster who’s been convicted and sentenced, but will be deported back to china after he’s served his sentence here. strange.

    but will be deported back to china after he’s served his sentence here.

    Sentencing Dembovskis at the Old Bailey, Judge Peter Beaumont said he would never be released.

    Hang the bastard.

    geezer,

    Nah, rotting away for the next 40 odd years will just have to do.

    A full life tarriff – not very often you see on of those dished out. There’s only about 25 of those in the whole of the UK.

    No Don I suggest experiments on him so we don’t have to kill those lovely fluffy bunnies.

    The crazy thing is this madarchod had a history of attacking woman in Latvia and he was let in here.

    Geezer,

    We’ll have to agree to differ. For me, capital punishment is a non-negotiable no-no. Birmingham 6 etc.

    Geezer,

    Lol at the bunnies, though. I’m thinking of getting a car sticker; ‘I don’t brake for rabbits.’

    Do for badgers, though. Those bastard can do some damage.

    It was a terrible crime, but i find the mob like mentality that displays little more than a blood lust after these things a little unsettling.

    Im also sadly resigned to the way this will be linked to ‘hoards of immigrants flooding this country’. Tragic though this was lets put it in some perspective.

  12. Rohin — on 29th March, 2006 at 10:10 pm  

    I don’t get you Kulvinder. I haven’t read lots about this case, but I don’t recall anyone mentioning ‘hoards of immigrants’. And blood lust is understandable if not condonable – imagine how the family felt when they found out their little girl had been strangled, raped and stabbed to death. I have no problem with mob mentality – as long as the person is proven guilty.

  13. Geezer — on 29th March, 2006 at 10:13 pm  

    For me capital punishment is fine especially when there is not a shadow of a doubt like with this guy.

    Do for badgers, though. Those bastard can do some damage[don]

    They can kill a dog in a one to one fight that’s why they tie them up when the “bait” them. I like their big white stripes it’s kind of like “I kick ass” badge.

    Im posting in anticipation of the press reactions tomorrow morning.

    And blood lust is understandable if not condonable – imagine how the family felt when they found out their little girl had been strangled, raped and stabbed to death.

    By that logic honour killings, or at the very least calling for them are understandable if not condonable.

    I have no problem with mob mentality – as long as the person is proven guilty.

    Accepting a mob mentality leads to accepting a mob justice – and lynching people you don’t like the look of.

    Viktor Dembovskis won’t be let free into society. Thats enough for me.

    There wasn’t a shadow of a doubt about the Birmingham six either :(

    ‘Accepting a mob mentality leads to accepting a mob justice’

    Spot on.

  17. Al-Hack — on 29th March, 2006 at 11:38 pm  

    Are you saying Kulvinder that justice has to be constantly second guessed?

  18. Kulvinder — on 30th March, 2006 at 1:13 pm  

    ?

  19. Tanvir — on 30th March, 2006 at 3:48 pm
