The boy on your left is Steven Simpson. Steven suffered from Asperger’s Syndrome, a speech impediment and epilepsy. He was also openly gay.
The boy on your right is Jordan Sheard, scum.
Jordan Sheard killed Steven Simpson by setting him alight, at his groin, after he and his friends doused him in tanning oil. This was after a protracted evening of homophobic abuse, which included forcing him to strip and writing slurs including ‘I suck dick’ on Steven’s head and stomach.
This was after ‘befriending’ Steven on his 18th birthday and gatecrashing his party.
The punishment for homophobic murder? Three years and six months.
Sentencing, Judge Roger Keen described the incident as ‘good-natured horseplay’. It was even suggested Steven ‘enjoyed’ the bullying. That is because cruel intentions are interpreted as affection by those with Asperger’s, you moron.
The paltry sentence came after Jordan Sheard pleaded guilty to manslaughter, but not before lying and saying Steven set fire to himself.
In conclusion, one can’t help but wonder what the sentence, and media coverage of this story, would be like if Steven was any other colour but gay.
In other news, only a few days ago Judge Roger Keen sentenced a man to three years for receiving stolen goods.
Welcome to justice, Keen style.
According to Judge Roger Keen, homophobically abusing a mentally disabled gay teenager and then burning him alive is just 'good-natured horseplay', and only worthy of three years in prison. What a cunt. ,
