Celine Cawley was one of the Bond girls that starred along side Roger Moore, today her husband was sentenced for her brutal killing. Finally today the criminal case which I have been talking about for some time came to an end. The man who killed his actress wife by smashing her head in with a brick three times was today sentenced to 6 years and 11 months....see full up dated details on my Hub "The Jury Is Out"...
Not near long enough...for a senseless killing (bashing a womans brain in is an horrific act of unimaginable violence)...get a rope! This sentence is a slap in the face to anyone that was family or friend to this person: Celine Cawley...and does little to protect society...as I doubt...almost 7 years is enough of a punishment for this person to re-think...and rehabilitate himself to keep him from doing something like this again!
thanks manly for those comments.....he will be released April 2015, due to remission...... people very angry here....he smashed her head in three times with a brick but the jury found that the Prosecution did not prove intent to cause harm... what can you say....
Deb, they found him guilty of manslaughter...how I dont know but that was the verdict
I would have thought I brick would count as a weapon in this case. How would it not cause harm. I agree that is an extremely light sentence for a murder.
the full details of the case are on my hub "The Jury is out"....but it does not make much sense that someone can use a brick and it is not called murder but manslaughter
A brick used as a weapon to bludgeon to death a woman is not considered intent to cause harm? I know Texas has been accused of using the death penalty a little too much but this dude would certainly have received it here!
Don't know nearly enough as you think you do, come to Texas and commit a capital offense and see how quick you kiss the baby!
I'm tempting you! Come on down and try it out, I can take you to a few places and let you express your views and you will get every opportunity to kill someone. Please Mark, come to Texas, drop you off on Telephone road and you can show how Manly you are! After the first 15 minutes your legs will have been shaved and they will have traded you for candy bars! Please Mark for the love of God come show us how to do it.
Oh, I have been to Texas. Loved it. I even visited the National Barbed Wire Museum, which has a massive ball of barbed wire outside.
I was the third visitor that year. In july.
It has some rough places, but I never felt the need to kill anyone. Kansas City on the other hand......
I have shown you my favorite French magazine I thought?
Man... i really enjoyed that "Barb Wire" museum...went i went to see it...I still have a souvenir piece of 1821 barb wire from there!...you were third visitor for the year?...When I went...I was the first one in two years...to stop in for a visit! Loving that "Soldier of Surrender" magazine
The lady in change said she had been "rushed off her feet," and tried to sell me a three years out of date Mars bar.
Never knew there was that many different types of barbed wire. Surreal. But great place. I sort of wish I had joined the National Barbed Wire Collectors Association while I was there. It was only $25 and you got a free belt buckle.
It was an interesting place...a different take on our Frontier History...'cause...barb-wired sure changed many things...! Cool...a belt buckle...really...did it have barbed wire around it?
You're from France? I'm so sorry that explains everything! Don't worry you've only been brainwashed with liberal-surrender monkey philosophies. I know of a European deprograming center. Now thats funny!
"liberal-surrender monkey philosophies."
That is funny!
"brainwashed with liberal-surrender monkey philosophies" Your a gosh-darn genius...with that one...sneak!
As a Jewess, I know of hundreds: Auschwitz not even the worst. That's funny, too.
Texas does not use the death penalty enough to suit any number of women SURVIVORS of just such viciousness!! Texas could fry them one a day, everyday -- and include child molesters in the tally -- and that would please at least 20,000 brutalized American and children. All 50 states need to be "dispatching as God's emails" ten times more than they do, and the death penalty should be mandatory in nationwide.
I am often shocked by some of the things the courts do and senteces passed to criminals. I read one of a child pornographer who got probation because the judge thought his small stature (5'2") would make him a target in prison.
He needs to be a target!
I would really wish I could say this is "unbelievable'...as bizarre a ruling as it was...Why in the world would a judge care more the convicted criminal...than the abused child victim. This is a truly sick case demonstrating that...that judge...is no real judge...and should be judged unfit...to ever be a judge...again!
I remember that case, some Judges should be shot!
Edmond, Oklahoma, last month sentenced one of their firefighters to ONE YEAR in county jail for child pornography involving a child under 10. The judge took into account his "honorable" career in protecting Edmond from arsonists.
I think the Daniel Craig 007 should pay the man a little visit.
6 years only?? and he gets to sit in a jail where he can watch telly and eat good food??? seriously the western world needs to learn how to really punish hideous crimes like these..
If this was Saudi Arabia or Nigeria where the Sharia Law rules, this man's only option is to choose which way to die.. either hang him, firing squad, or die exactly how he killed his victim.. you might as well give free candy and check him in the Mariott hotel as that's not paying for such a horrific crime like that...
If we had similar laws here then perhaps those from The Middle East and Nigeria who come here to COMMITT their comes would stay home and there would be a few less rapes in America. Too bad those same countries do not deal as harshly for acts of terrorism, including abroad. Saudi Arabia also executes women for committing adultry, whether they did nor not, just based on the word of the husband who usually has several other wives. That country also sends its child molesters to America while employing them at ARAMCO in Houston since, unless they become serial killers (and many do) they won't be prosecuted too harshly. Some are. Most aren't.
...in the old days, people would find a tall tree and a rope for things like that. String that bastard up and let 'em swing.
Really, I don't know how people can get away with stuff like that. It shocks me everytime I read about those types of things.
McLean, Texas...off 'ol 66...but it has a few more visitors than three a year...I think ?
Like a good Texan I wouldn't walk a mile to see a pissant eat a bale of hay so I'm damn sure not going to the Panhandle. Gonna have to skip the barbed wire museum in favor of the San Antonio zoo, I hear they got critters there.
Thats a fer piece to go to look at something I can see out my front door.
Yep...8 plus hours from your neck of the woods...at least...guess you'll have to go study a couple strands out at your deer lease...instead...They should be on the web...in this day and time...it was a pretty substantial exhibit...i don't think that museum is history...yet!
Thats the problem with being centrally located, but we got us a Round Rock!
Couldn't believe when i was up in Amarillo...last Summer...and a guy told me it was approx. 8 hours to Austin...dang...Texas is Big! here's the link to that museum: http://barbwiremuseum.com/DevilsRopeMuseum.htm
He certainly is. Any way - they got critturs. Mostly dead critturs, but there were critters.
I can go to Waco and see the Dr Pepper museum, now thats entertainment!
Almost 7 years!!!!???? Whaaaaa? Isn't that how long the Americans who took Haitian children over the border can go to jail? I think I saw up to 25 years.

The difference between Murder and Man-Slaughter? (sorry it's a depressing Q)A man in UK set fire to his friends house because he wasn't allowed into his party. Two people died. The man was cleared of Murder but charged with Man-Slaughter...? To me, both words mean the same. Enlighten me...

i disagree with the death penalty for several reasons.it's not a deterrant. in one study, murder rates actually rose after an execution. it was as if the stae were saying, "it's okay to kill. we do."there but for the grace of god go i. the only reasons i'm not a murderer are good genes...

I'll pick up on this thread where I left off in the last, but on a new topic. The last one was about a flaw in Christian theology, namely, the impossible definition of God. This one is about protective coloring in the Christian mentality; a smokescreen; the corrupt use of misdirection,...
