If You’re White, and a Girl, and Talented… Stab Away… It’s OK

Geesh.  Justice?  Nope, justice is well and truly dead.

A top University of Oxford student who stabbed her boyfriend could be spared jail because of her intelligence and the possibility it would damage her career.   Aspiring heart surgeon Lavinia Woodward, 24, met the man on Tinder but then punched and swiped at him with a bread knife during a drink-and-drug fuelled row.  She then stabbed the Cambridge-educated boyfriend in the leg before hurling a laptop, glass and a jam jar at him at iconic Christ Church college, Oxford.

She’s a treasure.  Oh, here’s the best bit…

Woodward admitted a charge of unlawful wounding at Oxford Crown Court and Judge Ian Pringle said the offence would normally mean a custodial sentence.  But he then delayed sentencing for a period of four months and hinted she will not be jailed – because of her ”extraordinary” talent. The court was told her college will allow her to return to in October because she “is that bright” and has had articles published in medical journals.  Judge Pringle said jailing her could be unfair because it could affect her career.

She’s just too bright for jail…  Geesh.  Stupid injustice.
