Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Luke 12:25-26

We can get away with mur.der....

So really, this probably shouldn't be funny, but I literally "LOL"ed, if you will.

From this article, came this quote: "A second man, cystic fibrosis sufferer Brian Shivers, 44, from Magherafelt, Co Derry, has also been charged with the killi.ngs. He was granted bail because of his condition."

I'm sorry? What was that last line? "granted bail because of his condition." BECAUSE the man has CF, he doesn't spend the rest of his life in jail (probably like his accomplice will) because of CF. Let's just make a list here of the good things about CF:
  • most of us are encouraged to eat lots so we can gain weight
  • some people get to skip out on gym classes in middle and high school (not me though)
  • we can get away with mu.rder!

How crazy.

It's probably because the jail doesn't want to pay for his medical costs. Granted, jails are funded by the state (and I'm assuming N. Ireland is no different here), but they are allotted only so much money for each prisoner and health care coverage is included. It's not financially sound for the jail to keep him, so they released him based on his condition...

Anjea just gave me the link to your blog, so I'm reading older posts. Thought I'd comment on this one!

They gave him bail because of his condition. That means they're not keeping him in jail before the trial. If he's found guilty, they'll probably still lock him up forever. :P
