THIS is a crime???

"A man was today sentenced in Wellington District Court to nine months in prison for bigamy.
Mohammad Waseem, 39, of Tauranga, had earlier pleaded guilty to being married to two women at the same time..."

Don't the courts have better things to to- like deal with crooks! Why this so-called crime gets a custodial sentence is a complete mystery.

Perhaps the second wife should have face the same kangaroo court charges- after all- ignorance is no defense!

But really, when far more serious offenses- ones with actual victims- get fines or community service- what are these taxpayer funded wankers that make a mockery of the 'Justice' in their department thinking!

Oh- of course- he didn't to the paperwork for a legal divorce and some lawyer in the judges club missed out on his pimp money!

9 months, damn!! We're hard pressed to get that sort of sentence for pedophiles over here.

The reason is simple: he's a bloke and it's a crime against wimmin.

He's got TWO mothers-in-law! Hasn't the poor bugger suffered enough???

He would have been better of ripping off taxpayers $800,000.

Then he would have just changed the law to make it alright.

I would say that he has served his sentence - unless of course he asked to be locked away.
