What is the world coming to when a poor 'Triple Killer' has to suffer toothache at Her Majesty's Pleasure? My heart bleeds for him. (NOT!)
Michael Steele (Essex Boys gangland killings) had his tears of pain turn to tears of laughter as he was awarded 44,500 pounds sterling in damages. Poor soul had to wait a year for an appointment which he desperately needed to replace a gold filling.
Oops! Perhaps the paperwork went astray as he was shuffled amongst FIVE HIGH SECURITY JAILS. Or maybe prison officials were having a laugh as he rolled around in cell in agony for seven years. He claims his suffering was indeed made worse as he was locked in a cell with nothing else to do but think about his toothache.
How much time did he have left to think about the men's whose lives were taken, Patrick Tate, Anthony Tucker and Craig Rolfe?
The Court System isn't ALL bad.....Michael WAS to be awarded 66,000 pounds sterling but it was reduced to a mere 44 000 pounds sterling following an appeal.
The case award is dwarfed by the cost of the court case. Typical?! The cost of the case will run into 6 figures.
Poor Michael had his legal aid withdrawn and had to represent himself.
I wonder what he'll do with all of that money. Go on a World Cruise perhaps?
So, what have we learned from this? If you have rotten teeth, don't kill anyone until AFTER you had your teeth fixed UNLESS you wish to writhe in pain in a prison cell for years. But if you CAN take the pain - it's worth it for the gain.
