When you are locked up and looking at a long stretch in prison, you might start thinking about making some deals to get a lighter sentence. One criminal in (Formerly Great) Britain decided to go one better. He created the crimes that he reported on.
He said Haase and Bennett, while in custody awaiting trial, pretended to provide information about guns in the Liverpool, Manchester and North Wales areas.
But in fact they had persuaded accomplices on the outside to buy guns and then hide them in pre-arranged places so Haase and Bennett could curry favour with the authorities. One gun left near the ferry terminal at Holyhead in north Wales was designed to incriminate the IRA.
So, let me get this straight. There are so many guns in (Formerly Great) Britain that crooks in jail were able to get their friends to buy and plant about 150 of them for cops to find, just to get their sentences reduced? That doesn’t sound like they are all that hard to find.
Gun control is a miserable failure.
