Try to kill a book reviewer? You get imprisoned.

British Writer Tracks Down Teen Who Gave His Book a Bad Review, Smashes Her With Wine Bottle.

I have been checking for updates on this horrific story for weeks now. I’m late with the news because I’ve been away on a trip to the beach.

However, I can happily report that Richard Brittain has been imprisoned for travelling to Scotland to smash a wine bottle over the head of a teenager who gave him a bad book review.

Occasionally the justice system works. On the other hand, a sentence of thirty months isn’t much for attempted murder (which is what it was, regardless of what a lawyer might argue).
