'Human Shield' Jailed For Putting Teenager in Coma
Alleged "peace activist" and "pacifist" Christiaan Briggs has been sentenced to eight months for cold-cocking a teenager, resulting in traumatic brain injury when the teen's head struck the pavement, in a dispute over Briggs' ogling of the teen's girlfriend.
From Life Style Extra (UK):
A smirking peace activist who left a rising rock star fighting for his life after a row over his girlfriend was jailed for eight months today. Christiaan Briggs, 30, attacked 19-year-old singer Billy Leeson and left him in a coma, after Mr Leeson asked him to stop staring at his girlfriend on a late night number 29 bus. After punching the teenager Briggs, who went to Iraq as a peace activist in 2003, walked away "smirking". Mr Leeson fell into a coma when he hit his head in the pavement and the judge at Snaresbrook Crown Court said: "It was obviously a miracle that he lived."Briggs' lawyer argued for leniency (apparently successfully, given the wrist-slap sentence) saying that Briggs was a "committed pacifist" who was "absolutely horrified by his behaviour." I guess you can tell by the smirk. Briggs' swinish behavior perfectly illustrates the utter arrogance of the mindset that leads people to become human shields for barbaric regimes. It's not as unusual as it sounds for peace types to show vicious tendencies. A year ago, Quakers planned and held a series of death parties to celebrate the 2000th US servicemember killed, claiming they were commemorations. Via Are We Lumberjacks.

Everyone knows the Liberals like to use other means, like slashing your tires if you have a "Bush" bumper sticker, keying your car, cutting you off on the highway or breaking campaign signs in your law.
They'll damage your property at the drop of a hat, unusual to see one with the balls to confront someone.

He'll be traded for a pack of smokes, and be everyone's Girlfriend.

Perhaps the Sideshow-Bob character was based on him; you know with the diabolical duplicity etc....

I'm more afraid of Liberal violence now that I'm a conservative than I was of conservative violence when I was a Lib because at least I always knew conservatives where law-abiding-- unlike these lawless Libs who actually take pride in bucking the law and have no real moral compass.
So I'm not one bit surprised that this human shield POS caved someone's skull in. As an ex-Liberal myself, who used to work in the non-profit sector filled with Lefty do-gooders like this, I can attest to the fact that even though they are consumed with a desire to "make the world a better place", they treat people on an individual level like they were dog poop. They "care" about humanity on a macro level, but on a micro level they are uncaring spiteful sods.

A 'committed pacifist' with a conviction for GBH (grievous bodily harm).
A serious assault resulting in brain damage (Leeson is learning how to walk again) gets an 8 month wrist-slap.
A judge says Briggs almost killed Leeson, but praises him anyway.
Disgusting. If Briggs can get eight months for crippling and nearly killing a guy, I'd happily pay £100 fine to wipe that shit-eating grin off his face.

Wasn't it the lefturd George Galloway that said assassinating Tony Blair would be morally justified? Wasn't it mama Sheehan who fantacized out loud about assassinating George Bush? Don't lefturds regularly assault and batter conservative speakers on campus? You better believe violence from a lefturd.
