No good deed goes unpunished

Okay, if I had made this up you would all be saying, "Kinda funny but just too ridiculous".

A former soldier who handed a discarded shotgun in to police faces at least five years imprisonment for "doing his duty".

There's just too much fail to really quote it all, but that sums it up right there. He saw a "black bin liner" near his garden. He checked it out and found a sawed off shotgun with two rounds for it.

Being a good citizen, he took it to the police and they arrested him and then the prosecutor decided to go to trial and then the jury found him guilty.
Too bad he didn't realize Britain doesn't have citizens anymore, they have subjects again.

Quote
Judge Christopher Critchlow said: "This is an unusual case, but in law there is no dispute that Mr Clarke has no defence to this charge.
"The intention of anybody possessing a firearm is irrelevant."

Apparently, they're supposed to call their mommie....errr.... the police and not touch the evil gun, just cower in fear until the police take the bad gun away.

Via Cato, who calls it , "Beyond Parody".
Now I like Cato, but "beyond parody"? Where have they been the last 8 years? This is just the obvious progression.
