Scum-watch: Bouncy abuse.

One of the Sun's well-known quirks is its reliance on referring to convicted sex offenders variously as "beasts", "perverts", "maniacs", and even occasionally as "evil". While those sentenced for their crimes can quite reasonably be described in most cases as such (although I balk at applying the term "evil" to anyone), the Sun's use of such emotive language is in sharp contrast to what justice should be: balanced, accountable and not pushed over into seeking retribution or revenge for the sake of it. Sentimentality and emotion, precious as they are, should not be allowed to reign supreme.

It's therefore worth comparing today's Sun's treatment of a woman convicted of indecently assaulting two under-age boys with that of the bile and outrage thrown the way of men convicted of similar offences:

'Bouncy' sex mum is caged

A MUM who had sex with two under-age virgins was jailed for 18 months yesterday.

Bouncy castle hire boss Yvonne Renton, 39, was given nine months for indecently assaulting the boys, aged 14 and 15.

And she got another nine months for making a death threat to the 15-year-old in a vain attempt to intimidate him into not giving evidence.

Twice-wed Renton, a mother of two, looked tearful as she was sent down at Maidstone Crown Court.

Judge Jeremy Carey told her she used the boys for her own sexual gratification. The lads were friends of her son and helped her put up the castles.

The 15-year-old, with whom she had sex at least 20 times, was later diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic.

Judge Carey said: “He became infatuated with you and his fragile mental state was stretched beyond breaking point.”

The judge showed some mercy by telling Renton she could serve half her sentence on licence. She was also put on the sex offenders register.

Notice that there are no ad-hominem insults, no statements of outrage about the relatively short sentence given or other additional comment which usually marks other similar articles in the Sun. While there are no directly comparable articles with a man indecently assaulting two girls, here are some which are close to the crimes committed by Renton from the Sun's archive:

Perv 'shopped' for victims

A SEX fiend who used his local Tesco to find teenage victims was jailed for five years yesterday.

Shaun Barnwell, 23, lured three girls into an alley near the store and sexually assaulted them. One of his victims was just 14 — and the others were aged 16 and 19.

Even after he was caught and granted bail at a hostel he subjected another woman to a similar attack, Gloucester Crown Court heard.

Prosecuter Mary Harley said Barnwell chatted up his victims in the Tesco at Tetbury, Gloucs, while pretending to be shopping.

He persuaded the 16-year-old girl to go for a walk with him last March. When she spurned his advances he indecently assaulted her.

His next victim was the girl of 14, whom he groped in an alleyway. The 19-year-old was kept prisoner during a terrifying ordeal in which he tried to molest her.

Barnwell pleaded guilty and also admitted indecently assaulting a woman in Leicester when he was on bail.

Putting him on the sex offenders’ list indefinitely, recorder Peter Blair told him: “These were appalling offences.”

Perv's loophole let-off

A SCHEMING pervert who had sex with two young girls will serve only ONE YEAR in jail — because he exploited a loophole in the law.

The victims of internet paedophile Michael Wheeler, 36, were only 13, a court heard yesterday.

The maximum sentence for sexual intercourse with a girl that age is two years — but it is LIFE if they are younger.

Wheeler snared the two virgins through web chat rooms when they were only 11 and 12, then he “groomed” them until they were 13.

Cops believe he deliberately waited before having sex with them — knowing he would get a lighter sentence if caught.

The computer expert had posed as a randy 16-year-old lad and bombarded the two girls with hours of disgusting messages.

After winning their trust he arranged secret dates with them.

Even though they realised his age when they met him he kept them under his spell, Norwich Crown Court was told.

He indecently assaulted them and had unlawful sex with them in his car, at his computer firm office and at his father’s house.

The girls were pals but Wheeler persuaded them not to tell each other they were having sex.

His first victim told cops: “My innocence has gone, my friends at school have fallen out with me. I do not relate to boys any more.”

Separated Wheeler, from Cambridge, was arrested when the girls’ parents found out he had been meeting the youngsters.

Police believe he was involved with up to seven girls in the same class at the same school. Cops said last night he had been “priming” a third for sex.

Wheeler, who admitted 11 offences, was jailed for three years and put on the sex offenders’ register for life.

But he could be free next summer, because of remission and time spent in custody.

Det Insp Neil Smith, who led the inquiry, said after the hearing: “I’ve no doubt he will re-offend. He is a very, very dangerous man.”

The Government is set to close the sentencing loophole this year.

Girl raped by 'gay' migrant

AN asylum seeker with HIV raped a girl of 17 and got another aged 14 pregnant — after winning permission to stay in Britain by claiming he was GAY.

Sex beast Gabriel Vengesai, 45, lied that he faced persecution as a homosexual in his native Zimbabwe, a jury heard.

But all along he had a GIRLFRIEND. After duping officials, he preyed on the 14-year-old daughter of a woman he knew.

Evil Vengesai never told the youngster he had HIV. She went on to have his child, although miraculously mother and baby both escaped infection.

Cops arrested the monster only for him to be freed on BAIL. He then lured the 17-year-old to his flat in Aldershot, Hants, and savagely raped her.

Yesterday the maniac was caged indefinitely after a judge branded him a “serious risk” to the public.

Judge Tom Longbotham ordered him to serve at least 6½ years, declaring: “Your continuing presence is detrimental to this country and this court recommends your deportation at the end of your sentence.”

The 17-year-old, who suffered internal injuries as Vengesai brutally attacked her, faced the ordeal of giving evidence against him still not knowing if she had HIV.

It was only after a jury convicted him of rape that she got the all-clear.

Vengesai, who came to Britain in 1996, was also found guilty of having sex with the younger girl.

Judge Longbotham said it was only luck that Vengesai’s victims escaped infection. A report read out at Winchester Crown Court said of the brute, who shunned condoms: “Vengesai thinks he is entitled to sex as a male, and women need sex.”

The 17-year-old’s mum said after the trial: “This man came to Britain on the pretext of being a practising homosexual, who on arrival in this country was diagnosed as HIV positive.

“Upon release we would expect the immigration office to act quickly and deport this hideous man so he can do no further damage to the young girls in our communities.”

Mooner, over on the Scum's Myspace-style community, seems to have noticed the difference too:


I don't know whether that entered the judge's mind, but I'm more than certain that's the reason that the Sun didn't attack Renton with the full force it usually reserves for sex offenders. I am not in any way defending those convicted of such damaging, horrific crimes, but standards ought to be the same. The difference is that one of main fantasies of young men is often to be "taken in hand" by an older woman; this view means that potentially mentally destructive offences are often brushed over or dismissed as being life-enhancing, when if it was a man taking advantage of a similar aged girl, the difference of reaction would be palpable, as shown by the above articles.

Keeping with the same theme, today's Sun continues with yet more police supplied speculation about the killer of Laila Rezk:

THE killer of glamorous mum-of-two Laila Rezk is a twisted sex beast, police believe.

Tests failed to find any evidence the 51-year-old was raped but the state of her clothes indicated a “sexual element” to the murder.

Laila may have been followed after getting off a bus before the savage attack at her £600,000 home in Kingston Vale, South West London.

She was found an hour later by her son Tamer, 20, and daughter Dina, 22, and died the next day.

Cops said the killer may have used his fists to pummel her.

In other words, the police are clutching at straws, have no idea who committed the crime and are potentially walking down completely wrong paths. Brilliant!

Finally, the Scum brings us "news" that its page 3 idol Keeley is apparently, the perfect woman:

PAGE 3 beauty Keeley Hazell is officially the perfect woman, according to a new study.

Keeley has all the attributes men desire including long brunette hair, sparkling eyes and full natural lips.

Our 20-year-old from Bromley, Kent, is their ideal height — around 5ft5ins — looks great in a floral dress and has good teeth and a friendly smile.

Thousands of men were quizzed for the poll in Grazia magazine. As well as their likes, fellas also revealed dislikes — moody, broody, bolshy or boozy girls.

Nine out of ten wanted women to be normal weight “with curves”. No wonder they’ve all gone head over Keel’s.

Translated, this means that the majority of men like girls they don't know, who get their big tits out for national newspapers, and like their women not to be independent, introverted or drunkards. Who would have thought it?
