A war memorial is a sacred space where people can go to solemnly reflect on the sacrifices fallen soldiers made to preserve our freedoms. That’s why millions of people all over the world when Kelly Martin urinated on a war memorial in the United Kingdom.
Mad World News reported that Martin, a 42 year-old mother of five, urinated on a war memorial back in April in broad daylight, but she didn’t stop there. While out on bail, Martin returned to the memorial June and desecrated it once again. This time, Martin’s offense was even worse because she urinated on the memorial as locals were mourning the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, where more than one million men were wounded or killed, making it the bloodiest battle in human history.
This time, the jobless welfare leach was brought before a judge who was enraged by her shenanigans. He through the book at her and gave her a seven month sentence in prison for what she had done.
“Each of these offenses is so serious that only a custodial sentence is appropriate,” Judge John Lodge said during sentencing. “The two cases of outraging public decency involve urinating on a war memorial. Inevitably war memorials were constructed at the center of towns and villages so on a daily basis people could be reminded of the sacrifices made by people who died….What makes your case particularly bad is having been caught doing it one time, when the nation was commemorating the worst battle of the First World War you were caught doing it again in the middle of the day.”
The woman was also found guilty of assaulting a paramedic earlier on the day of her crime. She reportedly threw an empty bottle of Smirnoff vodka at his head before proceeding to rub her naked butt against his leg.
“The officer described her has having a beer in her hand and struggling to pull her trousers up, the officer then said he was disgusted and shocked to his core that someone could be so offensive,” the prosecutor said.
The woman was unfazed by the angry judge, as she screamed “f*ck this” when she was handed her sentence. While some felt like she got what she deserved, others believed the judge was too easy on her.
“I’m disappointed by the sentence that the judge gave but his hands were tied, he had no sentencing guidelines to work with,” Army veteran Kenneth Campbell, from Veterans Radio Net stated. “And that is why we will petitioning to have it put on the statue books, it needs to be put in black and white and made a crime on its own.”
