Amber Heard retains her L’oreal contract. Sarah Champion and Layla Moran remain as MPs and Nicole Lyons, walks free.
Ms Lyons wrote on Facebook that if she found the children who had knocked on her door and run away, she’d have ‘slit their throats’. Instead she consoled herself by driving her partners large BMW directly into them.
In a victim impact statement, one of the boys said he was still – unsurprisingly – ‘battling with anxiety’. The other said he couldn’t get the assailants ‘angry face and noise of engine out of his head’. Two young children mentally traumatised for life, let alone the broken legs and physical harm she had rained down upon them. Weeks spent in hospital recovering.
Yet Ms Lyons walked free from court with a suspended sentence and the admonishment that she ‘hadn’t covered herself in glory on that day’.
Does anyone think, for one second, that had it been a man who had wreaked such destruction on two innocent children, that he would have walked free?
How can we help any female perpetrator get the support they need when we refuse to recognise it?
