Bryan Griffiths - Hunt Saboteur

Bryan Griffiths gyrocopter pilot and hunt saboteur was incredibly this week found not guilty of killing Trevor Morse hunt supporter when Trevor was basically decapitated by one of the gyrocopters blades. He didn't stand a chance as Bryan Griffiths manoeuvred his flying machine towards him as he stood blocking the machine's take off. You see the so called " hunt monitor" had been causing a nuisance to the hunt for a long time and had been the subject of numerous complaints to the police over safety concerns for both riders and their horses.
Of course, Griffiths knew exactly what he was doing as he arrogantly refused to stop and give way one inch to Trevor Morse. His lame excuse was that he thought he was going to be attacked by a mob of hunt supporters. Hmmmm. Griffiths passenger was John Curtin a convicted animal rights activist who spent two years in jail for planning to dig up the remains of the 10th Duke of Beaufort and send the head to the Princess Royal. Nice man that, bit of a nutter I would say !
Now I do not hunt, nor am I a hunt supporter, neither do I have any connection with the hunt in question. However, I do believe in the sanctity of human life and I have to say that I am at odds with people who put the life of animals before their fellow man.
There is no doubt that Griffiths was guilty of reckless behaviour which lead to the death of Trevor Morse. He should have brought his machine to a halt and switched off, had he done this Trevor Morse would still be alive. Maybe there was a slight risk to Bryan Griffiths but in the scheme of things I think the potential for a few cuts and bruises is far less tragic than the loss of human life. I am not sure what the jury had in mind when they returned a "not guilty" verdict but I hope they will bow their heads in shame for treating the loss of Trevor Morse's life with such contempt. This was a sad day for British justice.

A hunt supporter by any other name?
I wonder if a hunt member would have paid any attention to the safety of the other factions supporters.
This is a very biased opinion and not as the 'White Wolf' (peculiar self aggrandisement of ego to say the least) would have us believe is impartial.
