    Of course its too short.

    Hes already hated out there though and this sentence is going to add to that.

    Wouldn't like to be him walking the streets.

    You could argue, that he caused the deaths, by speeding !

    If he wasn't speeding, there would have been no reason to stop him.

    I agree you could argue that he had a partial responsibility but the trouble is where do you stop.Maybe he should have stayed in bed.

    I agree that the sentence is too short but he didn’t cause the deaths of the police officers. The lorry driver who hit them, has been sentenced to 22 years in prison because he was high on drugs and suffering hallucinations.

    He didn't cause the deaths, there was a lorry driver off his face who caused the deaths. He shouldn't be getting away with the public anger just because this guy was a total asshole.

    I don't see how you can argue even partial repsonsibility for the deaths. If Mr Smith hits a pedestrian while driving to see his mum, is the mum partly responsible?

    After all, Mr Smith wouldn't be on that road at the time if not for her, just as the police wouldn't have been there but for Pusey.

    You can't dig that deep, just blame him for what he actually chose to do.

    what a horrible human being. However, is being a sick **** taunting others really a crime?

    He has been on remand for about 12 mths, obviously has some sort of disorder and is being looked at for other things
    So is paying quite a price. Let’s face it he’s a marked man, the bill won’t let this slide.

    Agree with this is obviously a scumbag of the highest order but I don't know what more you can do.

    He clearly needs jail time but also a psychiatrist to work out why he would do such a thing

    I can't imagine what was going on upstairs whilst he filmed people dying

    He needs punishment for what he did and treatment as he's clearly not well

    It is , outraging public decency

    He's got a complex personality disorder according to the judge

    He's clearly not well and once he's been punished he needs treatment

    My take on this, is in no way can the cause of these deaths be blamed or even partially blamed on Pusey. That was 100% down to the Lorry driver.
    The filming of the police as they lay dying in agony is absolutely despicable and depraved though. It doesnít surprise me, with the direction society is moving in.
    Respect seems to be disappearing
    in all walks of modern day life.
    Not sure if a long prison stretch in this case is the answer either.
    You would like to think country wide naming and shaming would put other folk off acting in this way, but somehow i doubt it would deter other despicable pricks.

    I'm quite sure this could have happened 50, 60, 100 years ago, but we didn't have phones, social media or police body cameras to find out about it.

    He won't be the first man ever to taunt a dying police officer.

    I think humans have always been depraved its just there are more ways to display it now

    Is filming a police officer doing his or her duty more depraved than a group of blokes on the Internet sharing videos of women being gang raped ? Which happens as does horrific child abuse forums ?

    At the end of the second World War partisans in chezchoslovakia went round in gangs finding people of German ethnic origin raping the women and hanging the children

    Mans inhumanity to Man has always been there

    RIP to those police officers 🙏 😢

    You are quite right. The world has always had itís fair share of despicable cu*nts. But you surely canít dispute the fact that respect is being lost all over the place.

    I think this is more about his mental illness than less respect amongst society.

    Did you know that there are diaries written in the 16th century where they complain about the young generation lacking respect? Walking round with large ruffles or short pantaloons or something.

    Its probably the opposite and it could be argued that respect is at its greatest levels and has been rising steadily with the advancement of education and society.
