Commenting article: Shields Spends First Night at Home since Transfer from Bulgarian Prison

UK football hooligan Michael Shields has spent his first night at home since being jailed in Bulgaria in 2005. The 22-year-old is serving a 10-year sentence for the attempted murder of Bulgarian barman, Martin Georgiev, in May 2005, the BBC reported Wednesday.

Shields was transferred from Bulgaria to the UK in 2006 and is serving his sentence at Thorn Cross Prison in Warrington, near Liverpool.

Issue a pardon!? Spent two nights at home!?

They should have kept that dumb pale faced fack in the Bulgarian prison for the entire sentence.

shields was for shore fitted up, or was defending him self against the bulgarian abusers who were lieing, robbing, cheating and stealing from him!!!!

shields is a victim and example of the corruption that has poisioned bulgarian society.

shows how the bulgarian police, courts and whole system is geared towards biased and discrimination. i imagine that bulgarians are full of lot of innocent people, fitted up, as the real crimminals are all out walking the streets!

lets hope that many more foreigners stand up against bulgarian losers and thieves and kick the f@@k@@g sh@t out o them to teach bulgarians that if youi gonna rob and cheat people then u r risking u life!!!!

well done michhael :o)

I am sure that Bulgarians can't wait for drunk British imbecilities, who can hardly spell and write, to sort out their country! Smashing the head of a barman was an amazing and valid contribution to the country's fight against corruption, for instance.

Vanchi, What are you trying to say, if I were to hit someone like Chushki over the head it would hurt him, he is a Bulgarian isn,t he. Well the people of the Western Europe have always learned that, where there is no sense there is no feelings. So we think its not possible to hurt the Bulgarian. LoL

Good Day, Judge Advocaado,
I thought you had retired yet again after yesterday's online fight. But you managed to overcome the headache and are back for the joy of our eyes. I am not convinced Chushki is Bulgarian, you should ask him. As far as the other statement I find it immature and primitive. What do you mean by 'we, the Westerners'? It sounds like the BORG to me: ' We are the Collective!

Hello Vanchi, Please read my post again and then tell me where I said "we" the Westerners. I,m beginning to think you are as dumb as Nellie (god forbid that)

Chushki - 26 Feb 2009 // 14:43:54

Judge Advocado Retard, clearly you are pining back to the 'good old days' when you were in prison and were raped daily by the gypsy inmates. McDonalds not what it was cracked up to be?

GO CHUSHKI!!!!!!!!!!

van4eto - 26 Feb 2009 // 14:54:43

Dear Advocadoo,
I'd rather be as dumb as Nelly then as retarded as you!

btw whats up with the gang of our own BG idiots who killed a student beating him to death and landing 15 kicks in his head while he was on the ground?

As far as I remember Shields was tried and sentenced in a matter of 2 days or so while nobody talks about this trial.

Editorial: The myth of fingerprints
17 September 2005
Magazine issue 2517

In June 2002, a corpse turned up near Las Vegas. A fingerprint taken from the body matched one from Kathleen Hatfield of Sonoma county, California. Hatfield's mother was notified, funeral arrangements were made and her grave dug. But before the body could be interred, Hatfield turned up alive and well.

Neville Lee was arrested in 1991 in Nottinghamshire, UK, for allegedly raping an 11-year-old girl. The case rested on fingerprint evidence. He was assaulted in jail and his home was wrecked by vigilantes. It was only after another person confessed to the crime that Lee was released.

Last year, an Oregon lawyer named Brandon Mayfield was held in connection with the Madrid bombings after his fingerprint was supposedly found on a bag in the Spanish capital. Only after several weeks did the Spanish police attribute the print to Ouhnane Daoud, an Algerian living in Spain.
