"The high court in the Indian city of Mumbai has suspended Bollywood star Salman Khan's sentence for a 2002 hit-and-run conviction, pending his appeal.
Khan was convicted on Wednesday by a lower court of culpable homicide.
The court sentenced the actor to five years in prison for killing Noor Ullah Khan by driving over him as he slept on a pavement. Four others were injured.
Many expected Khan to be jailed on Friday but the court extended bail. A final appeal hearing is due in July.'
We now know why the statue of Lady Justice has a blindfold:
When justice for some equals freedom even though they
are guilty of a hit and run resulting in a death, you
have to ask: are his lawyers a dream team or do you follow
How much was the payoff to the judges who freed a killer.
I don't worry as my home is not in India...but who will die
if a drunk is allowed to drive, and how many people must
die before this drunk driver is behind bars.
In other countries, he would have to appeal and wait for the decision while he,s in jail serving his sentence. IF the appeal was successful, the sentence would be reduced, But, he would not be free until he had served a sentence of some sort for killing somebody
He is sticking two fingers up and laughing at the law that the rest of the country has to abide.
