Thread Name: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
Subject: RE: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
yes ,but in any judgement the magnitude of a crime does make a difference, judgements are being made about Peter Kennedy ,it needs to be put in perspective.
If he allegedly misappropriated royalties the size and the amount does make a difference. any judge , magistrate, takes the size of an offence into consideration when sentencing, so this is important . while I disapprove of dishonesty, And have made it clear I would not have acted like this, no one yet has proved that he was legally not entitled to do this.
Before anyone starts ranting on about principles, let me say everything here is only alleged. and when principles come in the door CommonSense goes out the window.
Peter kennedy may have not been a saint , and un doubtedly was not as important as Seamus Ennis,but through his collections has given more pleasure and knowledge and done more good than bad , and his legacy is plus 7 out of ten as far as I am concerned.
