but in the same week a girl at uni got away with stabbing her boyfriend with a bread knife and spared jail because she was "to clever" according to the judge

I'd have thought doing a wheelie and playing with your backpack was quite clever too :lol:

There is a “superoptimism” in which he regards the crime as a fait accompli. His experience supports this certainty. He knows the likelihood of being arrested is low. He previously has gotten away with crimes without anyone suspecting him as the perpetrator. Aware of the possibility that he could slip up, he is certain that this will not happen “this time.”

One offender observed in a conversation with me that superoptimism “kills criminals more than anything else.” As an offender gets away with more and more crimes, he becomes emboldened and develops a sense of invulnerability. Then he may take greater chances. In some cases, the use of mind-altering substances contributes to recklessness. “Drugs knock off my caution,” one man told me. Some criminals who get away with complicated crimes subsequently let down their guard while committing a relatively minor offense

Seems fair enough to me. My friends daughter was killed by an idiot driver - it's not a computer game without real life consequences.
