Stop Mcleish from roaming our streets
Darrell Mcleish fatally stabbed David Rodway in the head with a screwdriver on May 6th 2006 and is set to go on day release after just 17 months. Darrell McLeish was 19 when he was given an indefinite hospital order under the Mental Health Act for killing David Rodway in Bromley town centre. But two years after the attack it has been revealed McLeish, is set to be allowed to go on day release from his medium-security hospital. Bromley police borough commander Chief Superintendent Charles Griggs is also angry at the news. He said: "I\'m outraged. How can someone who was so ill that he couldn\'t be given a prison sentence 17 months ago have made such a miraculous recovery that he\'s fit to be released "I\'m no doctor but I find it bizarre." Judges at the Old Bailey handed McLeish the hospital order on December 15, 2006, after he pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. At the time of his arrest on May 13, 2006, he asked a police officer: "How long would I have to serve before I go on parole for murder" He has convictions for common assault on a police officer and inflicting actual bodily harm after attacking a woman with a key. McLeish also has a conviction for a public order offence, where he threatened a man with a fork in a pub. He was also on bail at the time of David\'s murder for stabbing somebody else. The system has already let us down once, please help us to stop this from happening again.
