sher-e-punjab: don't do the crime if you can't do the time

Navjot Singh Siddhu, he of the limitless bounty of folk wisdom, was finally convicted of culpable homicide in relation to the death of a chap he and some similarly wise characters beat to death over a parking dispute. It took 18 years, but the victim's family is (as always) happy to hear the verdict come through, say reports.

As for Siddhu himself, he resigned his BJP seat to draw attention to the Congress snafu over another convicted felon, Shibbhu Soren, a move that Siddhu's flunkies said demonstrated the manor of a lion. A house divided cannot stand, Siddhu is rumored to have told his seniors in the BJP.

What I can't wait to hear, though, are Siddhu's takes on Tihar.

But a more important question is whether the political parties will demonstrate their, er, convictions with a real drive to push the criminals out (whether they're petty thugs and idiots or hardened gangsters). Attn Judges: I think there's a few guys out there responsible for a riot or too.

Shibbhu, Siddhu... Let's call the whole thing off.

Yes, its good that the family of Gurunam will get some sense of justice now. However, one must admit that Siddhu has some style now and he is a changed man.

You seem to be celebrating too early. Watch out for today's SC verdict. Temp reprieve? yeah, but then that could well be the end of your celebrations. With due sympathies to the victim's family..
