RIP Richard Wheeler

RIP Rich.

Was always one of the faces I remembered either down Hillsborough when I first started drinking as a whipper snapper or at away games but never actually knew him personally.

A couple of lads I know are massive mates with him and at least one was there on the fateful Saturday night.

Seemed an absolute top bloke with friends all over the Country and the World. 

So sad to have lost an 'adopted' Valley lad.

7 years for the Blades scumbag.  Shocking sentence really.

Be out in half that. 

He should have 7 for manslaughter and another ten for glassing two people.

 

 

But he's not gonna have an easy run apparently.

Hope you are right on that front.

Did not know about the glassing.  Same night ?

The list of offences certainly does not add up to 7 !!!

I can see why it’s so frustrating that a sentence is often halved. While I understand that people can have remorse etc, but in this case, the Mr Wheeler can’t have the chance to get half his life back.

Yes, there are times when horrible accidents happen, after a scuffle.. while it doesn’t make it ‘better’, but this bloke seemingly was consistently violent, and went back for more. 

He intended to cause damage.
