It’s a bit of perverse vigilante justice chased with a bit more of perverse vigilante justice. Roy Morris James Batemand and Richard Robert Charles Wilde took matters into their own hands when the two traveled to Torrensville, Australia, to beat up a notorious drug dealer. However, they didn’t beat him up because he was dealing drugs. They beat him up because he was selling methamphetamine laced with snot in an attempt to poison drug users.
Yeah, the whole story is confusing. Two guys beat up a drug dealer who was sabotaging his own drugs to hurt drug users. Well, not just beat him up… they hit him with a bat, then ran him over with their car. That’s a little more than a beating. For their crimes, Bateman has been sentenced to eight years in jail (he drove the squashing car), while Wilde got four years. It’s probably a light sentence, but it was a crooked drug dealer they clobbered, not an innocent person.
