Showing no remorse, Muslim car thief, Majid Ali, 18, who smashed a woman over the head with a hammer as he tried to steal her Audi and left her partially blind, is jailed for just nine years. (No doubt he’ll be out in three)
TAPHAPS After finishing her workout routine, 24-year-old Blythe Mason-Boyle grabbed her keys and headed to the parking lot of Energie Fitness in Birmingham.
As the young woman unlocked her Audi A1, she was ambushed by 18-year-old Majid Ali (photo below), who was armed with a hammer and an inhumane disregard for life. Thinking only of stealing Mason-Boyle’s car, the teen began smashing his helpless female victim in the head and face as she cried out in horror.
Mason-Boyle was rushed to the hospital for gashes to her face and head as well as a fractured eye socket. Tragically, the young woman eventually learned that the blows to her eye had left her partially blind, possibly permanently, the Daily Mail reports.
Fortunately, detectives managed to trace Mason-Boyle’s stolen vehicle within 24 hours after the attack and identified Ali as the culprit. After a warrant was executed at his home, the bloodied hammer was discovered underneath his sofa-bed. The case was then built against him.
Ali denied charges of robbery, possession of an offensive weapon, and wounding with intent. During his trial, police testified that Ali took no responsibility for the grievous injuries he caused to Mason-Boyle. Luckily, Birmingham Crown Court took into account his merciless attitude once it came time for sentencing.
After expressing “no remorse,” Ali was found guilty and sentenced to 9 years in prison, which Detective Constable Rebecca Woodcock reiterated was to “ensure he has time to reflect” on his actions and, perhaps, find some remorse eventually. (HAH! Maybe when pigs fly)
Mason-Boyle still struggles to see clearly through her injured eye. It is unclear if she will ever fully regain her sight. Understandably, she has chosen to receive counseling in order to overcome the trauma of the heinous attack and learn to drive again without fear. Despite her trauma, she issued advice to others that they should be aware of their surroundings at all times.
Although Ali received a harsher sentence than the courts typically give in similar cases, it still doesn’t compare to the life sentence that Mason-Boyle received. For the rest of her life, she will be forced to manage her trauma and possibly even a permanent injury.
