Define 'Full force of the Law'

#1
DC has openly warned those caught up in the rioting that they will be tracked down and will 'face the full force of the law'

(That should strike fear into most decent minded people.)

At Highbury Magistrate's Court earlier today a number of those arrested faced their charges.
19 year old Daniel Atto pleaded guilty to stealing two t-shirts.
He was sentenced to one day in prison....

..but because he'd already served that time in custody he was immediately released....



You couldn't make it up........

He must have had previous. Most criminal offences in the UK are now "disposed of" by means of a police caution.

'Full force of the law' means exactly the same thing as 'big society'.

Noun: 'a soundbite to be deployed in the presence of journalists in order to avoid actually doing anything'.

Example: "Trevor! You gonna take those bins out?!" "Football's on, love. I'll deploy the full force of the law on 'em."

I've searched the 'net for a link to this story and found nothing, what's your source?

I believe 10 years is the max for rioting and 14 years for burglary/looting. I would expect the full force to be maximum in both cases and not to be served concurrently but sequentially so when when one sentence finishes the next starts. No parole, no time off for good behaviour, that is the full force of the law.

Which does not have a snowball's chance in hell of ever happening in Britain.

the full force of the law in my books is to build wire compounds and stick the little ******* in it under canvas for the next six months. They can all go and do their community service by being marched out wearing their orange traccys with a few "Lads" as escort clearing up the mess and litter. I'd pray for a hard winter, Dream on, for this to happen CMD will have to grow a set throw out the Human Rights fiasco and give the Police some teeth which means getting rid of most of the senior officers who are more limp than a limp thing

Still looking for the story, or a link. Or is this just BS?

This I know but it felt good dreaming and typing it, for a brief moment I was in a country that new how to deal with individuals such as those we have seen over the last week.

Thank god I live in a far safer place than Britain.Thailand has it's problems,but the total anarchy of Britain under a "Conservative" government is a comptempable joke of the first order.

Britain needs to extablish a prison system in South Georgia to incarate the chavscum.Hopefully none would survive a winter there.

And to back up the rhetoric the Prime Minister has promised to make available baton rounds and water cannon, which require 24 hours notice. This statement, which must have been sketched out on the back of a chinese menu, probably follows a briefing from the president of ACPO that the equipment is inappropriate for the mission and therefore is unlikely to be requested.

Full force of the Law is when feral youths and other similar samples of wildlife go and steal, pillage, ignite and try to kill innocent people right under the noses of police officers knowing that said police officers are powerless to act thanks to the shit that is Tony Blair and his ****ing loonieleft twats who signed upto the Human Rights act. Despite Davy Camerons reassurances to the contrary they have already been charged sentenced and freed to carry on.

If true, depressing but not surprising.

Looking on the bright side however, one days sentence equals a lifetime of membership on the fingerprint/DNA database, making it so much easier for the future!
