Hither Green 'burglar' stabbing: Man, 78, arrested

I just love the way the press is hyping all the escalation, throwing angered faces faeces and opinion all over the media, its easy to spot and find anyone concerned, its almost like they would love a good stabbing or 2 outside of London to outrage about on the front pages.
Fixed, free of charge, etc
 
Nah, that's elephants, sadly it's unlikely they will have a few of those drawing the tacky hearse. It would add some comedy value though.

No doubt there will be many pikey's following on foot so it would be interesting to watch them tramping through elephant size turds.

Horses are scared of Elephant's?

No! We do not want to hurt the horses, just scare them.
I have nothing against dumb animals getting hurt.
Horses are another story.
They would be gypsy nags, not proper thoroughbreds.
If they are pulling a hearse, they won't be gyppo nags. The companies around the area that do horse drawn hearse look after their horses and look the business. We have quite a few horse drawn hearse around here in SE London.

Either way .... a burglar looking for some weed is probably just looking up at the stars now ...

I predict a rise in folk taking on the scrotes now, even corner shops and the like ...
One can but hope... ;-)

I take your point. As much as it is difficult to express any sympathy for this person or any other in similar circumstances, I think there should be a public statement clarifying the law and cautioning people against taking extreme measures.

I certainly do not want to see a rise in burglars deaths because there will be a reprisals and more thieves will be even more likely to offer a much higher level of violence to victims resulting in even more deaths of victims.

There should be more advice and even assistance given to people to install security systems and more robust burglar proof equipment in their homes. What would especially help would be to carry out a u turn on policing cuts and introduce response times measured in a few minutes rather then in possibly hours or even not at all.

Perhaps harsher punishments for crimes would help, such as dismantling whaling stations in South Georgia for 20 years...you know stuff like that.

I thought the Argentinians nicked most of that stuff back in 1982.

I take the point though. Burglary is an ugly crime and in my view, it's not given enough priority both in terms of prevention and what retribution is taken against those committing it.

I used to say that any action taken against people for crimes they have been found guilty of should be corrective rather than punitive.

I still take the view that corrective action is paramount but I do think part of a tariff given out these days should include a bit of time to be served for revenge purposes as well so that the criminals eyes do water when they get sentenced and they consequently are regretful for what they did.
