My bold.. if this prat Kidd had bothered to really study these people, he would note that the chiefs of Roma clans/tribes are self policing and don't use the legal establishment to prosecute wrong doers within the tribe but deal with it themselves, often in a much more "robust" way which ensures no re-offending aa shown on the program about them.
Plus any non Roma are "encouraged" to move away!
Under the traveller model, the 3 who killed PC Harper have ticked all the boxes and are now 'good men'.
They gave nothing away, gave nothing up, they stuck together, they didn't cry or show contrition, they acted like 'men'.
While the widow was crying the night of the judges pronouncement, rough men on campsites will have sat around fires drinking stolen beer and eating stolen steaks praising 'the lads' for doing the 'right' thing.
Alas, as the pronouncements from Senior plod in the aftermath show, the uniformed wing of Social Services simply doesn't understand the relentlessly violent and ingrained feral nature of the people they are dealing with.
