Young burglar reffered to as "courageous" by judge. EH?
No. , you don´t need new glasses.
Slow down.... Don´t go hurrying to your optician, there is nothing wrong with your eyesight.
More likely there is something wrong with the Great British justice system.!
I thought I must be wrong when I saw a picture of a young man (I´m being polite. Thug, lout, would be better adjectives.)
Staring at me from my t.v. screen the voice over to this picture of said thug, was informing us that the judge sitting in court today called this person ´courageous´for breaking into people´s homes and stealing from them. ¨It must have taken a lot of courage, I certainly would not be able to do it.´´ said the judge.
Sheeesh! You couldn't make it up!
The screen then altered to the back view of a married couple in their 70s, because they were too afraid to face the cameras.
Our friendly neighbourhood lout had courageously broken into their house while they were asleep.. No doubt the youngster must have had to take many deep breaths to pluck up the courage to do this. After all , what if the elderly man had woken up? He might have hit the lad with his pillow.! The wife might have screamed so loudly , that our thug may have suffered damage to his hearing. .
What was this judge thinking of. ? This boy /lout/idiot. no sorry , it´s the judge who is obviously the idiot, was a repeat offender.
It seems stealing from others is much more fun than going to work.
Never mind, he didn't really get away with it, he was given 200 hours of unpaid work to do.
I do hope he doesn't break a nail.,................
Thankfully this episode has caused outrage. The Prime Minister, Mr David Cameron was very quick to speak out, mentioning how he has been burgled twice and there is a feeling of violation when this happens.
Too right there is.! Especially for the elderly.
The world´s gone mad.!
