    When are we as a society going to string people like this up from the nearest tree rather than leave it to the courts to say, “what a naughty pair of lads you are.? He’s 20 hours of community service for your naughtiness your little scamps..”

    Who’s with me.. Who’s bloody well with me.??

        Hmmm, it’s clear to me Steve, that you have no idea the effect being mugged has on people. It not just robs you of your money or your processions, it robs you of your dignity, your self confidence and your faith in humanity.

        I hope these scamps don’t rob you so you never have to feel the way this chap is feeling at the moment.!

        My point is that the courts do not punish these crimes and it’s about time we as a society stood together to say, we will punish these crimes so NO MORE.!!

        For your information Steve, in the UK, adultery as a criminal offence was removed from the statue book many years ago.

        What YOU do in YOUR spare time is your business my friend but how you can possibly compare a criminal offence with a moral offence is a little strange to my way of thinking.!

          But suggesting capital punishment (and it appears via lynch mob) is pefectly ok? Oh you are being ironic? Well so was I – However I very much suspect state sanctioned violence would not solve the issue. Much more impressed that the council is trying restorative justice.
