I notice that the only person sent to jail was a man who stole a fairy toad stool from the early learning centre. None of the people found guilty of assaults, drug possession, drink driving or burglary were given prison sentences. Am I missing something?

Is the object of this column and those like it week after week an endeavour to convince the public that the Police are doing something to justify their wedge of the Council Tax we all pay? If it is then I would like a rebate of substantial proportions please!

I notice the soldier received a far stiffer financial penalty than anyone else mentioned.

That is probably because the magistrates knew the Army would ensure he coughed up - unlike most of the others, who will - as usual - get away with it.

One Law for one...

what you probably won't know is that the Army lad will get a fine and restrictions from the Army for bringing the military into disrepute, now there's justice for you. Should have been suspended with no fines and let it be handled in house. A lot of the charges seem to cost the taxpayer more than miscreant pays, well done british justice.
