Normal For Eastwood

And always will be, so long as idiots like this are tolerated:
Councillor Paul Collins added: “Moving forward we need to try and understand why these people feel they need to carry a knife, and then eliminate that. That’s half the problem.”
What do Essex Police Farce say?
“We searched the area but were unable to find the people described. Enquiries are ongoing.”
Sounds about right.

Fine, I Sentence Her To Live Next Door To You For Two Years...

Gerard Kinch, mitigating for Ms Lester, said: "I accept yes this was annoying but I do not see this so bad that it warrants a custodial sentence.
"I don't set out to minimise the behaviour but I would not say it was the worst behaviour of its kind.
"Ms Lester has a problem with alcohol. Fearing the prospect of losing her flat prompted her to consume too much alcohol."
The usual excuses. The usual bluster and empty threat from the magistrate:
Magistrate Timothy Harrison said: "These are persistent and wilful breaches of court orders.
"On 9 January, you were given a order by this court. And yet on the 15 January you were again creating a disturbance.
"The order would have been very fresh and you would have been warned.
"For each of the breaches, this does pass the custody threshold."
Great! So, she's going inside?
Lester was handed a six months prison sentence, suspended for 12 months.
*sighs*
Mr Harrison added: "Let me be clear. If you create a disturbance and are brought back to court, the prison sentence will be activated and you will go inside."
Well, what's the likelihood of th..

Ah.
Lester, wearing a black and white printed top and a mid-length mini skirt, yelled "But I am not a violent person!" as she received her sentence.
Does that not count as 'a disturbance'? Apparently not.

But why should Timothy worry, since he probably isn't her neighbour?

Those Wheels Of Justice Have Ground...To A Halt

Natalie Lorimer assaulted the woman, who The Argus has chosen not to name, in Brighton. The attack inflicted actual bodily harm.
At Brighton Magistrates’ Court Lorimer was found guilty in her absence of the attack.
Magistrate Chris Bell was told the attack happened in March 2017.
 Two years...?
He imposed an 18-week suspended sentence on Lorimer, of South Coast Road, Peacehaven.
Well, what's the point of that, when she's not even present in court?

These 'Freak Accidents' Seem To Happen A Lot...

...and always to the same type of person. How queer!
Mrs Roy - who owns ELEVEN dogs - revealed that Mika has since been put down.
She said: "What needed to be done has been done and I can't do anything more.
"No amount of apology is going to bring that dog back.
"It's just a freak accident and there's nothing anyone can do about it, or will do about it, because it's nature."
For someone who claims to revere nature, she hasn't half spent a lot of money on not looking as nature intended...
Eleven dogs and a fortune on tattoos - she must have a very well-paying job, eh?

What are the people charged with protecting the public against morons like these doing?
Hampshire Constabulary confirmed a ‘number of enquiries’ were made at the time of the attack involving Dior on August 3.
A Portsmouth City Council spokeswoman added: "There was a joint visit to [Ms Roy's] property by the police, kennels staff and RSPCA where all the dogs were assessed and checked for microchips and work to resolve the situation is ongoing."
Ah. I think that's code for 'sod all'.

But You've Never Actually Worked....

Sonny Green announced he would stand as the Labour candidate for Southend Council’s Prittlewell ward in May and hopes his working-class background can make politics more accessible.
So he has a working class job? Is he a dustman, coal miner, builder..?
It comes as critics have hit out at offensive tweets the rapper posted on social media.
Oh.
Speaking with the Echo Sonny, who has since apologised, said his background is what will make him the ideal candidate.
He said: “I’ve always been politically inclined, even in my music. I am passionate about injustice and when things go wrong, it’s important to find out why.
“I joined Labour because their policies about investing in the NHS and social housing are inline with what’s important to me.”
Not to mention the dole, for when rapping no longer brings in the cash (if it ever did).

I Thought It Was An Offence To Lie To The Court..?

Oh, I forgot. It's OK when it's on your job description.
Brophy's defence lawyer, Michael Balmer, described the attack an 'unforeseeable offence.'
He told the court: "Genuine remorse has been evidenced by this defendant.
“Mr Brophy is a man of good character and he is in employment as an engineer and is studying to progress further in his career.
“He comes across as a genuine, hard working and likeable man who has found himself in a very difficult position.”
Which is why he immediately had the dog put to sleep, and compensated the injured woman in full?

Oh. Right.
The dog, which Brophy claimed had 'escaped' through a garden fence following the attack, has never been found.
*rolls eyes*
Greater Manchester Police said they did not have the powers under the Dangerous Dogs Act to force entry without a court order.
And they didn't think to get one?
Brophy was slapped with a community order and 120 hours of unpaid work, after admitting being the owner of a dog dangerously out of control.
He was also ordered to pay £2,000 compensation to Miss Cringle at a rate of £100 a month.
FFS! Yes, she was an idiot to put her hand in the letterbox. But the actions of the owner immediately afterwards show he's not a fit person to own a dog.

Isn't This The Wrong Way Round?

A dealer who targeted communities (Ed: no, just junkies...) in Southend will be deported after serving jail time for selling Class A drugs.
Aurel Elmazi tried to convince police officers he was a victim of modern slavery and was being exploited when he was caught with 58 wraps of drugs.
Heh! An excuse so daft even Judge Samantha Leigh wouldn't buy it...
The courts ordered the drugs to be destroyed and that Elmazi be deported to Albania once he serves his sentence.
Wouldn't it have been better to destroy Elmazi, and send the drugs to Albania?

Let's Make Them Live With Their Decisions, Not The Public....

Danny Lee cut Yasiira Senyonjo in the neck, causing blood to gush over his clothes in East Street, Brighton. Lee was on the run after failing to comply with the terms of his release from prison. He was previously convicted of knifing a man on the bus and threatening his own mother with a blade. The 31-year-old had been deemed safe to return into the public, so long as he took his medication.
But he did not...
Gosh! How unprecedented!
At Brighton Crown Court, Lee was sent back to prison for four more years.
Or half that, if he can persuade another bored State employee that he's all better now.
Lee was wanted on recall to prison at the time of the attack, having previously been sentenced to six years for inflicting grievous bodily harm in 2013.
He was put under stricter controls because of his “dangerousness” to the public.
Those 'stricter controls' did a bang up job, didn't they?
Jeffrey Lamb, defending, said Lee is described as a pleasant man, as long as he is taking his medication. He wants to move to Dublin in Ireland to resume a relationship, so Mr Lamb asked the judge not to make the sentence too long.
Because Border Control will make sure he doesn't come back, right?


Well said. It's a joke.

It's OK, I'm Sure Muggers Can't Read...


Oh. Wait...
C2C has decided to increase the number of guards at Southend Central but Southend East and Thorpe Bay stations will be among those who will lose permanent cover and be served by a mobile unit instead.
C2C will still have the same number of guards but with a greater presence at the biggest station.
/facepalm
