The Great British Justice System….

Assault an 82 year old pensioner and then set your dog on hers, killing it, because she interrupted your pleasurable afternoon’s hard work drinking whisky in the park and what do you get?
Humphreys, of Ambrook Road, Belvedere, was given a six-month prison sentence suspended for 18 months and banned from owning or caring for dogs for five years.
Just great

Still, at least neutering and muzzling was ordered, albeit for the wrong party:
Humphreys has been ordered to pay £500 compensation to Mrs Flint and will be supervised by probation officers for six months.

Magistrates ruled the dog be neutered and muzzled and on a lead at all times when out.

Humphreys must also pay £100 court costs.
Anyone want to guess who’ll be paying that money..? I don’t think it’s going to be the 25 year old jobless waster, is it?

Oh, and why no charges for this?
Police were called to the scene and PC Colin Bassett found Mrs Flint sitting on a bench cradling Evie’s body.

Humphreys was still at the scene, intoxicated and unsteady on his feet.

When PC Bassett tried to arrest Humphreys he was bitten by Bullseye on his right elbow.
Let’s hope the next person it bites is a magistrate…

But I can't help reading this and wondering why I'm bothering to work, and pay taxes, simply in order to keep this vile creature in whisky and idleness, its even fouler 'pet' in Bonio, and a bunch of pointless wastes of spaces on the bench handing out 'punishment' designed to do little but keep yet another bunch of public sector workers gainfully employed.

Perhaps I'm the one who's out of step?

A truly horrible circle of job creation for some people on the back of other people not bothering to get a job.

Bizarre and annoying at the same time.

Don't think it's you out-of-step!

Give up at least one of those, then. It's the way forward.

And I can't see any chance of it stopping anytime soon.

"Don't think it's you out-of-step!"

I'd hope not. But there's a lot that seem to see this non-work existance as the answer - just check out Winston Smith's latest post.

Truly /headdesk material...

"Give up at least one of those, then."

Can't give up work or taxes. Giving up reading means (I guess) giving up blogging.
