They’re Just Not Even Trying Any More…

A teenage mugger who consistently provided clues to his identity has been jailed for two years and eight months.
What sort of clues?

Well…
Orien Stevens was not only remembered because of his distinctive "mum" tattoo, but he stole a phone from somebody with whom he socialised and then used it to post a message on Facebook, Bristol Crown Court heard.
And that wasn’t even the worst of it! Behold this example:
He even allowed someone to send a witness a threatening note attached to a letter he sent from HMP Bristol.
/facepalm

Nevertheless, his defence didn’t let this hold her back:
Susan Cavender, defending, said her client had taken maths and English exams in custody, played sport and was "very painfully aware of the need to turn over a new leaf".

Ms Cavender said her client was enthusiastic to carry out any form of probation and had a very strong work ethic.
Oh, really? Doesn’t sound like he gave it his all as a mugger, does it?

Interviewing some of these little creeps, I've been a bit surprised how little they see that their actions are criminal. One set of little tossers who had forced their way into a house making threats told me they had a right to be there because it was a council house and they had as much right to it as the tenants.

Orien Stevens, huh? If that's not a 'go straight to jail' card, I'd like to see what is.

"distinctive "mum" tattoo" I would not like to suggest that his mother was indiscriminate in choosing who had unprotected access to her insides, but you'd think he'd do something for his father, too.

Jesus! I went to a place called 'school' for that.

Bristol is really proving to be a goldmine of cretinous Crims, isn't it? All to the good, we residents can spot the morons coming a mile off.

Because of all the council tax he'd paid, I bet?

"...but you'd think he'd do something for his father, too."

Well, the human body only has so much skin...

"Bristol is really proving to be a goldmine of cretinous Crims, isn't it?"

I think it's now all large cities. Hull is currently out in front, but only just.

Wow. What an idiot. I guess he has probably learned a lesson at least, well, I would hope anyway!
