Pengilly, wearing a polo shirt and tracksuit bottoms, was flustered in court, pointing to the sky and flailing his arms while in the dock.
He shouted “I’ve got ADHD and anxiety and a personality disorder” and consistently spoke over District Judge Tessa Szagun.
The rough sleeper was listening to music with his headphones in as the judge spoke to him.Isn't that contempt of court? Doesn't that matter any more?
Pengilly’s frustration worsened in court as he claimed to have lost his wallet, telling the judge he was “p***** off”.
He then stood with his arms over the dock and burst into tears, shouting and refusing help from probation officers.
He said: “Nobody f****** helps.
“What’s going to change if you send me to prison?
“I would come out and do the same thing because I have not been helped.
“Don’t keep kicking me while I’m down.”You can afford two large dogs, and drugs. We aren't 'kicking you', we are enabling you!
The welfare state that the shopkeeper's taxes pay for is helping you make his life a misery, with the collusion of toothless judges.
Pengilly begged the judge not to send him to prison while in a flood of tears.
When Judge Szagun ordered the destruction of Pengilly’s cannabis, he replied: “Give it here, I’ll smoke it.”Good grief"

Oh, you're kidding me!
She said Pengilly’s time spent in court was enough to be considered one day’s detention.The State is failing us.
