Yet More Inevitable Results Of ‘No Consequences’

Miss Allan said Lowe had numerous previous convictions for assault, and said: “He came to court on the drunk and disorderly charge last Friday, but he was in a drunken state and, before he was dealt with, he ended up fighting with another man outside the building, and was arrested by the police. “
/facepalm That’s almost as good as these two!
Richard Prew, defending, said his client accepted it had been a ‘thoroughly distasteful’ episode. He said: “He accepts he has an appalling record for violence when in drink, and it is that he needs to address.”
And yet he shows no sign of doing so.
Lowe, 33, of Canterbury Street, Blackburn, pleaded guilty to assaulting Miss Fawcett, 22, and Mr Talbot, 19. He was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months, and made subject to community supervision for 12 months.
And that’s why. Because he’ll never be forced to do so…

I got an antisocial to move once voluntarily. It's amazing how many people are willing to believe, er, a certain kind of rumour.

But more and more people are going to start doing this for themselves, if the authorities prove so useless...
