Put The Owners Down Too…

When explaining to Jackson that she will be disqualified from keeping dogs, Luc Diorio, chair of the bench, said: “We do not think you are a fit person to have a dog at this point in time.”
Or ever will be:
Magistrates also heard that Jackson relied on her pets to help with her mental health as she suffers from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Meanwhile, Mr Glazebrook said that Keepe, of no fixed abode, suffers from anxiety and depression. Both appeared in court yesterday charged with being the owner or in charge of a dog dangerously out of control causing injury.
Jackson was ordered to pay £200 and Keepe £100 in compensation to Mrs Tuck. Keepe was also fined an additional £200.
£300 (should she ever see the money, which is doubtful) won’t even buy one pedigree Chihuahua puppy for the old lady, let alone two.

The law is an ass, and once again, two wastes of skin are pictured laughing outside court because they know that, no matter what, it’s the taxpayer that foots the bill.

For your files, a new low:

I'm guessing the various mental "illnesses" they list will ensure they get enhanced benefits, with less compulsion to get a job. That these "illnesses" also count as mitigation is a useful bonus.

The Great British Justice System...isn't. Not any more.

"..a new low"

:/ Just when I think we've scraped the bottom on the barrel...

"That these "illnesses" also count as mitigation is a useful bonus."

It's like BOGOF!
