Cable TV doesn't mean the wire between the remote control and the TV anymore.

Re: justice system wrong or right??

The justice system is up the spout, reading the evening paper last night and two lads by us got caught fishing without a rod license, both got 115 fines. Nothing violent there but they broke the law so I guess that's that.

On the same page a guy had been claiming benefits for over ten years, he had claimed 60,000. what did he get then...............a 32 month prison sentance.................... suspended for two years.

It was right to jail this man for what he did.the only people allowed to meter out summary justice on the streets are the police

Re: justice system wrong or right??

sharia law?..no thanks!.

with regard to the bloke being jailed for defending his family...of course its against natural law. In the eyes of the law, it all comes down to the use of 'minimum force'..difficult to ascertain in the heat of the moment.
I would have done the same..better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.
Also, how could you live your life with the knowledge that someone came into your home and beat your family...and you did nothing?...

I got fined 30 in 1984 I think, Misc. Off. Poaching. Got caught fishing three quarters of an hour before the season opened.
We'd been there since 9am to ensure we got the spot we wanted and had waited all day and evening until 11pm when we decided we couldn't wait any longer and cast in, then the bailiffs arrived. Caught one bream of about 4 1/2 lb, some bits and got eaten alive by midges for my troubles. Not the best time I've ever had.

Re: justice system wrong or right??

2am Sunday morning and my dogs start doing their nut. I get up and look out the window to see some guy legging it down the street at full pelt. I'm just about to go back to bed when a second guy comes hooning from the same direction rapidly followed by my neighbour yelling at the top of his voice.............and stark bollock naked. He'd been woken by my dogs to find one of these guys going through the contents of his work truck. Now, not sure what summary justice would have been handed out if he'd of caught the guys (reckon they were teenagers looking for easy pickings) but the sight of a six foot stark naked guy running, swinging and swishing his way down the street might have been more than enough to serve as justice for some given the long lasting mental effects it might have had. Fortunately he managed to get back and covered up before the police arrived otherwise he might have been done for indecent exposure.

BBC News - Right to self-defence in homes to be 'much clearer'

It's okay. Ken Clarke says you can get as stabby as you like if someone is robbing you up.

Can see that going all wrong.

Re: justice system wrong or right??

Can't wait

"No, of course I've forgiven you for trying to shag my Mrs at the Christmas party. To show you there's no hard feelings why don't you come round to our house for tea?"
