Interesting to note that the rancid knuckle-dragging maggots who featured in the two recent, widely-circulated, 'payback' videos, have been promptly 'dealt with'.
Les Andrews, the scouse bonehead who was Hong Kong Phooeyed by an innocent householder who he'd attempted to bully, will rue the day he messed with the justice system, so he will.
Andrews, 23, was arrested and hit with a curfew for yobbery.
Likewise Dean Gardner and Jason Fender, the two gutter-dwellers who enjoyed spending their evenings terrorising Swansea pubgoers, until they picked on the wrong guys. They have been punished good and proper, and no mistake.
Gardner and Fender were ordered to carry out a four-month community order, during which they will be electronically tagged, and to pay prosecution costs of £85 each.
Now, perhaps I'm misguided here, but I was always of the opinion that one of the primary purposes of prison was to separate dangerous menaces from decent society. These three were filmed committing acts of violence on peaceful citizens which, had they not encountered people who were more than able to defend themselves, could have resulted in infinitely more serious situations.
They are useless, dangerously spiteful fucktards who have no right to leniency, yet have respectively gotten away with an early night, an ankle bracelet, a few hours work and a fine paid for by a week's 'social'.
And these are just two high-profile cases that we know about - the same 'harsh' sentences are being handed down to nasty, violent, anti-social fucks the length and breadth of the country, day after day.
So, who is going to prison, then? Here are two recent examples.
A Carlisle man has been jailed for not paying council tax.
Bryan Messenger, 56, of Orchard Street, off Botchergate, has been sentenced to 88 days in prison after he failed to pay more than £3,500.
Woman jailed for falsely claiming widow's pension
A 60-YEAR-OLD woman was jailed by Scarborough magistrates after falsely claiming nearly £18,000 in benefits.
Katrina Gibbon, of Green- lands Road, Pickering, failed to tell the Department for Work and Pensions that she had remarried and continued to claim a widow's pension from March 2000 until January 2008.
Well that's OK, then. We can all sleep soundly in our beds knowing that such animals are safely locked away.
