Mugging… ok.. Robbery with violence is appearing to be spiking as is the very cowardly odds of around 4 against 1…
There are undoubtedly more reports just like this one. Petty crimes are more likely to include violence, and moving in packs like dogs menacing robbing, and intent of violence, so many ramifications. Physical and emotional injury… Enough is Enough.. Magistrates prone to soft sentencing… Please wake up.. You are assisting in the escalation of these crimes. Wrist slapping ought to be the domain of mummy’s and dad’s teaching unwitting ” toddlers” not to dig stuff into an electric socket.
When the judiciary see part of their role as protection of our basic rights….
We will have both our Police Force less undermined and ordinary civilians rights, Restored.
