I love the justice system in this country, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, knowing my family and I are safe in our own home. :(

You can only get true justice outside of the law unfortunately. You then become a criminal and so it goes on.

One of those occassions when our many laws are inadequate.

It used to be the case that you could take someone's car and the only offence was stealing the fuel - so if you topped up the tank there was absolutley nothing the police or courts could do.

The same is true in this case, if you eneter a property without causing damage (so Breaking & Entering doesn't come into play) and don't steal anything the only offence is trespass. Before anyone mentions the offence of Burglary - this is can only take place at night. (the felony of breaking into and entering the house of another at night with intent to steal)
