Today our small community was inundated with Police, supported by a helicopter. The miscreants were caught stealing Yorkshire Stone Flags.The cost to tax payers must be enormous. When they are produced in court my guess (in the new regime) is that they will suffer no more than a slap on the wrist, with limited fines because they (Are on benefit) I was a magistrate for 14.5 years and felt that all sensible & logical powers had been removed in favour of so called national equality. Come on it it time we started treating criminal acts as exactly that. They produce much misery and stress for the victims, we really should do more to stop crime.

I think they just saw it as a step up from pinching cobble stones.
