So I don't generally like Politicians a great deal but I'll give credit where and when it is due.
The latest news this week sees Boris Johnson chase off a bunch of hooded "oiks" (his words) who had surrounded a lady and one of whom had a 1 metre steel bar in hand.
The Mayor of London was cycling down the street when he heard a lady shout to him for help, without any hesitation he rode over, jumped off his bike and shortly there-after was chasing the hooded youths down the street.
He then returned to the stunned lady and walked her home!!! WTF? It's brilliant isn't it? :-)
Could you imagine the Mayor of New York doing that?
I can see how he became Mayor - top notch Boris.
Now if only a few other citizens of this great world we live in would take heed and help people when they need it then it would be a far, far nicer world we live in.
Named and Shamed... about time too!
Avon & Somerset have been naming the people that they've shovelled through the Criminal Justice System. Basically they have been publicising the details of what for and who on their website.
I'm sure that the Human Rights mob will be jumping up and down and protesting but screw them..
I feel that this is a positive step forward in Victim Focus in the Criminal Justice System.
On top of that I personally think it's great, after all you won't let someone in to your house or business or employ them if you KNOW that they've been done for Burglary or Theft by Employee or Shoplifting.. It now allows the public to be aware and to take adequate protective measures.
Now to get everyone else doing it - because the long and short of it.. you WON'T commit crime if you suddenly find EVERY DOOR SLAMMED IN YOUR FACE because you are recognisable!
