I completely agree except that gypsies failure to follow the law of the land was probably one of the reasons . I just thought the thread was going far right I had to try bring some balance
So its alright for threads to go far left, but not far right... what a clown !

because they'll all deny it was they who broke the lock and blame the others, then all they've done is trespass which is a civil matter. If they all blame each other there is no jury in the land that could, without reasonable doubt, say who actually broke the lock.
They know it and they and they know hoe to work the laws to their advantage. Plod knows it too and knows that any investigations wouldn't result in a conviction.
Have you seen wanted man Patrick Ward, 32?

He is being sought by police after being convicted in his absence of conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to commit criminal damage after a trial Preston Crown Court last week.

The offences relate to Patrick’s involvement in over £313k of damage caused and stolen items at the historic Thwaites Brewery site in Blackburn over the spring bank holiday weekend, when a group of travellers set up camp on the grounds.

Despite requests to move, they remained on the site.

On Sunday 27 May, after staff had been to collect items of value, Patrick, along with two other men and a 17 year old boy, as well as other accomplices not yet convicted, looted office buildings stealing televisions, computer equipment, high value alcohol and electrical copper wiring from throughout the entire site. The damage not only cost the company hundreds of thousands of pounds, it also meant they had to relocate to some new premises sooner than planned.

The group were moved on by police escort on Bank Holiday Monday (28 May). [h=4]DS Dave Bowler from Blackburn Police said: “Ward knew he was due to stand trial but did not turn up to court. He is due to be sentenced in January.[/h]
“If you have seen him or know where he is, please make contact with us. My advice to Patrick if he sees this appeal is to attend a police station before he makes matters worse for himself.”

Patrick Ward is described as white, around 6ft 3ins tall, of large build with short wavy brown hair and green eyes. He speaks with an Irish accent and has a tribal tattoo on his left arm and the name ‘Carol’, along with a shamrock, tattooed on his right arm.

Ward is a member of the travelling community and has connections across the country as well as the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, where he currently may be.

No I wouldn't hang him............ But I wouldn't turn my back on him either because he'd bite me on the arse... You'll end up with a big hole in your trousers and a scar for life....

You're the one that objected strenuously to the phrase " do gooders " not me.....I just wrote it.... ;)
