    A total waste of time prosecuting these evil little bastards, with what the courts will give them. The scum that beat up and rob the vulnerable are even worse. Flogging them is cheap and effective, and they won't do it twice.
    Probably the same calibre of twats who smashed up Ruddo train museum in Chris's old back yard....used to take my eldest there who was train mad at least twice a month... absolute cracking place for young kids to go and adults too.... just wrecked.

    Fuck the birch a swift kick to the bollocks will do.

    Don't know whether things have changed much but an old lad on the isle of wight told me that anyone caught doing this sort of stuff got a good hiding with a boat oar.
    He said they rarely came back for more.

    Think people tend to mind their own business now.

    One time in the t'wood shit used to get sorted out the vigilante way. You just knew as a young en not to fuck about with certain people.

    I remember a handbag getting snatched up town when I'd have been 16 or so, the culprits were caught and kicked fuck out of within a few hours of clocking off time and word getting out.

    When I was a lad, if you did something like this, you knew that the local bobby and a couple of his off-duty mates would sort it out the old-fashioned way.

    And that acted as a deterrent.

    Like Barry says above, it’ll be the same kind of useless wankers who smashed up the Heritage Railway in Rudd; the Police have made arrests, but what will they get?

    A telling off and some useless community service probably, which is absolutely zero use in stopping this sort of anti-social behaviour.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    An old boy from Ripley that I worked had some hastle with a couple of local lads selling dope outside his daughter's school. 4 of them picked one of the lads up one night, hood over his head, slung him in the back of a Tranny van and took him for a drive. They stopped in the middle of nowhere and made a fuss as though they were getting someone else out the back of the van, left it a couple of minutes and let a shotgun off. The lad was sat in his own piss thinking that he was next.

    It sounds a bit far-fetched but knowing the **** I have no doubts that it happened.

    I worked with an elderly lawyer on a project in the 1980s who had been on prosecutions in colonial Africa and who had witnessed the caning of a few petty criminals. He said when the magistrate orders "six cuts" that is exactly what it means, they draw blood six times.

    His argument was it was cheap and effective because there were few repeat offenders. I didn't agree with him at the time, but now I am not so sure.

    I think that must if worked. As I was working in Southampton a few weeks ago and picked up the IOW local radio station, the local news top story was someone having their shed broken into and having a radio and shovel pinched.

    One thing i always admired in Greece was the way they dwealt with this shit in house as well... infact i got the impression that if you couldnt do anything else you were a copper.

    In kos anyone stepped out of line it was a beating, bundled in the boot of a car and took up into the moutains and left to walk back... another threat was "ill kill you then ill fuck you"

    My gaffer was a local who had rank at the local army base but you can tell he earnt it. 30 irish lads came over on a stag do causing trouble and we had pool cues ready as we were vastly outnumbered, one of them situations where you know its gonna kick off, the gaffer made a phone call and all these young lads came out of nowhere and we just stood there open mouthed as they kicked fuck out of em. These irish lads checked out their appartments and fucked off up kos town and apparantly on a boat as they were told in no certain terms the airport for them "was closed."

    Mad

    Mad
    When I went to Kavos, we stayed in a family hotel and there was a bunch of lads giving it the big 'un, shouting and yawping around the pool at 4am. The little old boy who owned it and was at least 70, came over and had a word, 3 of the pricks squared up to him. Me and my pal were on the balconies have a last beer and got up to give him a hand. He dropped one with an uppercut, doubled another up with a kidney punch and booted thr last one down about 30 stone steps.
    I was telling one of his sons about it the next morning and he didn't even bat an eyelid, he just said "nobody should fuck with papa, he was in the home guard and is a very hard man."
    He wasn't fucking wrong!

    Apparently, all the scrotes carry a knife in a manbag these days, cause they're from the hood innit.
    So people don't get involved.
    Some nutter will pull a machete on one of them sooner or later and then there will be uproar. "Little Johnny is a lovely lad, listens to his rap music in his bedroom and doesn't bother anyone. Then this monster maimed him in an unprovoked attack. Our family is heartbroken..".

    I don't want this to sound like a defence of either the perp or the release system, but you've twisted that story beyond the truth.

    But he wasn't sent to that spa while serving his prison term at the tax payers expense

    He had been released from prison and was there at his own cost.

    Maybe terms of his licence should include not being allowed to treat your mam on Mother’s Day. Just to keep the press happy.

    What sort of message does that send to the little scrotes that idolise him?

    Rehabilitation is a positive thing, but that should mean learning useful skills like welding or bookkeeping not living it up at a spa resort.

    Why do people that I work with seem unable to accept simple facts?

    I've just had one of our Paralegals and a Finance manager come to my desk, because they've received a notice of a Supplier taking Legal action over an unpaid invoice.

    "What can we do to fix this?"
    "Perhaps paying the invoice would be a good idea?"
    "Who should be responsible for making that happen?"
    "Well, the Buyer is ultimately responsible for managin their suppliers, so I'd suggest the Buyer should take it on?"
    "So, you're saying you'll take this issue and resolve it?"
    "Erm, no."
    "But you just said the Buyer should manage this?"
    "I did, but I'm not responsible for Freight suppliers"
    "So, who is then?"
    "I don't know, whoever normally signs off freight invoices"
    "How can you possibly not know?"
    "Well, you don't seem to know, so why should I?"

    Good news. It won't compensate the hours they put in but it's nice to see genuine folk are still out there.

    meanwhile, in the office of some small company somewhere, a philosophical conversation is ongoing about the human consequences of alienation at work...

    boss: what's the cashflow looking like?
    bookkeeper: we're going to struggle to pay wages if that freight invoice doesn't get paid
    boss: have you chased it?
    bookkeeper: yes, several times
    boss: what's the hold-up
    bookkeeper: no one wants to take responsibility for identifying the authorised buyer because it's beyond their job spec/paygrade/care
    boss: let's try the bank again to see if we can extend the overdraft because we have another overdue invoice, but they'll probably put me hold for a month while the debate who's reponsibility it it is to start a credit check... if not we'll probably have to let someone go

    Payment of supplier invoices should be totally separate from the buying decision.
    If the person doing the buying is also doing the paying then the door to fraud is wide open.
    So, in your position I would have told the paralegal (wtf is one of those?) and the finance guy to go and do their jobs and get it sorted.

    Payment of invoices should indeed be separate. Most businesses separate Accounts Payable for that very purpose.

    Authorisation of those payments however should always be done by the responsible person who originally placed the order - the buyer, in this case.

    In this case, it sounds like nobody knows who is supposed to authorise these specific payments?
