It is so wrong :( Family business just burned down.
I agree, I like to know what is happening and glad that he is on the mend.And that Sony is sending him a new psp and games. Someone tried to get to his phone to but not sure if they got it. When he fell from his bike because the people where trying to steal it (And did) he got the broken jaw.Such a shame that people get caught up in to this mess when they haven't even done anything wrong or harmed anyone.

You keep safe to Brandy and I hope it is over with.

I hope they are crying like baby's
The law always seems to go heavy on people who have not got a lot, but goes easy on the real crooks of this world. Take the banking wizz-kids who have fianacially ruined businesses, caused so many home foreclosures, lost countless jobs, ruined peoples' lives, brought the the world to it's economic knees...and what has happened to these "gamblers"????......the answer is sweet FA!!! ...they are still rolling in money, still getting fat bonuses, still living in mansions in suburbia, still vacationing in their properties "in the sun" that they own.

They say that tha law is an ass...it most certainly is...but it always seems to act on the side of those who "have" and put someone in jail for 8 months (that causes me and you, the tax payer thousands of pounds) for stealing a mere 75 worth of goods.

Something is indeed not right in our society...and I'm not talking about the London rioters. Perhaps, their actions are a reaction to many things that are unequal in society.???

I'd like to clarify about what I meant about the above point. If someone loots 75 worth of goods during the recent riots and then gets 8 months jail the tax payer then in ends up having to pay an absolute fortune to keep them incarcerated. How is that just??? Vindictive certainly, but missing the REAL culprits.

Meanwhile the bankers / gamblers / property speculators (give those fuckers whatever label you like) are all still "sitting pretty" while the ordinary guy in the street gets fried. People do not riot for no reason...growing up in N. Ireland taught me that.

I'm surprised that those who bend their knee to pay humage to the Business & Financial Markets Professionals, are not up in arms at my assertions.

its quite true what you are saying BD. the whole thing was a mess tbh.

I guess the courts were trying to make examples of people, however no one will remember that in 15-20 years time when the next generation are pissed off...

Nothing will change
