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.???
