Intergenerational Warfare Part 3078

Obviously there's no way these kids should be in prison :

Lewis Wiles, aged 80, was confronted by two youths after his son Mick, who runs Wiles Newsagents on Langsett Road, Hillsborough, asked them to leave when they became abusive.

They had been arguing with him when he refused to sell them single cigarettes instead of an entire pack. Lewis, a retired steelworker and electrician, from Hurlfield Road, Gleadless, followed the pair outside and, according to Mick, an argument broke out and he was pushed to the ground. Police were called to the shop at around 12.35pm to reports of Mr Wiles lying injured outside.
He was rushed to the Northern General Hospital for treatment but died from his injuries a few hours later.

They should be looking at nothing less than 10-15 years a piece.

Lets see how it turns out.

How about 6-8 years, out in three...

'inter-generational' or 'inter-class' conflict? Quite simply, the 'underclass' despises anyone who runs a business, and they will do their best to wreck any enterprise, unless it is related to drugs or prozzies. SEnd in the troups!

Obviously an "isolated incident"!

We need some vigellante action in Britain,given that the police are over-involved with "paper work".

What does this "paper work" - which conjures up visions of coppers typing with two fingers on the old manual (not even Selectric) typewriters and pouring fluid into mimeograph machines. And standing at filing cabinets, filing things.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe there's any such thing as "paper work" any more. And how long does it take to key in a report and click Save? Long enough to keep them inside the police station for their whole shift?

They need to be challenged on this "paperwork" lie.

I don't know what rogue thought impelled me to misspell vigilante. Apologies.

You are right. These kids shouldn't be in prison. They should be in their coffins. Sorry. No sympathy with feral youth. They imperil established societies and should be destroyed.
