Dumb & Dumber

JamesMilsomIs this Britain’s dumbest criminal?

You just can’t get the message across to some people. James Milsom, 21, idiot of the parish of Mangotsfield in Gloucestershire must win this week’s top prize.

He won a special award back in February when he because the 100th person to be caught breaking into a police decoy car in Bristol.

Decoy cars are vehicles owned or rented by the police which are completely unmarked, the only difference between these cars & all the cars which members of the public leave unattended with valuables such as radios, laptops & sat-navs, is that the decoy cars have recording equipment & cameras which capture evidence of the people who break into them. They are left in crime hotspots in the hope of capturing thieves who prey on such targets, people like that prat in the photo.

Not content with breaking into a decoy vehicle once, Milsom has just been sentenced to 14 weeks imprisonment for his third similar offence in 4 months. he either breaks into an awful lot of cars or has a homing beacon which attracts him to police decoys. To break into a police car once might seem like misfortune, to break into one three times is just really, really stoopid.

    “he either breaks into an awful lot of cars ” Hundreds statistically.

    Thank you for not pixilating the image of the guilty as is usually the case.

    I wonder if the police explain to the car rental company that they expect the windows to be smashed or the door wrenched open…

    At least this type of criminal-baiting fits with government policy of ‘no discretion required’, no need for any brain-work on the part of the arresting officer (other than remembering which forms to fill in and the whereabouts of the nearest biro wholesaler).

    Which is my way of turning the topic to the new Chief of Nottinghamshire Police, Julia Hodson, who has been explaining that her officers will need to be re-skilled in proper use of ‘common-sense’ after all these years of top-down meddling by our friends Tory Blur and Gordon Bennett (sorry, Brown).

    If police have no power to use discretion, and nor do the judges passing sentence, and these rights have been systematically taken away by the government – who do you suppose wants to have full control over which crimes are punished and which are not?

    And who suggested that the government should be able to hire and fire Chief Constables. That`s right, the government.

    And why would they want all this power in their hands? The same reason Robert Mugabe put the same system in place for Zimbabwe.

    I don`t see Mugabe offering his people a free vote over an important issue either.

    Oh but I`m exaggerating of course, that could never happen here.
