This is a very important point for those who call for a few mugs to be grassed "for breaking the law".
It is also an example of why I do not accept the rule of law.
Laws made by corrupt, poorly educated and intellectually challenged politicians that I didn't vote for.
I decide my actions based on my own moral judgement.
These poor fools let their excitement get the better of them, they behaved stupidly. But no real harm was done, and the threatened lifetime ban is entirely disproportionate.
I conclude that grassing them up would be entirely immoral.
And then I read how some would grass just for fun, "cos the bloke's a tool", and how the East End "is the cesspit of humanity".
Personally I blame the parents. And Thatcher (I know exactly what Oldun is getting at, unfortunately those who were affected don't, but that was part of the plan, wasn't it?).
