News Shopper - The Paper Of The People!

While we all know that crime is going down, there are still nasty people out there, who break the law. I feel safer when I hear that criminals have been apprehended and brought to justice. Communicating this message is a fundamental role of the local press.

Although crime rates nationally are reducing, we all still like to hear about a burglar being sent to prison or a violent criminal being given time to sit in a cell and reflect upon his/her behaviour.

So it is that the News Shopper reports on how a Mr James Davis has been fined £350 for not cleaning up after his dog in a children's play area. On top of this, he was hit for £150 court costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

Thank goodness all is well! In future, I won't feel the need to lock my front door or secure my car, certain in the knowledge that all the agencies of the state are poised to swing into action to target those matters, which affect the public the most.

Well done Dartford Magistrates for hammering this vile, socially destructive crime! Well done News Shopper for letting us all know that we can sleep more easily!

I can already hear a new slogan: "clear the grime or face the fine"!
