It sickens me how I work my arse off and earn peanuts for my efforts and yet the "needy" use something totally un related to start behaving like they live in some hard up ghetto where the authorites have disrespected them so they go on a rampage. They surely must realise that by trashing their local community and shops etc. the places that potentially would have offered part time jobs for them have now gone up in flames!!

A total of 6 youths, two of whom have been bailed pending sentence in consideration of their age and the peripheral nature of their involvement. Owing to the rules governing youth courts, they will both almost certainly have referral orders, being first time offenders who have pleaded guilty immediately to relatively minor offences. The other four have been remanded in custody or remanded to secure local authority accommodation pending sentence. Custodial sentences have been proposed for those youths, all four of whom were charged with violent disorder and sundry less serious offences.
The other individuals are adults, two of whom have pleaded not guilty and have been remanded in custody pending trial. Of the remainder, one has been sentenced to 4 months custody forthwith (pre-sentence report waived) and the rest, who all pleaded guilty, have been remanded in custody to the Crown Court for sentencing.
One of the adults is a serving member of the Royal Navy.
Other arrests are either in progress or are imminent.
There have been no notices of appeal lodged with the Court.
I understand that colleagues in other Courts are dealing with offences in much the same way.
