He should be put behind bars for life - treat him as if he were a murderer because a stolen car can kill an entire family economically. Many people rely on their family vehicle to get to work thanks to poor public transport. This guy needs to be given a proper punishment so he is kept away from us. I'd suggest public flogging but that's unfortunately not in our gift.

A family friend called the Police at the end of the Summer last year because he'd woken up to see a man, woman and young male trying car doors about 5.30am! They saw something in his car They wanted and managed to force their way in. Thankfully this was all on security video outside his property but the Police were not interested and actually said that they don't respond to 'those' anymore. They gave him details of where to send the video so they could look at it. The fact that these people had left their fingerprints all over his car and managed to take his bank card that he'd forgotten to pick up, then tried to get a large amount of cash out of a machine and then went and spent money on his card using Contactless transactions. Still nothing has been done as he was told it was a Victimless crime. He did cancel his card but after spending almost 30 minutes talking to the Police!

I think a suspended sentence is the way forward. Hang ‘em !

Your better of being your own judge and jury, give them what they deserve, the council tax is going to rise again this year, more funding for the police but when your a victim of crime all you receive is a crime number.

Maybe they should start a lottery like the postcode lottery except with crime numbers. Then at least some people get compensated! Actually forget that the authorities might take it seriously
