Surely the male members of the threatened staff should wait until this low life has done his two or three weeks jail, and have a little chat with him? If they were my family, I would.

Let me guess what’s going to happen, mmmm A clever lawyer, paid by us, will plead he has issues with booze and drugs. He says he’s changing his life around. he will get a telling off and a fine he can’t pay because he’s scum.. meanwhile the poor shop workers, working long hours to put food on their table are suffering because of his actions…. How much would a bullet cost? Problem solved.. doogooders kiss my arse
