I expect he will say he was just trying to sterilise the letter box as he thought the post man may have CV. And with gullible courts, and over full jails, likely would ‘get away’ with such too.

Needs hanging.

An equally useless member of society, yet authorities are going to now find ‘places’ for all the low life living rough. The point being whilst some are worth saving, many aren’t, as they are the sort who ruin lives and are going to be a drain on society for the rest of their natural.

Harsh but true. Best off saving those who are useful, not useless as we may have to make that choice soon.

Is he related to that stupid bitch in Newport!!?? It just goes to show how unimportant life is to some people, starting fires, rolling cars and then doing a runner, fly tipping !!!! None of these people make a whole one between them and we support all of them. The police make the arrest, get them to court, CPS come along and get them off. Frustrating for the cops as well as for us

This arsonist scum needs locking up and the key thrown away. Instead, he will be sentenced then only serve half of the term the judge laid down. Where is the justice in the UK.
