Dear Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left.
Signed, Liam Byrne

The highest rated comment beneath this story in the Mail, referring to the lenient non-sentence given to a twenty year old 'joyrider' Sean Rider, who was not jailed for "killing police dog and injuring two officers in wrecking spree" was from 'Police Officer', who wrote :-
All I will say is KARMA......

One day these thugs will be scraped of the highway or found in hospital after some "chav" dispute involving knives. Noone will cry for them, noone will care, everyone will celebrate...

Why do we tolerate this?? Even one such as I who has sworn to uphold the law and protect life at all costs am fed up with apprehending them, gathering the evidence before charging only to see them walk out of court the next morning on "unconditional bail."

Two of my collegues last month recieved broken bones from seperate assaults with both offenders now out on bail. The officers will have permanent life changing injuries that will effect the rest of the service. Both are ex soldiers who have already served their country in the battlefield.

We are sick of the judicial system and of the goverments attitude towards law abiding members of the public.

Perhaps the Mail's decision not to permit comments for the article reporting was rather wise :-
Police chief is held for 'torching car to cover up affair with barrister's wife'
A Thames Valley Police spokesman confirmed that ‘a senior police officer’ had been arrested, suspended from duty and bailed pending further inquiries
He was taken to a Hampshire police station for DNA tests
It's often the words or expressions that contain the fewest letters that raise a smile!

KARMA indeed.
