WELL done Cllr Brown - I hold my hands up to you for standing up to these youths, who think they can take the law into their own hands and go around smashing up people's property.
As for the police arresting Cllr Brown, shame on you, you should have praised him up.
The arrest should have been brought on the young lad - he wants to grow up and do something with his life.
I do hope his parents gave him a good box around the ears as well.

I'M so glad that I left the country in 2000. All I ever hear about from friends and family and in the news is how law and order has broken down in the favour of criminals and to the detriment of the victims.
When I first moved to Texas, I was highly (and pleasantly) surprised to find teenagers calling me "Sir".
I also like the fact that we don't need a burglar alarm, locking wheel nuts or a removable car stereo.
AS a resident of Littleport I have every sympathy for Cllr Brown and his recent court ordeal. Mr Brown is highly respected in this town as I'm sure is apparent from the support he has received from well-wishers.
I would like to take issue with him on his assertion that the police in Littleport are a joke.
We are currently experiencing a serious ongoing anti-social behaviour problem in Littleport.
We have found the Neighbourhood support team, headed by Sgt Alan Saville at Ely, to be extremely helpful and sympathetic.
They have offered a huge amount of practical support to us over the past few months.
One thing that has become apparent is that neighbourhood problems can only be resolved when residents work in partnership with their local officers.
Too many people in Littleport like to complain about crime and anti-social behaviour, but are unwilling to involve themselves in the solutions.
We have found that local people can have a real impact on local problems if they really want to.
My advice to anyone facing these kinds of situations is to get up out of your armchairs and go and talk to neighbours, report incidents and take a hand in helping to solve problems rather than just moaning about them.
