LOTS of people in the town know Tony Sanders. Several know him as 'Foggy'. Unfortunately, many more know him as the chap who had his door smashed in and a considerable sum of money (for a pensioner) stolen. Luckily, the local police apprehended the culprits and they were brought to court.

Now I am the first to admit that I might not always understand the workings of our magistrate's courts, but wouldn't you think that kicking down a door and running off with someone else's money could be called anti-social behaviour? So would I. No, we obviously don't see things properly. The Crown Prosecution Service attempted to get an ASBO on the elder of the two culprits, but magistrates decided against it. Perhaps the forum could invite the magistrates to explain.
