Meanwhile, criminal justice (?) in the UK means sending thugs on taxpayer boat trips and holidays.

Yeah ... folks can see how well the softly,softly approach works on criminal punks. 

There isn’t much to add here as the article says enough about “rehabilitation.”

These kind of thugs should be deported to Guatemala, where apparently those folks understand how justice is suppose to work.


‘Canal Boy’ sent on three-month boat trip to help rehabilitate him is locked up for five years for burglaries

A infamous robber dubbed ‘Canal Boy’ when he was just 13 years old after he was taken on a three-month narrowboat holiday to stop him committing crimes, has fallen foul of the law again.

The 1997 cruise caused a national furore, but clearly failed to rehabilitate Clinton Bowen - for he is now starting a five-year jail term after targeting elderly people for a series of burglaries.

Bowen, 28, was on parole from an earlier jail term when he committed 22 burglaries between March and July this year to fuel his drug addiction, Gloucester crown court was told.

He stole family heirlooms and left elderly victims frightened and anxious after a string of raids on homes, the court heard.

In the late Nineties Bowen was one of a number of young offenders who appeared to be rewarded for their crimes by being taken on holiday at public expense or given excessive pocket money in a bid to steer them away from crime.

‘Safari Boy’ Mark Hook, who was taken to Africa and Egypt for 88 days, and ‘Pocket Money Boy’ Casey Bowen, who was given £60 a week by social services, have both also been jailed this year for their latest crimes.

Clinton Bowen spent three months cruising on a canal boat at public expense to try to break his pattern of offending in Cheltenham.

He spent the time with the organisation ‘Care Afloat’ on the canals of Liverpool.

Bowen, admitted three charges of house burglary and asked for 19 others to be taken into consideration.

Derek Ryder prosecuting, told Judge William Hart that on March 2 at 6.30 pm he broke into the home of two 80-year-old men in Cheltenham while they were eating a meal.

‘They had no idea they were being burgled, but a neighbour saw the defendant coming from their house and suspected something was wrong,’ said Mr Ryder.

‘They found a number of items had been taken out of their home into the garden and parts of the house were in disarray.

‘A number of watches were taken, one of which was well over 100 years old, and had belonged to the father of one of the occupants.’

He said the next offence occurred when a woman of 79, who lives alone, returned to her home and found a kitchen window had been smashed.

‘The house had been searched and belongings scattered around,’ he said.  ‘A pocket watch, a long service medal belonging to the lady’s father, a diamond pin and other jewellery were taken.

‘The third offence on the indictment was discovered on July 3 when a 58-year-old woman returned to her home in Tewkesbury to find the house disordered and items worth £2,395 missing. These included bracelets, a ruby ring and two emerald rings.’

In a victim statement, he said the 79-year-old woman told police she did not have the money to repair the damage to her home or to replace the items which had been stolen.

And the 58-year-old woman, who lives alone, said she had been unable to sleep since the burglary and felt jumpy every time she heard a noise.

CORRECTION -

Sorry for the goof up BMEWS.  That smiling idiot you see here is not the younger version as I said originally.
The shit is the brother of the guy above.  Runs in the family I guess.  He was given thousands of dollars and a foreign trip in the hope he would pay for the things he was stealing.  Apparently didn’t work as he was at it immediately upon his return here and has been in and out of jail (like his brother) ever since.

That’s how crime is dealt with here in the people’s socialist hand wringing paradise.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
