Some wording that caught my attention

I didn’t post this because it’s a crime story. Although it is. 
Something in the opening line of the hard copy caught my eye and I immediately thought, I havta post this story.

The hard copy read as follows.

A TEENAGE burglar who made a victim do a striptease during a six week crime spree may face jail.

MAY FACE JAIL?  May? What with the word, may?
I suppose it was simply the way the fellow wrote the article and the verminous creep will do some time. Not enough to violate his rights of course.

If he can convert to islam before the trail, he could get off altogether.

Okay so now read this guy’s rap sheet.

May? go to jail?

Stephen Smith, 18, “left a trail of misery behind him” as he targeted properties in Mayfair and other areas of London in a six-week crime spree.

During a burglary at an East End flat in June he sexually assaulted the female occupant after threatening her with a pair of scissors. He then stole her bank card, made her hand over her pin number and later withdrew £980.

Southwark crown court heard that Smith climbed into the 21-year-old student’s home via an open window before ransacking the property and walking into her bedroom.

Prosecutor Peter Zinner said: “He told her that if she did not stay still he would kill her family — and bizarrely told her his name was Paul Smith.

“He then demanded that she get out of bed. He took hold of the scissors and ordered her to strip and then told her she must dance for him.”

Smith took off his trousers and underwear and forced her on to her bed.

Mr Zinner said: “The Crown’s case is that the defendant is a financially motivated, skilful and prolific burglar who, between April and June of this year, left a trail of misery behind him.

“He then escalated what was already very serious offending to a new level by a prolonged and terrifying sexual assault on a female burglary victim alone in her dwelling.

“It was for financial gain to live a glamorous lifestyle well beyond what he was able to afford. The sexual assault was gratuitous, probably unplanned, but nevertheless devastating for the victim concerned.”

Smith’s offending began on April 29, when he stole a phone and house keys from Dave Speller, along with keys to a Vauxhall Astra which he drove off in.

The court heard that the property was snatched when Mr Speller fell asleep at the teenager’s east London home after a night out in Romford.

On May 12 Smith broke into a flat in Leytonstone and stole a laptop and a hat. Twelve days later he burgled neighbouring flats in Mayfair, snatching property worth about £28,000, including phones, computers, cash, a camera and a watch.

He struck again the following night at another Mayfair flat, where he took a mobile phone.

Mr Zinner said the female owner woke to find him “asleep at the foot of her bed, covered in vomit and smelling of intoxicating liquor”.

Smith fled and the owner found her collection of designer handbags lined up by the sofa “ready to be taken”.

He tried to break into the flat for a second time less than a fortnight later before trying to get into another apartment in the same building.

Smith also targeted further homes in Mayfair as well others in Bayswater, Whitechapel and Stepney Green — stealing computers and other electrical equipment as well as keys to a Honda, Audi and BMW cars.

All three vehicles were stolen then dumped by him.

Mr Zinner said more than £40,000 of stolen property was still missing.  ($64,487)

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.
