It is beyond my understanding that this obnoxious boil on the backside of humanity (relax, Bhuddy - I'm not talking about you this time) was 'cautioned' for whacking someone on the head in a supermarket! That is -- by any loose definition -- assault. Cautioned? CAUTIONED? To a point I can agree with ol' Bhuddy there and I too hope the assaultee recovers.

To the local gendarme that was so kindly as to gently reprimand the youngster, I need to ask: " What the HELL were you thinking?" He was riding high on coke AND was in possession of a ... (I had to check because I find it hard to believe) ... a HALF A GRAM of the stuff. That's enough to get you going for the whole evening (with a mild habit) or (for me) induce full-blown cardiac arrest! And he was CAUTIONED?

Actually /@|_|@\, without perhaps even realising it I think you have hit the nail fairly and squarely right on the head. The problem is that Police Officers today are not expected to think as we would wish them to.

They must blindly obey a myriad of restrictive regulations and requirements that seem to the rest of us to put the interests of the miscreant at the top of the list well above those of the victim. They disregard them at peril of losing their careers!

In Adam Smith’s book entitled ‘Braintree & Bocking at Work’ there is a lovely old photograph of Braintree’s ‘Proper Coppers’ taken in 1890. There are 35 of them shown proudly posing for the shot.

However what is really appealing is the accompanying caption which says ‘
“……..In the case of a youth committing a petty crime they would often mete out punishment there and then in the hope of preventing another offence…..…”

If only………..
