AN ORPINGTON man with 29 previous convictions has been jailed for breaking into a car in Beckenham and stealing a radio.

Jamie Robery, aged 33, of Saltwood Close, was sentenced to 24 weeks after pleading guilty at Bromley Magistrates’ Court to theft.

He was last jailed on January 17 for nine months for burglary and theft, but was released after a month and a half.

Officers spotted Robery acting suspiciously in Station Road, Shortlands, in the early hours of April 12.

He was breathing heavily, as though he had been running, so officers retraced his route, finding a car in Martins Road with a smashed window and missing radio.

A short distance away they found the missing car stereo and a screwdriver hidden under another car.

Robery was arrested at the scene.

His 29 previous convictions come from 76 offences, 42 of which were theft offences.

WTF? I thought that even with angelic behaviour they served at least half their time.

Ken Clarke would be pleased though.

29 previous convictions and he only gets 24 weeks, having only served 6 weeks of a previous 9 month sentence?? WTF is wrong with the legal system. This chav is never going to change his ways, why not lock him up and throw away the key.

Has the defendant had a "difficult" upbringing? (single parent family) Is the defendant from an economically deprived section of society? (benefits).

The best thing would be a bullet to the head. It would put him out of his misery and the human herd will get stronger by deleting the scum that feed off everybody's hard work.

Of course, that's a given.

Why waste a good bullet when there's plenty of good rope available.

When will someone in government get off of their lazy fat arses and do something about these ridiculous sentences. When will they learn that rehabilitation doesn't work. What these scumbags need is punishment, and plenty of it. Maybe then, just maybe, they might think twice next time.

So when he's released in a few weeks (!) just have the police follow him as he'll probably go thieving within minutes of getting out

Yeah, because everybody who has been brought up in a low-income, single-parent family automatically goes around breaking the law! Get your facts straight and stop assuming, and maybe get it into your head that the 'difficult' life you describe is actually difficult. (Oh, wow! I have good grammar skills, look at me go!)

The scum of society are the ones who earn a lot of money by doing nothing. (Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more, say no more!)

I think you were missing a little sarcasm there! Normally on here, you'll get some scummy mate or relative coming on blaming the criminal's upbringing. That's what he's getting at.

When you refer to the people that earn lots and do nothing, I assume you mean the people that are the opposite of those that get free houses, lots of benefits for doing nothing!

Don't worry about explaining it to this type of person. They walk around with a chip on their shoulder for the rest of their life.

There's no helping them. But it makes me laugh. HA HA HA.

Maybe go see a doctor if your seeing a dead parrot or try google.

Anyhoo, thanks for your opinion. If you could just see your way clear to mailing it to someone who gives a sh1t, that'd be peachy. Okay?
