Oxford graffiti gang rounded up

Rumour has it that Oxford police have rounded up the gang responsible for the graffiti which defaces North Oxford (see Rubbish and Graffiti by the Oxford Canal and Aristotle Lane Graffiti). It seems that one was caught in flagrante.

Stout work, constable. Next step, no doubt, will be the social worker’s report explaining why it is society’s fault. Society played him a terrible trick and, sociologically, he’s sick. Desperate need for self-expression,  blah, no opportunities, blah, no outlet for his creative powers, blah.

Then, if the CPS doesn’t screw it up before it get to court, the magistrates will give him a ticking off and some light community service. Aaaarrrggghh!

Why not make the perpetrators clean it all up? No courts, no prison, no record, no social workers. Just clean every piece of graffiti within a mile of Aristotle Lane.
