    Default Judge tells serial burglar he has a huge amount of courage

    http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/new...nt_of_courage/

    BURGLARS must have a “huge amount of courage” to break into people’s houses, a judge declared as he allowed a serial intruder walk to free from court.

    Judge Peter Bowers added that prison did little good for anyone and admitted he could be pilloried for his decision to let Richard Rochford go free after he admitted to a string of burglaries.

    Rochford was facing a term of two-and-a-half years when the judge decided against custody, accepting he had been harmed by prison after becoming addicted to heroin treatment drug Subutex.


    He carried out one raid while his girlfriend, Amy Kyme, who also escaped a jail term, acted as a lookout.

    Judge Bowers told Rochford, 26, at Teesside Crown Court: “It takes a huge amount of courage, as far as I can see, for somebody to burgle somebody’s house. I wouldn’t have the nerve.

    “Yet somehow, bolstered by drugs and desperation, you were prepared to do that.”

    that is not "courage" that's a lack of morals

    courage is what our troops display everyday in putting their safety and well being in the background while they defend those who cannot defend themselves


    poor choice of words for that judge and someday "bolstered by drugs and desperation" this guy is going to hurt or kill someone and he'll be before that judge again


    never mind what it feels like for the victims when they find their houses have been invaded...tough to feel safe after that...II know from first hand experience

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    I did a B&E once as a kid, maybe thirteen years old? Didn't get caught, got questioned (boy, that scared the shit out of me).

    I have a lot of regrets, but that one is the biggest, still feel horrible about it. Wish I could find those people and say "sorry, I was an idiot."

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
