Patrick, at Popehat, describes how Britain’s police these days protect young thugs by arresting old ladies with walkers for confronting them.
Renate Bowling, a 71 year old widow who escaped to the free world from East Germany, is now a common criminal. She had the poor judgment to â€œpokeâ€ a 17 year old hooligan who was part of a gang throwing rocks at her house. While in America or any other sane country Ms. Bowling would have been let off with a warning, Ms. Bowling is not so fortunate.
She has the bad luck to live in the worldâ€™s worst nanny state.
The Crown Prosecution Service today defended its decision to take legal proceedings against a 71-year-old woman who prodded a 17-year-old youth in the chest.
Renate Bowling, of Thornton Cleveleys, Lancashire, confronted the boy in the street after stones were thrown at her home.
The disabled widow, who walks with a steel frame, said she thought it was a â€œjokeâ€ when police arrived at the scene and arrested her for jabbing the teenager with her finger.
While the Crown, which undoubtedly prosecuted this vicious criminal for the sake of the children, claims there was no evidence that the youth who received this vicious jabbing threw the rock, it ignores Ms. Bowlingâ€™s own account, in which she saw the boy standing in the street, in the direction from which the rocks had been thrown, and later hiding behind a wall. Ms. Bowling had to toddle out with her walker to confront the little monster. …
What sort of country raises entitled young hooligans, who abuse old ladies by pelting them with stones and calling them â€œGerman whoresâ€? Hooligans who run to the police when theyâ€™re beaten up by the old ladies? What sort of country tolerates, encourages, and condones this sort of behavior?
