We have trailer parks too, you know

They call them caravan parks here, which sounds so much more romantic.

Though I think these guys are mostly city boys. This is a selection of the men locked up in Sussex in July. It was a bumper month, because of the pandemic backload.

Nothing particularly interesting. Drunk driving and sex attacks. Except the first asshole in the article, the Brighton Cat Stabber, a security guard who murdered sixteen cats. May he rot. He got five years, so here’s hoping his cellie is a cat person.

Incidentally, Scotland Yard ultimately decided the Croydon Cat Killer was actually a series of random fox attacks.

Back to our upstanding citizens, number thirteen is amusing, if you overlook the fact it’s a hit and run with serious injuries:

Fenton, aged 40, self-employed, of Lower Waites Lane, Fairlight, ran away from the scene but was later returned by his mother, having changed his footwear. […] he was sentenced to a total of three years and eight months’ imprisonment. But the sentence was appealed, and at the Court of Appeal on Tuesday 6 July, it was increased to five years and three months.

I mostly posted this so you could appreciate their intelligent faces.

Oh dear Lady. Those mug shots are the stuff of nightmares. I had one that was a flash of an image as though I was looking out my bedroom window to see a man in an orange jumpsuit looking back at me through the window with a gleeful smile looking through my bedroom window at my sleeping self on the bed.

That instant image brought me to my feet, at that window, looking out, expecting to see a man in an orange jumpsuit. I didn’t quite load the shotgun and go through the house to insure the residence was secure, but I seriously considered loading it.

Huh – I would have guessed they were the Democratic Candidates for office in Illinois.

Either that or the White House press corp before they put on their makeup.

@Skandia…an unloaded weapon indicates that you have kiddos which complicate home defense.

Sweeping a dark house with a weapon is not conducive to sound sleep for quite a while.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
