Disabled pensioner who prodded stone-throwing hoodie in the chest is prosecuted for ASSAULT World War Two Renate Bowling German | Mail Online — Wow. Right out of Clockwork Orange.

A disabled pensioner was hauled before the courts and charged with assault after she prodded a teenage ‘hoodie’ in the chest with her finger.

Renate Bowling, 71, confronted the 17-year-old youth in the street after stones were thrown at her home.

Yesterday Mrs Bowling admitted a charge of assault when she appeared before magistrates in Blackpool. Magistrates gave her a conditional discharge for six months and ordered her to pay £50 costs. Afterwards the great-grandmother said anti-social youths were left to run riot while she was hauled into court.

    Get a clue granny! Shoot him dead next time, avoid assault charges. That’s what I do.

    What do you expect from the save the “praetorian guard” mentality that is encompassing the world.

    “Afterwords the great-grandmother said anti-social youths were left to run riot while she was hauled into court.

    She said: ‘What justice is there? There are a group of youths who throw gravel at my window and use foul language against me.”

    Yeah, the state has punished another free thinking citizen into quiet submission.

    Welcome to the new world order!

    As an English person working in law enforcement I have to say that no one thinks this more ridiculous that we do. Remember the police officers hands are tied. The government make these laws and the officer have to enforce them whether they want to or not. There is a big debate over this in the UK now and it is about time.

    Its not so much big brother, its more like a mentally ill uncle runs the country the way the voices in his head tell him to.

    Well Chris, when I found my job requirements (in airline security) getting ridiculous, abusive and seemingly unconstitutional, I got out.

    As a low-level person, I could have no say in what the rules were, but I could have a say in whether or not I took part in it. I had a tough transition to a new job, but I sleep well at night.

    I’m hoping you can have some corrective effect on the system, but it seems that you don’t feel able to. If that’s the case, you must decide whether to remain a part of an unjust and counterproductive system. My vote is to change careers, possibly go to work for an NGO working to change things.

    This is what you get with all the Darwin worship! Especially in England, were he’s so revered. They obvious consider the elderly a drain on the system, and hope they die off quickly. While the “anti-social youths” are valued and must be protected from reprisals. Who else are going to fight Britain’s future wars, the “pensioners”? Yeah, right. No the gov. will be harvesting those youths, when the need arises. And so they need to be kept as violent and anti-social as possible, until then. Because that’s what kind of attitude gets wars won. Not thoughtful and polite, intellectuals.

    Yeah, kick granny in the can for buggin the next batch of Rambos. She’s just a waste of food, according to Darwin’s less public writings. Reward those scrappy risk taking youths. They’ll be useful, the next time Britain’s oil reserves run a little low.

    I hope you know I was being sarcastic.

  10. As a criminal defense attorney in Massachusetts, I can tell you first hand that this sort of travesty does not just happen in England.

    As I recall MP’s are voted into office and form a government. If there’s a Nanny state, the majority must wish it. Same goes for the US, several terror attacks and there’s general panic and voters throwing rights away. By the way the Clockwork Orange reference is very appropriate. Unless they find a cure for cirrhosis, the UK is going to loose a generation.
