    I hope they do. And then when he gets to court, I hope the Judge adds a good bit onto his sentence for this!

    internal GPS and a script that uploads location would be fantastic at this point, whenever conencted to the internet just tricke feed the GPS position of the laptop... a log file of the last month wouldnt be too big...

    I hope they catch the cocky prick that did this... not only does the victim have a burglary to get over, they are now being stalked (to a degree) on thier own facebook account

    Only in the UK would a burglar be so confident in the crappy police system that he would do that.

    If I was in the division that deals with stolen goods, I would feel a little embarassed actually.

    total scum, even if they did get caught in this country they would probably escape prison and given a slap on the wrist.

    I actually find it quite funny.

    Well of course.

    What else do you expect from the courts at the moment when the prisons are at bursting point. We need bigger prisons.

    They'll probably get a "tag" to show off to their mates and a curfew set on them for a few months. if they ever get caught.

    She's probably far more chance of catching Swine 'Flu than the police catching this thief.

    a SLAP on the wrist would be seen as a harsh punishment in this country, its more likely the Police will recover the laptop then sue the rightful owner of having pirated music on her notebook rather than dishing about a suitable punishment to the thief.

    Well that wouldn't solve the problem either... you'd still have overcrowded prisons. Unless you are some kind of fascist that wants to execute someone for posession of drugs.

    Here here, I bet they will find some way to use the Human Rights excuse or get the EU involved.

    A prison is a hotel to most, they get Sky, a couple of pool tables, a garden and they only have to see their partners once a month.

    Re: News - Burglar steals notebook, brags on victim's Facebook account

    I saw an article in the sun years ago and it showed prisons from around the world and even the one in France was a total dump. They then showed a prison in the UK and they had sky TV, personal TV's and pool tables. It looked more like a posh hostel than a prison. We are too soft in this country and thats why people re-offend time and time again. They should do what they do in the US and put them in orange boiler suits and make them work cleaning up the streets.

    Most judges these days in the papers just seem so devoided from reality that they don't seem to have a clue.
