'Foolish' Burnley teen returned to fight ‘tooled up’

First published in News

TWO Burnley teenagers involved in trouble after one went out looking for a ‘scrap’ were given community orders.

The town’s crown court heard how a ‘foolish’ 17-year-old had got ‘thoroughly drunk’ and had ended up on the receiving end of some violence after he came across a man, probably older and bigger than him.

The youth, who a judge ordered should not be named, had gone to hospital and had then gone back with support, asking for what he called a real fight and “tooled up” "with iron bars.

Dale Nightingale, 18, was recruited for the second part of the incident but, unlike his co-defendant, he had never broken the law before.

The defendants had admitted affray. The 17-year-old was given an 18 month youth rehabilitation order, with supervision and 150 hours unpaid work. Nightingale, of Piccadilly Road, received a community order, with 12 months supervision and 60 hours unpaid work.

Usual smack on the hand from our worthy judges. These criminals must roll around with laughter as the leave the court.

What is it with this website. There's a news item on this site about a shopkeeper who was lashed with a knife, yet there's no comment allowed, but comment is allowed here?

It's like L.E.T is carrying out its very own apartheid. Convicted criminals with Christian names; comments allowed. Convicted criminals with Asian names; no comments allowed.

Now tell me this. Why should one section of the community be put through the pillory of this newspaper's comments section while another section of the community is given an absolution? To me this stinks of you know what.

Either comments on all (after conviction) or none at all!

Excellent point Interocitor! It's the usual PC farce, we mustn't give our Asian brothers any cause to be offended in the slightest degree, nor must we infer that some people of Asian heritage are less than saintly.
