    Sounds like this guy from West bay that lives in prison , when he got a parole or released , he would have a week of freedom then he would say it’s time for me to go back home , then he would go and commit a crime in front of the Police .

    The latest in a long line of Silburns to be in trouble with the police.

    There’s that growing underclass again, getting ready to swamp us and it’s homegrown and our own fault.

    It’s refreshing to finally see a criminal admit guilt, especially when compared to the excuses and lies that we have been reading about other cases here on CNS.

    Good enough for him!! I hope they put him down for a very long time and make an example of him. Who do they think they are? Assaulting Police Officers in the execution of their duties. I remember this kind very well when I served as a Police Officer in RCIPS. They cursed you, spat in your face, punched and kicked. We wouldn’t have arrested anyone if there wasn’t a good reason. We could have done without the paperwork it entailed. What is the matter with people? Clearly they have mental issues!

      What is wrong with people? One word; alcohol.

      If Garfield stayed home and had a joint or 2 the only thing in danger of being assulted would be the lasagne.
