I think it's fair to say the thread title is short on fact.

am man was recently convicted at local mags court for assaulting a police officer - which resulted in a fractured cheek bone...The offender received an £80 fine......

so kicking the [inappropriate word removed] out of a cop = £80

riding a cycle where not allowed = £440

your answers on the back of a five pound note please

Most of that £440 was made up of the extras incurred by ignoring the enforcement process, as this thread and another make clear. Have you a link to a report of the £80 fine case you mention? I ask only to see if that too included anything else.

Abuse of facts. Fake news, if you like. Always read the full story, not merely the headline. Don't simply believe the first thing you see, or only what you want to believe.

Thanks for that. An awful lot of violence. Not made any better by no mention of the fractured cheek bone.
