Tough on crime

A jilted lover tooled himself up with a knife and a Vicks Sinex bottle filled with ammonia and went to the home of his girlfriend and love rival.

That's right, Carl Zanetti manufactured his own chemical weapon delivery mechanism and intentionally took a knife on his little jaunt. In any court that says premeditation.

He sprayed one of his victims in the face with the ammonia and smashed a glass panel of their front door trying to get in. One could only be glad that Zanetti failed to get in the door and dread what might have happened had he been successful.

And the reaction of South Tyneside's top Tory David Potts?

To give Zanetti a reference.

You'd be forgiven for thinking that the Tories are going soft on crime. It's also a timely reminder that even in the 21st Century those with the right social connections can still get first class treatment from the beak.

Don't let the bastards get you down eh?

There used to be a Tory Councillor called David Potts in South Tyneside who constantly criticised his opponents for being “Lilly livered” and soft on criminals.
Surely this can’t be the same Councillor David Potts?
