Obviously he was not the full shilling, but when you have people roaming about freely with no way of knowing their background, then what can be done to stop it? All the more reason for people not to be able to just go to which ever country they like. We have many criminals coming to England now, rapist and murderers, some have no records back in their countries, so it is impossible to tell. So do we just carry on and take the chance that they are coming here to work and live an honest life?
We have the same problem happening in america,on top of the overcrowded prison systems which in turn release them almost as soon as they are arrested.This is one reason i believe in a eye for a eye type of punishment.If the only lesson learned is you get 3 free meals a day and full health care paid for by tax payers,then not much of a lesson is learned at all.
