    Anyone watch the news clip they had? Sounds to me like everyone that was involved...even slightly....with that riot is getting made examples of.

    more like a dumbass.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    "You were pictured on a number of occasions with a bottle full of petrol with a rag as a wick," the judge said.
    "I accept entirely the jury's verdict that you did not throw or have any intention of throwing it but merely being in possession of it would have been terrifying to anyone who saw you."

    Amusing.

    Not harsh enough sentences IMO...

    Not much of a Potter fan, but I did see the first 3 movies.
    That guy does indeed fit the part as a bully in film since he seems to be one when not filming. I'm wondering why he got off so light. 2 years only? He had a fire bomb in his hand.

    2 years in prison is harsh enough for a young kid who made some shocking choices in a crazy couple of days

    You are 'man' enough to decide to enter a riot which resulted in theft and destruction of other peoples property...sorry...you deserve man sized punishments.

    and again 2 years is long enough given the circumstances and how many people were involved in the riots, you want to teach this kid a lesson so he becomes a better person! You smack him with a 5 years + he's not going to come out a model citizen
