For more than two years, Sydney Davis's house has been under siege from youths throwing stones. After two hours of bombardment in the latest attack and no sign of the police, the 65-year-old retired builder decided enough was enough. As a particularly large missile landed in his kitchen, he grabbed a plank of wood from the garden and ran towards the gang to scare them away. The police arrived just in time — to arrest Mr Davis for possession of an offensive weapon. He now faces up to six months in prison. The youths ran off. 'What in the world is this country coming to that the police arrest people like me for protecting their own property?' he said yesterday.
'The police say they want to reduce crime, yet they let evil little toe-rags like this off. Then they prosecute hard-working, upstanding residents like me. The law is, quite simply, a colossal ass.'"
