Suspected looter and his mother are the first to be punished with eviction
Daily Mail ^ | 1:52 AM on 13th August 2011 | By Jack Doyle

Posted on 08/12/2011 7:37:01 PM PDT by Niuhuru

A suspected looter in this week’s riots and his mother are being thrown out of their council home.

In the first case of its kind, Daniel Sartain-Clarke, 18, and his mother have been served with an eviction notice as council bosses seek to turf them out of their £225,000 taxpayer-subsidised flat.

Sartain-Clarke is charged with violent disorder and attempting to steal electronic goods from the Currys store at Clapham Junction, South London, on Monday night.

Guess the old adage “don’t sh*t where you’re going to sleep” takes on a whole new meaning?

Excellent! Bring this to the US. No Food Stamps, SSI, WIC, whatever, if you are Illegally in this country, test positive for drugs, or are a repeat offender (career criminal - give some doubt to people who make honest mistakes).

Also - without abusing taxpayer money to hand out to ‘the taker class’, the Liberal Progs have no base to vote for them.

They have been buying votes and power since Johnson's Great Society mistake. And the collective Right let them do it. Both sides are guilty!

out of their £225,000 taxpayer-subsidised flat.

That's nearly $275,000 in US dollars. Think about that.

The majority of the looters/rioters were um minorities, I have a feeling that only whites will be evicted.

Maybe these “good kids” with “bright futures” should have thought that there might be some consequences for their criminal behavior. Maybe being moved to a meager 100K pound flat would be punishment enough. But then where will they put their looted flat screen TVs? I love the comment how if you evict them, that they’ll HAVE to turn to crime. Uh, they were living in a very expensive “free” apartment and they STILL turned to crime. Completely empty threat.

Excellent! Bring this to the US.

Watch out what you wish for. Anyone can be accused of a crime. There's a concept here known as due process, and you can't deprive someone of home and property without it. One of the Dem's favorite dirty tricks is to accuse their opponents of crimes, smear them in the press, them quietly drop the charges later. If they could get you thrown out in the street, too, I'm sure they'd do it.

Understand, I'm not being soft on crime and I don't like welfare sponges. If this yob did the crime, prosecute and jail him for it. If his mom broke the law, do the same to her. Throw them in jail, not out on the street...

I look forward to seeing these idiots rot in the streets, where they belong. Let the little miscreants lose what enabled them to sit idle the entire time anyway, right? They deserve to be stripped of their homes since they have also made Britain look weak in the face of the world and even jeapordized the London Olympics in 2012.

It would sure be nice if the English would translate their news articles for us Americans. One day I will travel to London to learn English. It would be nice to hear it spoken properly.

They don’t appear to live in an “estate” but, rather, a very fashionable condo apartment that the government either owns or rents from the owner. It appears they had it made, but were such lowlifes, they just couldn’t resist a life of petty crime.

I see where you’re coming from, but these days welfare is being used as an enabling springboard for criminals to live a life of self indulgence and crime, while living off of the taxpayers they terrorize. Obviously there is need for reform and while you worry about liberals using this as a means to confiscate property, this is about WELFARE, not personal property being yanked. These looters were caught and convicted, not just accused. They have been living off of the taxpayer and they have destroyed people’s livlihoods and have also destroyed the job opportunities that might have sprung up.

Many people on welfare often do not (or refuse) to understand the value that people place on their businesses and their livlihoods, it’s often just one big joke to them. Long term recipients are quite frankly the least appreciative of the fact that other people take pride in making a living and take pride in getting up before noon each day. If welfare recipients have their beenfits stripped form them if they commit a crime, or their families suffer along with them, you will see a HUGE drop in criminal activity among welfare recipients.

“It would sure be nice if the English would translate their news articles for us Americans.”

Maybe this will help:

Council home = Public housing (Much more prevalent in the UK than US)
Council boss/leader = Public housing administrator
Flat = Apartment
Magistrate = Judge

“They have been buying votes and power since Johnson’s Great Society mistake...”

Generally, I don’t debate politics with liberals. It’s not because I can’t articulate my views as well as defend them. Usually, it’s just a waste of time.

But several years ago, I said to a white liberal “You know, many of you have no real interest in solving poverty, reducing single-mother pregnancies, etc. If you did, you’d have no one who’d vote Democrat. You essentially provide programs that really don’t give anyone a helping hand up. You develop and maintain prgrams that keep classes of people dependent on you.”

The guy looked at me like I was on mushrooms and after a minute said “Well, you may have something there”.

I doubt I converted him but hopefully, I gave him some food for thought.

We agree, and we don't.

These looters were caught and convicted, not just accused.

If that's the case, then the Council has every right to evict, and I agree they should. Conviction of a felony can cause cause the loss of many rights and privileges, and free housing is probably one of them.

However, the riot was only last week, how could there have been a trial and conviction (due process)? Furthermore, the article states that the youth was a "suspected" agitator and thief, not a "convicted" one.

Gov't should not be in the housing business, but since they are, they should follow the law and finish the paperwork before they boot tenants out.

Well, taxpayer subsidized housing isn’t the same as private property and as for him standing accused, he was apparently videotaped. Either way, this to me is a good idea and a perfect way to start taking a tough love stance.

When Queen Besse 1 was in charge, Tyburn hill was bussy and the tower was crowded, but drawing and quartering might be a little over the line, perhaps sending them to the colonies like Rawleys land or Botany Bay would be a acceptable solution aaahh, I forgot, that was then and now is now what to do

My goodness, now they'll have to find some private person's flat, break in and squat while he is on vacation. The authorities will allow them to stay there.
