Ruff justice! Judge tells thief bitten by police dog 'Good, I hope it hurt!'
A police dog who caught a thief by biting his bottom as he fled has been praised by a judge.
Eight-year-old German Shepherd Zak sunk his teeth into the behind of John Davies, who was attempting to escape after he was spotted trying to steal a bronze statue from a park.
On hearing how the criminal was caught Judge Julian Lambert - who has criticised the justice system for being soft - said in court yesterday: 'Good! I hope it hurt. Well done Zak!'
Last month tough Judge Lambert spoke out against the current 'soft' sentencing guidelines which prevented him jailing a burglar in Bristol.
He said the guidelines which suggested a community order for the burglar were 'wet' and he added: 'We live in soft times'.
But sitting at Gloucester Crown court today the judge jailed persistent thief Davies for nine months.
Davies, of Evesham, had admitted trying to steal a £3,000 bronze statue from a park in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, on the night of 4th August last year.

Sometimes the Judges get as p'd off as us.
I had someone who crashed during a pursuit try to blame me for him crashing.
The judge told him all he had to do was stop in the first place when directed, that it was his fault not the police as he was in control of the brake pedal. Guilty, thank you your honour!the sole advantage of power is that you can do more good.

Wish judges would act that way more often.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
