Man 'looted doughnut shop' in Manchester riotsA man looted a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop in Manchester hours after being released from jail, a court heard.
Thomas Downey, 48, of no fixed address, was drunk when he was caught with a box of doughnuts by 20 riot police during last week's disturbances.
Manchester Crown Court was told he had been released from Strangeways prison less than seven hours earlier.
Downey pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to burglary and breach of an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (Asbo).In mitigation, the court was told that although he was not involved in the rioting, he saw the shop unsecured and helped himself because he was hungry, having spent all his money on tobacco."all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.
"the world is a dangerous place place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who do not do anything about it" Albert Einstein

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
