I noticed various Purses (obviously empty) have been recovered which begs the question, Have?....... poor working class (pensioners or otherwise) have had their money stolen. This could well have been money for basic food. Shocking and disgusting. If these goods are found to be stolen, then if the culprits are on ANY' State Benefit CANCEL it forthwith and then issue them all with a 'Pick and shovel and transport them to a newly built Dartmoor, WORKCAMP preferable ....breaking Rocks and sewing mailbags.
