UK Riot Sentences Are Political - By Carol

I've read a few posts about the UK riots and sentencing those who had taken part. All their sentences are political and it's as simple as that! The UK are basically crapping it because of the Olympic Games. Where I live, there are gangs of youths shoplifting and causing neighbours pure hell, yet those who took part in the looting are getting hefty prison sentences and punishment?
My car was scratched by a youth, I had a window put through and they terrorised me for 4 months and yet all they got was basically a slap on the wrist! These riot sentences are typical political UK bull!
