  • Can't believe the police attitude! Of course it's a suspected crime! Similar to prosecutions arising from driving with an insecure load,surely? Ok,it may be only bus windows that have been smashed,and no doubt the insurance will pick up the tab.The point is-it could have been so much worse.Just suppose it had been a cyclist,for example, on the end of that flailing chain?
