It’s a hard life

Have your say

Young offender Cohen Roberts has a dreadful criminal record.

Ah you have to feel sorry for the poor lad, he had a tough upbringing on the Wybourn estate, where are the violins?

I had a tough upbringing as well on the Shiregreen estate in the ’80s, it wasn’t much of a picnic, however did I turn to crime? No.

I am sick of excuses about why these people are committing crime.

Five-year sentence out in two and half is totally wrong. Where’s the deterrent? There is none for criminals these days.
