A 16 year old boy convicted of burglary in West Yorkshire was instructed to write an apology letter to his victims as part of his sentence. What came out was pretty much the opposite, but the young offender had some sound advice for the victims:
The letter is riddled with really stupid spelling errors, but the kid has a point. It reads:
“I don’t know why I am writing a letter to you! I have been forced to write this letter by the ISSP. To be honest I’m not bothered or sorry about the fact I burgled your house. Basically it was your fault anyways. I’m going to run you through the dumb mistakes you made. Firstly, you didn’t drow (sic) your curtains which most people now (sic) to do before they go to sleep. Secondly your (sic) dumb you live in Stainburns a high risk burglary area, and your (sic) enough to leave your downstairs kitchen window open. I wouldn’t do that in a million years. But anyways I don’t feel sorry for you and I’m not going to show any syhmpth (sic) or remoers.(sic)”
At least the kid told them how to avoid invasions from people like him in the future.
