So, what do these latest offences tell us.

It's ok to shoplift, assult someone, or be a junkie - because you'll only receive a tiny fine

BUT

get caught speeding and you'll have your wallet emptied, as well as points on your licence.

Maybe licences should also be issued to people as well as drivers, and whenever an offence is committed points are added to it. Reach a certain number of points and you receive a hefty fine or a prison sentence.

I think there must be more to this case than we are aware of.

Normally such an offence would be dealt with by a fixed penalty notice.
