The room had been searched again by the police and was in a complete bourach; linoleum had been rolled up, furniture searched, the bed pulled apart.
As a young man if you’d had a sharp shock like couple weeks in a young offenders prison (ie not long enough to get used to it or get over the shock of being banged up) would it have shaken you up enough to straighten up??? on June 11, 2009 at 9: 25 pm bourach
It really does make me sad when you see the start some kids get in life, its good to see it pulled back. on June 11, 2009 at 2: 19 pm R/T bourach – you’re obviously the exception that proves the rule! on June 11, 2009 at 7: 42 pm Met Plod
