Burglar calls victims 'dumb' in apology letter

275x250.jpg A 16-year-old burglar who was ordered to write a letter to the victims of his crime did -- and he called them dumb in it.

The young criminal had been sentenced to a 12-month Intensive Supervision and Surveillance Plan, part of which included writing to his victims.

It had been hoped this would make him confront the way his crime had impacted others and make him see the emotional consequences of his actions.

Instead it gave him a chance to insult them (or would have if it hadn't been intercepted) using the sort of bad grammar and spelling mistakes you only normally see on Newslite.

"I'm going to run you through the dumb mistakes you made. Firstly you didn't draw your curtains which most people now to do before they go to sleep.

"Secondly your dumb you live in Stainburns a high risk burglary area and your thick enough to leave your downstairs kitchen window open. I wouldn't do that in a million years.

"But anyways I dont feel sorry for you and Im not going to show any sympath or remorse."

Chief Inspector Melanie Jones, from West Yorkshire Police, said: "The contents of the letter are disgusting but it does highlight the cold and dispassionate way burglars select a property to target."
