Cracking down on those evil criminals.
A plumber with a heart condition spent 18 hours in a police cell after being accused of dropping an apple core while on the way to collect a prescription for his wife. Keith Hirst was arrested by five police officers, taken to a police station and had his DNA and fingerprints taken. The 54-year-old, who has had heart surgery, twice needed to be seen by a doctor as he complained of dizziness and chest pains.
Is this an extension of the broekn windows theory of crime?
