A 13-year-old boy has walked free from court after admitting smashing up a shop with a stolen golf club as his mother said the riots are because the government does "f*** all" for children.
The boy, who cannot be named because of his age, was one of the very few defendants to walk free from court, after receiving a nine month referral order for burglary and violent disorder.
His mother, sitting beside the boy's father, wiped tears from her eyes as the court was told she handed him in after seeing wanted photos of her son being circulated by Greater Manchester Police.
She is on benefits, does not live with the boy's father and has 10 other children, the court heard.

OK, I confess I'm ignorant. I confess I'm uneducated. I confess I'm a right-wing Bible-thumping neanderthal and so couldn't possibly understand this, BUT 1) HOW THE $#&* CAN PEOPLE KEEP SPOUTING THE "IT'S SOMEONE ELSE'S FAULT" DRIVEL !!!???? AND 2) HOW CAN PEOPLE NOT GET THE CONNECTION!!!!!???? WELFARE PROGRAMS MAKE IT EASY FOR BABY DADDY TO NOT BE THERE AND THEN KIDS GET IN TROUBLE!!!!
End of rant.
