What value a fine that does not impact on the perpetrator

Over on Junkk Male RE:view I rail against fines as a method of control... on what you but in bins.

Here I simply question what the point of them is when they are imposed on one set of individuals, but actually paid for by others... with sick irony, the very people offended against: us!

Who is responsible... or held to account in a tangible way?

Daily Mail - Police pay Channel 4 £100,000 damages for accusing station of faking undercover mosque footage

Guardian - Time to say sorry

Ch4 - Police say sorry over mosque show - speaking of counting the cost..

Guardian - At last, an apology from foolish policemen
