Crime of the century

Back in the 19th century there was a school of thought (physiognomy) that said that there was a recognisable criminal class.The pseudo science was soon proved to be utter tosh as criminals were readily available in all shapes,colours and flavours. The chap in this article though does tend to give some rather belated credence to the theory....an easy collar for plod I would have thought.

if ever i have seen a Knicker wearer that would be the guy every time. just look at him he looks as if he is having a good sniff just sitting there.

Oh my god this is priceless! And a Mayor, no less. He looks pretty creepy :) Just the look you'd expect - this is way better than fiction.

Hey Thud, are you an American or a Brit? I'm an American, and a dude by the way..

Cheers

The 'Live in Paris' album has the best crowd cheer I've ever heard after that long track ...(momentarily forgotten title), about Churchill...!

He certainly looks the type to wear them on his head.

Candle...I'm a true Brit but with a large family in America and a love of all things truly American. I own a home out in Ca and will be visiting soon so my blog then takes on an American slant.
