Good news for the family of accused Harry Ramsden of Hull when he walked free from his arraignment after the judge threw the case out due to police 'inherent laziness".
After the brutal murder of Gilligan Island in Leeds town centre, rather than go out and look for a suspect and interview witnesses, police in the town decided to look on the internet.
Here they found Ramsden's Farcebook page indicating that he was in a murderous mood. Two junior officers were immediately dispatched up the M62 to arrest Ramsden and bring him back for questioning. Ramsden's line of defence that it was a figure of speech was ignored by the police, as was his insistence that he was two hundred miles away when the incident took place.
After the arraignment, Detective Inspector Phil Inns dismissed the accusation that his officers were lazy.
"The internet is a valuable tool in our search for violent criminals," he said. "And although on this occasion it may have led us to the wrong person, it does not devalue it's use to the force. Currently we have two officers heading down to Swansea to pick up a EweTube member called AMurderer who posted a Red Hot Chilli Peppers parody, as we believe that his user name indicates he may be responsible. IF it turns out not to be him, then there is half of the players of World of Warcrapt who seem to be quite intent on butchery."
