Your views on: for­mer AM sen­tenced, trib­utes to burns vic­tim and warn­ing to dog own­ers

Carmarthen Journal - - Letters -

Par­ents are un­happy that the for­mer Mid and West Wales AM Si­mon Thomas, who has been sen­tenced for pos­ses­sion of in­de­cent images, lives within yards of where their chil­dren go to school. Here’s what you said . .. HAYDN JONES An ab­so­lute dis­grace that this was ‘dealt with’ by a lower court with­out, ap­par­ently, an op­por­tu­nity for the ‘ver­dict’ to be re­viewed. Deaf­en­ing si­lence from Plaid in any lan­guage. WINIFRED LEWIS Surely this was far too se­ri­ous a mat­ter to have been dealt with at a mere mag­is­trates’ court. The court should have passed it on to a higher court.

RHIAN GHOORAH To say he got away with it lightly would be an un­der­state­ment to say the least. A slap on the wrist is just not good enough, how will this act as a de­ter­rent to warn off other of­fend­ers?

A woman who died af­ter suf­fer­ing se­ri­ous burns at chip shop named lo­cally as Mavis Bran. You said . . . CATRIN PHILLIPS Rest in peace Mavis. She did my wed­ding. Bless. BAR­BARA THOMAS Such sad news, RIP Mavis. NI­COLA MOR­RIS RIP Mavis. What a lovely, hard­work­ing lady. Very sad.

We pub­lished hor­rific images of sav­aged sheep po­lice want dog own­ers to be shocked by. Here’s what you thought ...

ROBYN EL­IZ­A­BETH Of course it’s ir­re­spon­si­ble dog own­ers! It shows a com­plete lack of love and care for your an­i­mal! Part of liv­ing in a ru­ral area is teach­ing your dog how to be­have around live­stock. If you’re not will­ing to train your dog you shouldn’t have one!

RICHARD COMP­TON The sort of dog own­ers that al­low this sort of thing will prob­a­bly think it’s ei­ther funny or the sheep’s fault for be­ing there.

AN­NIE PAR­SONS The penalty needs to be tougher on the owner. We have had sev­eral at­tacks on our sheep.

ROSE­MARY ONSTWEDDER Just keep your dog on the lead. I do, al­ways. Mine is only off lead at home.
