Repeal lost ball laws

Comment 9th July 2010

"Mother held for five hours and DNA tested for refusing to give children their ball back to teach them a lesson

  Lorretta Cole refused to give it back when asked to and was held for questioning at a police station where she had her photograph, DNA and fingerprints taken"

We need to repeal  laws like this that persecute the innocent. If someone chucks a ball into your garden then they have forfeited ownership and it should be up to you what you do with it. In this case it seems the police were not interested in criminal damage by the perpetrators, they just seemed to want someone to victimise.

Why does this matter?

It restores the balance of the law in favour of the innocent
