Reports are not vengeance

I wish to disagree most strongly with the views of Cllr Davenport with regard to the new Reports from the Courts feature (Court report is a retrograde step’, Times talk, September 1).

The councillor’s view that ‘naming and shaming’ is in some way an act of petty vengeance is also, in my opinion, contrary to the view of the vast majority of law abiding citizens.

I, and I’m sure many others, would in fact welcome more not less shame being heaped upon the heads of wrong doers.

I hope the law abiding people of Brockwell Ward remember this weak-on-crime, politically correct missive when election time comes around.
