Why would anyone wish to bring trouble to their door by putting their anonymity aside. It's not about having balls, at least they've used common sense and not used their family name, just as you didn't !

there are some things lyndon that i would'nt hesitate to report someone for such as muggings, abused kids,hurting the elderly drugs etc but i have seen the affect these house raids have on innocent kids listening to them scream when a dozen police officers kick their doors down and take mummy or daddy away these inocent kids arnt responsible for what their idiot parents do,and i just dont think that putting kids through this for a few cigs is justified,when the police could use their time to concentrate on more serious crimes

the old saying he who is without sin springs to mind im sure theres not many people on here who can say they've never broke the law in any way.sneaking the odd extra cigs through customs when theyv'e been on holiday the odd extra bottles of spirits, speeding ,bought something cheap knowing it was'nt legit etc all small insignificant things yes but still against the law. i just think there are some things you can never turn a blind eye to but there are things that you can

im not saying its right not a saint, far from it,but if theses people cant get their money from cigs what are they going to do, it could be something worse. id rather they sold cigs than maybe turn to burgalry,mugging etc to get their money which i think would have a far worse impact on innocent people

ive read all this and i say well done the police for seizing these items thus saving the tax payer money the counterfit cigs cause ill health due to what theyre made with and the drugs cost peoples lives and make the users into petty criminals so yes well done south yorkshire police however if we lived in a decent society and prime ministers past and present had not allowed these things to get a grip the world might be a better place

Everyone chill out. The counterfeit cig game is one run by the same people that traffic "actuall" human beings and also exploit them. Men , women and children . Its all part and parcell of the black market. Those who believe its like Robin Hood ( helping poor people) are misguided but not entirly wrong. Yes cheap fags are a god send but also there are certain factors people choose to ignore. Now Angry you said you wouldnt keep your mouth shut about child abuse yet you almost promote the "cheap cig" industry. Wise up cha x
