I was reading the on-line version of our local newspaper when I came across this -
"The defendant was known to the victim. Mr ..... ran a small drug dealing enterprise with his son and would often sell small quantities of cannabis to ...........
The court heard how the victim Mr ..... would buy bulk quantities of cannabis for approximately £1,000 and then his son would divide the drugs up into smaller quantities for resale."
I'm not suggesting for one moment that the victim deserved what happened to him, but the description of him makes it sound as if he was running some kind corner shop, or doing a public service. He was drugs dealer pure and simple, and a fairly large scale one at that.
