Its good to get back to Sheriff Kevin of Duns but the most recent court cases as reported in the Berwickshire are
hardly inspirational. Assault on a policeman in Eyemouth by a man 'celebrating' the birth of a baby-man punching his girlfriend-with friends like that....; a coach driver fined for driving too close to a car in front on the A1-woman kicking disabled husband in front of 4 policemen-the couple had been celebrating their anniversary and it needed four cops to restrain her from this over enthusiastic reaction to years of conjugal bliss- a 'spat' in a ladies loo when a 32 year old woman 'snapped' and punched 'her rival' (all such affrays seem to be in the distaff toilets in the Merse-I wonder why) l and a Burnmouth man throwing a concrete block at his partner because ' he thought she was having an affair' He missed. Sentence deferred as the assailant 'voluntarily undertaken rehabilitation to sort out his behviour'. Not a vintage crop this time around. Perhaps with Spring in the air we might read about a better class of crime. Surely the descendants of the celebrated Reivers can do better than this?
