Here are two very similar stories. This one occurred in England while the other is from the state of Utah.

While we share a common language and other things, it's apparent we and our cousins grow further apart every year. After reading the first story, I believe that Sir Winston would be rolling in his grave.

ENGLAND BOTH SAYS AND PROSECUTES WITH "Guilty until proven innocent."
