No doubt Cora Patterson will be called a “grass” by the ignorant and lawless.
She named her own father Colin Patterson and auntie Janine Patterson as burglars after a Facebook appeal to try to solve a Breightmet burglary. The two stole items of high sentimental value from the victim but CCTV footage was posted on Facebook.
Cora identified the two, saying she was “absolutely ashamed” of them, and she did the right thing. Criminals will only thrive if those who know the truth protect them. Cora wasn’t prepared to accept this, and the two have now been jailed. That’s how the law should work.
