I spit, therefore I am (a lowlife, that is)

On the face if it, it appears a minor story – two young lads caught spitting in London; both get fined, and both appeal the fine on the basis that everyone else is spitting, so why can't we?

Eighteen-year-old Khasheem Kiah Thomas and his mate, Zilvinus Vitkas, were caught spitting in London, but remain unrepentant.

In fact, Khasheem's grandmother, Patricia Thomas, has been quick to defend her little angel, saying: "You pick out a child of that age for spitting yet everyone does it ... I see children and adults of all nationalities, young and old, spitting. They just picked on him. He's a good boy."
