In the Christchurch District Court yesterday, the first seven people appeared before Judge Stephen Erber.
Each of the 38 is charged with unlawful assembly relating to a gathering of 39 revving cars and 140 people at Chaneys, Belfast, just after midnight on July 10.
Police had planned to drip-feed those charged through the court to avoid clogging the system.
However, the judge took a different view yesterday, saying all 38 should be seen on the same day by the same judge to achieve consistent penalties..."
SO have them ALL flogged to within an inch of their lives!
