I see there are a bunch of yo-yos here, who are more judgmental than sharia law. I would have hoped that humanity had progressed past 4th century thinking, but troglodytes seem to persist like the cockroach.

I expect the next thing out of their mouths is that Obama should propose mandatory victim insurance just like mandatory health insurance, after all no one should suffer the horrors of being a victim.

On any given day, what prevents a criminal from being a victim? I'm sure there will be lots of vengeful answers to this, all which reveal the thoughts of the speaker. That or silence.

So, what's your answer?

Thank you for proving my point. You just stated that criminals aren't people like you and me. You have in effect dehumanized them.

Isn't that what they did to their victims?

Naw, forget about cannabis & smoking, there's an even "bigger" problem to worry about...

Obesity costing the same as smoking

About time it was taken seriously

"There were 75 live criminal investigations at the moment into child exploitation in the West Midlands and a further 210 cases were being looked into, the council said."

That's just one council & how many in Britain?

Nice one UK!(Sorry Yanks)

Definitely a Darwin Award...

Pedestrian collides with lorry

Why

Stop & think!


Having had a pedestrian run into the side of my Land Rover while stopped at a set of traffic lights I can quite see how a pedestrian could collide with a lorry.

But your vehicle was stopped. For serious head injuries as reported, the lorry must have been travelling at a fair speed.

@Bernie - I also wonder about that comment, a bit uncharitable considering, but I have found this

Witnesses at the scene described how the man was fatally injured as he leaned out to check the road.

You've stated publicly that you would love to go out in an Eddie Stobbart truck. The only difference between theirs & mine is the lettering on the side. Some time previous to your comment, I made you an offer which you did not accept.

Uncharitable? you know my history so your comment was uncharitable! Leaning out to check the road? Confirmation the Darwin Award was earned!

Capaldi to return for season 9

""Yes, he’s confirmed,” Moffat said, although he later added that Jenna Coleman, who has played the Time Lord’s companion Clara Oswald for the past two years, had not, something that could fuel rumors in the U.K. press that she is going to leave the show following the upcoming Christmas special."

Looked pretty obvious to me :-(

So... What does this little ditty say about the caliber behind those "MSCE" qualifications?...


Five-year-old passes Microsoft exam

A boy from Coventry has become the youngest computer specialist in the world.

Ayan Qureshi is now a Microsoft Certified Professional after passing the tech giant's exam when he was just five years old...




All just "child's play"?...

IT is what you make it...

This post says a lot about your calibre!
