Burglar Electrocuted During Raid

Discussion in 'Diamond Lil's' started by TattooDog, Sep 24, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From the Portsmouth Evening News:

    A burglar died after being electrocuted during a raid on a shop in London Road, Cowplain. :dance:

    News Link

    "Cowplain councillor David Keast said: 'This is obviously a tragic incident irrespective of what they may or may not have been doing up there.
    'I feel very much for the family of this young man and I'm sure there will be a full investigation.'"

    My heart bleeds - life's a bitch!
  2. Shame there wasn't a "two for the price of one" offer on at the time !

    Serves him right
  3. Send his family the electric bill.
  4. Oh dear what a shame, Never mind.
  5. Aaah, but will his family claim compo on the fact his human right to burgle was stopped because an owner had the gall to have live electricity in his premises ?
    And will the Elf n' safety nazis be around there to sort the owner out ?

    It was the burglar's accomplice who dialled 999 for an ambulance to attend, so there is some irony in the story.

    However I disagree with the attitude towards the family of the dead burglar - you think they are criminals also, by definition? God help you when one of you 'little angels' gets arrested... :roll:
  7. Shocking.
  8. Now lets see yes there is a precedent for Elf and Safety - he was at work wasn't 'ee (the burgler I mean). Guess he should be sacked* for not carrying out his Risk Assessment properly

    *should this read 'boxed'?

    toatally agree with the sgt about the attitude to the family - not their fault the scroat turned out to be a tief is it? (well go on is it?)
  9. Ohm sweet Ohm.
