    What do you suggest then to help stop these bikes getting stolen?

    Public spirit!

    When the service is missing, then it'll be missed.

    It is a response to this post of yours.

    I just forgot to quote it.

    Also FWIW I spent many evenings in a pub in the 80s drinking (after 'hours') with the CID team from one of the stations in Leicester (my girlfriends best mate was 'seeing' one of them) and some of their banter went well beyond the odd beating they dished out.
    I could elaborate but not in this thread, that thief deserves a good slap IMO.

    I still don't see how its relevant Mr Nut. I was commenting on days when those who assaulted public servants tended to get more significant punishment. I hadn't made any comment about aggrieved public servants taking matters into their own hands, and hadn't even dreamed of suggesting that was a desirable state of affairs, so to invite me to defend something I hadn't even thought about just seemed a bit jarring.

    As for me? Well, if I were minister for thieving scumbagery id chop their hands off. Stops repeat offending dead, and gives a strong incentive not to don the crime in then first place ;). Id then order them on a diet of soup, which they'd have to eat with chopsticks.

    I just wish that public servants realised that is what they were but ho-hum, probably before your time though.

    This and much stiffer sentencing until emergency services are considered sacrosanct.

    Public spirit!, its theft has just proven there is non. The courts wont legistlate specifically for the thefts of paramedic equiptment. A theft is a theft.

    its a good thing I'm not a public servant then.

    I'm all for heavier sentencing for crimes of this nature, nothing more than that.

    I'm not getting drawn into a discussion of police brutality in the 1980s because its irrelevant to this discussion and is a different topic entirely. I never even thought about it, much less mentioned it, so do not need to answer to you over the matter.

    So you would prefer it that a paramedic who is there because there is an emergency wastes time trying to find somewhere to secure a bike?
    The courts don't legislate, Parliament makes the laws and the courts apply them. If Parliament says "Here's the sentences for assaults or other crimes against emergency services" the courts will apply them accordingly.

    So do you really think this is going to happen then? and when? I think your having a laugh or not very well.

    And your proposal is what? Let people die?

    FFS, they aren't this stupid in SC&P

    I'm not arguing with you any further, just go to the Doctors and get the help you need.

    In your strange world my doctor is probably looking for a safe place to park his car rather than dealing with patients.

    But don't worry there'll be no further conversations with you anyway.
