Nos4r2,

Your visious comments about the likely death of a child, however the cause, are deplorable.

Isn't it strange the way the media report things - if a 19 yr old beats up an old lady they are a thug/chav/yob young man - if a 19yr old gets attacked they are a poor innocent teenager.

I saw a case recently where a "young girl" was raped - makes you thing of a 12 yr old - she was actually 26 - if the 24 yr old had attacked a pensioner there is no way the press would describe her as a young girl.

We just don't know in this case what the 14 yr old was like. He may have been good as gold - just a lark or a prank that went wrong - on the other hand he could well have been the scum of the Earth.

Just because someone is 14 does NOT always make them an innocent child. On the other hand pinching a rowing boat doesn't exactly justify a death penalty either.

His death was the consequence of his own actions. Sorry, Tough sh*t.
perhaps this incident has marginally improved the gene pool in the South of England.

It seems a little harsh to rush to judge a boy of 14, he may well have been mislead or fallen in with the wrong crowd, peer pressure at that age can be very strong. Although it looks unlikely I hope he is found safe and well and I my sympathies are with his parents

You'd need to fill Portland Harbour before you noticed any effect

My comments are about the probable death of thieving scum that were doing something incredibly stupid. You do stupid things and eventually they catch up with you-sooner or later. In this case it was sooner.

It makes very little difference if he was mislead or had fallen in with the wrong crowd. He was still doing it. Having been burgled twice,had bricks thrown through the windscreen of my old camper and a truck by pissed teenagers and lost a couple of bikes to teenage joyriders (which they then dumped in a river)I have very little sympathy with ratboy and his cronies. If they die by their own stupidity then tough.

This boy pinched a rowing boat.

He is now probably dead.

You know absolutely nothing about him but continue to make these appalling remarks about his death being deserved.

Your idiotic and thoughtless remarks beggar belief.

Missing Boy

Hi guys, time to reflect and consider where this is going...

We were all 14 and I for one am luck to be alive from my days on Motorbikes.
I hope that he is found alive and well but the sea does not give back to many and not at these temperatures.

Everyone feels for parents in this situation and other people have been hurt with silly antics or worse from young lads who are too young to know the difference.
Respect is whats missing and that can take many guises. WHo will throw that stone... not me I have four boys from 7-16 and all I can do is hope and pray for the best.

I hope the lad makes and thanks for the pic as it brings it home. I am sure the first person meant no harm to the lad but has obviously being hurt before.

I will cast no stone...

It's amazing how you obviously know what I mean better than I do isn't it...

Point out to me where I said he deserved to die please?

If you do incredibly stupid things they catch up with you. FACT.

You act as though I'd said 'Paedophile' in Paulsgrove.

At a time like this a 'chat' may affect some people far more than we could or would ever want to imagine, please remember this is a public forum. RIP

I'm sure the kids (that's what they are) were going to return the boat, I doubt if they were going to sell it.

If it was my tender I'd prefer the boat to vanish and the kids to survive whatever..

Someone loves these kids to bits.

If the lad was part of your family you would have a different view - trust me.

Empathy is a word some of you should consider.
