Don't take the sea for granted

Alright I know they shouldn't have nicked the boat in the first place but they prob thought it was just a lark and they weren't doing any harm. Looks like one of the poor boys paid very highly - with his life!!!

"The MCA spokesperson said: "Two boys made a 999 call at about 2am this morning saying they had pinched a boat, were out in Portland Harbour, and were just having a laugh and were quite happy. They were laughing and joking."

That's the actions of a pair of thieving chav scum-calling 999 to bait the police.14 year old chavs out at 2am thieving don't deserve sympathy when their own stupidity kills them.

Don't think for a minute they wouldn't have taken yours or my boat had they been able to.

Didn't you ever do anything silly when you were that age? I don't know if they were actually baiting the Police or were actually scared but didn't want to admit it.

Then again if they were of the same mentality as most joyriders they get all they deserve!!!

Of course I did. I had enough respect for other people's property not to go out stealing at 2am though-and my parents didn't let me out at 2am aged 14.

Ahh I didn't notice the 2am bit - not many decent kids are around at that time of night in the middle of winter - camping out in the middle of summer fair enough.

mmm... still a bit harsh to basically say they deserve to die. Perhaps a photo of the missing boy would remind you that its a human being we are talking about.


(picture from MCGA press release).

There is a small chance that he has actually made it ashore and is freezing to death somewhere terrified of having the shit kicked out of him by (1) the vigilante boating community or (2) his parents who possibly believed he was tucked up safely in bed.

Tough. We're talking about the same kind of chav scum kids that got pissed and mobbed and dragged a bloke out of his car-then kicked the shit out of him and destroyed his car while filming it.This happened 100 yards from my house a couple of weeks ago.

They can take the consequences of their actions.

Nos - I think you were pretty close to saying that...although your stopped short...but codders said:

"they get all they deserve!!!"

I also think its a bit of a leap (unless you know the victims, which I presume you don't) to assume that they are quite at the same level of depravity as dragging someone from a car and kicking the shit out of them.

They nicked the boat - and I am not trying to defend that. I would have been quite happy to see them get a custodial sentence, and or huge fine to pay for the search and rescue opperation etc.
