What I Want For Christmas…

…ten minutes in a locked room with the people who did this:

A mute boy who spoke for the first time after getting a puppy for his birthday has gone quiet again after thieves stole it.

Liam Hainsworth, four, had not uttered a word until new born puppy Milie entered his life.

But he was shocked back into silence when crooks snatched the £900 dog from his back garden.

Absolute scum.

And I can say that, without fear of contradiction by some jumped-up little ‘progressive’ with delusions of grandeur.

Because I’m not a magistrate who has to cower from the likes of Christine Dean…

Dear Santa

Can I please have ten minutes when Julia's finished, if there's any thing left?

Furor Teutonicus said...

Could I take in an Oxycetelyne cutting set as well?

Uncle Marvo said...

I'm first after Julia. You might want some carpentry tools and a big spade.

No, not Mr. T.

While I have no problem with your Charles Bronson style fantasies of dealing with people such as this, I think you are a bit off beam by making out that this is a particularly nasty crime because the victim is a deaf boy.

IMO theft is morally wrong period, whoever the victim is. Apart from the fact the criminals undoubtedly had no idea it was a deaf boys dog, in my view it would be as bad a crime if it was Richard Branson's dog.

The implication of saying this is a particularly nasty crime is that it is somehow 'OK' to steal from other people who are more fortunate in life than a deaf boy. You create a hierachy of victimhood.

And we've seen how well that works with NULabour's victimhood poker system for minorities, gay people and the disabled.

@sobers:

Not so.

Stealing a dog is the crime, regardless of whose dog it was.

I'll still have the second ten minutes please.

RAB said...

Stealing a dog is more akin to kidnapping than theft.
It isn't just a thing, it has a personality, it is part of the family and is loved in a way that you cant work up for your mobile or your ipod.
If I caught someone trying to steal my pooch, I'd be up on manslaughter charges at the very least!
There seems to be a long queue. Maybe I can just clean up with a vat of Sulphuric acid when you all have finished?

Re the second link in your post Julia, the father of one of those involved has sided with the magistrate.

Happy to be first reserve in case anyone's feeling a bit under the weather on the day.

If we can't have Establishment justice then citizen justice is fine by me.

JuliaM said...

@Uncle Marvo: Lol!

@sobers: Oh, to clarify, I'd find this just as disgusting no matter who owned the dog. Unfortunately, it seems to be on the rise, as this very morning in my local paper there were other reports of pedigree puppies being stolen.

And as RAB points out, this isn't an inanimate object like a tv or car, which makes it worse.

Who the hell buys a 'hot' pedigree puppy anyway?!?

@staybryte: Yes, encouraging! Even more so when the father says he'll make the little swine pay. Though what's the betting that that rang alarm bells in the local SS office, and there's now a task force assembling to swoop in and ensure the 16 year old's right are upheld..?

@John R: Indeed. People seem to be quick to forget that when state justice lets people down, the alternatives are usually much less palatable to the do-gooders...

James Higham said...

Yes, scum is the word. There are other words too.

MTG said...

You can always count on JuliaM to keep a sense of proportion in the aftermath of some miserable and pathetic act.

Far from her be any intention to rouse the village with chants of "Hanging is too good" and posture at the vanguard with a flaming torch.

Odd that nobody in the posse is in possession of a useful chainsaw to free up the puppy rustler's legs.

"Some jumped-up little ‘progressive’ with delusions of grandeur."

Oh look, as by magic one has appeared in the post above mine.

The case with the magistrate was especially annoying ... for once one of 'um does/says something sensible amd is promptly stomped on

Lobengula's sangomas had the best idea. To punish a malefactor or to extract a confession they would staple the suspect/prisoner to the ground with stout wooden hoops. The suspect would be thus stapled next to a red ants nest; a trail of honey would be laid from the nest to the honey-filled ears of the suspect. Then the nest would have its top kicked off.
A suspect who confessed when the ants started eating his brain would be speared to save him further agony. Confirmed criminals were left to suffer.

Oh, we've come far since the days of flaming torches, MTG. Think of the H&S aspect!

I'm pretty sure there's a 'Flaming Torch' simulation app for my iPhone....

"The case with the magistrate was especially annoying ... for once one of 'um does/says something sensible amd is promptly stomped on"

And by someone who, by rights, should not feel herself above that magistrate...

"Lobengula's sangomas had the best idea."

I wonder if London Zoo has any of those ants...?

sobers said...

Don't get me wrong, I'm a dog owner, I have a pedigree puppy that would undoubtedly be of interest to scum such as in this story. If someone took my dog, and I caught them, well I wouldn't be responsible for what occurred. And I have plenty of acres to dispose of the evidence.......
