Thoughts of the day her ‘lovable rogue’ (Ed: !!!) died following a stolen motorbike crash have come flooding back to a mother after her son’s cousin was murdered.Unlucky family…
The 38-year-old says her son had wanted to be a motorcross rider. She added: “He was a lovable rogue and he had a real passion for motorbikes. “His passion took his life. ”No. No, it didn’t. His criminal action and general recklessness took his life.
Many, many people have ‘a passion for motorbikes’. It isn’t dangerous in and of itself.
“He just went out to do what boys do but he got into trouble on the way. ”
“He did not go out that night to get the bike, it just happened .. ”*sigh* The passive voice again, married to the concept that a love of fast driving is the problem itself, not the actions taken to secure that drive.
Which is clearly evident in another story in the same paper:
The parents of a bike fanatic who died in a motorcycle crash have paid tribute to their “exceptional” and “darling boy”.He wasn’t ‘a loveable rogue’ by dint of the fact the motorbike wasn’t stolen.
Mr and Mrs Coates, who also have a daughter, Rebecca, said: “He was such a skilful rider and rode with such courage and talent.
“His other love was that of his car.
“The scrupulous hours of dedication and investment that Luke put into his pride and joy showed what a conscientious and meticulous person he was.
“He drove his car like his bikes - hard and fast.”And isn’t it lucky for some poor unsuspecting innocent driver or pedestrian that he hit a tree, and not them?
“The highways of heaven have no hard landings son, go for it.”Ewww! Chavilicious!
