Man arrested for vandalising eight ambulances: this is deliberate danger to life

The vandal put eight ambulances out of action when they are needed to handle coronavirus cases.

Take note: selfish idiots are still trying to harm our chances of surviving the coronavirus.

At a time like this, criminal damage to ambulances – putting them out of action – is nothing short of a deliberate attempt to endanger human lives.

The charges against the arrested man should reflect that – as should the penalty if he is convicted.

A man has been arrested after eight ambulances were damaged in Kent, forcing them out of service as medics across the UK contend with the spread of coronavirus.

The 47-year-old from Ramsgate, Thanet, was detained on Wednesday morning on suspicion of causing criminal damage on two dates last month.

Kent Police had launched an appeal after holes were drilled into nine tyres on six ambulances at a depot overnight on Saturday 21 March.

    I would personally consider damaging ambulances during a pandemic as treason (diito for assaulting NHS workers to steal their ID, which I understand has also been happening) and would want the reflected in the punishment handed out. I would seriously consider giving the perpetrator of these acts a life sentence with no possibility of parole as a warning to others who have been behaving in such a manner.

    One would expect a hefty sentence, especially under the circumstances, but Prisoners are being released early because of Corona virus affecting staff absences.

    If convicted the NHS should treat him as a private patient and be made to pay for his treatment.

    Surely he should be tried for attempted murder and get a good long jail sentence. Sadly, I expect he will claim diminished responsibility and charges dropped, unless he can be committed to a psychiatric facility for an indefinite period.

    Would make a great deterrent for other such morons.

    Age is no excuse – but a 47 year-old ffs? And on TWO separate occasions?

    No doubt there’ll be a ‘mental health’ plea. Always the way with people who seek to damage things that help people, or those least able – even unable – to fight back.

    I hope they’re jailed and it’s made known to the rest of the prison what he’s gone in for.

    Like what should happen to nonces, there ought to be no segregation, and no special dispensation for the likes of this rat.

    At first, I reacted with the same anger and disbelieving disgust as yourself.

    But then I thought “A 47 year-old!? Sounds very odd. Is he completely compos mentis!?”

    So I think he, and the behaviour, should be examined in some depth before assuming that a harsh punishment would , somehow, make sense to somebody who is capable of doing something so weird.
    At 47, he is hardly a naughty teenager.

    This piece of s/work is from Thanet where I live. Unfortunately there seems to be no shortage of his type here.
