A woman I work with was having a family BBQ a week last Saturday.
Lives in a not too shiny nice estate but she wanted to better herself etc. so she did well at work and the company promoted her and along came a company car, and as she was a homeworker, it got delivered on the back of a truck - new 09 Saab 9-3 in white.
People on the estate were making comments etc. but that seemed to die down.
Well, her 16yr old son went to the car to get some CD's - bang on the window, 2 local smack heads demanding the keys, he said he didn't have them and his mum let him in from the house but they dragged him out of the car and set upon him.
His brother - 19 - ran out to help his brother so they set on him too, so out came her new husband and her and they fought them off eventually (even though she got punched in the face and broken fingers) and the police came and went, with only cuts and bruises (and a possible broken nose for her hubby) to show for the ordeal.
Hubby started being violently sick that evening, rushed to hospital, had a brain aneurysm so they induced a coma to help his brain heal.
72 hrs later, tried to bring him round, he fitted so they placed him back under while they did more tests.
Was declared brain dead Friday.
The scum that did this were given bail, and i'm to believe they will be charged with Manslaughter because they handed themselves in?
Not a sympathy thread, just hits home when its someone you know. Whats happening to our society?
