Now and again, you read a story that really makes your urine boil as you try to make sense of the utter stupidity displayed by some of our fellow human beings.
This is one such story.
Although must of us probably displayed signs of being ‘a little rascal’ when we were navigating through puberty, I doubt very much that any of you would have been stupid or pathetic enough to want to cough in the faces of NHS staff in the hope of making them think that they would become infected with a deadly virus during a national emergency.
But that is precisely what a group of idiotic youths did when they saw some brave and heroic NHS staff.
Warrington Police tweeted to say:
“We have attended reports of a group of youths coughing at NHS staff stating they have Coronavirus.
“The youths will be prosecuted as will their parents.
“Parents/ persons with PR make sure your children STAY INSIDE.
“You too can and will be prosecuted if you fail to do so”.
The news that police can and will prosecute parents should their out-of-control offspring act like complete buffoons will perhaps be a shock to most parents.
The CPS has already announced that it WILL prosecute anyone who deliberately coughs on ‘key workers’ in the hope of passing COVID-19 on to them.
Who would have thought that, during this national emergency, so many out-of-control and ‘feral’ youths would have caused so much anguish, hurt and anxiety amongst our truly remarkable NHS/emergency service workers?
I genuinely worry about the fate of this country if our future generations are so willing to act like complete and utter buffoons.
I doubt very much that our grandparents acted like this when they were growing up during the last national emergency to hit the country (WWII).
I know for a fact that my relatives who fought in WWII and who died would be looking back at these idiotic youths responsible for these stupid acts with complete and utter disgust.
I hope that the book gets thrown at those responsible and hopefully the fact that parents can/will also be prosecuted for not being able to control their offspring will convince more parents to take charge of their kids.
Meanwhile, the youths responsible for the pathetic and cowardly acts will end up carrying the shame of what they have done for years to come.
To all of the rest of the kids out there who are managing to get through this national emergency without smashing up hospitals, assaulting/robbing NHS staff and who refrain from attacking members of the emergency services then; we salute you!
