Default Does a dead bike thief deserve sympathy

See the local rag

http://www.lep.co.uk/news/tributes-t...ston-1-8280511

So this is a known thug/thief who was riding a stolen bike. Does he deserve tributes or condemnation or even to be called a "biker". Should the headline not be tributes to dead bike thief.....?

Harsh or fair. Discuss

There was a video ad on the article for Intimissimi. Umm... I forgot whatever opinion I had.

I feel for his family its not their fault he was a wrong un. I am for more worried for the poor sod he used to commit suicide against. What ever the circumstances they will always know that they were involved in ended someone's life.

He is from a known gang of thugs that threatened to strip naked a WPC and set her on fire. He was already in custody when his gang all got criminal asbos for robberies and assault etc.
There are suggestions he was attempting to get away when he was involved in the collision.

The rag has censored comment.

Feel sorry for the person he hit. He however sounds like a **** wit waste of skin.


Strike one from the gene pool.

People like this deserve all they get, to describe them as a waste of oxygen is being kind. It's just bad when they involve others, a nice brick wall would have been very welcome.
