Lowest yet?

Posted in The Job - General by 200

We haven’t had a “200weeks Scum of the Week Award” for a while, so here is the latest inductee into the Hall of Fame.

Step forward one Ben Henley, a 24-year-old from Manchester, who has just been jailed for three months for stealing a mobile phone.

Nothing particularly scummy in that, you might think, until you realise that his victim was a 22-year-old girl who had jumped from a multiple-storey car park.

As the woman lay dying and while someone else was trying to help her, Henley helped himself to her mobile phone.

The victim died, but that was OK because Henley got £30 for the phone when he sold it.

DS Mark Astbury of Greater Manchester Police said: “To steal from a dying woman instead of offering assistance or comfort is unforgivable.”

    He should have the word SCUM branded on his forehead* after he’s spent 6 months as an IED finder in Afghanistan.

    *If he’s still alive.

    One full grained turd if there ever was one.
    Should have been hung, from a lamppost in the middle of Manchester City Center.
    And left in a gibbet for all to see covered in maggots.

    Well, I think he should be taken on a nice holiday. There’s some mines that need clearing in the Falklands. And it’s winter there.

    Be very afraid. They walk amongst us and they breed!

    How in Gods name can anybody sink below gutter level like that? Utter scum. No excuses for him could possibly be made.
