    Ok, I'm not really used to feeling this way, but to say that I'm fuming is a massive understatement. My nan lives in a sinlge bedroom ground floor flat in Bolton. She's been there happily since my grandad died a few years ago. She's 80'odd (not 100% sure, I'm crap with dates/ages etc) and extremely frail and becoming more and more confused. This afternoon she heard voices near the front door and walked into the hall to listen. She clearly heard a voice saying "No, I'm sure she's in, she was in earlier". So thinking she'd missed a knock or the bell she opened the door. As she's started to open it a young lad has burst his way in. He's attacked her, bursting her lip and knocked her to the ground. He's proceeded to rifle the place, robbing her of her bank books, pension books and cards. She's passed out on the hallway floor and the fucking scumbag has took the key, walked out and locked her inside, leaving her for dead. She's at the local hospital right now having xrays, my uncle has just gone up to get her, but I'm not going to go see her tonight, I'm sure she's had enough to deal with today. I've sent my love and will go and visit her tomorrow.

    Now it turns out that one of the people who live across the road has seen the lad leaving and getting into a van and has given police a good description if them both, so hopefully something will come of that. I hope so, because if he gets prosecuted then I will know his name, and will hurt this scumbag more than he ever thought possible. I'm a very patient, and NORMALLY sensible person. I will wait, I will bide my time.

    WHY THE FUCK ARE SCUM LIKE THIS ON THIS FUCKING PLANET??

    Believe me, if he goes to prison (and I really hope he does), he'll get his just desserts when word gets round about what he's done. Attacking grannies isn't the sort of crime that gets respect from the grade-A psychos.

    Really sorry to hear this. What makes me most angry is that he'll probably get some half-arsed community sentence because the prisons are full of mentally ill people who'd have been in the care of the NHS before "care in the community" came along.

    That's terrible so sorry to hear that. Hope your gran comes out of this ok.

    Usually I'd say let the police handle it but this is different. As soon as you know who this person is for sure whatever you do is fair game.

    I know how you feel, a few years ago my Gran's ground floor flat was burgled, although fortunately she wasn't there, so nothing even close to what your Gran has gone through. I wanted to kill everyone that looked vaguely sinister in south-west London.

    I sincerely hope (and it's very rare that I'm sincere on EG!) that your Gran makes a full and swift recovery.

    Really sorry to hear that. Utter, utter scum of the earth. Hopefully the police will manage to track them down. Never a good idea to take the law into your own hands though. It'll just be you getting banged up instead of them.

    Thanks for the words of advice...but I don't know if I could ever do 'the right thing' in the aftermath of this situation. If he is caught and it does go to court I'm going to have to use all my willpower not to vault the dock and deck the cunt there and then.
    If I do manage that though, then a cunningly devised plan will be put together...

    Oh, and if the courts aren't sending scum like this down, then I'm sure I'll only get a rap on the wrists if I did get caught removing his testicles with a rusty pair of pliers.

    Don't forget to make him fry them with a little butter and garlic and make the cunt eat them.

    Fuck! I saw some twats who were that type when I lived in Horwich...
    ...I hope they catch the little cunts and they get their heads (and arses) caved in while in jail.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    I hate to hear about this. Several UK people I meet these days complain about the rise of this type of hideous crime against elderly people.

    I'm really just so sorry to hear this, what a horrible horrible to happen to your poor nan. I hope she makes a speedy recovery and isn't too shaken up.

    And to be perfectly honest, if I were you I probably would want to cut their balls off. Not very constructive I know but I hope they both get mangled in a horrible accident.

    That's absolutely sickening. I'm really sorry to hear this and I hope you're Nan get's out of hospital soon and copes well with going back to her flat.

    I totally understand where you're coming from when you say you want to act. It's very easy to sit back and tell you that it's the wrong thing to do and if you do that you're no better than they are, but until you're in that sitation no one know how they'll react.

    Rather than do anything too drastic just tatoo Granny Mugger on each of their foreheads. IMO that should be a mandatory punishment for anyone who commits sick acts like this and expects to still be accepted as part of the community.

    Really sorry to hear this mate, that's just so awful. We all love to wax lyrical about how crime is a symptom of society's sickness, and criminals need rehabilitation and not punishment, but when something like that happens to someone you love it's impossible not to think in terms of the most awful vengeance, and fair enough. There's nothing legal that can happen to these guys that will make you feel that justice has been done sadly.

    The greatest punishment.

    That people who do this sort of thing are often able to continue life relatively normally because people can't see them for what they are is the greatest tradgedy here.

    Best wishes to your nan.

    Just what I was going to say. Unbelievable that it has got to this, and it's why these cunts carry on doing it, as they know if they do get caught, they'll get a slap on the wrist.

    /And breathe

    It sort of is until you go away from the retail park / stadium side and go more into the town - then it can get a bit ropey. In some parts - most of it is nice.

    Or rather was nice - I've not lived there for seven years.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    I used to deal with insurance claims from old ladies with no family at all. They were often cases like this. It was heart wrenching. One lady stayed on the line for over an hour giving me her story since her husband died. She was claiming on her blood stained carpet after thieves broke in and attacked her. She was in her 90s i believe.

    I'm probably not supposed to be leaking this stuff :)

    My condolences to you mate!

    sorry to hear about your nan fella, hope she gets out soon. No doubt the scum that did it probably has a string of arrests and should already be in prison. Such is the state of the uk. If u catch up with him stick a baseball bat up his erse.

    Well, I'm usually a firm believer in 'what goes around comes around', but this time 'the coming around' may be forced methinks!

    You have my sympathies :( They're so cowardly to target a frail old lady... it's really disgusting what this country has become.

    I was burgled a few weeks ago, but luckily my boyfriend was at home at the time. He was in bed and they broke in around 9am (they waited until I'd gone to work) but he woke up and scared them off before they took too much. They took our laptop and MP3 players though, bleh. But the worst thing about it all is not feeling safe in your own home afterwards. The slightest noise and you get paranoid. I hope your Gran is able to get over this and recovers soon.

    If I knew who burgled us I'd quite happily pay someone to send the scum to hospital.
