When do-gooding becomes lunacy!

I don’t care who you are – there are times when you read something and you just think ‘what the fuck were/are they thinking?’

This is one of those times.

Now, in the UK you may just get by with a smashed in face – in totally crazy places like the US – you will die!

Mock muggings should be staged across the UK to test the public’s willingness to aid victims and report crimes, a charity has said.

The group Witness Confident says it wants to challenge a “walk-on-by” culture to street crime.

It says the disengagement of the criminal justice systems makes it harder for communities to fight crime.

Mock or pretend muggings – just to see how people will react? Are you nuts!?

What will they advocate next – a pretend child abduction?

Guy Dehn, head of the charity, said it had come up with a dozen ways that people could quickly make a difference.

These include faking incidents in broad daylight to see how people react.

“Mock muggings can be a way of working with the police to test public reaction,” said Mr Dehn.

Don’t be a have-a-go-hero unless you really know what you are doing. But if you are there and can take a photo safely, then that can make the difference.”

Sweet mother of Jesus!

Guy – I just hope upon hope you really don’t do this. At all. Ever.

    Haha! What the hell?

    Next on the list: shooting people–so they’ll know bullets hurt.

    sheeesh! What an upside-down, inside-out approach. Trying to manipulate behavior never comes to a good end.

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
