  4. No, he should be shot!

  1. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/lincolnshire/4142463.stm

    A man who sent 35 hoax emails to relatives searching for news of their loved ones on the internet says 'He can't remember sending them and he's sorry'!

    The emails were made out to be from the British embassy in Thailand and every one 'confirmed' that the relative being looked for was among the dead.

    He should be bl00dy well shot!
  2. Shot? No.

    Introduced to the families, one by one, in a locked and soundproofed room? Yes.
  3. Much too subtle, and not as PC as being shot..
  4. sad thing is the messages will probably turn out to be true.
    dump him out there to tidy bodies away its not big and its not funny
  5. Heard it on the radio today, what on earth could he have been thinking when he did that? 8O
  6. He's sorry.

    So that's ok then. :evil:
  7. Okay, who voted that it's not so serious? Not you who's been traumatized with false information about the death of a loved one then..... all because of someone's idea of a joke.
  8. A case of shooting-in-foot anyone? Either he does or doesn't remember sending them :roll: God knows what he was thinking at the time. I agree with woody - chuck him the ocean, make him make his way to one of the islands, and get him out there to help with the USARTs as least.
  9. Let him work in one of the make shift Morgues bagging the bodies, Sick git!!
