    Burglar may have foot amputated:

    A BURGLAR may have to have his foot amputated after leaping 30ft from a shop roof to escape police.

    Neil Shepley jumped from the second-floor of Greg's Discount Foods in Oldham after trying to steal from the store.

    Officers had tried to talk him down, but Shepley, 34, jumped in July last year, breaking three vertebrae and both ankles.

    do you think he'll try to sue the police?

    or will he not have a leg to stand on?

    (I'm so very sorry... I'll get me coat.)
  4. If he tries and loses, will he have to foot the bill?

    (obviously, he'd find it difficult to foot the Bill in future ...)
  5. He said: "When the police attempted to arrest the defendant he attempted to kill himself by leaping from the roof. He did that in response to the death of his brother. He remains severely injured as a result of the accident."

    Ahhhh bless, ok we shall let him off then.

    If he was trying to kill himself, why didnt he do a swallow dive and land on his head then? he was trying to escape, simple as.

    Hang him, its the only way he will learn im afraid...

    you'd make him pay the legal costs after a trauma like that?

    have you no sole?
  7. He was greiving over the loss of his brother? Then how does he account for the other 31 offences? And he stole nearly £700 from his brother-in-law? Which is it, greive for kin or steal for kin?

    Nothing funny about this at all. This piece of worthless lowlife got let off because of a self inflicted injury. Guess who is paying the medical bills?
  9. The end justifies the means. He probably thought - I'll steal this money, go out, celebrate and get legless.

    Thank you.

  10. Where Doc Shipmans replacement when you need him? :D

    The whole thing about his brother and grief is just an act.

    I'm surprised nobody told him to 'break a leg' before he went on stage.

    Room for one more?

    Back breaking work, robbery is.
  14. haha im surprised the only thing he stole from there wasnt clearence salt and vinegar crisps and a can of dinted rubicon!
  15. Cut his leg off, give him a peg leg made from newspaper and glue.

    No benefits as it was self-inflicted, and bill him for the use of NHS services. THe waste of oxygen.
