Yes, Dots. It was in the UK, but the link Q posted showed an Australian article, where they mugged a pregnant woman and kicked her stomach.

Ah, I thought you were talking about our arseholes. I didn't realise you were talking about Australian arseholes. My mistake!

A Hertfordshire nurse who called a 99-year-old patient "evil", kicked him and told him she would spit in his face has been suspended.

Christina Gavigan, a sister, tried to drag another patient along the floor by her feet at Hemel Hempstead Hospital.


12 months? Why wasn't she struck off?

Having a look at the Nursing and Midwifery Council's fitness to practise panels, there were more than 70 hearings in just the first week of November alone :shock: The allegations in this case were mostly about speaking inappropriately to patients, and the conclusions of the hearing was that she was guilty but "all the eye witnesses to the events of the 11 October 2008 went to great lengths to point out that what they had witnessed Ms Gavigan do was out of character when dealing with patients". Her actions can't be excused, but a year's suspension sounds about right to me.

Tracking tags? What, does the school span the multiverse? That's got to be one of the most bizarre things I've read. Everyone should walk around with signs saying, 'I AM HERE.'

*snort!*

What the [EFF!] does he think a jail is for? Free accommodation courtesy of the Norwegian government? If he gets driven to suicide, then it's justice done.

'If it wasn't for the fact that I am an exceptionally patient person, I would most likely have lost my mind in pure frustration,' Breivik said in the letter dated October 15 that was updated on October 26 and October 30.

'Anyway, there are limits to what a person can take.'


The parents of the children you killed have the right to think they have lost their minds!

...although he had recently been allowed a normal pen instead of a rubber safety pen.
Breivik said the experience of having to use the stab-free pen was as 'an almost indescribable manifestation of sadism'.


You are talking about a PEN. What you did to those kids is the "Indescribable manifestation of sadism"

Did they ever decide if they considered this creature sane or insane?

He's a mass murderer, I'd be more worried if I thought he made sense.

From what I heard Bouncy he was a very high functioning Autistic man....who knows. I would have thought it would be a given that his condition would have some bearing.

A four-week-old boy "bled to death" after a home circumcision carried out by a nurse, a court has heard.

Goodluck Caubergs died the day after nurse Grace Adeleye carried out the procedure without anaesthetic, Manchester Crown Court was told.

The jury heard the 66-year-old only used scissors, forceps and olive oil at an address in Chadderton, Greater Manchester in April 2010.



:doh: :shock:
