I can't believe that no one has heard or not seen any thing, very odd, but when or if they catch the culprit, may be they should give them the bill for repairing the toilets, and then put there pictures in the local paper to! name and shame them.

It doesn't seem that he's learned his lesson having been nicked 10 times, so why don't the punishment go up say 6 months in prison ? and if he does it again 8 months and so on.

I cant believe the cops have arrested this poor girl, "Police said that last June, the 18-year-old victim was found flushing the body of her aborted fetus down the drain of a public toilet and arrested for illegal disposal of a corpse," this girl will need help to regain some sort of normality in her life, the last thing she needs is a criminal charge to add insult to injury!! What happened to good old common sense?

I was their , with my son and the scene was like something out a die hard movie, it was an absolute mess, my first thought was it was a YAK bank robbery gone wrong with a shoot out with the cops, I don't think that any one should be driving if you have epilepsy this is a result of driving when you should not, as for the compo claim, yes the dead family need something, but that amount? its a bit over the top, was the 52 million £,$ or yen?
if someone has epilepsy it should be monitored and may be after a period of time let someone drive if they have not had a fit for XXXX amount of time.

Unfortunately the German guard’s in 1944 took Jewish woman from the queues for the gas chambers, held them in there billet huts for several days, until they had abused them or got fed up with them and then threw them into the gas ovens, so did it happen in other countries? Yes it does
