    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...shire-12001120

    and i thought how can any one do such a thing??? i mean its bad enough robbing anyone of their money regardless but the man is blind! dnt u think he has enough trouble living with his disability already, they haven to make life harder by robbing him of £4000! its not even the fact they are girls because nowadays girls are can be just as rowdy a guys but that is just disgraceful.

    Yes, these incidents happen everywhere you look; why have you brought up this particular example?

    because hes an easy target - you dont honestly think that a thief is going to think "oh jeez hes blind cant rob him"

    Why do you think muggers attack alone single old people and not attack a group of seven foot blokes armed with bats and blades. Because they go easy targets

    Where do you live to hear about stories of teenage girls robbing blind men on a daily basis?

    What a ****ing retarded thing to say.

    By your logic, we must never talk about anything again, because there's always a similar case which happened some place else. Want to talk about Michael Jackson dying? What is the point, some other guy died in Ohio on the same day so it's completely redundant.

    By your logic, TSR should really cease to exist, seeing as how near enough every thread on the site is not unique.

    The incident happened not long after the man withdrew the money from the Nationwide in Broadgate, Coventry, on 7 December.

    My old age pensioner frail aunt was pushed over and had her bag stolen outside her flat in daylight. It didn't even get into the paper.
    They picked on him, as another poster said, because he was an easy target and they could get away with it, also because he had a lot of cash on him.
    They weren't discriminating against the blind-they'd rob anyone of any race or disability as long as it was easy money for them and they thought they could get away with it.
    Now they're caught they'll probably get Ken Clarke type treatment with 20 hours of pretending to do community work and free counselling. They might have to pretend to be sorry too.

    I think it's more insulting OP that you believe that this man is somehow more emotionally vulnerable and weak than other 'normal' people simply because of his blindness. I doubt he's any more affected than you and I would be from a mugging. You are treating him like he is a small child.

    It's still dangerous to take out that much, especially from a vulnerable man

    Every single person who is robbed is vulnerable in some way. In this case he was blind, in other cases it will be because they are physically weaker etc. etc.

    I don't know what you think about disabled people, but they don't spend their lives moping about their disability.
