I think you’ll find at least one of them was a potential suicide attempt, drove slowly past there and saw a group of officers talking what looked like a a young teenager, sat with his legs over the wrong side of the barrier.

Try thinking before speaking.

Such rubbish need beating senseless and throwing in the Medina. Will be useless forever and costing us all a fortune, along with every squiffy clone they dump on us to pay for.
