Agreed. It is to be hoped that a similar sentence awaits this one:

Don't be a tool all your life!

It disgusts me how people and the media place a value on a life depending on the age, vulnerability or the job of the victim...

At the other end of the age range.....

Near where I live, last Thursday evening a 15 year old boy received stab wounds from which he died later in the evening.

Another 15 year old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Remember the good old days. As kids we played cowboys and injuns with bows and arrows and plastic knives and guns.

Now due to pc madness this is frowned upon. Instead many of today's kids "play" with real guns and knives.

I can't help thinking there's a connection there somewhere.

Don't you think it is particularly cowardly to attack someone who is in no position to defend themselves?  I can't understand why grandfather/grandmother is so often used in the description of attack/murder victims.  Are you worth less if you or your children haven't procreated (yet)?
