what he (allegedly) did was breaking the law. (If guilty) He should have been punished for the crime he committed, not based on the outcome or reaction of the victim. If the DJs are found guilty of...

I must, respectfully, disagree. The nurse in question was not the target of the prank. The fact that she had performed her job poorly (by putting through an unauthorised call) is nobody's fault but...

You missed the fact that the DJs didn't cut her wrists and tie her up by the neck. She chose to do that to herself.

You may argue that they acted recklessly, but they had no reason to suspect,...

The hole in your analogy is that nobody was seen or known to be hanging off a cliff. A woman was working in a highly rated hospital (it was treating the future Queen, after all). Nobody could...

Except that puting something in someone's food does have foreseeable consequences. If you derved up a cup of hot water and told them it was tea would be a similar level of analogy.

For someone to take their own life after being "humiliated" seems extreme. She left two kids behind. I can't pretend to understand why p[eople kill themselves, but the fact that she left a letter for...

They said (somewhere) that they rang the hospital back at least five times. Good to see that this was confirmed.

I still don't blame the DJs for the woman taking her own life. She may have named...

My SIL spent the best part of 3 months in hospital for each of her 4 pregnancies. She lost one around mid-term, so when a doctor says the mother should be in hospital, I'd tend to listen to him over...

The ironic part is the Kyle is also overweight. The funny part of any scandal involving Kyle on his radio program is that no mud ever seems to stick to his partner-in-crime, Jackie O. :confused:

I'm guessing it's because it is his job to comment on what's happening in the world. The Magda weight loss story was big at the time (pardon the pun). She was trotted around to all the different TV...

Was this prank (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2DbKNfiM6k) funny? Or this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3Tvf1ZVek8)? I'm trying to find where the line is drawn over acceptable pranking.
