Daily Echo: Thieves smash into 88-year-old woman's home Thieves smash into 88-year-old woman's home

POLICE are hunting thieves who smashed their way into the Hampshire home of a pensioner, while she was inside.

The 88-year-old's home in Carlton Road, Southampton, was targeted in the middle of the day, when burglars broke in through the back door and stole a number of electrical items and her handbag.

Although the pensioner was home at the time, she did not notice anything suspicious.

Items stolen included a games console, which belongs to the victim's grandson who lives with her, an Apple Macbook laptop and the lady's handbag, which container her purse and cash.

Anyone with information about the burglary, which happened on February 19, should contact Police Staff Investigator Katherine Harding at Shirley police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Come on the Southy blame the government!
these people are scum & even before this government came to power there were cases of this type of thing happening to pensioners with dementia right next To Firgrove road Clinic where the garage is off of Randolph street & why for drugs is the excuse they give.
So is it okay if I knock them flying go into their bedrooms take their computers/games consoles to flog to buy a beer?
these type of people are out & out scum

okay absolute filth & should be put in the stocks & free bad fruit & tomatoes thrown at them(I'd throw bricks).
these are the product of a society where you don't have to work as it's given to you & if you want it you should just take it.
We call these type of people scum as it's the only word the Echo will print so if you can think of any other word that describes filth like this please go ahead & print it !

My point is that it is becoming tedious wading through the endless daily helpings of pointless abuse whenever a violent crime is reported. Some of the absurd, ridiculous punishments some of you suggest for the perpetrators is nothing short of childish, akin to going through school books and defacing photographs.

Why not make some comments that are worth reading, instead of behaving like children at a pantomime, booing whenever the villain appears?
