Soldier Mocked Over Loss of Legs

A BBC report today reported British youths made fun of a British Soldier who had lost both legs and an arm while conducting operations in Afghanistan.

Sapper Matthew Weston, 20, from Taunton, England, stepped on a bomb while on patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, on 29 June.

While he was being treated at Selly Oak hospital in Birmingham his mother took him out shopping where they encountered a group of “boisterous” youths.

The youths were reported to have shouted, “He’s lost something… like his legs”.

This is one of the times when you just WISH you had been there.  As much as I like to think I am a peaceful kind of guy, I don’t know if I could have contained myself.  The group of obnoxious, disrespectful youths would likely have lost something themselves: their teeth.
