“Five men wearing hooded tops and scarves across their faces battered down John Moore’s door on Saturday morning,” mirror.co.uk reports. “The raiders demanded money and threatened the 63-year-old with a knife and a fireman’s axe. One of the gang’s hoods fell off and his scarf slipped down. He barked at John: ‘Don’t look at me or I will ****ing kill you.'” Charming. Mr. Moore’s ordeal continued . . .
After about 10 minutes searching his home the crooks – thought to be high on drugs – left, reports the Huddersfield Daily Examineer.
The suspects grabbed a video camera as they fled, laughing.
Shocked and unsure what to do John, who had stents inserted for heart problems six months ago, called his son Theo, 32.
Theo dialled 999 but the pair had to wait around three hours for police [ED: seen above in a previous engagement] to attend.
Officers blamed a “busy night.”
By the time police had arrived John was panic-stricken and feeling unwell and officers called paramedics who sent him straight to hospital.
It was there he was told by doctors he had probably had a heart attack.
Welcome to The Land of Hope and Glory, where Glory is on holiday, leaving only hope behind. Seriously folks, this is what happens to a disarmed people. Who no doubt consider the cop’s excuse for their tardiness – they were busy all night because of fighting in Huddersfield Town Centre – and clamor for more taxpayer spending on police. Don’t let this be you.
