You ask: "Should cable theft be classed as attempted murder (February 1)?"

Yes, any action that causes serious injury or death should be, otherwise what signal are you sending? That it is okay to steal and that you will be charged only with theft, never mind that people died as a result of your actions?

Especially disturbing is that 50 schoolchildren were injured.
