When I turned on the TV this morning and caught the news, I was presented with yet another example of the moral decay that's rotting British society away from the inside out. The riots throughout England that kept our newspapers occupied for a little while are now practically forgotten. But at the time, the behaviour of our young citizens was not a surprise to people who had to live in the real world. Now we have another example of the lack of morality within people today in the United Kingdom.
Nellie Geraghty, a 79 year old pensioner, has died as the result of a mugging. Superintendent Catherine Hankinson of Greater Manchester Police said regarding the incident, "There has been a level of violence used." A resident of Oldham, Mrs. Geraghty had carried a hand-sewn bag containing a small amount of her late husband's ashes, who had passed away 17 years ago, with her. When Mrs. Geraghty was attacked, she tried to hang on to her handbag, and "suffered fatal head injuries" for her troubles. Mrs. Geraghty was later found "collapsed in an alleyway" and sadly, died at Royal Oldham Hospital the next day.
According to Sky News, Greater Manchester Police have arrested two youths aged 14 and 17 and they are now being questioned on suspicion of murder.
