Idiots have always been like that, it's not new.
I started my first "proper job" in Kirkcaldy in 2002. At that time there were three streets in the town that fire and ambulance services could only attend with a police escort.
I tend to be fairly liberal, but I think we as a society are far to lenient on inexcusable knuckle-headed behaviour.
I mean - attacking the emergency services? When can that ever be excused or explained?
