The lowest of the low

Well perhaps not quite but this guy is certainly down there with this little number...
Mail.
A man has been arrested after a handbag and shoes were apparently taken from a woman left decapitated in a horrifying traffic accident.
CCTV footage released in the aftermath of the accident shows an Asian man walking away from the scene with what appeared to be the dead woman's belongings.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police has confirmed a 46-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of theft and is currently being held in custody.
I don't care what religion, race or even species you might be, there are just some things that you shouldn't do and robbing the dead or injured is one of them. The distress to the victims relatives must have been immense considering just how serious the accident was in the first place. Most people in a situation like that either try to help or they try to observe, it's human nature after all, though I often curse rubberneckers when they do it on roads and have nearly had accidents myself when some have slowed down suddenly to observe the goings on across a road. Yet I could never imagine for one second doing what this guy did and believe if convicted the courts should throw the book at him.
But that sadly is another story...

One of the things I find amazing about this awful story is that no-one knows who she is. No-one has reported her missing; no family has come forward to claim her body.

Well, they know her name apparently, but little else.

The consequences of inviting people into our country who have a rather different philosophy towards life and death. Is it too late to invite them to return from whence they came?
