SIR - If a firefighter is badly injured by a stone what happens then?

If an ambulance's windscreen is hit by a stone, causing it to crash with a patient on board, what happens then?

Police nab one of these scumbags, take him to the police station, bring his parents in, tell them he pays for the damage and the injured firefighter in lost wages, then locked up for two years.

It has simply got out of hand now, beyond the joke.

Borstals must be re-introduced with tough regimes because the courts are too lenient on these idiots who think it's a laugh.

As for the firefighters? They should turn their hoses on the vandals and let the powerful jets knock them over.
