Last night there was a report on the news about the shocking killing of Sgt Ratana in London. Let me say from the outset, that I think we are all agreed that this is a terrible thing.
Part of the report included a report from the rugby club he coached at, where the people were hugging and standing close together as they remembered him. Human nature will drive us to do these things, I understand that. But in the middle of a pandemic, are the media being irresponsible showing this on TV? How must people have felt who were unable to hug loved ones when family members died, and are still unable to do that?
This must be contributing to the confusion about rules, and to people not sticking to these rules. When its people we like to categorise as reckless, like people coming out of the pub, or demonstrating, we can say, “Look at them, that’s awful” But when its people we have sympathy with, it’s a different thing.
What do you think?
