Man Objects To T-Mobile Shop In MCR

Youtube once again proves there's nowt as queer as folk

Man Objects To T-Mobile Shop In MCR


Did this man think he wasn't getting enough free texts? Or was he personally thinking of re-starting last year's booty riots?

Perhaps we're being too flippant, no doubt there's a sad story behind all this.

Here's the Police statement.

'A man has been charged for criminal damage and public order offences in Manchester.

'Jason Codner (born 09/12/69), of Cannon Green Court, Salford has been charged with section 5 public order offence and criminal damage.

'He is due to appear at Salford and Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 30 July 2012.

'At 4.25pm on Saturday 30 June 2012, police were called to T Mobile store on Market Street in Manchester City Centre to reports of an aggressive customer.

'A 42-year-old man got into a verbal altercation with members of staff and started to damage items in the store.'

Think he's just a member of staff

I think you are being a bit too flippant with the remarks.
I've had dealing with Orange, and honestly felt like doing that myself!

T-Mobile stands for tantrum mobile. Not a lot of people know that.

EDITORIAL: THIS COMMENT REMOVED: 'Shouldn't be allowed to live'? Darren just plain too nasty that.

"Shouldn't be allowed to live" and this is the response of a 'mature human being'? It's a bit strong. And how do you feel people who commit more serious crimes should be treated? Flayed, hung, drawn, quatered with their head mounted on a spike in Piccadilly Gardens? Get some perspective.

With respect Darren, when the 'red mist' falls over people they don't think in a logical manner and episodes like this happen. Whilst nobody can justify these actions, I imagine he had a very good reason to be aggrieved given how poor the customer service levels generally are with phone companies.
I wonder how many people would be unsympathetic if reports emerged in the next few days of people going into Barclays Bank and smashing things up?
Actions like these are unjustified but sometimees understandable. When Victor meldrew or Basil Fawlty do it on a sit-com we laugh, as we like to see the little man spazzing out and sticking it to a big corporation. It doesn't make it right, but it gives us all a little snigger, surely?

Is this video not sub judice?

Whilst this man behaved in a completely unacceptable (and illegal) way, what bothers me is the moronic behaviour of those standing outside, their comments and the fact they seem to be enjoying this uncomfortable scene.

I don't understand the cheering outside, the man is clearly a criminal.The poor man inside the shop could have come to great harm had he intervened, would they be laughing then? I despair of people these days.

difficult to see how he can plead not guilty

He didn't seem to be particularly angry. He did it all in quite a calm, considered way. And there was no anger in him when the police arrived. He'd made his point with T Mobile and had no intention of involving anyone else. I was quite shocked at how the police approached him in such an aggressive way as if he was some dangerous lunatic (or whatever politically correct phrase we are supposed to use these days). I am being tormented by British Gas who have both my numbers and use them to try and sell me stuff in spite of me asking, and them saying they will, delete my numbers. So if anyone knows where British Gas are located in the city........
