    Hi All,

    Just gleaned from the Daily Grail (sic)

    Jenson Button and his wife, model Jessica Michibata, pictured together, were gassed as they slept in the rented villa in the south of France. The criminals are understood to have pumped anaesthetic gas through air conditioning vents before raiding the property as the couple lay unconscious. The burglars took possessions worth more than £300,000 - including Jessica's £250,000 diamond engagement ring (inset right). The couple, who were holidaying with three friends who were also knocked out in the raid, only realised they had been targeted when they awoke in the morning to find the place had been ransacked.

    It would appear you're not safe even with an F1 pedigree

    Sorry Dave,just come back from the pub and didn't see your post.
    Is it true or are the French Police just finding any excuse so as not to investigate. They are as enthusiastic about these as they are pursuing migrants,farmers striking ferry workers setting fire to tyres blocking roads and railway lines

    No it doesn't put a whole new question to anything.

    It's a typical :dm: piece of fantasy. If the French police are saying that it's so that they don't have to bother investigating.

    I don't know if any of the cretins who write these "stories" ever bother to do basic verification but if they've ever bothered to contact the Royal College of Anaesthetists for their view they've obviously never let it get in the way of their scaremongering.

    Even the BBC now reference "perpetrators going so far as to gas their proposed victims through the air conditioning units before breaking in."

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-33814823

    I'm still not convinced that was probable, how big would the gas canisters need to be to achieve that outcome? Burglars are going to lug them about in stealth mode at night, then meticulously set up a feed into aircon, especially if it's not a unit per room aircon system? How do you then expertly regulate this to administer just the right amount to render victims unconscious without then killing them?

    Just sounds unlikely to me, it's an easy out for victims who slept through a stealthy intrusion resulting in loss of expensive items for insurance claim purposes. Does it also make the paper work easier for police to close it out (I've no clue)?

    Does no one realise that air con does NOT have vents that draws air in from outside?
