    Obviously the woman had issues and this put her over the edge, but what if one of the tradio hosts committed suicide after a richard and sal prank?

    Because it involved the Royal Douchebag couple the Brits will over react and pass some kind on law making it like stalking or harassment.

    Fuck em. I got some of the only enjoyment out of a shitty childhood from making phony phone calls.

    The only reason they didn't have to get permission was because it was in Australia and the call was in London. I bet it wasn't even aired live.

    It won't affect calls at radio stations here. They are never live, anyone live on the radio has to be told so when they are first spoken to, and it has to be taped and given permission to air if not.

    Right, 0.0 effect here. The Brits, dunno. The Aussies cleared the call with legal, but I wonder if the victim's family could seek monetary damages for wrongful death. Would seem unlikely due to the logistics. Just curious, I have no knowledge of law outside this country and little about law within. :dontknow:

    Sal & Richard always ask afterwards if they can play the prank calls when they are the ones calling. Richard once said that they have around 30% of good calls that they have to throw away because people don't give permission to release them. I don't think these Australian DJ's did this, otherwise it wouldn't come out.

    As revealed on O&A's Jocktober, most phony phone calls are scripted, canned and sold from morning show prep services.

    It's very douche chilling. The morning show in your local market will say, "We have a new phone call from our resident prankster Stella!" ...even though the call is being played simultaneously in every radio market in the country.

    Larry the Cable Guy made a living doing this. Dozens of radio markets across the country thought he was a local prankster and comedian in their area. He was the "wildman" that would call in and do bits with the crew.

    In light of what's happened the right thing to do is to fire Sal and Richard immediately.

    This women was having a period of emotional pain.

    This 'Prank Call' could be alluded to as being the 'Cause' or the 'Push over the edge'. But in all honesty,How.....HOW can a prank call have the intent or even a reasonable belief of a possibility that this could lead to a suicide.

    A case could be made of why the Hospital didn't know better about the mental health of the nurse.Her work colleagues,why aren't they being questioned?
    C'mon........Perspective,Lets keep some.

    The only person who should be held responsible for that woman killing herself is the idiot woman who killed herself.

    Instead of making complaints to the Australian radio station, the Hospital manager should be explaining why he has a crazy woman working as a nurse dealing with the royal family.

    This wasn't some two bit hospital dealing with poor and homeless people it is one of the best hospitals in the country.

    Britain has pathetic free speech laws, the likes that a bethszygote would agree with.

    Because when you can quench free speech with your queer PCness, you can avoid answering things like an adult.

    I believe you can fine/imprison somebody for an offensive tweet there.

    Yes, they always reference some amazing call they could never get clearance for, BUT tradio and public access calls dont require consent since they are already being broadcast.

    The nurse who killed herself only transferred the call, she was not even the one who gave private information.

    if thats sarcasm its awfully thick... if its not then we are in agreement and you should neg openmike11 every time you get bc he is the one making that stupid statement.

    there are plenty of group of lovely people, and most are not 'black'.

    xenophobia is a primate trait, the only thing that separates us from the other chimps is our (supposed) ability to look beyond it.

    If all you see is race/skin color, you are no better than the 'animal' you claim to hate.
