Sure, but what does that have to do with law enforcement? They're not the "car enthusiast revenge squad."

Of course they are; the middle classes pay taxes to try and get a police force which frowns on this sort of thing and reacts accordingly.
Actually when it happened to me they chased the car intermittently across 3 counties and couldn't catch it.

Having had the experience of having my own performance car stolen temporarily, and damaging it to the extent of needing a new engine and reupholstering, at the time I felt capital punishment is not enough.

You may think this is a little severe, but people who are into cars feel they have had part of their soul ripped out of them if it is stolen and trashed, especially if it is their personal hobby and they are doing it at the limits of their budget.

I think you misread the article - its about training medics how to deal with casualties whilst they are under fire and is probably as close as you can get short of having them on a real battlefield. The "battlefield trauma" relates to injuries on the battlefield, not whether medics are traumatized in dealing with the situation, although improving the ability of them to handle the situation they are in will reduce the likelihood of this happening.

Battlefield medics have to make hard decisions, including deciding not to treat casualties who are unlikely to survive if they are under severe pressure.
