A society is not only judged by the way the treat animals children or even weman but how it treats those who break a regulation to do justice, |Who put their heart above the rules of bureaucracy orschedules to save those in distress. Even if they atr on four and not two legged variety.

I really can't believe a company would do this! I really hope Tom gets his job back. Thank you sure for what you did. You should not be punished.

As an ex british rail supervisor I say great job Tom, and as you have a pts card(personal track safety) which the company trained you in to enable you to go on the line, just tell them you did not endanger yourself, the public or any trains, that should stump them!, and if it doesn't then ask them what if the dog was a 5year old?, and that you were in fact as the man in charge on the scene preventing an accident that could have happend in full view of the public!, which I'm sure they would...

Southern Rail... you appear to be blessed by having a genuine hero on your staff. Unless there's sometihing missing in the story the public is being told you should be honoring and commending Tom for his selfless deed. He honors the company by his loyalty to basic human values.

I know how he feels and wholeheartedly support him. As a Rapid Response Vehicle Paramedic I was disciplined several months ago for transporting a critically injured dog and his owner, to the vets in my response car on blue lights.

I know how he feels and wholeheartedly support him. As a Rapid Response Vehicle Paramedic I was disciplined several months ago for transporting a critically injured dog and his owner, to the vets in my response car on blue lights. The man was begging for help and I had seen the accident happen. Technically yes, I broke the law because I acted without thinking and used an emergency response vehicle on blue lights. However, our superiors in whatever employment need to remember that their staff are only human. Yes, rules are there to protect everyone but at times our humanity means that sometimes we have to step outside these rules in order to save a life (human or otherwise). If not, our 'humanity' is lost and what are we then?

These health and safety cretins need to be tied to a railway track and trains run up as close to their wretched heads as can be judged almost safe. They then need to be paraded through the streets in dunces caps and pelted with excrement. Who are these repulsive creatures?
