Raoul Moat did some very bad things. He shot his ex-girlfriend. That was a bad thing. Then he shot and killed her new boyfriend. That was a bad thing too. Then he shot and blinded PC Rathbone. That also was a bad thing.
There's a Facebook page for admirers of Raoul Moat. That is a bad thing. Moat's brother blames the police. If that turns into bitterness and resentment then that will be a bad thing. Bitterness and resentment are bad things.
However, PC Rathbone shows no malice towards Moat and that is a good thing. Showing no malice and not being filled with bitterness and resentment is a good thing. I have no idea whether PC Rathbone is a Christian or not. He's showing no malice and isn't filled with bitterness and resentment, so he's certainly behaving like a Christian. He hasn't actually said anywhere that he's a Christian but that might just be him being modest. Being modest is another thing that Christians do a lot. PC Rathbone is also a family man, which Christians tend to be as well. So I'd say there's a good chance he's probably a Christian, what with all this Christian behaviour.
