A local scumbug around here did 3 cars last weekend put the drivers or passenger front windows in. I have been informed he was on a bike and was merrily going down the street deciding which cars to do.

My wife's, new to her Alhambra, got its front drivers window done in. Glass everywhere a few pounds stolen and my Ipod with all my music nicked, Nothing on show at all. Parked under a frigging new while led lampost.

£95 excess for a new window.

Not the 1st time a little scrud has done cars around here over the past months.

Police response absolutely nothing apart from an email back asking me if I wanted emotional support being a victim of crime

The little scrote should be in need of support after having his knees stamped on.

Sorry, but a flogging is not adequate. They should be made to pay for the damage and then have to do other recompense to the owner. The law these days is totally useless. The only law is when/ if you catch them, you knock seven bells out of them. Just hope I never see anything like that going on because I am afraid I could not turn the other cheek. People are so afraid these days to take action because they might get done for breaking someone’s neck. Hope I never have to take ‘defensive’ action on the swines.

The latest thing in our area is car jacking


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBvC0QzbcFA


This happened several days ago, a few hundred yards up the road from where i live.
Think we are on 32 attempted jackings since start of March.


The scumbags have no fear of punishment - three people were arrested recently but let out again while investigations continue - again lads on a scooter with a knife...probably same ones in video above.


I put cctv up last year and within 3 days had filmed a kid getting into our Focus at half past midnight one saturday night...

I couldn't care less ... whatever is cheapest and ultimately safest for decent society.

In the late '80s, a friend of mine captured a scrote in the act breaking into his car.

The idiot piped up with "the police won't do a thing", quite the wrong thing to say to an 18 stone 6'3" HGV fitter, who promptly smacked the bloke silly, laid his legs over the end of the kerb, before stamping on each shin, then throwing the hapless villain into the boot of the car he'd been only two minutes earlier rifling through, before finally driving him out onto the moors and dumping him.

I'm fairly confident that particular waste of space didn't do it again though

Guess that's one way to get your point over.---


Over here in France it's legal to buy and carry Pepper spray. Would have helped that guy in the video if it was legal in Britain.

Nowadays the criminal would press charges for abduction and get a free holiday out of it. Totally deserved of course because how dare you keep him from doing his hard work.... Europe and Britain (while we're still waiting for #Brexit) have become pathetic.
