  1. Lock the scum up. There is no defence for carrying a shotgun or knives in Thanet. Prison might no rehabilitate these idiots but the streets are safer for the rest of us while they are banged up.

  2. Thanks to the person who first reported a possible knife being seen and second report of the gun brave citizens of thanet and well done to the police for quick arrests as concerned writes hopefully they will be locked up for some time so our residents can feel safe. Well done everyone involved.
