  1. RIP poor fella did not ask to die like this
    We need police officers on our beat during the night like they used to be.

    Cliftonville is in mourning

  2. Yeh, let’s spend loads of money policing an area which is more suited to armed force than our bobbies. Bloody Liberal twits are the reason we’re in a mess. I want more police catching burglars not patrolling at 2 o’clock in the morning in case the low life’s decide to kill each other. I hope your not offended Rebecca, but it’s time to wake up and recognise why these incidents are happening. This area has been left to degenerate by the influx of different cultures that were never going to get on. Idiot council, idiot government.

    • I think it was the Tories who cut our police force by 20,000, not liberal twists.
      It was the Tory government that slashed funding for youth work, not liberal twits.
      It was the Tories who have failed to introduce effective border controls, not liberal twits.
      And the offence was committed in someone’s house, between two people known to each other.

    • You’ve hit the nail right on the head there. It’s a know go area after dark. Why should the street bobbies be put at risk?
