  1. Are these the same three as was arrested last year doing same thing? Makes you wonder how many idiot thugs are living over there with nothing better to do then attack people in their own. How brave they must feel ganging up on others.

  2. For the good of the whole town center somebody needs to burn down the bench in front of KFC. All the noted low life kids sit there and use WiFi from KFC.

  3. I would bet money that this is not the first time these aholes have done something like this and it won’t be the last time. It’s also high time that the parents of these feral thugs are made accountable for their shitty parenting. Perhaps if the parents shouldered some of the blame and punishment they might actually take charge of their feral kids rather than blaming everyone else for their shortcomings.

    Anyone who can stamp on someone’s face when they are Lying on the ground is a danger to the rest of society and deserves to spend years behind bars. The criminal justice system is failing the victims of crime and the only ones gaining are the perpetrators of crime who are treated with kid gloves by liberal courts.

    Violent thugs need to be caged. Written letters of apology are not adequate forms of punishment for violent thugs. The victims of crime deserve to feel safe and be able to walk the streets knowing their attackers are behind bars and unable to hurt anyone else. Can you imagine being a victim of crime seeing your attackers escape a jail sentence and then seeing them on the street laughing and joking like nothing happened while you are forced to live in fear because of their violent tendencies.

    The liberals who claim prison is unfair on the families of criminals are right but at the end of the day it’s their partners or relatives that are the criminals causing misery to the rest of society and these aholes will never learn responsibility and accountability all the while they are treated with kid gloves.

  4. Makes me crease how bare heads gotta beat up one man lol it’s Dom FFS he’s an alcoholic who doesn’t bother anyone absolutely disgusting bunch OF PUSSYS

  5. This is typical and when I was in town the chicken police officer avoided the gang hanging around. What is the point of the police are too scared to tackle this. And the liar of a conservative Craig mckinlay has said to report these things…what’s the point! Why doesn’t anybody seem to care about sorting out rubbish town out!!

    • If you read the article, you’ll see that 3 people have been arrested for this offence. The police seem to be taking it seriously.

  6. At last another 3 of these thugs are taken of the street for the night. Unfortunately they will be back again tomorrow, probably laughing about their night away in a cell. The poor LD chap who got beaten up and stamped on while walking to his friends place last April is walking about in fear each time he goes out because the police didn’t find the culprits. It is a cruel world out there but these bully thugs make it so much harder for many victims. I hope these ones are made to pay!

  7. Maintaining law and order is the responsibility of the police. The Chief Constable for Kent ought to be asked to explain what they are doing to keep people safe in Ramsgate.

  8. It starts in the home; children who are taught to disrespect authority and are endowed with a sense of self-entitlement. It continues in the schools; youths who are taught that nobody can touch them; that there are no meaningful consequences for violent and abusive conduct; that appalling behaviour gains you the respect of your peers. It matures in society; yobs who treat those around them with contempt, regard the law as an impediment to their human rights and believe that violence and crime are the way to success. It ends in disaster; a society where those who adopt civilised values end up cowering behind locked doors, whilst feral gangs rule the streets which hard-working, honest citizens paid for.

  9. “. It continues in the schools; youths who are taught that nobody can touch them; that there are no meaningful consequences for violent and abusive conduct” …
    Not in any if the schools I’ve experienced, as pupil, parent and teacher.
    You are painting a completely inaccurate picture of our society and its young people. And neither my wife nor I is cowering behind our locked door, afraid to go out.

  10. Hopefully the victim will make a full recovery,all the best fella.
    The 3 thugs need to be named & shamed,if their below the age of legal responsibility then their guardian/parent etc should be named.The existing law’s need changing,thugs and their guardians/parent need to take ownership of their actions.
    Hopefully persons will be sentenced for this incident,A Nhs bean counter could also work out the cost of treating the victim & ongoing treatment.
    That cost could be added as an additional fine (pay back) to any sentence ordered by a magistrate or judge.
    If the assailants have no funds,then the guardian/parent can help out.

    • “For GBH, if you are convicted under section 20 in a Crown Court, the maximum penalty is five years’ imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine. If you are convicted in a Magistrates’ Court, the maximum penalty is six months behind bars and/or a fine.”

  11. Why is it the police arrest the scum in our society and JPs judges put them straight back onto our streets, gangs now run towns!! There’s no respect or in life anymore,no better than pack animals
