Violent Ramsgate in the news so often now. Why all these assaults on people? I know it happens all over but more often than not it’s Ramsgate that makes the news.
To Mr Kent Resident,
There will normally be a few assaults when alcohol and the seaside are involved, especially where people gather – pubs, wine bars, rail stations and bus stops.
The reason you may surmise there to be more assaults in Ramsgate is that the local online news-sheet reports it – thus bringing it to your attention. Likely, as not, there are an equal number, or more, assaults in Westminster or Kensington on the same night but why would The Isle of Thanet News report that ? It’s hardly relevant to the the readers of the Isle of Thanet Trumpet ?
Its usually Ramsgate because the local police and Thanet Council prioritise their resources to the rest of Thanet and treat Ramsgate like a second class citizen.
Dear Kent Resident,
It may appear to you there are ,any assaults on people in Ramsgate – and perhaps there are. But the Isle of Thanet News focuses on various localities because it is a local news gathering site.
There may be more, or less assaults in Westminster and/or Kensington. But it is fairly pointless for Isle of Thanet News to post stories about those, rather in the same way as it is pointless to post stories about assaults in Lerwick (Shetland isles) or Timbuctoo !
