  1. good old ramsgate – it never fails to entertain , i wonder how certain people will put a spin on this one ? i wonder if anyone has thought of twinning ramsgate with detroit ?

  2. White Knighting is foolish-either the woman will side with her partner & make it a 2 on 1, or like here not even help out in any way-such as talking to the police.

  3. Unfortunately crime is on the rise in all areas of thanet .. we need more police .. more cctv .. and in some places cctv drones with facial recognition if this don’t work maybe night time curfews.. a mandatory national ID card would help .. after that only 1 option … bring in the Army close off all roads in and out of ramsgate.. fact during lockdown crime went down … FACT !

  4. Many years ago in Grange Road Broadstairs I came across a man slapping and punching a woman around the face he was sitting astride her on the floor, I got out of my car and biffed him a couple of times asking him how does he like it. I helped the lady up onto her feet asking her did she know him she replied “yes he’s my f***ing husband” she then hit me over the head with her hand bag causing
    a large cut on my head. The police also arrived but no action. Today it might be different but I would do the same again.

  5. As more and more people are disenfranchised from having a role in our society, especially younger men and the last decade of austerity, Brexit effects, proxy war effects, pandemic effects and most of all a very fascistic government killing the last vestiges of democracy in the UK, we are in for a very rough and tough time. Most of this was completely avoidable.

    • Yes Clare, this would have been avoidable if the parents had done a better job at parenting. Poor parenting needs to be called out and the parents punished.

  6. Violence against anyone is never justified. Being disenfranchised is no explanation for serious violent crime.

    I hope they catch him and I’m sorry the guy who helped out was injured. He may have saved that woman’s life.

  7. It’s a reminder to mind your own business. We live in an equal world apparently where men and women are the same. What if she hit him first, if a bird hits you do you not have the right to put her lights out. Call the old bill, let them deal with it. If someone got in my way in that situation God help em.
