      • Having had an elderly tenant who was mugged by a despicable scrote several years ago, which resulted in the tenant being thrown to the ground and badly shaken ,lost all their self confidence and turned into nigh on a nervous wreck. It completely ruined their life. There was next to no support from police or social services.
        I’d only say that Richards comment goes nowhere near far enough for those that behave in such a fashion. But hey, the little darling was probably desperate to feed a habit over which they had no control and so we should have great pity for them. Sorry not me.

  1. The police will usually include the skin colour of a suspect if they are white. Strange world we live in now where the police are too afraid to release an accurate description of a suspect because they don’t want to be seen as as racist.

    • I worked in the Cayman islands in 1999, when there they had their first armed home invasion where the homeowners were beaten and robbed.
      The descriptions of the perpetrators was extremely detailed , hair styles , hair colour, accent and diction , clothing , just about everything except for the skin colour / ethnicity . Which was odd because the description left little doubt to the reader as to what this would be and if it were different would have made the perpetrators pretty much unique on the island and so easily identified.
      The same lunacy has arrived on our shores.
