  1. that sounds like another place in thanet thats to be avoided , there wont be anywhere left in thanet soon thats safe to enter

  2. no – its another stabbing , no paranoia involved – just good old fashioned common sense . this area is crime ridden , wake up !

  3. I don’t think Real World is being paranoid he has a point a lot of people in Thanet are scared to go out at certain times of the day or night in areas where a lot of people have been assaulted I don’t blame them as I know how it must feel to them as having been stabbed myself back in 76 I was 20 and was worried about going out and for weeks after I kept looking around to make sure I was clear from anyone I didn’t know, he definitely is not paranoid, it is getting bad you only have to look at what has been reported here this year. And yet this is still no where near as bad as other towns and cities I’m lucky I got over the fear and everything that went with it but you don’t know how others feel especially if they have been assaulted in anyway.

  4. I think you should all stop jumping to conclusions about me, conclusions which as far as I can remember are, in fact, wrong.
