  1. what a dangerous place we live in , even women are robbing people at knifepoint . its fast becomming lawless in thanet

  2. A female culprit and a male victim!The media only bang on about males being the culprits,when it comes to domestic and street violence.

    • Mate the biggest fight or attack I’ve seen in Thanet was a group of at least ten girls on one kicking the victim in the head like a football not one mention of that in any news or local SoClcail media

  3. A white woman it appears.
    Would the ethnicity be mentioned if she hadn’t been (white)?
    I would like to think so but I fear I would be waiting a long time for that.
    Other than that, what a state Thanet and the rest of the country is getting in to. More Police is the answer, an oft quoted cry I know but so damned true, that and more appropriate sentencing when these scumbags are brought to court. Doesn’t affect the rich very much, does it MPs?

  4. The bus has cctv cameras pointing in all directions, was a knife actually seen ? Was the incident reported straight away ?

    So much crime goes unreported as they know nothing will be done, so many criminals think they are doing nothing wrong as they have never had their collar felt.

    Were not doomed,yet

  5. A light hearted dig at mysogynist comments to shine a light on men whom spout nonsense like women are bad drivers…oh well.

  6. A couple of things crossed my mind reading this article. If with todays PC in place, how can the article say ……..white woman man ??? so we have racist remarks by the naming of the alleged offender, we have sexist/woke, gender discrimination, woman and man… why are there not a crowd of objectors pradading up and down the street about this news article?
