Call the Cops or Not ?

Postby ATTMFKH » Fri May 13, 2016 10:11 am

Views please.

One of my sons mates got proper jumped last week by 5 guys, head stamps the lot, and he tells me there is a group going looking for revenge this evening to a neighbouring town.

Having watched 24 hours in Police Custody last night where one punch ended up with a guy losing his life and the other guy getting convicted of manslaughter, got me thinking whether or not I should let the Grunters know that there may be trouble tonight.

I am not a fan of the Police, nor am I using any names or ‘grassing’ anyone up – all I would hope is that the cops maybe give a higher profile presence in the areas, that could potentially stop some fairly serious intent.

What do you reckon ?

Shit man. We had exactly this sort of bullshit when I was growing up in the fens in the 80's. Small town lads all up for knocking shit out of the next town along. Most of the time noone was seriously hurt but there were exceptions. Its a tough one to call. I would guess the cops won't do an awful lot anyway. I doubt they would draft extra manpower in just cos of one phonecall saying there might be some trouble. And it also depends on the town - how big it is - if there is normally trouble there etc. If it is the Busys are well used to it. I would tell your son to steer well clear of it for sure.

Did the Police get involved when your lad got a kicking? If so a call could just remind them of it and just tell them to be aware there is a possibility of repercussions.

JayP - it wasn't my lad who got pasted. He is working tonight anyway and is not into all that punchy punchy stuff anyway - even though he is 6'5" and built like a brick shit-house.

I'm thinking if the cops are particularly vigilant (but I suppose that is what they do anyway)then they may pay closer attention to a couple of cars 5 up cruising about.

mmmmmmmmmmm ?

Isn't there some anonymous messaging service or website you can just let it be known, then at least you've relieved your worry and done something about it?
