Default Yet more crime.

My nieces' son in law is a self employed plumber with 3 kids. He has had is van broken into and tools stolen 2/3 times,last night someone stole the van itself.
After phoning police to report the theft no response from them other than been given a crime number.
He is young lad who works 7 days a week and now he has no means of earning an income. This Town (Country) is becoming lawless.

Scum. Oxygen thieves. Pondlife. Knuckle draggers.....and any other insults I can think of. I feel for the guy, tries so hard, faces all that hassle.
I hope he bounces back very quickly.

A hidden GSM remote wired to some hidden air horns, in the event of theft, send a text to the unit, hopefully frighten the barstewards to death.

(I was going to say wire it to an internal screenwash system filled with hydrochloric acid - but that would be really bad wouldn't it)

Terrible. I agree with Bororover - these people (I use the term loosely) should be strung up.

And that is what will happen if we continue into this lawless decline.

People will take the law into their own hands.

Only the other day I was reading of a guy who killed a thief from the “Travelling Community” who had broken into his home and went for him with a screwdriver. The house owner had a bigger knife tho’ - and used it.

Now I do not condone knife crime in any way but the Judge said it was Lawful Killing given the circumstances and the scum thief’s history.

The report was about the guy having to be given a new identity due to the likelihood of reprisals by the scum thief’s family and friends.

What cost that?

Why not deal with the scum that cause the problem?

These scum should be made to do hard labour for several years if they catch them. This mamby pamby approach they seem to have with them is obviously not working.

Once they have done there time send them to do work in a 3rd world country and then they will see what life is about. They will have to work at the local hourly rate or they wont get there ticket to come home.

So many of them get off with a caution or a few weeks in a soft prison and they treat it like a holiday.

A workmate had his house broken into, he caught the intruder and he detained him while his wife rung the police, apparently they were busy so would be a while . After his wife rung them again and saying she had been attacked they arrived 10 mins later. The police took the intruder away and he claimed he had been attacked. When Tony rung the police the following day the intruder had been released because there was a lack of evidence. What do the police need?

Is it me?

Really sad to hear of van thefts, the lowest of the low stealing someones tools. Here in Exmouth, a relatively quiet town it's a real problem. No industry, just leisure jobs sees many 'one man bands' serving the community.

Very sorry to hear about this.

One of my sons is a builder and tries to keep as much stuff securely locked away as much as he can but the tools of the trade are big, heavy and carting them in and out of the van every night is a time consuming pain.

He's had the van tyres slashed though .

Many threads/posts about similar incidents.

If the "punishment" is meant to be a deterrent them it obviously isn't working and needs a radical review.

The lack of Police numbers, the "Human Rights" brigade, the "it's always someone else's fault" excuses and what appears to be lax sentencing don't help. As does the perceived multi £million tax fiddling etc. by big companies. Well...they do it......

Hope he gets back on his feet again very soon.

Andy.

Our local rag is full of people going mad at the state of lawlessness in the area.
The ne'er do wells don't even bother to thieve under the cover of darkness any more because they know PC Plod isn't going to turn up any time soon.



It makes you wonder if I'd been better off and saved my money & not installed a CCTV system because the police aren't going to follow any crimes up.


They literally have free reign to do what the heck they like in this day & age.
