Bring back the good old days when police could give them a kicking.
Never hurt us, we then had more respect for them

Dont you watch the news, the police do a lot more than give a good kicking, knowing they wont get prosecuted….. and that’s not all police, most are pretty nice guys and do a great job, but a few are not!

In America maybe but this is England and our coppers get ridiculed for putting restraints on too tight.
We’ve tried the nice approach and rewarding young offenders for years,
It doesn’t work.

You have got to make them so scared of going to Prison that they obey the rules

Just WAIT until the thousands of extra subsidised housing is filled to capacity. The Police ought to force the developers to provide a Police house on ever street corner.

They are going to need it. This IS the good times, watch, learn and remember to vote those in ‘power’ out to slow the damage they are going to cause.

20 year old mug, brought up in an education system, that says no one loses, everyone takes part and no one gets any real punishment, just lots of chatting, finds out real life outside mummies house and the school is way, way different.

Police Dog didn’t take too long to find this low life. Hope it got some ‘strikes’ in. 20 years of age and assaulting people including a Police officer. Disgusting.

The little sod will only get a fine. And probably wont pay that . the law does not protect their own officers, attacking a police officer should be a mandatery prison sentence, as should attacking fireman, ambulance crews, nurses, doctors or anybody else serving the public.

Again as a direct result of lock down domestics will be the norm! Im just supprised its an Islander! You see I struggle with the perception that all the Island woes are down to mainlander’s yet its a fact that as soon as you come out of your island bubble that you will realize that the world has changed no matter where you live and reside!
