  1. Well said, Brochbuilder, and with dignity too. I always like to see both sides of an argument laid down. We should never be closed off to other opinions and ideas. It is up to us, as individuals, to read and hear others arguments and decide whether we feel them relevant or indeed logical. Only two things in Human existence have created change... ...Talking and conflict, unfortunately most change has been created through conflict. I'd always prefer talking, personally with fighting as a very last resort. I personally don't see the need to arm ALL police officers, but agree that a few wel
  2. Brochbuilder you seem to live in a lovely insulated little world, I hope it continues that way for you. However those who live in the real world can vouch that MOST police treat those their meant to defend with contempt. When a simple warning would suffice, these officers bring the full weight of the law down on people, talk and treat them like dirt. This just makes people turn against the police, not just the people directly involved but family and friends too. This in turn looses the respect of the public and erodes our faith in the system set up to "Help us". I will concede that there are
  3. I have always believed in recycling. Growing up, in the Midlands, most people were into the oldest form of recycling- scrap metal. There was also the bottle deposits, take a pop bottle back and you got 10p. I remember me and my mates going along the canals and parks etc picking up empty pop bottles to get the deposits on them. The point being we were rewarded for recycling not punished for not recycling. A lot of the environmentalist attitude is just smug people wanting to feel like they are doing something to save the planet. Years ago there was a program on channel 4 or 5 about this whole is
  4. I remember my friends in the late seventies early eighties being beaten up by the Polices' "special units" and suppose as such always feel uncomfortable with armed police. Also, growing up in run down areas, remember the hostility of police towards us and their sheer lack of interest if a crime had been committed. Life's experiences have great bearing on how we view things. However I fully support specially trained and vetted police officers carrying arms of any type required to level the playing field with those they may face. On saying that I know of several times police officers have "
  5. The Police hate anyone showing them up to be the useless, redundant item they have become, as this gent has done. No doubt if the burglars had got away the police wouldn't have even tried to find them. On the flip side the police do an extremely good job of prosecuting motorists for petty offences. Where is this countries priorities? If ANYONE enters your house without invite or just reason then they should accept the potential outcomes! Once again the police arrest and persecute those who only defend themselves or are in the right morally.
  6. Spoken like people who've never been to court. The simple fact is lots of people take the guilty plea rather than face the possibility of a more severe penalty even if they know they're innocent. Forget what you were told in the eyes of the law your guilty unless you can prove your innocent, a difficult task at best of times. As for solicitors all they want is there fee for appearing in court, I'd guess most couldn't care less if your innocent or guilty.
  7. The other point I'll make is that people usually plead guilty, not because they are, but that the "justice system" is set up in such a way as to get you to plead that way. If you plead guilty early you get a lighter sentence, and that sentence increases dramatically if you go not guilty but are found so later on. Even then be under no illusion that all the Sheriffs court is there for is to make money, NOT justice, and your sentence is made before you even walk into court. If you don't believe that you can find the PF and Sheriff regularly together discussing cases before they even enter the co
  8. Posted by windwalker: Would it be ok for police officers to shove annoying or drunk people over resulting in broken wrists? Somehow I don’t think so, and I’m sure the police have to deal with as many awkward individuals. Whilst it is regrettable that the wrong person ended in court, the law is there to protect us all. Like the officer who pushed over an innocent newspaper seller causing his death? Like the several officers who, illegally, used a restraint belt around a mentally disturbed suspect- leading to his death? There are many more cases like this and these are real instances of th
  9. Take it you're the person who owns the van? Yes people like this are the reason I got these accursed dash cams, people who drive like pilticks and then won't accept that they were driving bad-then make on that everyone else is at fault except them. And no I have never been a nark and don't particularly like the police, why do you think I posted this rather than go to the fuzz?! Be honest police or post, which would you prefer that I did? Me I'd rather someone post something, and if I was in the wrong, I could at least apologise and try to make right what I had done- learn from it even, rather
  10. I wasn't the one driving like a tw*!t. Think you'll find I was at a safe distance from the car in front and driving correctly for the conditions and traffic. If someone is so close you can read their front number plate in the semi-gloom of the pre-dawn I'd say that's too close even at 30mph let alone 50. By the way I'd rather place these antics on here, than be like the spineless goons who report everything to the cops. Mind you if being named and shamed hurts peoples sensibilities, then maybe reporting these things to the police with the dash cam footage is the other option.
  11. To the driver of OY64 BNE silver Caddy van, Thanks for driving so close to me at 0725 through Whiteness. Even in the gloom of early morning you were so close to me that I could read your number plate!!! Although the traffic in front was only doing 50mph, up Wormadale hill, what did you think you'd achieve by being so close? Even at 50mph you are still covering 22 meters per second. At the distance you were from me, if something had happened i.e. a car coming the other way on our side of the road, you wouldn't even have had time to process that something was wrong before going into the back of
  12. There is an organisation in America that extract money off business owners for little or no return. It's called the Mafia!!!
  13. I can only give answers to why I don't go to the street too often. These are: -Parking and driving around Da Street can be a nightmare. -All there seems to be are eateries and empty shops with a few shops in between. -Prices and choice e.g. Christmas went to get a weather station, for my meteorological mad wife, only found one shop with them in stock. However their price was £90 for a basic setup, got exactly the same make from sooth, but top of the range, for £70 delivered! On another note I know of two shops who shut their doors and I quote "Because of paying fees to a useless town cent
  14. I feel for you town. The last nine months found me unable to sleep properly, eat properly and think clearly. Like I said in an earlier post this has probably been my worst year in my life. All because two useless, dishonest police wanted to get Brownie points against the "bad man". Just like you I feel this isn't the polices' decision to make, they should approach all cases in an unbiased manner and merely pass that collected, truthful, evidence on to the PF. Hang in there though, I know it's tough. My suggestion is what I am thinking of, take all your hurt and pain then, be constructive
  15. How do you do a "Subject data request"? Suffererof1crankymofo. I'd be very interested in seeing the original paperwork of my case. Ghostrider is right, my one experience of a bad copper shouldn't jade my view of the numerous good ones. I have friends and relatives in the police force and hope and trust they behave better. But it does cause how do you know who you are dealing with until it's too late. So I simply have to mistrust them all, to try to be safe. Sukibind, I don't want to pick on you and appreciate someone inputting another side to the discussion, but you obviously have n
