£200k well spent I see. Surely they budgeted for a video tape when they installed the system?

^^ It may well turn out to be well spent, the entire incident may well have been captured crystal clear, but it would be normal for the police to try to amass as much evidence as possible before proceeding surely?

^^ I'm aware of Police procedure when it comes to gathering evidence. Surely though, It would've been better to have stopped this assault becoming a serious assault by alerting the on duty officers that cruise the street most weekends?
Then It would only have required a recording of the events and not a request for witnesses.

They have had cutbacks too, I'm sure. Maybe they don't employ someone to watch the cameras?

And maybe it was a quick serious assault, instead of a lengthy battle? I don't know, do you?

I hadn't thought of that. You're right, It would save on the leccy bill if they didn't switch on the monitors. :roll:

It went on for 30 minutes at least. I seen an argument begin and the wrestling match on the ground, plenty of people watching, didn't want to get involved so continued on to the Lounge. A few people came in over the next 20mins and were talking about it still going on, from what i gathered it was very serious, the guy assaulted was on crutches and had received a few volley's to the head.

Just to add, the guy on crutch(es) had been involved in an incident outside the Lounge about 20mins before we got there, the other guy involved with that wasn't the same guy at the Tattie shop.

I assume that all those with information have already passed it on to the police?
I know myself that theres been times in the past that I have walked past without informing the police but I have also (many years ago) wished that all witnesses had assisted with police inquiries when I was assaulted.

Another appeal in The Shetland Times today for witnesses's to come forward and contact the police with regards to this incident. I hope the people who have posted here who witnessed the events of that night have been in conact with the police. It takes a pretty sick/violent individual to do in a man on crutches!

Another incident yes - but if i mind right then the first cctv camera starts at the post office. The toon cctv system doesnt go as far as the boating club. So you cana really blame the cctv if it was never there in the first place.

However i am personally shocked that shetland has stooped so low as to follow the trends of the mainland. Sad day when someone is stabbed in the street and left there.. helpless. Shocking!

You've forgotten about the last knife attack.. About a year ago? Same area of town (down by Queens Hotel).

I know the Shetland rumour mill is in full force with this one and I understand that, but, for everyone reading the link, i'd just like to point out that the writer of the article has said the young man was 'stabbed', if you read carefully what the police statement says, its that they are looking for information on an incident which ".....a 23 year old man received an injury which resulted in hospital treatment." The police haven't actually said it was a stabbing.

This may not turn out to be what everyone is thinking it is, time will tell.
