This isn’t Gypsies

Norfolk Police let a gang of travellers go on the rampage because they failed to grasp the “community tensions”, leaving a seaside town in lockdown, a review has found.

Shops, bars and restaurants were forced to close on one of the busiest weekends of the year after 23 motorhomes parked up during Cromer’s August carnival this year.

In total, 37 crimes were reported to police including a rape, threatening behaviour and thefts. One pub landlord was pulled over the counter as some of the travellers demanded money. Meanwhile, an Indian restaurant was “ambushed” as around 40 people stormed in stealing alcohol and upsetting diners.

This is a rather different grouping, isn’t it?

  1. Even the bullshit excuses are bullshit.

    WTF do “community tensions” have to do with anything?

    Call me old-fashioned but the plan used to be :trouble happens–then you call the cops to sort it out.

    Again WTF (the “W” stands for why this time) were this gang of scum not locked up in Lowestoft?.

    Why were there arrests only for the PC rape charge and clear assaults and attempts to demand money with menaces were ignored.

    Folk need to start defending themselves again. And that clearly includes dealing it out to monkey suits who try to prevent them defending themselves.

    The po-lice were always about protecting the human livestock farmers of the state but they used at least to make some effort on behalf of those who pay their wages. If all they do now is tell each other about the movements of 40 Thieves style groups about the UK( presumably so their suits don’t wander into harm’s way by accident) then they are done and it is time we were rid of them and their pensions.

  2. “Norfolk Police had been told by Suffolk Police that the group of travellers had left Lowestoft after causing some disruption there and were heading to Norfolk, the report said.

    This information was “not recorded on official systems” in a way that allowed it to reach key people within Norfolk Police, and resulted in senior officers making initial decisions without knowing all of the facts.”

    Who will be sacked for this failure, I wonder?

  3. If I set up a Twitter account with a pikey traveller bio, presumably I can write whatever I want with impunity.

  4. Be interested to know if any of these incidents ever happen in areas where the RoP are in the majority and, if so, what happens and what the cops do.

    Interesting but rather academic question – “travellers” are unlikely to descend on places like Bradford.

  6. Bloody pikeys don’t know the rules in Norfolk, do they? Don’t rape a stranger, screw your sister, mother (or daughter) and then it’s ‘normal’ for Norfolk …

    Plod sacked for being incompetent – LMFAO (BTW, I realise it was rhetorical).

    If we were to sack all the useless fuckers ‘working’ for the State teat we’d have no one left to fleece our taxes.

  8. Norfolk Police let a gang of travellers go on the rampage because they failed to grasp the “community tensions”

    “Community tensions”. The phrase used when one normal, peaceful community is preyed on by a violent depraved one, and the predator is protected by the State.

    Anyway, the police were perfectly aware of the ‘tensions’ and the cause, which is why they did nothing.

    This information was “not recorded on official systems” in a way that allowed it to reach key people within Norfolk Police

    Use a fucking telephone. Are telephones not considered “official systems”?

    Classic public sector behaviour. For some reason they can get away with saying “never saw it, Guv” because it wasn’t presented on Form 114b with all the boxes properly filled in. Meanwhile private businesses are held to a very different standard of behaviour.

  9. Next time the police will respond more robustly by painting their fingernails to raise awareness of Cromer, and paint tears on their cheeks to indicate how “their thoughts and prayers are with the people of Cromer at this difficult time”.

  10. Speaking of violent outsiders descending on other communities, I see Owen Jones is bitching about the result of his non-terrorist twin sister attending a violent G20 protest in Hamburg.

    This resulted in her detention by Plod Deutschland, and ultimately presumably acting on info on this being passed on Police Scotland detained her at Edinburgh Airport for 4 hours, questioned her about her political beliefs and those of Owen, accessed her laptop and caused her to miss her flight out.

    Oh Karma, how sweet you can be sometimes.

  11. I love it when people who want State control of every aspect of life moan and bitch when the State barges into their life.

  12. About 15 years ago a plod said to my wife that he was disappointed to learn that a gang of new age hippy travellers had taken up theft and extortion: it was his first experience of that. Usually their standard of behaviour was far better than that of … whatever dismissive term he used for the usual brigands.

  13. Next time you woggies scratch your heads as to why ‘Mericans are so passionate about retaining the right to keep and bear arms for their own defense, remember this story.

    Where I come from, 37 people going on a rampage means at least 1 of the 37 is going to get his ass shot. The last rampage we had here in Central Ohio was last year, when a Somali-American college student at Ohio State decided to start attacking folks with a knife.

    He was shot dead by a citizen before the police could respond.

  14. And to make it worse, your police appear to be a pack of politically correct pussies. Saw pictures of your manly men police sporting nail polish and whatnot… Showing empathy. Or whatever. Boy, if that doesn’t strike fear in the hearts of criminals and terrorists everywhere, I don’t know what will.

  15. @ Dennis
    If anyone tried that over here he would arrested and charged with murder/manslaughter. Some poor elderly guy shot at one of the habitual criminals (with multiple convictions) who broke into his farmhouse and spent significant time in jail before he was released on appeal against his conviction.

  16. Social Justice Warrior

    Strangely enough, all the reports at the time said the Ohio State guy was shot dead by an on-duty policeman.

  17. “Interesting but rather academic question – “travellers” are unlikely to descend on places like Bradford”

    Wrong, the Bradford Metropolitan District Council love Pikies…they give them an excuse to let the RoPers off x

  18. Bloke in Costa Rica

    There’s nothing a pack of marauding pikeys can do that zip ties round the door handles and a few gallons of unleaded under the caravan at 3am won’t fix.

  19. Strangely enough, all the reports at the time said the Ohio State guy was shot dead by an on-duty policeman.

    Not so strangely enough, you’ve got it wrong. He was an off-duty, out-of-uniform Ohio State University policeman who happened to be on campus and (concealed) carrying a handgun.

  20. If anyone tried that over here he would arrested and charged with murder/manslaughter.

    Well, that’s the price you pay to be ‘civilized’.

  21. I wonder if the Government has added up all the costs of the wonderful diversity Travellers bring to Britain. Costs such as the local parish council having to surround the village green and cricket pitch with the sort of infrastructure the Germans put around the beaches near Calais to deter tanks. All of this to stop the bastards driving their vehicles onto it, camping there and shitting on a good length.

  22. Dennis–Your own military have also been publicly humiliated by being forced to parade in –red I believe–high heels to show sympathy/solidarity with hazed homos or force-felt fems or some such cockrot.

    Operative word being “forced”. (And you no doubt noted in the video that there were those who refused outright.)

    Don’t recall seeing that word associated with the police pretties and their painted nails.

  23. “Your own military have also been publicly humiliated by being forced to parade in –red I believe–high heels . . .”

    You have no subtlety. This was brilliant.

    Imagine: a US convoy comes upon a group of ISIS. The soldiers jump out of their vehicles, weapons at the ready, pink high heels gleaming in the sun.

    The ISIS fighters stop, staring at the shoes. First, a small titter, then chuckles, then finally stomach-grabbing whoops of laughter leave them all prostate on the ground.

    With a stomp of each foot, the heels are broken off, the US soldiers take the ISIS crew captive, and a threat is eliminated without loss of US life.

    Win-win.

    (P.S. Strong-arm crime only works when the state mandates that physical strength is the ultimate weapon, leaving everyone at the mercy of the strong and numerous. This is why guns have always been called “equalizers”. Equality is good.)

  24. Social Justice Warrior

    Not so strangely enough, you’ve got it wrong. He was an off-duty, out-of-uniform Ohio State University policeman who happened to be on campus.

    No, you’re wrong. Check any report.

  25. bobby b: …the US soldiers take the ISIS crew captive, and a threat is eliminated without loss of US life.

    Win-win.

    Well it’s a school of thought, I suppose, but not universally accepted as the best conceivable outcome.

  26. SJW –

    Did you actually read the article you linked to? I said he was an OSU policeman. And it sure as shit doesn’t contradict what I said.

    The Columbus news outlets reported he’d gone off duty and checked the gas leak report as a favor to his department as he was leaving the campus.

    And why the fuck are you trotting out Cleveland news link for something that happened in Columbus? Or don’t you know that Ohio State is in Columbus and isn’t in Cleveland?

    Give it a rest and quit while your behind. Again.

  27. SJW –

    Mind telling the chances any British cop would have been armed – on or off duty – if someone started stabbing people in a London street? Would one unarmed, on duty officer been enough to handle the problem?

    ‘Mericans arm themselves, arm their police, and shit gets handled. It’s one of the reasons you don’t have Pakis molesting kids by the hundreds in Kansas City or Abs throwing acid on people in Atlanta.

  28. Dennis–I don’t know if any coppers told them to fuck off–nor do you. Any who did would likely get little publicity for having done so. In any case most of your lot DID capitulate to their own humiliation so you are hardly able to claim some sort of high ground.

    bobby b–A colourful scenario. But I think this is a better approach:

  29. Dennis, I feel safer when in America than I do in my own country, the thought of being surrounded by armed citizens gives me some comfort, most here are beaten down and accepting of being neutered.

  30. Social Justice Warrior

    DtP: “He was shot dead by a citizen before the police could respond.”
    SJW: No, he “was shot dead by an on-duty policeman”
    DtP: Yes, it was a policeman, but he was off duty, so you’re wrong
    SJW: [links to a report that “there was a nearby gas leak that the officer had gone to investigate”]
    DtP: No, according to some unspecified report he’d just gone off duty. So you’re wrong. Also, you should have linked to a different report saying the same thing.

    So there you have it. DtP’s “civilian before the police could respond” turns out to be a well-trained policeman who was there on police business.

    Thud: “I feel safer when in America than I do in my own country, the thought of being surrounded by armed citizens gives me some comfort”

    The drawback being that the armed citizens may be about to shoot you.

  31. The drawback being that the armed citizens may be about to shoot you.

    Here’s a bit of advice then SJW, don’t go waving a big knife around on the streets or a university campus.

    At the risk of being pendantic, an off-duty policeman is a civilian.

  32. Social Justice Warrior

    Thanks for the advice HC. If you don’t want to get shot dead at random, you’ll also find it safer not to attend country music concerts, or work in a supermarket or a hospital or at UPS. Or visit a library, or wait at baggage reclaim…

  33. John77,

    Tony Martin left the jury convinced, beyond reasonable doubt, that he was clearly intending to ambush and kill intruders, and was caught lying about it in his testimony (unless you believe several blasts of shotgun pellets can make neat formation turns down stairs and around corners).

    If you actually own your firearm or shotgun legally (instead of having “found” and kept an unregistered Section 1 weapon with no secure storage…) use it to defend your home, but stop shooting once the intruders are clearly fleeing (doesn’t mean you can’t reload and cover them in case they turn around…) not only will you not be charged (let alone convicted) but the would-be burglars will, when attempting to sue for their pain and distress at being shot, be referred to the answer given in Arkell vs. Pressdram.

  34. Bloke in Costa Rica

    Why is ambushing and killing feral pikeys against the law? I would have thought it qualified as good social hygiene. A strong case can be made that however many pikeys are currently being shot, it falls far short of the ideal number.
