  1. Try this conversation. It's ok because due to the dance studio we have to be crb checked and H&S rubbish there are cctv cameras installed all over, we can't broadcast it as that is part of the insurance requirements. The police are currently looking through things and because no one is hurt it is not a priority, but everything will be there, eventually.....hope you don't mind them looking at you feeding etc. as a process of elimination....obviously. If they squirm and um and arr.... See where I'm going?
  2. I'm not a copper but have been arrested previously and many years ago I must add. My experience was sometimes cuffed and explanations given for which I accepted but objected at the time. I was a bit of a naughty boy and would suggest CUFF, until you find out different. I am a lot older now and not capable of being an arse because it's not worth it. Cuff them, it is better to make a mistake/error by cuffing than NOT to cuff. Look after number one! If in doubt I would say cuff, If they are innocent but volatile you have still looked after yourself, that is the main thing. Present days are different but in the 80's I have had many a scutch from a copper, off the record of course and all denial etc. To be fair I would have been doing life in instalments if it wasn't for the South Yorkshire police at the time. I remember names and numbers but will not put it on here. I am now a full law abiding citizen and although I regret some things I've done, without them I wouldn't be where I am now. Crack on officer and don't take crap!
  3. As above....and STOP using drugs!!!! Even 'recreational drugs' because once you have taken any drug the effects are beyond your control.
  4. How do you work out he was going to beat you up??? You wasn't threatened at all, it was a suggestion followed by his description of you (although I've never seen anyone resembling a little prick). Pricks can be determined in a few ways though, rose prick, injection prick, feel a prick, I'd suggest having a word during daytime hours (obviously out of study time) and asking if he has a problem with his alarm or is there someone actually targeting him. Go and talk to him in a neighbourly way and introduce yourself. You never know he might end up your best mate
  5. As far as I am aware - pavements are for pedestrians and the road is for vehicles. A pet hate of mine is illegal and/or inconsiderate parking.
  6. I would like to watch this and wish you every success in your venture. Regards to having a can or two after the event I would suspect that it's along the same lines of a stereotypical Sunday (for me anyway). Bit of weeding/grass cutting, wash the car, few cans (more if wife not looking) and general chatting with neighbours doing similar. I have access to a vehicle as it's on my drive but I think the law in that respect is something along the lines of 'intent to drive'. Regards the driving after alcohol, I'm sure I have seen a TV documentary showing drivers on a track (closed to public) where they completed the course before and after consumption. I would hazard a guess that there would/could be an insurance clause stating all people involved would do so at their own risk etc. I have no legal expertise and am just a lowly lorry driver with respect for the law as well as you. I do like entertainment though and again wish you well (link please when done).
  7. Monklife is full of it in my opinion. I have trained in martial arts and NO BULLY would make me move house. I have read this thread and waited patiently for the outcome....zilch. Wing Chun ???? I did Shotokan and Wado ryu and gained purple 3 and brown 2 belts respective. I didn't want to achieve black as in my opinion it is just a status symbol (and I couldn't afford it ). I don't like to blow my own trumpet, (although I think I am )but anyone putting me or my family through what monklife has described would put me straight at the front and he either stops, or he's going to get back some of what he's offering!!!!!! I would win physically without a doubt. I would also try to nip it in the bud before violence and my optical physique would help that. I think it's a made up story of a fantasy in his head. If he is so highly trained (blindfolded or not ) it would be sorted by now, some type of keyboard ninja comes to mind!
  8. Verbal Cannabis Warning

    I was once caught in possession of some cucumbers but was let off with a warning and a stern talking to.
  9. Offensive Police Slurs

    I'n not a copper or police officer but if I was I would find the word 'pig' offensive! Also, however did the the word 'pig' become associated with the police??
  10. Gripper! That is the longest way to describe 'just been nosy, and want to know' I have ever read. Like it
  11. Your version is the only one we have. There are always 2 accounts for ANY situation. The way you are protesting leaves me in 2 positions. You are either guilty and trying to cover it up. Or you are innocent and milking it for some compensation. My initial response was get over it and move on. It still stands.
  12. Go to the pub, get pissed slag the police off to anyone who will listen then carry on with tomorrow. Yesterday has gone, just move on and don't waste tax payers money. You wasn't hurt or disfigured, you have no life threatening injuries, no long term real anxieties by your account a mistake was made, possibly legitimate but a mistake. You suffer anxiety but dwell on causing yourself more by choice baffled is me - crack on and enjoy.
  13. Oh.............just move on and carry on with your life. Get over it rubbish happens. You are causing yourself MORE anxiety whittling about something you can't change. It's gone and in the past learn from it if you can (speaking from experience) and consider the glorious future.
  14. Someone made a mistake. Are you involved with the police in any way? This experience has been the most traumatic experience of my life. I'm not involved with the police but have been in my younger wild days. I can empathise and speak from experience regarding your grievance, Many years ago there was a fight outside the pub I was in, nothing to do with me at all and I just left to walk home. 2 lads had a go at me, I said none of my business and continued walking. 1 decided to hit me. I retaliated and his mate then joined in to give me a good hiding. Unfortunately for them they picked the wrong one. Result.......2 in hospital and me getting arrested for assault. About 3 months ish (on bail) I was called to police station and attended. Witness account and 1 attacker statement shown my innocence and I was informed that no charges would be made. Yes 3 months of hell but deep down I knew I was innocent - self defence. (I was spoken to about excessive force but that must have been overlooked). Watch police programmes on television and actually SEE on tv criminals commit crime but get away because of 'insufficient evidence' bloody hell someone else must have made a mistake there and got away with it!!!
