  2. Falsely accused

    People make complaints and the police have to investigate. Some of those complaints are false but how does the officer know which those are without investigating? And how can it be proved that a complaint is false when it is one word against the other? You could have asked for the duty solicitor free of charge. You should have been told this before being interviewed, if not it was a breach of PACE. If you are innocent DO NOT accept a caution or any other 'warning'. DO NOT sign anything. You are most likely entitled to Legal Aid so would have free legal help if this did go to court, but I seriously doubt it ever will. The officer may come back and suggest this gets resolved by some sort of Community Resolution or Restorative Justice 'RJ'. DO NOT agree to any of this. Say you are totally innocent and you would like the neighbour to be prosecuted for attempting to pervert the course of justice, although as you said this is one word against the other that is unlikely to happen.

  3. Arrested for assault

    Sounds like a Community Resolution. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Arrested for assault

    Yes and yes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Arrest necessity

    APP on this states the escalation process for dealing with possession of cannabis. First time Cannabis Warning, second time PND, subsequent times arrest. Step outside of that if you wish but you must justify for decision to do so. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. A Mod will be along with a legal disclaimer, in the meantime I paraphrase - anonymous posters on a forum may or may not have legal knowledge. You may get some opinions that may be helpful or a load of tosh. Criminally you are pretty safe on private land as long as the public do not have access. Morally I question the mixing of alcohol and vehicles/ driving in any circumstances. Why do you feel the need to have alcohol to be enjoying yourself? If you become the success you wish you will be making an impression on viewers who will not be clear on you being on private land. Some may wish to emulate their hero Bill, who has a beer when fixing up his car then drives it. So they have a couple of Stella while changing the brake pads on their Corsa and drives off down the road. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. reasonable excuse?

    Quite right. I don't know why people get confused. 'Big knives' are not offensive weapons per se, hence the reason why the 1988 Act made it illegal to have them in public. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. reasonable excuse?

    No. I am saying that if a delivery driver was found to be in possession of a 4" locking blade then he would be suspected of possessing an article with a blade or that is sharply pointed. It would be up to him to show that he had it for use at work. It is not enough just to say you use it at work you to show why you need it. I don't see why you need a 4" blade to cut some sellotape. A police officer was recently charged with this offence for having a multi-tool on him that had a locking blade. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. reasonable excuse?

    Your looking at the wrong issue. You seem to be saying you have a 4" knife that you want an excuse to carry. You should be saying you have boxes you need to open so what is a suitable blade to cut packing tape with. A retractable Stanley knife seems suitable or a 1" non locking pen knife. If you don't need a 4" blade to solve your issue then you'd struggle that it is a reasonable excuse. Otherwise why not a machete or a samurai sword? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Why does a 2.9 inch blade not fit the bill? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Incident with neighbour.

    Rewrite your script so your first comment to Claire is, 'Hi Claire. I'm glad you're in, was concerned that Fido was distressed. He seemed to be tangled up in his lead. But you're here now. Bye.' Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
