Friday night, I witnessed a pack of young boys and girls not quite full of tipple, causing some damage to Jeronimo's, the cafe at the railway station. The police were alerted and responded by saying, "It is nothing to do with us, its the railway police you need to call".
Now wouldn't you have thought the police would have responded first and contacted the railway police after they had apprehended the culprits.
The police did turn up eventually and the pack dispersed quite rapidly. It appears when I made enquiries the next day, they have a video recording, but the police claim they can't use it as evidence. Funny that, because they use private video as evidence when it suits them.
The police are too busy painting their nails and dressing up in high heels to be bothered doing their real job.
Just heard from a resident who has video on the outside of his house and has a recording of a fracas out side of his house. A community support officer came and enquiered who owned the cameras. By chance the owner of the cameras was stood beside of me. She said, "If I give the police the information you have just given to me, will it be alright for an officer to have a look at the recording?"
Now if they cannot use it as evidence, what do they want to have a look at it for? Makes one wonder.
Why not put it on Youtube and shame the little darlings!
Put it on Eyes of Dawlish FB........ Use a different account name....
I did not witness the fracas, but I do know the owner of thecameras and he has the video. As for the cafe, it is someone in Richmond Place flats that has the video of the attempted breakin of the cafe, and I don't know who that is. All I know is the owner of the cafe know's two of the boys but does not know if they were the ones that attempted to break in. I will try and find out more tomorrow.
Tip. If you need to phone the police tell them that kids are playing football in the street -guranteed to get a squad car down asap......
