Arrests over thief imprisonment

#1
Four people were arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment after a man was escorted through a shopping centre with a sign around his neck saying "thief".

Police said the men - aged 22, 41, 42 and 44 - were questioned following an incident in Witham, Essex, on Friday.

A police spokeswoman said a 39-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of theft and all five were granted bail until 27 November.

"Officers are investigating allegations against five Essex men," she said.

When asked about the man being escorted through Witham with his hands bound and the cardboard sign around his neck, the police spokeswoman said she could not discuss details of the incident.

Which ARRSER'S have been conspicuous by their absence?

Can´t see what the problem is.

No, doubt the thief will get let off for hurt feelings, and the four blokes will be snt down for 5 years each. Theif will be on the rob again within days.

It will surface that the police had been informed several times about thief, but were always "too busy" to respond. It will also transpire that the theif is a serial tealeaf with a court appearance, warning, arrest record that is longer than 10 arms. The other four will be good charachter, youth workers, ex-cop that sort of thing.

That was a bit stupid wasn't it? (Essex aside)

Why not just take him somewhere quiet and provide some Contact Aversion Training?

Full story here:



Another case of public humiliation happened in August last year when a man was tarred and feathered and made to wear a sign saying 'I'm a drug dealing scumbag' on an estate in south Belfast.

Locals took the law into their own hands when police failed to act on allegations that the man, who was in his thirties, was selling illegal substances.

Two masked men tied up the victim, poured tar over his head and covered him with white feathers, apparently from a pillow-case.

Exactly. What did they THINK the police response was going to be when they tied the bloke up, chucked him in a van then made him walk down the street to the nick with a sign 'round his neck... :roll:

They're just lucky the scroat is'nt black, muslim or gay - they'd be looking at a life sentance! :twisted:

Oh, and I have zero fcuking sympathy for the tea leaf; they should have broken his fcuking hands.

I don't have any sympathy for the "alleged" thief, but taking him walkies down the high street, after driving him there, is a bit dull on his accusers part.

Anyway that's a detected false imprisonment and a theft.

Great Success!

Aye, but the drug-dealer in question had made the mistake of selling on the local paramilitarie's turf, no doubt without giving them a "cut". Hence his punishment.

I'm all in favour of inflicting pain, humiliation and fear on scum like drug dealers. But let's not pretend this guy was punished by law abiding people fed up with police inaction. He was dumb enough to p1ss off the big boys and was fcuking lucky not to end up dead in a ditch...

That's why I'll never be a Detective, as well as the fact I'd rather be pelted with hot sh!t, don't like buying my own clothes, and would probably look like the accused in Crown Court (as opposed to Mags where a clean tracksuit would appear almost formal) :wink:

So they got it a bit mixed up. Shouldnt we wait until he's had his time in court, then, if found guilty, made to walk around with the sign on. I say, sign on, what I mean is stapled to his nipples.

If I didn´t know you better, I´d say that was the official line from the Police :twisted:

Once we (the police) have finished with someone who (we think) has done something bad they go to this place called 'court' where a group of people called 'a jury' decide whether they have done it or not. If the jury say they have done it they a kindly old geezer called 'a judge' then decides what is going to happen next, usually a slap on the wrist or a mild telling off.

Is there anthing else you dont understand about the criminal justice system WW? I'll try and explain it so you can understand okay....
