On the 12th July, there was an incident in Thatcham Broadway which attracted 3 police cars, 1 police riot van and an ambulance last night.
This was between (rough estimate), 10 o clock and 11.
Now i know this is new information coming from me and before any NWN journalists write about it but you know, i tend to get out quite a bit and word gets around, thought i would just mention it to see if anyone here noticed anything last night.

Not sure on the victim if he/she (most probably male but lets not be sexist here) is critical in hostpital. But my heart goes out to the victim and the family.

We will just have to wait on the NWN story wont we.

That is a great shame if it is true (and I have no reason to believe otherwise). It is not a surprise to me though.

I heard a lot of police cars going along the A4 at about 10.30 last night. They sounded like they were heading towards Thatcham way.

What is even more annoying is how the police and courts deal with it.

Maybe I made a mistake but I don't ever see you asking for tougher action from the Police or the Justice system to start to reverse the growing violent trends on this Forum. You seem to think that as it happens across the country and has happened in the past then it is something we have to accept.
I'm sorry I don't. I think it is wrong and knife crime in Thatcham should not be tolerated or excused.

I agree totally we seem to be too passive in our attitude to yobs and the polices responses to it. The same goes with the courts.

I think the problem and attitude is that; “It is not happening to me then everything fine.”

They say one of the problems is that we haven’t got enough jails; ok, build more. But just saying we haven’t got enough jails is unacceptable.

Thanks for the support. You make a good point.
I'm glad there are others who are willing to face the reality of how this country is steadily becoming more violent and not have their head in the sand.
There must not be "no-go" areas in Britain and if you are caught carrying a knife, you get 5 years. End of!!!!

What do you think then, we should bar our windows, lock the doors and allow the thugs to take over and give up.
What you do is bring back Capital punishment for serial killers, child killers and Police killers.
You bring back Corporal punishment for low level offenders.
You make a life sentence mean life and you give long sentences without all the home comforts that prisoners enjoy now to heavy offenders.
It's easy, you make it tough for yobs, thugs and thieves who pray on decent law abidding citizens.
It's called a meaningful deterent.

I agree about if you're carrying a knife and it's obvious it's being carried to be used as a weapon, then you should get a lengthy jail term. Anything to do with violence should be given a lengthy jail term!

Jails are getting filled up but that just goes to show that the government isn't doing their job by preventing crime. Harsher sentences will deter people from committing crimes!

Well said Andrea. You obviously see what is happening around you.

I agree Andrea,

Jails are not there just as a deterrent but to punish. The alternative is not jail them but let them carry on committing crimes. Jails do work; they lock criminals up and that is all you want from jails.
