The cops are really after the kids these days.

The other day I heard the cops took a 10 year old girl from her parents and sentenced her to stay in a foster home after they found out she was sleeping with her 30 year old stepdad.

It's because British trees 'arbor terrorists.

Sure. It's all about SAFETY. I hear that they are planning to install tree-climbing cameras in every neighborhood that will automatically send out tickets to children.

Well, they are a nanny state...

Won't somebody think of the trees?

except for the fact that they didn't ticket the kid and it wasn't for the tree-climbing, that's a pretty cool story.

A report was made to us by a resident who complained of rude and anti-social behaviour from a group of children playing in a nearby tree.

'A PCSO was sent to talk to the children who explained to them that their behaviour had upset one of the neighbours, and that it would be better if they played further away from the houses to avoid any further upset.

'It was explained that no criminal offence had taken place and that they were not in trouble but, in accordance to national policy, they had to be given a Stop and Account form to show where and why they were spoken to.

'It is up to the children whether they show their parents these forms and the parents are then welcome to call the officer and discuss the matter further.


yes, sending the police after kids in a park is asinine. but that kid needs to grow a pair. police get a hell of a lot tougher than that.

They said they were abusive but my son can't even speak English so how could he be abusive?

It's the boy with the mohawk. Something tells me this won't be the last time he has a run in with the police.

Instead the nine-year-old was left 'terrified' after a PCSO gave him a stern warning for climbing a tree, leaving him standing in the park with paperwork to fill out.

The boy, who lives in Germany, was visiting his cousins in Churchdown, Gloucester, and his parents now fear he will be too scared to return to England.


This is just one more example of the pussification of America.

Send nanny-cop over here so we can show him what abusive behavior toward police REALLY looks like.

soosh: sending the police after kids in a park is asinine.

PCSOs aren't police.

Whether they are doing a job that should be done by private security, park wardens, etc. is a different matter, but telling the little bastards to piss off because they're annoying people who live near the park? OMG, nanny state!!!1

No kidding.

Parental response A: "How did you manage to get told off? Come over here and sit down"
Parental response B: "Dear Mr. Chief Constable, I think the response of PCSO #### was unacceptable and excessive"
Parental response C: "OMG THE OUTRAGE, I MUST CALL THE NEWSPAPERS!!!1"

Somehow I get the feeling father of the year has always chosen C.

The german kid needs to grow some balls, the chavvy family need to stop whining and accept if a neighbour complained and then a police officer told them off they were probably doing something wrong rather than undermining what is probably the only disciplining the Precious little chavflakes get.

This sounds like a mountain made out of a molehill. The article also mentions that the boy was German and did not speak English, which is probably why he was scared. He didn't understand what the officer was saying.

It doesn't sound like the officer acted in a threatening manner, and the "ticket" was a piece of paper with a mild warning on it.

of course not..

I await the follow up of him leading police on a car chase on the Autobahn after carjacking an elderly couple...

Not really the cops' fault:

As an ex-pat Brit, I think this just shows our latent ability to send Germans packing.
Maybe in 3 or 4 years, an American police officer could come over and give the little brat an extra helping.

OK, here's the other side.

We lived in a house that backed onto a public park.

They had a nice "climber" for our kids to play on. Unfortunately, it became "off-limits" because of the broken glass around the bottom.

The glass came from the drunken youths who had "picnics" at 3AM.

Now I have no problems with kids drinking provided they don't impact MY life. If they'd have just had their little soiree and then cleaned up and left, I'd have zero issue with this. Go ahead, kill your brain cells, no skin off my nose...

Unfortunately for us, one way to these losers to prove their "manhood" was to break their bottles when done with them.

We tried calling the cops, but those donut-eating flatfoots were too damn lazy to get out of their cruisers to arrest these worthless pieces. You see, it's much less effort running radar traps that actually helping the community that pays their wages.

When we FINALLY got them to respond, the silly cops couldn't catch them because they failed to seal off all exits of the park and the perps got away.

Worse than that, the partiers vandalized our properties as "revenge" for us calling the cops.

We just gave up and moved out of that neighborhood.

It's just a predictor. Like boys with long hair or jewelry, or being black. Doesn't mean you WILL be a criminal, just that you're really really likely to be one. That's all.

If you don't challenge the Germans on the trees and show them who's boss, before you know it they are rolling through the low countries.

No more Chamberlain appeasements, beacause An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last. You have to nip it in the bud.

Well played Britian, fight the good fight.

You shall defend your trees, whatever the cost may be, you shall fight 9 year olds on the beaches, you shall fight them on the landing grounds, you shall fight in the fields, trees, parks, and in the streets, you shall fight in the hills; you shall never surrender the trees to mohawked youth German Euro trash.

I once had a police officer do this when I was about 10...shouting for us to get down from a tree (we were about 8 feet up), and lecturing us about 'someone else's property'. Then he claimed he was calling for 'backup', and told us not to run or he could chase us down easily since he could 'run like a deer'.

My friend Billy called him too fat to chase us down.

He got a private ride home.

I take it the policeman drove him home then for calling him fat?

It wasn't even that. A stop and account form details the individual being stopped and asked to account for their actions. That's it.

Um.

Let's see...

Kids do rucus near a house, being kids.

People who live at house complain to appropriate authority about noise, because kids at play are annoying sometimes (even to this 23 year old. Get off my dead grass lawn).

Appropriate Authority goes over, tells kids there was a complaint, they need to move farther away from the house complaining about them, and fill out this form saying they were told that there was a complaint and asked to move.

So. Um.

What's the problem?
