I'm completely mindboggled every time I hear of something like this. Can't wrap my head around the idea that someone stepping foot, or staying put, on land that isn't theirs is NOT a criminal offense. If it isn't, then what exactly does it mean to "own" land? Or for land to be "public" property?

Fareham Borough Council has been left to clear a huge amount of rubbish left by the travellers, including builders rubble and an old caravan.

Every time I read an article about Travellers in the Daily Fail, it seems like their entire culture is dedicated to being as dickish as possible: squatting wherever they can, including the homes of people on vacation, absoluting trashing the place and then moving on. I know the picture is horribly slanted, but I still get a WTF vibe off it. Seriously, even animals can figure out not to shiat where they live.

I just watched that My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding show yesterday for the first time.

Of course they're all jail bait.

A spokeswoman for the force said: 'The issue was the highway there was blocked by all of the caravans.

'The only way to sort that out was to let them into the ground to turn around and let them out again.

'There were already caravans on the ground anyway so action will have to be taken to move on ones already there.


And we decided that one big pile of Gypsies was better than two little piles, and rather than bring that one up we decided to throw ours down.

It's one thing to have a single person being a nuisance and that be a civil offense. I don't think it's controversial to make organized trespass by multiple individuals a criminal offense.

See, those ARE criminal offenses though. Well, some of them. They can be easily proven. Why haven't they just gone in and tossed them all in jail unless they actually aren't doing anything other than the equivalent of American squatting (which is what it sounds like)? If they were actually breaking laws, ... well ... you know. American squatters have this down to an art.

Short answer, because the criminal justice system doesn't really have a meaningful remedy that will "fix" the underlying problem. If your case is impeccable you might end up with an order for a fine that'll never be paid or six months in jail, if it's not then you'll see the knack traveling people have for tying up the system or winning a lot of money or both. A court order directing the police to shuffle these people on to wherever it is they're going to go next is the right move here, assuming the surrounding citizenry doesn't come up with something more inventive first. How long does it take to breed twenty kilograms of fire ants, anyway?

So, speaking of gypsies in general, anywhere else in Europe where the new scam they pull is to go up and down a subway or commuter train, leaving a card on the seat next to you with a picture of a sick person, and text describing their brother or sister with leukemia, and asking for money?

I mean, if it is true, I am getting the fark out of this country. The leukemia rates must be through the roof.

I think there are more than one family, but yet somehow they are kind of some how related. The lesbian couple on the show wasn't really related to any of the ones that are usually on. But you are right overall, and there is a lot of inbreeding, and they are ok with it. They really hate outsiders unless they make them giant ass dresses.

No, it's because British travelers are a recognized ethnic group and the government must be very careful how they handle impromptu halting sites for fear of unleashing the farking fury. There are recognized, government-approved campsites set aside for these people but there isn't enough room for everyone and the ones who are left over just sort of set up shop wherever.

Plus, the last time the government actually threw travelers off of their land it cost them seven million dollars.

They would be arrested and locked up. probably on a Friday night so they could spend the weekend in jail. Their money would be seized because they have a lot of it and it has drug residue on it. Shame. Monday morning, they would begin moving through the court system. Oh noes! You have warrants from other states. Let's hold you for a week until the other state decides not to extradite.

Their vehicles would be impounded in one lot. Their campers would be impounded in another lot. Lot A would charge $600 for towing the cars and $100 a night storage fee. The tires and decent parts would be stripped from the cars the very first night at impound.

The campers would be stored at Lot B for $500 a night and substantial damage would occur to them.

By the time they got out, their legal fees and expenses would make it impossible for them to bail their vehicles or campers out. The impound lots would seize the assets for the unpaid storage fees.

Of course, they would be no-shows for their court dates and there would be more warrants put out.

What an American gypsy looks like.

Also there is a good chance they are underage, but that's ok in their culture for an older man to marry a 15 year old.


Yep, in college I was a fhm at this crappy diner. All the servers were hs students, and one was straight up gypsy.(she looked like the one in front) She told me her mom could read cards, and she had the hots for me and she was like 16. Always hugging me and asking for rides home after work. Absofarkinglutly not.

I stayed in Sevilla for a while for school. There are loads of Gypsies down there...real ones (Romani) who trace their race back from India as it crisscrossed it's way through central Europe and down into Spain. They are not white.

Do the Travellers in the UK have any real ties to the Romani? Or are they gypsies in the sense that many 70's rockers were gypsies.

This is on an assembly line scale. They put out about 40 cards at a time, collect them, then move a little further up the train and lay them out again.

Additionally, I noticed that there are limping beggars with apparent foot deformities all over (here, Helsinki, and one in Riga). Somehow they all have the exact same gait, as though it was rehearsed. Hell, two of them were a block away from one another in Helsinki.

I'm guessing this is Europe's closest approximation to the white trailer trash we have here in the US?

This article combined with the others I've seen about bands of gypsies taking over and squatting in already owned homes - it's amazing to me how little property laws over there mean. the problem is there hasn't been a single example set. Just one or two times of going over and seriously kicking all their asses and tossing them into the street and squatters and gypsies everywhere would think twice about doing it.

Silly Jesus: jshine: Silly Jesus: It's not necessarily because of who they are. Trespass is a civil matter, not a criminal one, in Britain. Different processes for handling it than there are here.

...so if I can't find a parking space in the UK, I can just park in a lawn (for at least for as long as it would take to file a lawsuit)?

It appears so.


Well that's a good tip to add to the travel guides!

As Holocaust victims, these poor wandering Gypsies really need a Homeland.

Surely there must be room to share for a few folks with their trailers.

No?


Maybe Britain could ship them over if it were still a british mandate.

BarkingUnicorn: I do not understand British trespass law, at all. Why is it so difficult to remove intruders from one's property?


This is the law as it applies to Romany and Irish travellers FindLawUK. It all seems very reasonable, and allows for the Human Rights Act, but the problem is that the travellers are rarely reasonable. Or law-abiding. They have been allowed to behave appallingly because every time one of them is arrested they claim they are being victimised based on race - not, apparently, based on the truckload of stolen goods they are driving (without tax or insurance).

They are a drain on our resources and a detriment to the welfare of our species - completely worthless. Gypsies, gang bangers, trashy types and other SPECIFIC ethnic groups need to be hunted down and shot dead like rabid animals. Honestly think about it for second, how fun and satisfying would it be able to watch these roaches scatter as you come gunning in wasting these low lifes Terminator style? The terror within their screams as they watch their people get exterminated methodically would fuel me like nothing else in life. Oh, and especially with the ones you capture; the kind of torture you could bring down upon them before you end their miserable existence would be so glorious. Truthfully, this world really needs this type of brutality to get us as a society to progress forward by eliminating these cancers unmercifully.

I suppose that was a bit racist. In context though, if you find yourself in a Spanish city plaza, while crowded, watch the gypsy kids doing the pickpocketing. You'll soon realize that the whole plaza is surrounded with gypsies. And if you are going to fight with one, you will likely have a fight with many.

In Spain racism toward the Roma (Gitanos, Gypsies) is very much alive and public. As an American who knew nothing about them, what I perceived about their culture in Southern Spain is that 1) they do not work 2) they exist on the literal fringe of society 3) they take what they can, whether it is rightly theirs or not...thievery is a large part of their "trade" if you will.

Snakeophelia: I'm completely mindboggled every time I hear of something like this. Can't wrap my head around the idea that someone stepping foot, or staying put, on land that isn't theirs is NOT a criminal offense. If it isn't, then what exactly does it mean to "own" land? Or for land to be "public" property?


You've got to remember the origin of it. By the time the U.S. got to setting up it's property laws private property was more of an established thing than when the Brits were doing it. Originally the commons were where anyone could graze. Your land was wherever you set up a house, as long as someone else wasn't there first. The history of the modern state has been how public, un-owned land has been fenced in and turned into private property.

If you really think about it, in a world where there wasn't a concept of private property it took a really big set of balls to say, 'Hey guys, I know we've always shared, but now this piece of land over here, you can't use it.' Even when it was a group of people making a decision to divide the land up (it was frequently one person with a bunch of thugs), what, fundamentally, gave them the right, without the consent of everyone, everywhere?

We still have laws that date back to this. If you build upriver from someone you can't take water from the river unless you make sure there is still enough for them to draw as much water as they have historically used. Mineral rights can be sold separately from land rights. It's possible to own the right to build a house on a piece of land, and for someone else to have the right to set up a pipe to suck the oil reserves out from under you if you only own some of the rights.

I tend to agree that the British need to reform their squatters rights, but at the same time, we rent mineral rights, grazing rights, water rights, etc. on public land, land owned by the people of the country collectively, for a fraction of their value to people who pay off the right politician, so we could use some reform too.

I've encountered Gypsies before. I went to the beach with some friends once, and some female Gypsies that could've been dispatched from a Hollywood casting office showed up from out of nowhere and tried to carry off one of my friend's nine year old granddaughter. They almost had her inside a waiting car before I intervened and pulled the girl out of their grasp. They tried to grab her again, and that was the first time I ever struck a woman. It was also the second, third, fourth, fifth times too. The Gypsies then backed away, flashed their tits at me (an infamous Gypsy curse), and tried to the girl away from me again.

By that time, my friends had caught up with me and had started fighting these insane women too when the sheriff deputies showed up. The Gypsy women told the sheriff deputies that they had only wanted to show their father this beautiful blonde little girl they had found. The sheriff deputies then put this down as a 'misunderstanding' and cut the Gypsies loose (where I was living at, our sheriff deputies rightly deserved a reputation for being just so f'n stupid). My friends and I never saw the Gypsies again, but word got out, and for the next month or so, nobody in our little community let their kids out of their sight, if out of their house. eventually, some of our rougher residents convinced the Gypsies to move on.

Gypsies are totally contemptuous of us non-Gypsies. If you want to get into their heads, try finding a genuine Gypsy restaurant first.

'Twas a gypsy wandering through Jerusalem that upon seeing Christ hung up on the cross , got to work and stole the nails from his hands and feet, relieving his pain. A greatful Jesus then granted the man and all his descendants permission to steal whatever they wanted for all time.

ALL OF THIS

I'm sure that somewhere there are romany and Irish travellers that turn up, park their vehicles, crime doesn't go up and they leave without making a mess, but I've never yet seen or heard of them. Live and let live, I say. If people want to live a nomadic lifestyle then be my guest. Just don't be a coont about it.

In one case, they parked right on a green hill. It then rained, they were evicted, so drove off, damaging the grass (the residents ended up going up there to flatten it out). Oh, and of course, they left all their rubbish. The other case, when they left, so did a load of new trees.

We heard a rumour that some gypsies had been checking out a field near us. We basically organised a watch on it with 3 people at a time guarding the field. If they tried to go in there, they'd have to drive over people and be filmed doing so. We were not going to have them anywhere near us. We then clubbed together and got a metal fence put behind the wooden one. Drive in the field now, but your vehicles are going to be in a pretty bad state if you do.

Go to Compton, West Virginia, Bangladesh and you will find high crime rates. But you're right, it must be in their DNA, not the fact that they are poor.


Eh, it's about more than just crime statistics though. It's the culture and attitude that really gets me. I was hardly even aware of what a gypsy was when I came to Europe. Hell, you can't even call me racist because I didn't even KNOW if it were a race or not. My first experience was reading an article about 'gypsies' and their plight in the IrishTimes.

The article was absolutely maddening. And it was written to be PRO-Gipsy-Rights!

The attitudes and statistics presented were horrific. They were complaining that Doctors didn't like to treat them because they had no money and would frequently NOT SHOW UP TO APPOINTMENTS because TIMEKEEPING is hard. I wasn't sure if I was reading some kind of twisted satire or not. They were seriously complaining that the school system (free, public school system that allows anyone to get an education) was cold and unaccepting towards their lifestyle. Teachers would FAIL students because they hadn't been to class in MONTHS while their family travelled. Some lady complained that an art teacher showed the children how to draw a 'house' and not a trailer! I mean, holy crap - this is the injustice they face? Not showing up to class for months is frowned upon? And that art teachers draw houses that reflect the culture norms of the dominate culture?

Look, if your poor and can't afford to take your kids to the doctor - that's horrible. I feel for you. That can happen in the US. Not here though. They could take their kids for free. But it's TOO HARD TO SHOW UP. And they complain that WHEN THEY DO, the doctors aren't happy to see them! They were also suggesting color-coded pictures and crap in the hospitals because they can't read. They can't read because their parents decided not to let them go to school - and then they biatch about teachers failing their kids because they won't let their kid finish a whole academic year without 'travelling' around the country?

I have a hell of a lot more respect for a poor teenager selling drugs than I do for these guys.

They are a drain on our resources and a detriment to the welfare of our species - completely worthless.

Honestly think about it for second, how fun and satisfying would it be able to watch these roaches scatter as you come gunning in wasting these low lifes Terminator style? The terror within their screams as they watch their people get exterminated methodically would fuel me like nothing else in life. Oh, and especially with the ones you capture; the kind of torture you could bring down upon them before you end their miserable existence would be so glorious.

Fark_Guy_Rob: ordinarysteve: HailRobonia: ordinarysteve: Dude you can apply that logic to any poor, marginalized people.

There are many poor, marginalized people in the world who don't believe that crime is their god-given right.

Really? I think you are full of shiat. You find high crime rates in any poor areas. It's because they are POOR, not because they were divinely inspired to jack car stereos. Go to Compton, West Virginia, Bangladesh and you will find high crime rates. But you're right, it must be in their DNA, not the fact that they are poor.

Eh, it's about more than just crime statistics though. It's the culture and attitude that really gets me. I was hardly even aware of what a gypsy was when I came to Europe. Hell, you can't even call me racist because I didn't even KNOW if it were a race or not. My first experience was reading an article about 'gypsies' and their plight in the IrishTimes.

The article was absolutely maddening. And it was written to be PRO-Gipsy-Rights!

The attitudes and statistics presented were horrific. They were complaining that Doctors didn't like to treat them because they had no money and would frequently NOT SHOW UP TO APPOINTMENTS because TIMEKEEPING is hard. I wasn't sure if I was reading some kind of twisted satire or not. They were seriously complaining that the school system (free, public school system that allows anyone to get an education) was cold and unaccepting towards their lifestyle. Teachers would FAIL students because they hadn't been to class in MONTHS while their family travelled. Some lady complained that an art teacher showed the children how to draw a 'house' and not a trailer! I mean, holy crap - this is the injustice they face? Not showing up to class for months is frowned upon? And that art teachers draw houses that reflect the culture norms of the dominate culture?

Look, if your poor and can't afford to take your kids to the doctor - that's horrible. I feel for you. That can happen in the US. Not here ...


I'm not saying that there aren't some messed up aspects of their culture but it's just that....their culture. This thread is full of people basking in the social acceptability of advocating hate against them. Do people think that they will help change that culture by reviling and loathing those lazy, shifty nomadic peoples? And for the record, agrarian people have always persecuted nomadic peoples and this whole "kill the gypsy" vibe smacks of that historical intolerance.

I remember years ago on CNBC or MSNBC they had a special about scottish/irish travelers in america. Basically they got their start about 150 years ago selling stolen farm equipment and unhealthy livestock. They then moved up to home improvement scams. The town they lived in only had 7 surnames or something like that and parents would arrange marriages. It was very fascinating. The men would leave in the spring come back in the fall after running their home improvement scams. They had a fund to bail out guys that got busted and at the end of the year any leftover money from that fund would go to a big party. I forget what it was called but I would love to watch it again.

scalpod: LegacyDL: Isn't "gypsy" a derogatory term?

Yes, because of shiat like this.


Often, yes. Now keep in mind that there are ethnically different groups here which get confused.

Romani Gypsies self-apply the term "Romani", "Roma", or "Roms". Some Romany groups see the term "gypsy" as derogatory, but not uniformly so.

In the UK, it's typically Irish Travelers, or "Pavees". They're not connected to Romani Gypsy and IMHO it's odd to call them "gypsy", but the term is used. "Gypsy" was is a mutated form of "Egyptian", based on the belief that Romanis originated in Egypt (there is no evidence of that, but frankly scant evidence of anything in their long history), but Travelers have no connection to Egypt, even in folklore.

The terms "tinker", "knacker", and "pikey" are common for Travelers and MAY be seen as derogatory. Like the infamous "n-word" controversy, they may self-apply the term proudly as a badge of honor, but it might be derogatory if anyone ELSE uses it.

Interesting. One of the episodes of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding I saw yesterday revolved around an entire town of Irish Travelers. The episode was about a girl who was marrying into the town which apparently was unheard of and never happened before. Her husband to be was supposed to be arranged married to someone else before he knocked up the outsider. They were not very welcoming of her at first and it wasn't clear whether they were going to accept her ultimately. The town was filled with people who appeared to live rather comfortably and they talked about how they were one of the richest traveler communities out there. I was wondering how they made their money because they seemed to not want to interact with the outside world and they were in the middle of nowhere. I'm wondering if it's the same community. It really wouldn't surprise me because they seemed like jerks.

Harry Freakstorm: Wessoman
In England, this calls for a stern letter for the authorities.

In America, those Gypsies would be tasting tasers in their buttcheeks and pepper spray across the eyes. (Even if they had a permit!)

And this is why America won the revolutionary war.

They would be arrested and locked up. probably on a Friday night so they could spend the weekend in jail. Their money would be seized because they have a lot of it and it has drug residue on it. Shame. Monday morning, they would begin moving through the court system. Oh noes! You have warrants from other states. Let's hold you for a week until the other state decides not to extradite.

Their vehicles would be impounded in one lot. Their campers would be impounded in another lot. Lot A would charge $600 for towing the cars and $100 a night storage fee. The tires and decent parts would be stripped from the cars the very first night at impound.

The campers would be stored at Lot B for $500 a night and substantial damage would occur to them.

By the time they got out, their legal fees and expenses would make it impossible for them to bail their vehicles or campers out. The impound lots would seize the assets for the unpaid storage fees.

Of course, they would be no-shows for their court dates and there would be more warrants put out.


Oh but you're mistaken. We DO have Irish Travelers in America.

They don't do the same kind of squatting as they do in Europe and UK. Here in Texas, we have White Settlement, a town which serves as winter home of a group of Texas Travelers who emigrated from Ireland. They generally reside legally.

They still make money running driveway and roofing scams. When you hear on the news about some old lady being told she needs "fireproofing" to protect her roof, or "sealant" on her driveway, spray USED MOTOR OIL on it (this is standard procedure for these guys), then tell her she misunderstood and they're owed 5x more than what she thought was the original "price" from the first guy she talked with and badger the nice, easily confused old lady till she cries and hands over all the money she has, THAT is Traveler work right there, almost nobody else runs that scam. They drive all over doing this, looking for a vulnerable mark.

But the news won't SAY it. The public's not aware of it and basically they'd be accused of a) making stuff up- blaming the "gypsies"? Really? and/or b) making slanderous accusations against the Irish. Because the Travelers are Irish. So you can't say anything bad about them.

A few years ago, I found a $5 bill on the subway. A lady with a baby was begging on the street and since the $5 wasn't "really" mine, I gave it to her. Within 2 seconds, I had 10 gypsy ladies surrounding me begging for money. I said no and started walking and they followed me begging for 3 blocks until one tried to grab my bag. I yelled and threatened them to back off.

And of course to the passerbys I looked like the arsehole!

I've noticed MANY young women with children begging lately (since summer began in NYC). It breaks my heart, but I don't give to them anymore.

Ah yes, logical fallacies is the only weapon the witless use in a battle of wits. Name calling aside, I see that you are incapable of engaging in any sort of rational dialog, but I will part with you some words of wisdom I think would behoove you to think about. While my thoughts may seem frightening, "sick" and on the fringe of today's societal norms, if you truly take a honest look at the history of mankind, Nature, including the universe, you will see weak links like these gypsies (and other aforementioned trash), slow/injured gazelle, a dying star are considered in this universe and reality expendable and obsolete. And "nature takes it's course". Somehow in the last 100 years we lost that about ourselves. Yes, maybe Hitler (or the Jew's continual victimization of the holocaust) did ruin our "killer insect" and our true nature - the nature that made us kings, conquers, TOP OF THE FOOD CHAIN (let that resonate in you for a bit). Hell, and this may be a hard truth to accept, maybe we plateaued as a species and the universe and mother earth needs to eliminate us like it did the dinosaurs.

I will tell you one thing though, this shiat we have going on now is destined to fail. We need to trim the fat so to speak, and the only logical solution is unfortunately (for the weak) to eliminate indiscriminately the weak link. Accepting the weak into the fold was the beginning of the end and our only chance for survival in this harsh reality is to re-discover our killer insect and cut away the rotting flesh and heal as a species so we can grow and evolve. We don't, we deserve our fate. Extinction.

Death is a good thing because it is the ultimate problem solver. However, It's time to put an end to the weak thinking and weak thinkers and make the choice whether or not we want to survive as a species.

They could just show re-runs of Family Guy

Just blast their version of "Bird is the Word" all night.

I never even thought a show could make me stop watching based on one plot point. Family Guy proved me wrong.

I, somehow, made it through that episode, and stopped maybe half way through the Brian and Stewie locked in the bank vault episode and never went back. Brian eating Stewie's poo was it for me.

Long story short, the range was there first, the Gypsies don't like it so they vandalized it for years and then ended up burning it down. The city installed surveillance cameras and then just took them down after a couple of weeks because it's not as it it was a mystery who was doing the damage, but no one wants the grief of doing anything about it.

How much grief? Well, a year or two back, some gypsy ran a police roadblock in a stolen car and got himself shot. The gypsies went nuts and sacked several villages, smashing up shops, burning down buildings and cutting down trees. Video or it didn't happen? Okay.

I used to believe in the immutable word of the Law. That is until the night Mrs. Butterman was taken from me. You see no-one loved Sandford more than her - she was head of the Women's Institute, chair of the floral committee. When they started the Village of the Year contest, she worked around the clock. I've never seen such dedication. On the eve of the adjudicator's arrival, some travellers moved into Callaghan Park. Before you could say 'gypsy scum' we were knee-deep in dog muck, thieving kids and crusty jugglers. We lost the title. And Irene lost her mind. She drove her Datsun Cherry into Sandford Gorge. From that moment on, I swore that I would do her proud.

It might be DNA in the case of Irish Travelers. Half of the men don't live past forty. That's an indicator of something.

PillsHere: groppet: I remember years ago on CNBC or MSNBC they had a special about scottish/irish travelers in america. Basically they got their start about 150 years ago selling stolen farm equipment and unhealthy livestock. They then moved up to home improvement scams. The town they lived in only had 7 surnames or something like that and parents would arrange marriages. It was very fascinating. The men would leave in the spring come back in the fall after running their home improvement scams. They had a fund to bail out guys that got busted and at the end of the year any leftover money from that fund would go to a big party. I forget what it was called but I would love to watch it again.

Interesting. One of the episodes of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding I saw yesterday revolved around an entire town of Irish Travelers. The episode was about a girl who was marrying into the town which apparently was unheard of and never happened before. Her husband to be was supposed to be arranged married to someone else before he knocked up the outsider. They were not very welcoming of her at first and it wasn't clear whether they were going to accept her ultimately. The town was filled with people who appeared to live rather comfortably and they talked about how they were one of the richest traveler communities out there. I was wondering how they made their money because they seemed to not want to interact with the outside world and they were in the middle of nowhere. I'm wondering if it's the same community. It really wouldn't surprise me because they seemed like jerks.


They were like that in the documentary as well. Very unfriendly of outsiders. They owned the whole town. The town "government" and "police" were all realted to everyone. They did get a few of the outsiders that married into the town then GTFO after they were supposed to pimp out their 6 yr old daughters. They had pagents like the ones on TLC and the audience would bargain over who would marry who. Creepy

Picked up a boy just south of Mobile. Gave him a ride, filled him with a hot meal. I was sixteen, he was twenty-one. Rode with us to Memphis, and papa woulda shot him if he knew what he'd done. I never had schoolin' but he taught me well with his smooth southern style. Three months later I'm a gal in trouble and I haven't seen him for a while, I got in one little fight and my mom got scared and said "you're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air"I begged and pleaded with her...well you know how it ends, I'm sure.

pug306: My two cents about cases I'm familiar with:

Gaze upon the might of the mess caused by two (2) Gypsy families that were given land by the municipality right beside a shooting range in my neck of the woods. (Jump to 1:00)

Link

Long story short, the range was there first, the Gypsies don't like it so they vandalized it for years and then ended up burning it down. The city installed surveillance cameras and then just took them down after a couple of weeks because it's not as it it was a mystery who was doing the damage, but no one wants the grief of doing anything about it.

How much grief? Well, a year or two back, some gypsy ran a police roadblock in a stolen car and got himself shot. The gypsies went nuts and sacked several villages, smashing up shops, burning down buildings and cutting down trees. Video or it didn't happen? Okay.

Link

Oh, and they burned down a police station, too.

Charming folks.

See, those ARE criminal offenses though. Well, some of them. They can be easily proven. Why haven't they just gone in and tossed them all in jail unless they actually aren't doing anything other than the equivalent of American squatting (which is what it sounds like)? If they were actually breaking laws, ... well ... you know. American squatters have this down to an art.

I don't get this whole Gypsie thing. The wife watched that gypsie wedding show, though, and I agree that the young chicks are hot. That's what's important.


The fact that they are hot are why the Gypsies reproduce so young.

Coelacanth: I've encountered Gypsies before. I went to the beach with some friends once, and some female Gypsies that could've been dispatched from a Hollywood casting office showed up from out of nowhere and tried to carry off one of my friend's nine year old granddaughter. They almost had her inside a waiting car before I intervened and pulled the girl out of their grasp. They tried to grab her again, and that was the first time I ever struck a woman. It was also the second, third, fourth, fifth times too. The Gypsies then backed away, flashed their tits at me (an infamous Gypsy curse), and tried to the girl away from me again.

By that time, my friends had caught up with me and had started fighting these insane women too when the sheriff deputies showed up. The Gypsy women told the sheriff deputies that they had only wanted to show their father this beautiful blonde little girl they had found. The sheriff deputies then put this down as a 'misunderstanding' and cut the Gypsies loose (where I was living at, our sheriff deputies rightly deserved a reputation for being just so f'n stupid). My friends and I never saw the Gypsies again, but word got out, and for the next month or so, nobody in our little community let their kids out of their sight, if out of their house. eventually, some of our rougher residents convinced the Gypsies to move on.

Gypsies are totally contemptuous of us non-Gypsies. If you want to get into their heads, try finding a genuine Gypsy restaurant first.


What on earth were they trying to kidnap her for?

Gaze upon the might of the mess caused by two (2) Gypsy families that were given land by the municipality right beside a shooting range in my neck of the woods. (Jump to 1:00)

Link

Long story short, the range was there first, the Gypsies don't like it so they vandalized it for years and then ended up burning it down. The city installed surveillance cameras and then just took them down after a couple of weeks because it's not as it it was a mystery who was doing the damage, but no one wants the grief of doing anything about it.

How much grief? Well, a year or two back, some gypsy ran a police roadblock in a stolen car and got himself shot. The gypsies went nuts and sacked several villages, smashing up shops, burning down buildings and cutting down trees. Video or it didn't happen? Okay.

Oh, and they burned down a police station, too.

Checked a few of those links at random, found plenty that didn't mention Romani in the persons actual article. The link for Jovan Damjanović was for a soccer player, not "the first Romani appointed as minister in a government anywhere in the world."

My only personal experience in dealing with gypsies was a trip to Europe my senior year. Our tour guide was amazed that we all made it through the entire trip with no one being pickpocketed.

The sensible thing to do would be to impound their vehicles, but I imagine the town doesn't, because then the gypsies would be stuck there, and what the town leaders really want is for them to leave and bother some other town.

Also "gypsy" is more of a lifestyle label. Irish Travellers are of no relation to the Roma.

Bondith: Fareham Borough Council has been left to clear a huge amount of rubbish left by the travellers, including builders rubble and an old caravan.

Every time I read an article about Travellers in the Daily Fail, it seems like their entire culture is dedicated to being as dickish as possible: squatting wherever they can, including the homes of people on vacation, absoluting trashing the place and then moving on. I know the picture is horribly slanted, but I still get a WTF vibe off it. Seriously, even animals can figure out not to shiat where they live.

Not far away from dad, some blokes bought a small farm. They then introduced themselves to their neighbors along the road and hands out their card, telling them to call if they needed help.

A couple of years later a retired couple had some Irish travelers pave their drive. They did a shoddy work, poured a way too thin layer of asphalt without any ground preparation. The oldies didn't want to pay for it so the cockroaches said they were going to take some furniture as payment. The wife calls their neighbors down the road for assistance. A couple of minutes later they hear a mighty roar as a pack of bikes approaches. The pikeys gets so scared that they leaves in a hurry. They even left their tools behind.

Those bikers wore patches with a skull and a winged helmet. Nice neighbors, eh?

A friend of my sister-in-law is a florist in Hampshire. She was hired to do the flowers for a gypsy wedding and they ordered thousands of pounds worth. When it came to the day she delivered the flowers and a pikey paid her - £500, 20% of what she was owed. He said, in full view of the glorious flowers, that they were wilted and dying and that they weren't going to pay. She argued and a few of them escorted her back to her van and told her that they could always take back the £500 if she didn't want it. She left and chalked it up to experience.

The florist has a part-time assistant who works weekends for her. As it turns out, the assistant works part-time as a barmaid in a local pikey watering hole and is friendly with them. Eventually it got back to the pikeys that someone they were friends with worked for the florist they'd ripped off. One day the florist got an envelope with £2k in cash put through her door. The pikeys viewed it as dishonourable to have ripped off someone they were even tenuously connected to. It's fine to rip off complete strangers though.

In short, fark pikeys.

WTF England? This crap wouldn't fly in the U.S. Trespassing is an actual crime here. If the police say "Okay, you can use the field to turn around, but you can't park there" and you and all your buddies zip on in and say 'psych!', you don't get to stay. That's when they bring in half the police force, and they get to use their toys.

I am glad we don't have to deal with people parking on private property, and then the police saying "Sorry about your bad luck, take it to court, and you might get them out of there in 6 months. Of course nothing will happen to them, and you will have no way to recover your losses. I mean we can levy a fine, but we know damn well they won't pay it.

Well to be fair, i used to be friends with the only full-blooded, Native Rom speaker working in law enforcement in North America. he had quite the second income listening in on FBI wiretaps as people that A) speak Rom and B) are willing to cooperate with police are nearly non-existent. I asked him how he became a cop and he told me he came by it honestly: he was working with an uncle who was running a scam selling fake police equipment to police stations when he made friends with some of the cops and decided he'd rather be doing that for a living.

People need to understand that gypsies/Irish travelers aren't just "white trash", they're like a seperate ethnic group with their own culture and code. Their culture includes travelling around in caravans, squatting on random pieces of land, making a huge mess of the place, scamming people, stealing anything that's not nailed down and not mixing with "outsiders". They teach their kids how to steal from a very young age and there is very little focus on education. Basically they contribute nothing to society, they just take everything they can. I don't know what American gypsies/pikeys are like but that's what they're like in the UK and Europe. Cry "discrimination!" all you want but you'd be a fool to trust a gypsy, hatred/distrust of them is pretty understandable, they only have themselves to blame.

Too small - think of the kinds used in Afghanistan and that's about the scale that one would need for clearing out a criminalized Traveller/Gypsy population. Either they would clear out or they'd be cleared from existence from as many cities as desired.

That is, drones like the Predator and Reaper that have some size & power to them - with the ability to carry larger ordinance.

The Switchblade would only take out people, but leave the trailers to be moved. The larger ones could take out both and ensure that there's no vehicle for someone else in their group to take over.

For smaller encampments, I can see that happening. Think of a nasty deterrent that ends up taking out a noncompliant Traveller.

For the larger groups where they're able to cause massive damage as a group, better to use the Reaper or Predator. Such groups are likely to terrorize entire towns at a time; the idea would be to make their presence a liability unless they *like* being turned into crispy critters with plastic frosting. Collateral damage costs would be more than outweighed by saving a town from destruction.
