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.

Snakeophelia: Relatively Obscure: Cllr Woodward said: 'I have taken this up with the Prime Minister directly. Trespass should be made a criminal offence. As soon as they step on public land police would be able to arrest them.'

o_O

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?


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.

Flakeloaf: , camping illegally on public land, unlawfully keeping other people off of the land their taxes pay for, stealing water and electricity, running around the surrounding area making jerks of themselves, stinking, littering, attracting other vermin and causing a public health nuisance...


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.

Silly Jesus: I love it when someone is speaking about prejudices and at some point during their diatribe they say something about "getting gyped" or "paddy wagon" without even realizing it. I've heard it on more than one occasion.

"_______s have been gyped out of their rights by the prejudiced members of society. The prejudiced think the only solution is to throw every ________ into the paddy wagon, and hide them away....."

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.

Never cared one way or the other... but after reading this story, there's a true fondness in my heart for them!

I wonder if the police even comprehend what was done to them yet, or will they need classes to learn they were fooled.

These are probably Irish Travellers (originally horse traders, now do asphalting, etc.), not Romani (the original gypsies). We have some in the US too.
Google them if you want more background.

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?

Wife watches that show. If you pay close attention, you will realize that all the "American gypsies" on that show are from one extended family. I don't know if they could only find one family willing to be on the show, or there really aren't that many gypsies in this country, or the inbreeding is worse than we first thought. But the show centers around big "family" events, and if you watch carefully, you notice the same people attending these events every week.

The one where they were testing out a Kia (I think) for the best caravan driving car, and it was fail. They were going slower than almost every car on the road.Then they proceeded to make bacon, and burned their caravan to the ground. I think it was bacon that caused the fire, but it was funny.

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.

arcas: Can someone explain why the Brits seem to be such inept pansies when it comes to dealing with gypsies? Is it because the bureaucracy is so inefficient that the gypsies are able to essentially operate at will while the various authorities point fingers at each other?


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.

I watched an episode last night and one or two of the chicks did look like products of inbreeding. Oh and I caught part of the episode where the chick married her first cousin. Nice people. Would love to have them as my neighbor.

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.
