Yesterday evening’s local situation

I am based in a town with an often terribly abusive culture and a lot of violence. Abuse is generally glorified here, applauded, at all levels in society and victims made fun of, shunned, at all levels in society.

Here where we live, we frequently get pestered by local youngsters whose parents are typical abusive adult yobs.

They do things like climb onto the roofs and bully us in our homes. The police won’t do anything about it because they’re terrified of getting backlash from these youngsters’ relatively well-to-do parents. Such as getting sued. The youngsters know it and think they know how to use it on civilians.

But their psychopathic troll tactics don’t have the same effect on emancipated civilians like me who’ve seen a bit of the world.

In the past, I took photos, posted them on the local police’s Facebook page and I called the police about them too. A waste of time. I repeat, the local police are (often abusive themselves but also) terrified of these youngsters’ parents.

Other than abusive yobs, the local community consists of mostly unbelievably gullible fools with almost no education, very little life experience hence very little perspective and no hope for the future whatsoever.

Meanwhile, at about the same time near Tampa in Florida, a guy from Brandon killed a 3-month-old baby, the baby’s mother and grandmother, a man, and a dog called Diogi. He also shot an 11-year-old girl several times. A former marine sharpshooter with a health problem.

Most of the locals would consider that a laughing matter.

I don’t.

(No, not literally everyone here would consider it a laughing matter, but far too many to allow me to feel comfortable in this town.)

  1. When I turned around when the youngsters had left, probably the neighbourhood’s biggest adult yob, a two-faced sadistic bully, thought he was going to stir up some more trouble by blocking access to my flat. I was not having it.

    He has abusive cop friends. I was not having any of his cop friends’ shit either when they thought that they could stir up some trouble and assumed I would cower in a corner in fear, the way one is supposed to here if one is female and/or over 45. I walked to the local police station in the middle of the night and spoke into the station’s CCTV camera. I said. “You need to observe the law. The law.”

    They had been engaging in misappropriation of police equipment for the sole purpose of bullying what they apparently saw as “a mere stupid old cow from abroad”.

    • You know what else? This case would likely be different, but when youngsters trespass and end up hurting themselves, not the youngsters but the party whose property it is can be liable.

      There’s an important case – it may be on this website, but I don’t think so – in which youngsters broke into an empty facility, got hurt and then sued the facility. It feels counter-intuitive, but the principle behind it was that there was a duty of care to ensure that nobody could get onto the terrain or into the facility, something along those lines. A duty of care towards youngsters who may or may not do stupid stuff.

      (I’ll have a look later, see if I can find the details of that case. Not all such cases go that way.)

      (I studied various types of legal cases for a while. I gave my law books away to Portsmouth Advice but I still have everything that I printed and there still are some related posts on this website.)
