..it's not your job to 'serve communities', but to uphold the law.
This evening the force said its Tweet was supposed to encourage impartial behaviour and encourage 'both sides of the discussion'.There's no 'two sides' here, anymore than there's two sides to a burglary, or a case of shoplifting. As Longrider points out, there's clear evidence of criminal damage.
Debbie Davidson said: 'Just witnessed kids throwing beer bottles over the fence by the children's play area. Laughing as they smashed on the pavement and against cars parked along the road there.'
Malin Andersson said: 'I saw a child behind the wheel this morning, driving around the park.'
Another went on: 'At 9.30pm there were at least three vehicles driving at speed around the park with kids behind the wheel, also quad bikes zooming around. Combined with the bottle smashing I am feeling very unhappy.
'The police cannot do anything. Spoke with an officer tonight over water mains now being accessed by them. The park is becoming a bog land and area ruined by all the drifting of vehicles. All everyone can do is contact Elmbridge (council) with all that is witnessed.'The police are useless. There's no will to tackle open criminality in traveller encampments, so this will continue until the powder keg explodes.
