A gang of “extremely violent” rapists are on the loose.Oh oh! Have they informed the community?
Police are investigating an attack by four men on a woman in Dyke Road, Brighton, on November 27.
Sussex Police did not publish the details of either of the two rapes on homeless women because they said they did not believe members of the general public were at risk.Just the homeless? Well, that’s all right then…
Yet in an email sent to hostels and homeless projects a police officer described a group of Eastern European homeless men as suspected of “committing a significant amount of extreme violence towards other members of the street community particularly females.”And if those actions had resolved the risk to their fellow homeless, no doubt these fine upstanding chaps would have said ‘Oh, well, better give up the raping for Lent’, would they?
Sergeant Richard Siggs, from Brighton and Hove street community neighbourhood policing team, also told homeless groups to “make suitable arrangements” and “risk assessments” following the violent attacks.
Police are also investigating a violent robbery, which took place in Black Lion Street, Brighton, on October 20 which is also believed to be connected.Sorry, sweetie, but you can’t know that the risk was only to a certain subjection of the population, can you?
A spokeswoman for Sussex Police said: “At no point was there a risk to the general public. All the victims and suspects in these cases are from the street community and information was passed to all relevant agencies in order to protect vulnerable people within this group.”
After all, they’d already branched out into robbery, hadn’t they?
