New to this site come here direct from the home page and what depressing reading it all makes same old krap
Anti social behaviour ...council are aware
Kids terrorsing the neighbourhood ...police aware
Local people who know who the culprits are but cant name names ....why not ? perhaps to name and shame would at least be fighting back against these cowards
.When are we going to start reclaiming the streets back........... and I'll answer that ,never !! I know what Id like to do to them what their parents should have done yrs ago !!but in this polticaly misgiuded world with its warped ideas we know our hands are tied but isnt it Ironic that the more violent society becomes the more leniant those in authority become.

I lived on the estate for much of my childhood in the 70s. It was a clean and pleasant place then parents took it in turns (weekly) to clean the stairs in the masonettes. All gardens were well kept. The island in the middle of the estate was a place we would play british bulldog and tag. The local ice-cream man would throw out bubblegum balls and broken cones to the enjoyment of the kids. Anti social behaviour then consisted of a bit of garden trotting or knock and run. Happy days.
What a shame the council wrecked the estate by integrating "troglodites" into the area hoping they would convert to good honest working class socialist neighbours, not a chance, all that happened was crime increased and good people suffered, eventualy moving out, most of the kids went to court farm primary, the abbey or osbourne road. They like me are all grown up but still remember the good times on the estate. I wish you fine people good luck and remind you its all about pride, don't let the few ruin it for everyone.

People do call the Police about drunken yobs on our streets, I know I have phoned them many times. The problem is the Police just say they are too busy to come out or have 2 Police cars for the whole of North Birmingham. If you persist and keep calling them they get very ratty and start to tell you to stop calling them and even suggest you call the local Housing Office in the morning. If you are lucky you may get a beat Officer turn up a week later asking who the yobs are, ( like you know every toerag in the town!!)and where they live.
If you do manage to overhear a name and actually get to get an ASBO on one of them, the Police and Council take all the credit and leave you to suffer abuse, threats and stone throwing from all the local gangs as a target and the cycle begins again with the Police too busy to come out.
I think the Police are scared as they are not the Police of old but just tokens. I believe the Army should start protecting us at home and give these a thugs a scare.
