Gang kicked dog in air and threatened to do same to owner.  The streets, the parks ,,,

The walks in front of your house are no longer yours to freely and safely use. If they ever were. But even less so now then ever.
And I suppose I should include your own driveway in the above list of things Brits no longer own.

This isn’t a recent story but I just came across it.  It’s just another in a very long line of examples of the defenseless nature of the people here.


Gang kicked dog in air and threatened to do same to owner

Lisa Kenyon
Accrington Observer

A DOG was viciously attacked by a gang of youths while walking through Milnshaw Park, Accrington, with its owner.

William Townsley, 66, was walking his 14-year-old partially-blind Cairn terrier Snoopy through the park at around 1pm on Monday.

RECOVERING from their ordeal ... William and Joyce Townsley with Snoopy, who was attacked while on a walk in the park.

As he was passing the children’s play area, William said a group of around 18 Asian youths racially abused him, shouting obscenities before kicking the defenseless dog in the face and ribs.

William, of Devonshire Street, Accrington, said: “I could hear them shouting racial obscenities but I ignored them at first and carried on walking towards the old tennis courts.

“As I turned around to shout Snoopy, a couple of the gang, who had broken off from the rest, kicked him in the ribs and then in the face before running back to their friends.

“I thought he was dead. The poor dog had been kicked into the air and was just lying on its side.

“As I walked off I could hear them shouting: ‘Carry on, we’ll do to you what we did to the dog’. I was in fear of my life.”

William said he picked his pet up and cradled it in his arms before making his way to the nearby Asda store to call for help.

He added: “I was so shaken up I could hardly talk. The woman I spoke to at Asda said Snoopy was the fourth animal to be attacked up there.”

William said he waited at the store for an hour for a police officer to arrive but then had to leave to get Snoopy to the vets. On his return home he contacted the police again and was assured someone would visit him soon. However, he was still awaiting a response.

Inspector Dave Mangan at Accrington Police Station confirmed the crime had been reported and apologised for the delay in dealing with it.

He said: “After the initial call was logged, another job came in with a high priority and the patrol had to be deployed there. Because we didn’t have a mobile number, we were unable to contact Mr Townsley

“We understand that to this man it was an important call, but unfortunately we don’t have limitless resources and we had to prioritise. We would like to be able to send someone to every crime as soon as it happens but it is not always possible.”

DOG

Can you just imagine how totally defenseless and hurt Mr. Townsley must have felt? Don’t be too critical of this old guy. There have already been countless beatings and killings of innocent people doing no more then walking home from a store or thru a park or as in this case, walking your dog in a park.  Another valid reason for armed citizens.  It won’t happen here of course.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
