These idiots should serve time for the stabbings. Banned from coming to Southend for life & should not be allowed out of their own town after 7pm for 12 months.

But all 4 where arrested and taken in so the cops must of been there in no time, just down to collecting evidence and build a case and then down to the CPS to decide if its worth it then the courts to give out tough punishment., so 4 hurdles to jump, can you really stop the trouble..? agreed a policeman on every corner would help but can't see that happening, at least they got caught, and also agree make the pubs/clubs/fast food pay for extra police.

CCTV doesn't stop violence but it does allow evidence to be collected. Not a perfect system but better than nothing.
But then we can be sure the CPS will dismiss the case or the courts to hand a pathetic lenient punishment.

All four will probably get suspended sentences and then sue the police.
