The world gets worse each day, way to much scum walking the streets and breathing the air.
Chin up Tom you will always be far better than them.

When the suspects are found thet should be put down for this violence. They could do it again so before they are killed, they need to be muzzled and kept on a leash and banned from anywhere near other humans. People say that for dog attacks so why not for human ones....

Because humans have human rights. Dogs don't.

No one deserves to be attacked at any time, least of all by 4/6 thugs and end up unconscious with a broken leg. Plenty of people must know who did this, and need to grow a pair and come forward to ensure these cowards are punished for their crime. The sooner thugs like these are dealt with, the safer the streets become for all.

By definition thats a conspiracy. Which is a very serious charge indeed.

In any conspiracy the danger of being caught multiplies immensely with every additional member. One of them will be found out (probably by DNA when they commit another crime) and will spill their guts to save their worthless hide. Just a matter of time. If the plod can actually be ar**d to actually do a proper job of investigating it. They will have descriptions from the passing motorist so ..just a matter of time....

Conspiracy implies an element of pre-planning, numbers alone do not equate to a conspiracy.

Crime is Benfleet is slowly rising. Perhaps they should re-open the Police Station and put some more patrols out.
