  1. Terrible! Sending them love. I despair sometimes.

  2. It seems we have had a number of incidents where people are walking through parks, being set upon by gangs, and I’m wondering if the police now need to consider using sting operations to send a very clear message that if you do this, you will be arrested, prosecuted, and locked away.

    Alternatively we need to all be joining martial arts training and fighting back. The last part is probably not good advice, but it’s what I’d do. Whilst I hate all violence I would take my grandad’s advice… someone hits you, you hit them back twice as hard.

    What about CCTV at all the entrances to parks – then you can capture groups when they enter or leave?

    1. I agree. Zero tolerance if any one puts a hand on me I’m going for the kill no questions.

  3. I think they would have attacked ANYBODY walking through the park at night….regardless of whether they were gay or not.
    I agree people should be taking up martial arts though. it’s brilliant for keeping fit and focusing the mind, great camaraderie and could prove to be a life-saver.
