Just how many burglars and muggers are there in Colchester? A few more police officers walking the streets would not go amiss!

Colchester was once a nice place to live now every way you turn there are scum lying in wait. Without sufficient punishment and resources this unfortunately will be a continued decline. RIP Crimechester!!

Feral scum seem to be taking over Colchester and what do the police do ??? Nothing at all !!!! The scum I've seen on the streets smoking Cannabis these days seems to go unpunished too !! Scum are not punished so they do what they want !!! Lets get tough on the yobs and return to a civilised society if that's possible !! I myself now carry mace, pepper spray and im considering purchasing a stun gun from the USA !!!

And recently Colchester was included in the top ten of the happiest places to live!! Town is rapidly going downhill, lack of police on the streets is alarming to say the least - just glad that I'm too old to go out in the town centre during the evening and my teenage children avoid the town like they would avoid the plague!!

I'd be VERY careful what you post on here. Pepper spray is illegal and covered under sec.5 of the Firearms Act. Get caught with it and you'll be in very serious trouble. Get caught with a 'stun gun' and you'll almost certainly end up in prison. The choice is obviously yours, but I can assure you the police don't take the likes of pepper spray/stun guns lightly.
