Another assault in Colchester what is happening to this town? Violent crimes are on the rise yet the little police that we have sit back and do nothing, the council turns off the street lights to make it easier for criminals to hide in the dark and disguise their identities, colchester is a town on it's knees and it needs help but now before it is too late.

MA, - Exiting here isn't it? I mean it is the wild west and some. Sheriff bob hasn't been seen - run out of town, presumably because he is ashamed about voting against a law aimed to reduce knife crime. Oh, and of course the good folk of Bobtown must accept "it's no worse than any other town" according to the those in charge. I've had enough. My children can't play on the Hilly Fields because of the cruisers, druggies, broken glass, and the odd knife welding nutters - who if caught, will doubtless be back in Bobtown on good behaviour in eight or nine years. Come on bob, get on your horse, put those six shooters on and kick some of those vast bottoms in the council to shape these town up! Are you a man or a lib dem?

I'm very sorry but I disagree. The Police, at least from where I'm standing, have been bloody busy. I cannot even drive for 10 mins without seeing a Police car.
Attacks happen in every town, in every country. I have lived in 5 different countries, 3 continents and many, many towns. Colchester is no different. If you've not had the experience to travel, or learn about life, then maybe keep quiet? I hope the Police get the backing they deserve, as it would be a totally different story if we all lived in Greece, Ghana, Italy etc. Be happy and pleased with what you've got.

Actually Mary, I will not accept that my town, in which my family were brought up and live should accept the awful situation we have in Colchester. I, and hopefully the rest of Colchester have minimal interest in other towns, while our kids are without doubt under threat, to the point young people can't enjoy their free time without parents like me clucking to the point they feel oppressed by their own dad. So, if you find other continents acceptable - please don't hesitate to move back. I worked in other continents, and always felt I could celebrate the UK as a place of reasonable equality and behaviour.

Just because you have lived and visited third world countries doesn't mean that us with higher standards of living have to live in the same poverty stricken crime ridden cesspits as you, if you had lived in Colchester a little bit longer then you would remember what it was used to be like, it was a practically crime free area where you could let your kids play outside leave you doors and windows open and not worry about intruders, but Colchester must seem like a very lovely place to you because you are used to living in Lagos. It also seems obvious to me that you live in Greenstead and that's why you see so many police.
