Essex Police can and will waste time on easy street incidents such as this, when my son was brain damaged in a local education establishment and they claim "there is no case to answer for, he did it to himself" etc. They did not even come out to take a statement from us, as it was booked on a Saturday, evening poring with rain.
BTW: How much was this person injured by in the wrist grabbing?
Was this just another Car Parking squabble ?
These are machinated reports and stories filling up Crime Stats surely ?
