To be fair though he is still recovering from being the victim of crime after that bloke broke in and stole all his payslips.

She is,

I don't agree at all. The police are using social media effectively when required, but don't want to post premature or unfounded information there to start a panic.   Nobody can stop individuals po

Looking on the bright side, isn't it a relief to know that the rogues can't get their hands on the Mayor's chain?

The Mayor's chain is just an item of office and there may be some loss, but to the people who have had their houses and possessions burgled and type of raped, I piss on the contemptuous twat(s) and wouldn't be aggrieved if they had an unfortunate accident.

I heard it was a grey seat, driven by Lord Lucan, with Elvis , Amelia Earhardt and Michael Jackson as passengers, with the ability to teleport to 4 different island locations simultaneously (since at one point is was being claimed to be in Anagh Coar , Crosby , Castletown and Port Erin within 10 minutes).

Anyone know if there's been any robberies in the north, aside from taxpayers being fleeced for the "not fit for purpose" road through the centre of town?

Or is there nothing of value left in Ramsey these days?

They will probably hit Ramsey in a few days, the burglars are probably just waiting on their inoculations!

Maybe they are based in Ramsey, and didn`t wan`t to hit anything to close to where they are staying.

Anyone in Ramsey seen a bunch of scousers in a silver grey hatchback around?

Something happening according to page.

What's that then? All I see is the usual bollocks.

 

Was in reference to the Saddle Road closed/Vicarage Road/Peel Road - heavy police presence,dogs,vans etc.comment.

Doesn`t seem to have come to much.

Said on the radio no break ins over the weekend but there have been as people have reported them all over social media. When we will get the truth as opposed to the bullshit spin?

 

Yeah this,exactly whats doing my head in, although at the moment I am believing more on the breakins page than the police for some reason.

I wouldn't advise keeping a rolling pin in your bedroom. If you attack a burglar with a weapon you have to justify why you had that weapon in that room. Not many people roll pastry in the bedroom. You could probably claim you were using it to hit your partner but I wouldn't recommend it.

 

Screwdrivers are appropriate in every room though...

 

Fuck it, after debating this several times,decidied just to go with the axe, screw the consequences.

People talking about "protecting their kids"

 

What's the best way to protect young children?

 

Option one

Make a noise and scare the intruder away, call the police and collect as much evidence as you can. If the kids wake up just explain it away as obviously depending on age and nature of kids they could be seriously freaked for years to come if the know people can break in while they are sleeping.

 

Option two.

Sneak into the room he/she is in and start a fight. Wake the kids up so they can witness shouting, banging, fighting, things getting broken, swearing, blood and then the possibility of dad either getting hospitalised or carted off in a police van.

 

I know which option "protects" my kids in the short and long term.

 

Clearly if someone comes to you or your kids looking to inflict harm that is a different scenario but everything I have read so far suggests they will just run away when aware someone is home. Going looking for a fight which might make you a bit of a have a go hero in the short term wouldnt be in the best interests of you, your wife, or your kids in the long term.

 

so far.....

Should we legalise firearms kept at home for defence of one's property? Might deter some intruders if they ran the risk of meeting a Tony Martin.

Might also persuade the intruders to come better armed to counter such a deterrent.

 

Yes, but if they are that way inclined they'll be tooled up anyway and you won't.

 

 

Exactly, leaving fate to chance, atleast a weapon gives you a better chance.

In those situations adrenaline, fear and instinct take over and people find themselves doing things that they wouldn't normally do if they had time to think about it.

 

Mrs Sausages and I both woke up once because we heard someone coming up the stairs. I jumped out of bed naked, grabbed a metal pole that is used for pulling down the ladder in the attic, and went searching for the intruder. Luckily it must have been a ghost as there was nobody there (weird that we both heard it). But in my head it was really happening and I thought I had a matter of seconds to stop someone getting up to where the chipolata was asleep.

 

If a world champion contending boxer ends up in hospital doing something similar, there's a good chance I would too, but I didn't really care in those moments.

 

He got smacked over the head with a block of concrete you could be luckier than him.

Was this a scouse ghost?

The police have continued with their operation to curtail the recent spate of burglaries across the Island.

Between Friday 9th January up to now (as of 1400hrs 19/01/15) A number of burglaries and attempted burglaries have taken place across the island. In more detailed terms, the Central area (Douglas Onchan and outskirts) has had 16 reported incidents, South has had 7, West has had 3 and there has been 1 in the Lonan area, making a total of 27.

On Saturday evening shortly after 11pm we were on scene at a burglary in Victoria Road Castletown within minutes of the offender being reported as being disturbed by the occupant. Officers were actually in pursuit and were very close to catching the offender. Unfortunately he has evaded capture in the area of The Abbey, Ballasalla.

We believe that during the pursuit, the offender panicked and was trying to find a location to hide out. If you live in that area, please check your outbuildings and sheds for anything untoward, or any sign that something may have been disturbed. We may be able to gather some evidence from anything that is found.

 

There was a heavy presence of police in the area, so we would appeal to anyone who may have seen anything around there that was suspicious, to contact us and let us know.

On the same evening, between 6:30pm and 11:40pm a burglary took place in Rhenwyllan Close in Port St Mary whilst the owner was not present. A quantity of jewellery was taken. A further report of burglary was made from another dwelling in the same Close, between 6:30pm on Friday 17th and 5pm Saturday 18th of January, again the occupant was not home and jewellery was taken.

 

We really need to catch these individuals as soon as possible. The public play a big part in being those extra eyes and ears for the patrols that are out there on the ground, and the detectives that are working through the evidence to make sure the case against the offenders is as strong as it can be. Whether it is something that you see happening and you aren’t happy about, or a snippet that you’ve heard about someone being involved, ring us. We will do the rest.

 

It’s important to remember that basic personal security precautions can go a long way to prevent you becoming a victim of crime. Make sure your house looks occupied even when you are out, by using lighting timers for example, and also, get into the habit of locking your doors and windows. We still live in a very safe place. Let’s make it that bit harder for those that want to spoil it!

 

It`s like almost winning the lottery.
