How Can We Stop Lunatic-Bullies In
Towns And Cities?
We have wealthy Lunatic-Bullies at the top: they hood-winked the
UK and USA into attacking Afghanistan and Iraq - resulting in
over one million
deaths. International Law
is starting to close in on the criminal Bullies at the top;
there are now countries they cannot travel to without the threat
of arrest. How can we start to turn the tide on bullying
lunatics in our local neighbourhoods?
A GLIMMER OF AN IDEA
The Police need to patrol on foot. This is
desperately needed. Just responding to phoned-in complaints is
not working. If the Police don't have the resources (they SHOULD
have the resources), then they can patrol infrequently to start
with. There are areas of the UK which have never seen Police on
foot patrol in the living memory of many of the people who live
A suggestion to Housing Associations,
County Councils and the Police:
Launch a questionnaire and ask
people to list the main problems they are suffering and list the
names of the key trouble-makers in their area. The questionnaire
papers should be individually numbered so that some people
cannot distort the results by making numerous copies. Anonymous
replies, however, should be accepted to protect individuals
(i.e. if the organiser of the questionnaire does not record
which numbered questionnaires are going to which people they
will not know who exactly the numbered replies are coming from).
Assess the results:
(1) See what the main, real problems are
(2) See who are being identified as the main trouble-makers
Then the Local Council, County Council, Housing Associations and
the Police should meet and:
(1) Discuss the results of the questionnaire
(2) Decide on co-ordinated, new moves
Keep meeting. Find out what works, and keep at it.
Above all, the Police need to show a presence on foot in all
areas where many people are living together.
To be honest, I think if we can get rid of
the Lunatic-Bullies at the top we will have gone a long way to
getting rid of all the other bullies; they will start realising
Bullying is not the 'in-thing' any longer.
A point is we have had rife criminal
behaviour in our neighbourhoods for a lot longer than the time
Blair and associates (or in the US: Bush and associates) came to
power. But an equal point is how long is it since we have had
good leaders? To answer that question we may have to go back
to the time of Classical Greece or Moses. For the time being, we
need to improvise and be the leaders we are looking for.

Under a stone, in an old cigarette
tin, I found a note which said: HOPE IS A GOOD THING,
PERHAPS THE BEST OF THINGS. IF YOU HAVE COME THIS FAR,
PERHAPS YOU ARE WILLING TO GO A BIT FURTHER. I sat down to
think about this, and lit an old cigarette.
