Violence Against Women

Good to see the creeper defence league out in full force.

The cops absolutely can, and probably should, investigate, and lodge a report.


#563

Can only investigate if people report, that’s what people are telling them to do.


#564

Well you can be skeptical - but if someone I knew was being followed home at night, I wouldn’t be posting it in a forum and forgetting about it.


#565

But…

It’s more that I’m astounded at the mindset of “but but but what’s wrong with a nice gentle bit of intimidatory stalking?”
I can’t even begin to work out why anyone’s on the creeper’s side here.


#566

Farking lol. You think I’m defending creepers? Read it slowly again and have a careful think about who I’m having a go at.


#567

■■■■■■ if I know. The “let’s wind laws and social mores back to the 1950s” side?


#568

That’s simply not what the post was saying at all.


#569

You know what the thing is.
Despite being obviously well versed in creeper law, it’s not for you to fucken decide what the cops will or won’t do.

Secondly.
You’re fucken wrong.
Thankfully.

Hap seems to be going off rails lately. bit wimm esque.


#573

Don’t put words into my mouth - I was the one who pointed out that the deceased women was of Palestinian origin which was misreported by the media in the first few days


#574

Ethnicity would be Arab surely.


#575

Um well no, following someone can be a crime. It’s called stalking, you may have heard of it

#576

Has this been reported yet, or are we to expect some horrific farkin news about it instead?


#577

I’d be curious to see how many people are charged with stalking based off that.


#578

People who follow people? A lot.


#579

Most likely, but not necessarily.


#580

Palestinian is not an ethnicity. Or have I missed something here?


#581

No you haven’t.
