That would of definitely been more convincing I’m sure you’re right.You should have said "I know for a fact" instead.
Yeah the decapitated duck boys.It's a big problem - they call it "cuckooing" a flat. If the police are aware it's happening to this vulnerable lad, that's a bloody good thing, cos usually they don't know.
Shit for your lad, Edie - but you must be so pleased/relieved that he fell out with them when he did. Are these the "duck" boys?
Looks relatively innocent to me. Just kids being kidsAnyone know anything about gangs? I was cleaning yesterday and found a balaclava in my eldests room. I’m pretty sure this is all just for show shite. But I looked up some of his mates fb (he doesn’t have fb anymore just insta and snap). These are two of my eldests mates (not best mates but kids that have hung out here and across the street, the kid at the bottom I’ve known since he was 3, lives three doors up). Both pics liked by my eldest. I’m worried about the hand sign? I’ve tried to protect their anonymity (although the pics are just online anyway).

One of our students had to finish the term early due to a very credible threat that he was going to be stabbed by a rival gang member. Sweet-seeming lad, 15, bit lazy but never really in trouble at school... apparently he and a mate (who is in a gang) stole this rival gang member's car and crashed it. They know his school and where he lives. It's scary.I have had dealings with the local authority gang unit . We had to move a family because the teenage son got involved with and fell out with a gang . There was a lot of discussion about where in the borough we could place them , and the gang unit had what seemed to me , excellent information about gang areas , what gangs got on , what didn't. Whether your affiliation with a particular gang would go down well or not with other gangs . The most knowledgeable person at the meeting was a well spoken woman in her 30s which seemed bizarre to me and slightly comical .
I meant more in terms of that would be a police officer who would know the local gangs and gang signs.Neither of those kiddies goes to my sons school both have been permanently excluded for fighting so I’m not sure school will be that helpful. Plus my son would kill me.
The cuckooing of the special needs person's flat that started it all off, that's definitely a gang at work.
It’s hard to know the extent to which that was just kids hanging out and how much was organised dealing though. The older men in cars worry me as that’s not ‘just kids’.The cuckooing of the special needs person's flat that started it all off, that's definitely a gang at work.
Some of the children I work with have FAS. One of my supervisors believes that a very high proportion of people in prison are likely to do so.hugs Edie (we have one round here too). Fortunately, these nasty little fuckwits do tend to shit on their own doorsteps (it's what they know, I think) but, as you also note, this is a cyclical thing. Currently, our neughbourhood thief and bully is out of nick...but it will only be a matter of time before he is back inside...and as he has robbed nearly everyone, he has no support (even though grassing is beyond the pale)...he won't be at large much longer.
Those pics of children suffering from foetal alcohol syndrome - fits our scumbag to a tee...so am caught between feeling sorry for him (cos his life is really demarcated now and it isn't a good one)...and wanting to run the fucker over in the pick-up (can't drive though so...).
Chin up - this will pass.
Oh, ignore the council stuff - just a cover your arse letter - no real power to do anything.
