Just when I thought that last Wednesday was as bad a night as it was possible to have in Luton...

Seriously must be frightening to live in that area.

I was thinking the exact same thing. It's the level of the violence isn't it.

Couldn't stand the lawyer on last nights. People who were clearly guilty, and up to something besides selling chicken - as one of the detectives said you don't make that much money from chicken, and he's bragging about how they can afford 7 or 8 expensive lawyers to defend them while police cuts mean there's only 1 or 2 people working on the case from their side.

And then to top it off the chap who had a ridiculous amount of drugs stashed at his house only got a couple of years, so presumably out in a year. For the amount of money involved no wonder people take the risk when the punishment is so poor.

The homeless chap was spot on, the approach is like buying a mop when you've got a leaking pipe. If you're not given the resources to target the problem higher up the chain you'll never get anywhere.

Whole episode was reminiscent of what's been going on in Cov in the last few years with the gangs going at each other for territory.
Felt really sorry for the Police Officer who put the case together with good hard evidence only to see them get off. He looked so dejected afterwards, how the fuck do they stay motivated to when things like that happen.

Yep...all those involved were utter scumbags.

To be fair, even though the lawyer was a proper smarmy parasite.....he must have something about him to get them 2 brothers off scott free despite all the clear CCTV evidence of them running about the street with weapons.......unbelievable really.
That's why I left accounting and why I was never interested in law.

The people that are likely to be able to pay you the most are usually the ones least deserving of your help.

I wouldn't be able to sleep at night knowing that not only was I not helping, but I was actively making things worse getting these people off.

The "free chicken and chips for bent police officers" conspiracy theory made me laugh.
Ted Hastings was right all along

Tomorrows sounds like it will be a pretty tough watch.
Part one of a two-part report into the case of a man who sexually preyed on young people in Luton, which eventually became Bedfordshire Police's largest ever operation into historic abuse. The film begins with the work of a detective in the Child Sexual Exploitation unit, who discovers that a victim's testimony identifies a man who had been arrested eight times previously for sexual offences but had never been convicted.

Just watching the one about the assault in Luton, it’s genuinely fucked up. Some of the most disturbing footage I’ve seen.

Thought the ending was very anticlimactic and unclear. Did he even do time for the assault?!
