    I don’t think you can make people accountable for nominating as people aren’t made to do it , it’s not as if they are being tied to a chair etc etc unfortunately the young people of today do not learn and sadly some are loosing their lives …

    With the young people I think it’s a form of bullying,they are put under pressure to do it n fit in so find it hard to reject the nomination,with the older ones its a form of stupidity and they should be pointing out the fact that its stupid and dangerous and not be joining in!

    I agree with lawyers. But on the other hand, when people pass on these “neknominations” turn them into a bit of fun. It doesn’t say it has to be an alcoholic drink. Down a pint of orange, coke or bloody milk for fuck sake. Common sense people.

    There is nothing in Neck Nom that says it has to be dangerous. A few of my mates have done it in a safe way. No different to what you see in a pub on a sat night. They made is different by doing something silly i.e putting a yogurt in the beer or dressing up in a funny outfit. It’s these idiots who think they’re invincible and down a pint of Vodka. Where on earth has anyone ever said that’s a good idea?
    Getting charged with manslaughter is absolutely ridiculous! You say Peer pressure has a fact and I’m sure it does but who said they have to down spirits? If you get nominated either don’t do it or Christ wear a sodding mankini and down a pint of orange juice. Natural selection at its finest….

    If you’re that stupid to take up a dangerous NekNomination then more fool you!! Bollocks to it being peer pressure, its your decision whether to accept and be a total retard or refuse and be smart. I really have no sympathy for these idiots. Sorry!

    So…you buy your friends a knife block for a wedding gift…the next week one of them slashes their wrists in a bid to kill themselves…bound to be your fault right??? Afterall you gave them the knives so its on your toes (a tad far fetched i know) but for gods sake noone pours the drink down these peoples necks do they for goodness sake! You cannot hold a person accountable for something someone else does to themselves just because they have “dared” them to do it!

    It’s not peer pressure and its not any form of bullying. …its plain and simple….they’re dumbass’s, it’s a stupid game, and whoever ‘necks’ drinks in anyway shape or form deserve the out come, drinking a casual drink with friends is supposed to be fun, not downing as many drinks you can to what? Look good? Noone that’s blind drunk is classy in any case and they look like fools, putting yourself in a situation like that is asking for trouble, and that’s to the ppl that dish out the dares too, like honestly, grow up

    Feb 17, 2014 at 9:35 pm

    Omg how ridiculous. If people are stupid enough to do is then they should have to suffer the consequences. If i told you to jump off the edge of a cliff would i be done for manslaughter? Whatever next??????????

Melton Mowbray poppy day parade could be cancelled due to police cuts

Published

on

One of the biggest Remembrance Sunday Parades faces being cancelled due to police cuts imposed by the Government.

Leicestershire Police have confirmed they do not have the staffing levels to be able to support the parade within Melton Mowbray happening next month.

If the parade is to go ahead as planned the Royal British Legion will be forced to pay for a private firm to marshal the route on November 12th.

Melton Mowbray is very much an active military town with the prospect of the cancellation causing anger amongst the locals

Jock Bryson aged 82 who organises parade has spoken about his devastation and shock saying ‘It’s so important to Melton that we keep holding the parade, and the atmosphere is so phenomenal with the serving and ex-serving people marching through town.’

The Melton Mowbray community are now holding raffles and bake sales in an attempt to raise money to pay for private security to attend the march.

Sadly cuts to policing have had a huge impact on Leicestershire Police there is now 500 fewer officers within the force that there was 8 years ago, simply there are not enough cops.

Leicestershire Police said that there are around 500 fewer officers in the county than there were eight years ago.

Ch Sup Andy Lee said: ‘As a force we are keen to pay our respects and remember the fallen, and at some of the larger parades there will be a visible police presence to engage with the community and maintain public safety. ‘In order to support these Remembrance Day events we need to carefully manage our resources to ensure business-as-usual continues, and that our level of service across the whole county is maintained. ‘In previous years, officers in attendance at parades have been involved in assisting with road closures and traffic management along parade routes due to the lack of formal traffic management arrangements.

‘However, this had an impact on our day-to-day operations and demands. With budget cuts and reductions in officer numbers, we have to ensure officers are deployed where the operational risk is greatest and that there is a sufficient number of officers on duty to be able to respond to any incident.

‘This is not something that we can sustain alongside making sure we are able to respond to incidents anywhere in the county.’ Jim Rawlinson, chairman of the county’s Royal British Legion, said they could still put on a parade – but it would be trimmed down. ‘It’s a national problem, but it’s just caused us to think differently about things,’ he said ‘The parades will all go on, but people will have to marshal them themselves.’

ARRESTED: Hostages taken by armed man at Nuneaton Bowling Alley

Published

on

Armed Police and specially trained negotiators have successfully ended a hostage situation that lasted almost four hours.

Armed Officers and Ambulance Crews responded to the major incident at the MFA Bowling Alley in Nuneaton following a vast amount of calls reporting a man with a sawn-off shotgun.

The man is believed to have taken two hostages who were both staff members within the bowling alley.

Mehdi Afshar Chief Executive of MFA Bowl confirmed that two members of his staff were being held, hostage.

It is Mehdi believe that the suspect gunman is known to one of his staff members and the relationship is either an ex-husband or boyfriend.

No customers or other staff members were hurt in the incident and were allowed to freely leave, while the suspect told many others to get the F**k out of here while screaming at his hostages it is Game Over.

 

The incident began just after 3pm on Sunday 22nd October when many families and children fled the scene after spotting the gunman.

Those that did not escape the scene immediately were told to leave by the gunman.  Police quickly ruled out the incident as being terror-related.

The full area is on lockdown with all roads in and out of the area have been blocked and no one is allowed to leave the Nearby Odeon Cinema located next door to the bowling alley or a nearby soft play centre.

The Air Ambulance has landed near the bowling alley and has since left the location.

Video footage shows a number of armed police officers in a car park at the scene.

 

Warwickshire Police confirmed that they were dealing with an “ongoing incident” however while the incident was ongoing they did not confirm the nature of the incident.

Once the incident had concluded police confirmed that the man had been arrested and two hostages had been released uninjured.

Moments before the incident ended flash bangs were seen and heard before armed officers moved in and very quickly the suspect was arrested before being placed in the back of an ambulance which left the scene on blue lights and under a police escort.

A Spokesperson for Warwickshire Police confirmed the suspect had now been arrested and the situation was over.

“Specialist firearms officers and police negotiators, along with fire, ambulance and police air services, attended the location at the bowling alley in St David’s Way, Bermuda Park. A man has been arrested and is in police custody.

“Members of public at the bowling alley and neighbouring properties were evacuated to safety and nobody was injured during the incident.

“Warwickshire Police Chief Superintendent Alex Franklin-Smith said: “We would like to thank local people for their patience and cooperation while officers dealt with this incident. We are pleased that we were able to bring this incident to a peaceful resolution and that there were no injuries. I would like to reassure the Nuneaton community that the incident is unconnected to any terrorist activity.”
