Actually, people rarely post about violent crimes
Not only don't they post, they don't even report to the authorities: very recently a Draper Estate resident was subjected to a random assault in Hampton Street
during which he was knocked out cold by two strangers whom he had never met before.
I urged him to make a police report, but he was reluctant to do so on the basis of "there's no point, they'll never catch them"
Because of this, this crime will never be included in any statistic: if any of you reading this, or any of your acquaintances, have been victims of violent crime please report the incident to the police: without accurate numbers we stand a lower chance of action being taken to prevent these assaults.
Out of sight, out of mind. Until we end up in A&E after receiving a random beating or worse...
