There was no police available to come out until the next day to take a statement, so he staggered back home bleeding, next day we went to hospital so they could check his face and eye which was badly swollen, and to top everything, we gave police pictures of injuries, lots of evidence and even car reg number and details of the car and the road where it happened and everything, its been two months now and nothing has been done, all they say is they are working on it, whatever that means. They said they found the details of the guy and description who did it matched exactly to what we said, but they have done nothing. Are our papers just stuck on the side somewhere with lots of other older cases been left. They only reply to our messages but they dont actually get in touch with updates of whats going on. Is it fair that the victims should have to do all the chasing. Just all seems rather useless system and a waste of time. We have practically done half their jobs for them already. Apart from the fact we cant arrest ourselves.
Has anyone else had similar experiences with the police be it negative or positive?

The system simply sucks. You can see why a lot of people simply dont bother calling police and take matters into own hands. I actually read online how police at times simply dont even bother to pursue cases at times. with a slow justice system. I just think we have to look out for ourselves in this life now. Dont expect much support or help. Just seems your pretty much on your own as a victim of a crime.You are so right Ninja things an take forever. But equally I think sometimes you get an instinct for when things are not quite right.
