I don’t care who you are – there are times when you read something and you just think ‘what the fuck were/are they thinking?’
This is one of those times.
Now, in the UK you may just get by with a smashed in face – in totally crazy places like the US – you will die!
Mock muggings should be staged across the UK to test the public’s willingness to aid victims and report crimes, a charity has said.
The group Witness Confident says it wants to challenge a “walk-on-by” culture to street crime.
It says the disengagement of the criminal justice systems makes it harder for communities to fight crime.
Mock or pretend muggings – just to see how people will react? Are you nuts!?
What will they advocate next – a pretend child abduction?
Guy Dehn, head of the charity, said it had come up with a dozen ways that people could quickly make a difference.
These include faking incidents in broad daylight to see how people react.
“Mock muggings can be a way of working with the police to test public reaction,” said Mr Dehn.
“Don’t be a have-a-go-hero unless you really know what you are doing. But if you are there and can take a photo safely, then that can make the difference.”
Sweet mother of Jesus!
Guy – I just hope upon hope you really don’t do this. At all. Ever.
