dumfounded

I went to a meeting last night in weaste,when we came out a women was at the door and she said i cant believe what i have been watching,10 youths have just kicked down that front door and gone in to that house. My colleague said to her have you phoned the police she said no so my colleague did we waited due to the fact the officer was coming from Broughton he entered the house on his own, we waited till one more officer attended and then we left.The thing that shocked me was why no one made contact with the Police surely the neighbours heard or perhaps the lady watching.How can our Police do their job without help from the public are we all to afraid to get involved?

Make you think?

Salford accounts also revealed that, while Salford Council has become a Living Wage employer, those at the bottom end of the pay scale were hardest hit by the cuts – 177 school and non-school staff who worked for the Council and earned under £20,000 left employment – 86% of the total axed posts.

They left with average `exit packages’ of just over £9,000. This compares to the binned Assistant Chief Executive, who got a `loss of office’ pay off of almost £20,000 – plus over £91,000 as a pension pot `capitalised cost of early retirement’.
