Fights, Guns and lights

My Christmas lights worked out well....


Heh, the Sainsburys loading bay that had it`s roller shutters demolished by one of their own wagons, has finally been replaced...the reason?


I went to Earls Court to blogon and got distracted with learning the ins and outs of the Internet cafe and the types of programs they use, with the Sysads help of course....


So off I go back to Hammersmith to find a full blown mass fight with around 40 people kicking off all over the place... and more coming out of the pubs...
Would you believe it?....20 mins later and I am tucking into my dinner, and there is yet another fight at the top of my street and sirens in the back ground...

A nice warm day, 11c` after a night of heavy rolling fog...

What you lot still reading my blogs?
Heh, nice one, thanks :-)

My Christmas lights worked out well.. .they can be seen from everywhere around here, on the flyover, in the park and from the High street. Nearly everyone that walks past looks up at them :-) The people downstairs and myself are the only ones to have lights in the whole street....well, those High Bright LED`s....are ..just that!

Heh, the Sainsburys loading bay that had it`s roller shutters demolished by one of their own wagons, has finally been replaced...the reason? The Local Residents complaining? The rubbish everywhere?....
No..it`s the "Winos and Druggies have decided that one half was for crapping in and the other for sleeping or fixing in....
I have now started finding used syringes lying around on the pavement...

The "Privileged" staff were getting out of their cars into unsavoury conditions and were not to happy,
Altogether now...AAAAhhh... gawd Bless `em....
"We" don`t matter, even though, we only have to fuqin live with it!

I went to Earls Court to blogon and got distracted with learning the ins and outs of the Internet cafe and the types of programs they use, with the Sysads help of course....

Hmmm, very interesting the things you can do, and as for the phones systems logging system.....say no more....it definitely looks insecure and open for exploits, more so than the "Windows 98" they are running the cafe boxes on....

Another thing I "can" tell you, is that out of 70 computers and 4 phones, they make more money out of the phones by a long chalk,

A call that costs the firm 9 pence, gets charged at 82 pence, and this to the customer is still cheaper than most of the Prepay Cards and BTs offerings.....

After a nights learning things :-) it got to late to go online :-(


The whole of the "Weatherspoons Public House" triangle shaped block was a running battle, on the road, the pavement, in the pubs and at the other tube station, and then the police started to turn up...
I counted at least 17 squad cars in the new silver livery....(they resell better second hand, rather than the white ones) several Riot wagons and a couple of Paddy wagons trotting backing and forwards to the nick with more "Guests", two Ambulances plus a couple of "Rapid Response Paramedic" vehicles....

The Old Bill did a pincer movement with their vans on the road, which has a metal fence down both sides and is "one way" only, on a car and hauled the occupants off to somewhere....
From then on no other traffic was allowed down the street.
They taped the whole block off limits....

It went on for a couple of hours as a lot of people ran to the side streets to start new fights or just carry on with the one they were already having.

I asked the Police if I could have a quick brief on whats going on, injurys etc., to be met with "Go stand over there", the whole area is a crime scene...Saying, "The Story is ...there is no story", just loud enough for me to hear as I go off the way to where she indicated for me to wait...

There seems to be a new approach to the "can you give me some details" response...
all the Coppers now say the same thing..."I am not cleared to say anything at the moment".

Alledgedly one person might have been stabbed, but I didn`t see any sign of claret around the injured that went off in the ambulances, mind you one of them wasn`t moving and all the medics were mainly working on him while he got stretchered off swaddled in blankets.

Even an hour after getting home there were still small fights breaking out....

I think it`s about time for me to eat, and then CSB, it`s 4.30am and my belly`s wingeing to be filled....

Would you believe it?....20 mins later and I am tucking into my dinner, and there is yet another fight at the top of my street and sirens in the back ground...
TTFN.

Ps,
The photo dosn`t really show much, but some of the blue lights are Ambulances and or Police cars and a lot of the people that look like an ordinary crowd, were fighting...but not wanting to use the flash and draw attention to myself I had to settle for the slower shutter speed so it dosn`t really give a good picture to what was happening...Such is Life...
The Fight Scene

PPS,
I am posting this on the following afternoon and find out from the local grapevine that there was a shoot out at one stage of the fighting.
