have these scum run out people to peddle their smack and crack to in their own area then or did they just decide to have a nice day out at Southend and bring along a few baggies to fund their day out?

Somalian gangs see areas like southend as easy targets as there isnt really any rival gangs to stand up to them, and the police cant just stop & search them like they can in the city, so they can walk around with drugs & weapons freely. its happening all over the country, they have probably been replaced already.

So, were these three part of the raids that took place across Southend and Westcliff? There isn't much information here. And is the robbery/assault anything to do with their drug dealing?

my assumption was the 3 blokes were from london but selling drugs in southend and the only scenario i could see the copper getting robbed was an undercover cop was maybe either buying from them or was mugged by them. There has been alot of undercover work in essex lately dealing with the londoners flogging their wares around here, which i have to give them credit for as i have heard of quite a few local scumbags that have also been caught by them

What they call in the Army a flash to bang reaction - the P&G Gazette needs to have a serious case of reading Noddy in order for them to get the right focus in future.
