Copy of letter sent to local police today. Should have got the message.
Further to your letter of 15th June 2007 I would be grateful if you would amend your records. The victim’s name is Joseph ******, not Joe S********. Further, I am shocked this is the first communication we have had from the police since Joseph reported being assaulted. Joseph is a minor, aged 15, and was assaulted in B********. Why does this not warrant following up in more detail? By the time the police investigate any CCTV will probably be recorded over and Joseph and his friends description of the man will be waning. This ‘investigation’ is a far cry from when my 13 year old had a prank with washing up liquid and a fountain. He ended up in the cells and given a Final Warning for his first offence. Perhaps you would explain to me how the police can investigate a prank so thoroughly and to date do nothing about an assault? I would appreciate a reply by return of post.
