Here we are, another 'crime is down' statistic in Walthamstow this week.

We have had a shooting, stabbing , two sexual attacks, one of which a 13 year old girl in broad daylight.

The common denominator here? Not a policeman in sight!, except after the event!

Also, where is Stickmanny and his warped crime figures that were mangled and massaged by the police?

I think it's difficult for any Police spokesperson at the moment - You would hide too, if you were as continuously wrong as Stickmanny!
