    Curry house owner foils burglary... and then HE'S thrown in cell when yobs complain

    UK at its best!

    When a restaurant owner found two teenage yobs raiding his beer cellar, he chased them and held them while his staff dialled 999.
    Sal Miah assumed police would commend him for catching the young criminals.
    But when officers arrived, they arrested 35-year-old Mr Miah on suspicion of assault and battery.

    Held: Sal Miah spent five hours in a police cell after he chased down two youths who had broken into his cellar

    The married father-of-five spent five hours in a police cell and had his DNA, fingerprints and police mugshot taken.
    Mr Miah, who has run the Raj Poot restaurant in Crowborough, East Sussex, for 14 years, was finally released at 4am after receiving a caution for assault and battery, which will stay on his record for five years.
    He said: 'The system is a joke. How can a man who tries to prevent a crime in progress end up being the criminal?

    ^This system is just horribly flawed. How can they do things like this? And what, if anything, happened to the thieves?

    Happened to a friend of mine.
    He came home and found someone inside his Range Rover trying to hotwire it.
    He thumped the guy, held him and called the law.
    My friend got charged for assault.

    Best thing to do in a situation like this seems to beat the holy crap out of the individual then at least if you are arrested you have the satisfaction of knowing you at least did something to be arrested for.

    This is typical Britain and just one of the reasons I will never go back there to live.

    I work in Spain sometimes.
    At least you can beat the crap out of burglars there.
    And when the police turn up, eventually, they beat some more crap out of the perp.

    Amazing little social experiment they've got going under New Labour; keep everyone guessing and confused about what used to be obvious, so you can steal more from them..

    Good God almighty - sounds as stupid as Australia - can't get police protection , can't get judges to gaol the perps., can't defend yourself , can't carry a weapon of defence , can't organise your own defence group?
    What are we expected to do ? - roll over and die?

    You can carry a dagger in public if you're Sikh.

    ^I doubt he is a Sikh so he will not be allowed to carry any form of dagger.

    I owned a lovely country pub a few years ago, only problem was gypos and pikeys. I would not serve them. Then lost my cleaner because they threatened her kids at school, then lost a cook, same reason, Half the staff left after being accosted on their way home at night.
    Police stance: have to catch them threatning the staff and cannot wait at the school or outside the pub every night not enough manpower. This went on for 3 months, now the staff (most of which are my family) are sleeping with ladders in their bedrooms as the trash say they are going to burn the pub down.
    Gets worse by the week, i wont serve them, they start a fight, me and my sons throw them out. Then it come to a head, big fight and i am alone in the car park and one of them has a shotgun pointed at me. My chef calls the police,

    Police 'How many of them?'

    Chef 'About 15 and one is pointing a shotgun at the landlord'

    Police 'Oh dear, i will put you on hold while i contact a support unit, 3 mins later, we will be with you asap.

    25mins later, Chef calls again, 'where are you?'

    Police 'we cannot get enough officers and they wont come until we can get a firearms unit!'

    Eventually every customer came out of the pub and watched the stand off, the gypos didnt like 40 witnesses and so left, the police arrive 45 mins after 1st call for help.

    I was offered councilling and a three day training course in security, I told them to stick it, sold the pub to a big brewery chain and they spend almost 1000.00 per week on security + doormen.

    No charges ever brought on the gypos because no one apert from me would say which one had the gun!

    Possibly not but with current British tolerance toward minority groups and religions there's likely to be some sect leftover from Mayor Kens days that has a dispensation to stroll around tooled up on religious grounds...

    He does look a little Scottish and we can only see him from the neck up, perhaps he wears the kilt and then he can have a dirk (dagger) in his sock!

    Sussex police said Mr Miah should have 'observed from a safe distance' before dialling 999.
    The spokesman said: 'On no account should any attempt at aggression be made as this could easily escalate into violence.'

    In Indonesia they do and the cops give the sods an extra one if they say the wrong thing. It's a common sight on the news to see a motorbike thief kopping a kicking in full technicolour.
    I watch one this evening. Caught red handed pinching a bike: the people around gave him a few slaps and a copper put the boot in while he was trying to get up.

    As for the UK, why the hell would I want to live back there with bollocks like this going on?
    Be happy dudes. It's a lot more fun than crying.

    I have sympathy with Sal and any person who is the victim of a burglary but what i don't understand is why he feels injustice.
    A person in the UK can only receive a Police caution if they admit the offence and they are willing to receive a caution over the matter.
    This must have been explained to him at the time and certainly prior to signing forms to this effect.

    He may well feel differently now but it is not the fault of the police that he does.

    There are no details on how he managed to apprehend and bring the culprits back to his restaurant following a chase. Did he assault them in doing so? If he contends that he did not then why did he admit the offence?

    Chasing burglars is a no win situation. In a similar case last year a man and a relative were jailed for exacting revenge on a burglar who had been threatening his family. This man also voiced his concerns with the justice system after being directly involved in fracturing a mans skull with a cricket bat/metal bar.

    I am an Aussie not an ocker, ocker is an uneducated yobbo , you have a name for them in the UK but I can't think of it now .
    Yes Sikths in Aus. can still carry the ceremonial dagger in the turban but it's pretty small and hard to get it out quickly.
    Had a go at banning the custom in Aus. schools recently but disappeared quickly under the Australian policy of "everyone should love us " and we will do nothing until it's too late - and all the bleeding hearts have dried their eyes?
    Sikths also carry another knife with a weakened joint between handle and blade designed to break off and leave inserted in the victim after the stabbing - good trick?
