I'm sorry this is a bit of a rant but having just got back from FH Sainsburys I'm wondering what's going on with this area.

I'm very pleased with the sprouting up of several cool and artsy cafés and the area finally improving what with the Pools etc BUT we are still swamped with the violent, antisocial dross of society.

Walking back today on a Sunday mid afternoon i did a double take as a young man in 20's or 30's walked past me in an agitated way and when i looked closer he was bleeding heavily from his head with blood all over his arm. I turned on impulse to see him reaching into a council cleaning trolley to grab an implement that would make a good weapon, presumably for his revenge attempt. Fortunately another guy seemed to dissuade him.

A few days ago i was in Sainsburys again when a pack of 15 or more boys in Forest Hill School Uniforms ran in with the intent of catching a couple amongst them who were the victims and in front of me i see a larger boy punching a smaller boy hard in the face amongst other incidents.

If i ever manage to walk the length of Dartmouth Road without passing a lovely character shouting angry expletives into a phone in-between gobbing large quantities of their saliva onto the pavement then it's an unusual day.

Apart from the seemingly regular violent incidents in Forest Hill, Dartmouth Road is as ever a place where many idiots in cars or motorbikes think it's a good place to open up the throttle and get to 50 or 60 along a busy shopping street, nicely negotiating between the ineffective speed bumps.
I'm not bringing up small children here but if i was one of the many people who are then i would be banging on the door of the police and whoever else to get a speed camera or something to stop these brainless psychos.

I know this is South London but it's starting to feel like the Bronx. Seriously, what's going on and what can we do? Do we need more police on the streets of FH?
