wow, I didn't realize she meant foot chases. that's ridiculous. but later she kinda says that maybe she didn't mean that? based on her attitude in the video she sounds like the dumbest mayor ever. a public official using that kind of sarcasm and condescension to the press, you have to wonder why they can't simply clarify the distinction, if she thinks the reporter is misrepresenting her.

Even if the whole world is against you, one thing will never let you down. That thing is beer.

WTF, that's freaking retarded! One of the dumbest things I've seen an elected official do! I don't get how this even got approved.

This sounds like something the Mayor of Quahog would come up with.

2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

LOL so if I commit a crime there all I need to do is walk away and they couldn't do anything?

A lot of storepersons in shops are not allow to chase people who steal, that is ok for safety reasons with the business but it's the police, they are the people that are supposed to do the chasing.

Move to upstate NY. Many of our law enforcement officials like donuts more than you would ever guess.

Police tell mother attacked by yobs at home: 'We won't send anyone... it may escalate the problem'

Nikki Collen claims police refused to visit her after she was attacked in her own home as they were worried it would only 'escalate' the problem

A mother who was punched to the floor in her own home by yobs was stunned when police advised her not to call officers to her house - because it would 'escalate' the problem.

Nikki Collen, 39, begged officers for help after a thug kicked in her front door and punched her to the floor in her hallway.

After her attacker fled, Nikki rang Warwickshire Police who promised to send an officer to her home in Kenilworth.

But an hour later she received a phone call from a woman police officer who told her it would be better if police did not attend because it might inflame the situation.

Mother-of-two Nikki, who is studying an Open University degree in nursing, said: 'I couldn't believe it.

'I was attacked and wanted to report it but the officer was persuading me not to press charges.

'She even told me that if the bullies saw a police officer at my home it could escalate the problem further.

'I was so scared I asked what I should do and she told me to try and sort it out on my own. I was really upset and felt really alone.

'It's a horrendous way to live and has got to the stage where I fear going out because of the abuse I will get.

'I can't cope with it and need some help from authorities. I've just had enough and need to move. Why should I put up with this?'

Nikki, who lives with her son Josh, 17, and daughter Demi, 13, have been subjected to a terrifying campaign of harassment after a minor dispute over a bottle of hair conditioner last December.

Since then the family have been sworn at, had used condoms hurled at their house, had their windows smashed and graffiti scrawled on their home.

Nikki said the police had been called on numerous occasions but no charges had ever been brought against the bullies.

She added: 'I am on anti-depressants, my nerves are shot to pieces and I'm terrified of walking out my front door.

'This is no way to live. When it's got really bad, I have to admit I have thought about ending it but I'm determined not to be beaten by the bullies who are acting like they are above the law.

'All I want is a bit of support from the police.'

The family's problems have haunting comparisons to the case of Fiona Pilkington and her disabled daughter Francecca Hardwick, who were driven to their deaths after an 11-year bully campaign.


* MELANIE PHILLIPS: If the police won't tackle young thugs any more, then what ARE they for?
* Mother and disabled daughter killed in burning car 'were terrorised by problem family'
* Donal MacIntyre: Following my undercover investigations me and my family were assaulted and we had to move house

Nikki said: 'I've read in the papers about Mrs Pilkington and just think the police simply don't care.

'If they can ignore that family for 11 years what hope have I got?'

A Warwickshire Police spokeswoman confirmed a female officer had spoken to Nikki about the attack on Saturday, September 19.

She said: 'The policing team have had some involvement in ongoing issues in the street.

'We have also been working closely with the local authority regarding tenancy agreements and ongoing neighbour disputes.'

It's actually pretty funny when you think about it... or just very very worrying
