if anybody has any information about the little toe-rag(s) who have emptied a tin of blue paint all along St John's Hill and dumped a load of it outside Pells Pool (or had some blue emulsion recently nicked or lost) then please talk to local plod on 0845 60 70 999. It's a real mess and is now being walked into the area by people/dogs/cats! Looks like it happened in the early hours as it's still wet......wtf next?

Perhaps if you spoke to Sashimi it might put your mind at rest. After all, it's probably just some young 'artists' excercising their right to express themselves and be creative, or maybe just some innocent kids up to a bit of harmless hi-jinks - bless them. Come on Sam, leave the poor little mites alone, after all, didn't we all do this sort of thing when we were kids!

If you make a non emergency call to ESCC Highways or the Fire Service they may attend and place sand on the paint as they do with most spillages.

didn't see nuffin' I'm afraid otherwise I would have probably video's it.....the CCTV camera in the Pells did catch something and plod are looking at it even as we speak.
I have no objection to good graffitti but just tipping paint down a footpath seems kinda abstract even for my tastes in modern-expressionism!
Anyway, the Council have spread sand everywhere so either they plan to power-wash it away or maybe we will have beach volly-ball later!

So, you weren't there and you didn't see them Sam but you know they were 'little toe-rag(s)' and you want the police to do something about it but keep on calling them 'plod'. If I was a 'plod' I'd suggest you washed your mouth out.

Don't be so mean, Slightly Cynical. At least Rothstein has the grace to admit I have a culture. But I am sure Pedant, if he's worth the name, will point out it should be 'irresponsibility'. I'm not in favour of vandalism, but hanging perpetrators from lamposts is very 1940s.

OK, point taken, hang them from a mobile phone transmitter then!

Hanging went up to 1964 , thats when we stopped thinking justice was important .In this case the feral kidz should be forced to perform humiliating Morris Dancing routines in public places until shame unhinges them.

Pedant, the term "plod" is a term of endearment and not meant to demean either the professional forces or what they do.

Newmania, I like it. An updating of the stocks. Perhaps the bells on their ankles are meant to hide the shame of the electronic tags they are wearing. How modern and humane.

So no one knows what actually happened with this blue paint and Sam assumes it is little toe rags and onto the Daily Express bandwagon jump Slightly Cynical and Newmania. You talk about justice but have no idea what it really means , do you !!!
In this instance maybe some evidence of the alleged perpetrators is required. Otherwise we could just as well ASSUME it was Sam Spam, Newmania and Slightly Cynical out on the town. Except in their joyless, whinging, miserable, holier than thou lives, I bet they never get out of their bath chairs to do anything other than shake their grumpy fists at the latest headline in the Sussex Depress....

How about we waterboard them? Perhaps indulge in a little 'pictish makeover' at the same time?
@Pedant / eyewitness - I guess that if Sam Spam was there, then he wouldn't be asking if anyone could identify them. I'll cut through the chaff and just call them A*seholes. I suppose I could be mistaken in assuming there was more than one, but Im willing to take that chance.
Given the unending stream of antisocial behaviour, vandalism, and general carnage in the Pells area, is anyone willing to volunteer their leafy corner to take over for a while? Images to follow tomorrow.

Calm down Brixtonbelle for goodness sake, if you read my posts and somehow managed to miss their tongue in cheek nature, then you really need to concentrate a bit harder in future and stop taking things so seriously. If anything my first post was a dig at the kind of thing that is so often written on this forum, and surely you didn't take my second post seriously???. Furthermore, when it comes to rash assumptions, then what evidence do you have to back up your own statement regarding "joyless, whinging, miserable, holier than thou lives". You don't know anything about me or my life, yet you are prepared to make such comments. I suggest you read your own post again and then see who the cap fits best.

My apologies to you Slightly cynical if I misread your post and offended you with my response. It's displaced anger.
I've just come into contact with too many self righteous pompous idiots in Lewes over the last week and one incident in particular has made me very annoyed. I thought about posting about it on here but as it involves a well loved Lewes institution I knew I'd come in for some stick for mentioning it.

That's OK BB. I won't hold it against you, in fact I have actually agreed with you on another thread. Have a nice day and try to remain calm !

right!- looking at the amount, positioning and timing of the paint along the road, together with the empty tin being chucked over Pells Pool wall (but thankfully not ending up in the pool) and the lid being stuck under the windscreen wiper of a car at the top of the hill - plus - signs that the inky liquid that covers the top of paint in tins is the first bit to be deposited on the footpath AND the huge gobs of thick paint at the bottom of the hill and outside the pond.....need I go on?....suffice to say that it doesn't look like an accident which happened as someone was walking down the hill at 5:30 or so in the morning (it wasn't there before then as one local was coming home from night-shift) when all the paint-shops are closed.....fair assumption now?.....all I asked was if anybody had seen anything to report it, hardly a hanging offence !!!

Detective Sam spam. You are now promoted to chief plod in Lewes. Please investigate this heinous crime and report back on
1. Size of culprit (Can we be sure they are little?)
2. Any Lewesian with smelly feet and no toerags.

Sam, you clearly don't watch enough CSI. If you looked carefully enough at the spatter pattern you'd easily be able to work out the colour of the perpetrator's eyes.

I say little because they wanted to be naughty little scrotes but not too naughty - hence they didn't simply run the paint over the cars (something I thought was obvious Watson) - I also say little because no-one was them so they must have been lower than the hedges (4 feet or so) - or- crawling on all 4's - or- acrobats!!!!...maybe that's it - we're being plagued by acrobats!..lol
