I see that the fine upstanding citizen was found guilty.
Let's wait for all the vitriol from society members defending the indefensible and telling us how he is misunderstood and it is all plods fault.

I'm not going to defend him because he was wrong all night. I'm not going to justify the rest of your nonsense because you clearly have zero knowledge on the subject.

DYL, please let us know who you are, so that we can see if you have the courage to own up to your opinions.

I wasnt there, I didnt see it & have absolutely no wish to defend or attribute blame on this occassion. Irrespective of this DYL from my own experience I sadly have little faith in PC plod in general & on the 5th.

for someone who claims to "know" people why is it that the majority of your commens are so ill informed and full of inaccuracies and sensationalist rubbish particularly when bonfire is concerned?

Tooth Fairy - I love the Milliner joke (very clever) and agree with your observation on DYL.

Please prove me wrong.
If you read my initial statement you will see that I have (yet again) been proved 100% correct.
PS Well done to the Rooks
Perhaps at last this obscure, provincial little town will be on the map for something other than fat men in stripey jumpers fighting with the police.

I have no idea what the facts are about this. All I know is that someone making smug comments about one of societies less successful individuals is not very impressive. I would like to know if DYL has never got drunk, or never sworn at someone.

A very drunk idiot got arrested outside Pine Chest, after he had tried to smash a window in rage. 11 PC's came from nowhere, had to sit on him to restrain him. whislt he was swearing away like nobodies business. I haven't read about that in the paper.
I was told by a PC last week that when they can't get someone they know is guilty, they charge them for something minor, like a speeding fine. Either way it is a waste of public money not just warning this man. The police admitted they were directing the procession wrongly, and Mr winter wasn't actually charged with anything other than resisting arrest was he? What a fuss. I want the police to arrest aggressive drunk vandals and thieves on bonfire night, not people in processions.. Mr Winter has got enough to worry about, that is much more serious. The police should try getting a good PR in a town where we don't even have an open police station you can't even visit in an emergency.

Try reading the reply DYL i have not defended the man and i have not spouted vitriol, so how exactly are you proved right. I was stating in general that your bonfire comments are ill informed. Do you think i don't read the paper like you? of course he was found guilty. You just see what you wan't to see and seek any opportunity to further your own rather boring and insular opinions.

I am one of those fat people that wear stripy jumpers (who also raise a hell of a lot of money for charity-hope you never need to use one of the ones we support DYL). What I want to say is that the police get more and more confrontational as each year passes. Not one person last year had a favourable word to say about the policing on the night. The police did not want to be there, a lot of them weren't even from the area and did not have a clue what was going on. Anyway, I have seen the You Tube footage and to me, Mr Winter was not resisting arrest. Yes, he may have sworn at the police, but they were trying to affect the route of the procession, which any bonfire boy or girl, knows is unforgivable (we do have the freedom of the town after all). From what I can see, the police were heavy handed and also they can clearly be seen throwing Mr Winter's watch away. There would never be anything negative about the police in the paper, so don't believe everything you read.

It would appear that the only person "guilty as charged" on this forum is DYL - a victim of his own stupidity.
