This is a question I witnessed a crime

Freddy Woo writes, "A group of us once staggered home so insensible with drink that we failed to notice someone being killed and buried in a shallow grave not more than 50 yards away. A crime unsolved to this day."

Have you witnessed a crime and done bugger all about it? Or are you a have-a-go hero?
Whatever. Tell us about it...

Bar Room Battles
Due to my penchant for the odd pint I've witnessed, and been in, quite a few bar room brawls. But my favourite happened in Redcar, North East England.

Redcar is rough but, the place I was based, Eston, is even rougher. It's the sort of area where anyone with more than one ear is a cissy.

Anyways. I was staying directly across the road from where I worked in. It was a pub. A *really* rough pub and the downstairs bar was populated with some of the finest knuckle-draggers you've ever seen.

But I can fit into almost any environment and I was soon a regular and could be found propping up the bar after work. I got to know a lot of the local meatheads and they soon found out I was a computer consultant and they soon found out I'd fix their systems for beer. So it soon became a regular fixture, me at one of the tables happily de-porning systems ( me missus will kill me...), removing virii and spyware and installing cracked software for them.

So all was well with the world. Then, one night , there was a pool match with another pub and it kicked off. A massive bar-room brawl with cues being used as clubs, chairs and tables flying across the room (often accompanied by flying teeth) and fists, boots and heads being used with abandon.

The bar staff just scuttled to the safety of the lounge bar and soon I was the only spectator - literally, everyone in the bar was involved in the fight. Of course this couldn't last for long and a meathead, having dispatched his opponent, by throwing him through the toilet doors, came looking for his next victim. Me.

He saw me standing alone at the bar and started to run across the room towards me. I saw him and did my famed "deer in the headlights" impression and prepared to defend myself when a mighty roar came across the room.


It was the head hardman. The hardman's hardman and I'd fixed his machine for him several times and he didn't want anyone interfering in his free computer support.

Redcar, Redcar...
Lovely place. I had to go there for a meeting a few weeks ago.

I got lost on the fucking way out. Drove round probably the roughest estate I'v ever been on in my entire life before I found a sign pointing to Middlesbrough.

Never thought I'd be so fucking happy to be going to Middlesbrough...*

*Actually it's not that bad - got a good mate in 'Boro. I just thought I'd pander to the stereotype.

You fabulous bastard...
I can't remove the mental image of this from my head, and I commend the genius of having the roughest bastard in the pub guarding your arse simply for free computer stuffs.

Perhaps a closet geek himself, no?

I know the look!
I had a deer in my headlights tonight in fact! Just about 45 minutes ago. I didnt hit her, but someone else had. And she was bad. So I screeched to a halt and called 911 for emergency services, then baby say (deer sat?) her until the rozzers arrived. Poor little girl.
