Personally I think it could work, but it'd be a hard slog to get it going. The Chav culture in this really does need a group of public individuals who aren't afraid of the cowardly parasites terrorising the streets of our isle AND having the backing of the Police. Trouble is, and the scumbag's know this, that the law in this country prosecutes the easiest targets and that's usually the victims. A friend of mine earlier in the year who is a 20 stone 6 foot 2 Black Dreadlocked Bouncer was actually mugged by a group of about 6 or 7 18 or 19 year olds. He fought back, dropped his phone in the ruckus (which they grabbed) and then was arrested by the Police and held in the cells. They actually brought the group in and they had my mates phone on them...yet the Police still pursued the charges!
This had two worrying implications for me. Firstly what these kids perceived as a 'victim' was astonishing to me. Not being racist in the slightest, but if I were picking a victim it would be a 20 stone Black guy. So the confidence and lack of fear of these scum is outrageous, they have absolutely no idea of consequence. And secondly the fact my friend was actually arrested and charges were still pursued charges once they knew for certain he was a victim of a crime. What sort of message is that sending?
Any group such as the guardian Angels would be a toothless Tiger or put out of business because all of its members would be banged up.
I think we'd need a group with authority and backing to be taken seriously. Trouble then the tree huggers would pipe up saying how the human rights of the parasites are being violated. My personal take is once you stop acting like a human being you void all rights associated with the status!
