Whitendale Crescent (off Pringle Street). Local British drug dealers and thugs of Pakistani origin smashing cars into walls and lamp posts and fighting amongst themselves. They all need locking up!

Why is it that drug dealers need to resort to firearms, on a public street?
You don't get this, in the cut-throat business of supermarkets, do you?
As ever, the sad few, spoil it, for the rest of them.

Asian incident?!?! Brother Stephen, you make me laugh. How can something be classed as an Asian incident? Would that mean it involved a curry fight before the shotgun was fired? Haha. Anyway, all jokes aside, I can confirm that it did involve people of Asian ethnic origin as well as white English people.

Of course Asians were involved. You are always bleating on about Asians not intergrating and doing as the "British" do. Now they have become hooligans, you still complain. Can't please some people eh?

BTW, the comment is tongue in cheek, before you nutters go off on one, as usual.

F!! They are caught, they won't be jailed, like a previous poster said Asians close ranks, they are all cousins etc and won't help the police. What a hell hole Blackburn has become even the Mayor is a benefit cheat.

I grew up in the Audley/Queens Park area of Blackburn. It used to be such a nice area, until it became infested.

I would NEVER, ever move back to Blackburn. It's a shat hole!

erm this isn't a black ghetto in America where no-one talks to the police. there's going to be plenty of Asian people from the community talking to the police and providing what information they can because THIS IS REAL LIFE not some tv show or movie and Asians are just like anybody else when it comes to the safety of their families.

and are you seriously suggesting that all non-Asians are angels and Asians have a monopoly on breaking the law and somehow can magically evade justice? try keeping your drunken, racist and bigoted thoughts to yourself. that way you show how much of a tool you are.

also i really really hope they all get caught and done cos there's just no excuse ESPECIALLY in a residential area!

"try keeping your drunken, racist and bigoted thoughts to yourself. that way you show how much of a tool you are." ............Why is this a drunken, racist, bigoted statement? What evidence is there drunken donut was p****d when they posted this? Seems like a sober comment to me.

the drunken bit was a tounge in cheek reference to his name and seriously??? the "Asians close ranks, they're all cousins etc" ISN'T a racist, bigoted comment that feeds into false negative stereotypes? it's the same kind of racist bigotry i heard about Asians when the grooming scandal was happening - it was **** then and it's **** now. it's this kind of attitude thats dragging this country back to the dark ages. next you're going to suggest the phrase "send 'em all back where they came from" is perfectly valid too. grow up. it's the 21st century.
