There does seem an increasing amount of trouble in and around Bournemouth town centre recently (from reading the paper) - why is that? I don't understand how anyone would want to cause trouble in such a beautiful town with all its beauty and great facilities. maybe if these people involved decided to work they wouldn't have so much time upon their hands thus taking away their boredom!

It cannot be anything serious otherwise the Police would not have turned up.

How do you know the person didn't have a day off or possibly not long completed a night shift ? Now for you're next point lets just say the suspect is a drug addict for arguments sake and they are wanted for theft, why would Bournemouths beautiful gardens or beaches have stopped this person from thieving ?
