Just found this article whilst browsing local news.

Wieslaw Edward Filus, a Polish national, aged 45, of Denzil Avenue, Southampton, was found dead in his bedroom by flat mates. Police were called to the address shortly before 8.00am on Saturday, July 18, 2009.

A post-mortem examination on Saturday concluded Mr Filus had been assaulted, which resulted in a brain haemorrhage and his death.

What? I would say alcohol was a factor in both incidents.

Poles v Poles, dosen't matter whether or not there was alcohol involved. That is what i meant by 'out of house' A Polish crime carried out on foreign soil.

Whats your point, there are police already in the jurisdiction, Polish police are not needed.

i know i know i know, it was a bit tongue in cheek, I'm just not a big fan of cleaning up the mess of a 'non-British/Irish' incident.

This is one of the biggest fallacies of open borders. We have no clue who we are allowing into the country.

I could use hundreds of examples but I think this sums the situation up nicely,

"A Czech national has today been given a mandatory life sentence by Mr Justice Liam McKechnie for murdering a Longford mother last year and a concurrent 13-year term for raping her on the same occasion.

David Brozovsky (aged 19) with an address at Grian Ard, Ard na Casa, Longford pleaded guilty to raping and murdering 37-year-old Sharon Coughlan at Great Water Street, Longford on September 15, 2007.

i love your motherly tendencies, your always looking out for people PD and reminding them of their duties :) I would say though that our conversation is linked with the thread, as my original point was about a pole on pole incident in a foreign country. (Which it may acutally turn out to be) so therefore isn't it on topic??
