Drunken Brit beats up young Polish policewoman

Makes one want to say: Send all the Brits back to Albion where they belong!

On the night of Monday to Tuesday police officers from the prevention department patrolled the Royal Route (Trakt Krolewski). They stopped just in one of the parking lots at the Krakow suburb. A man came to the police car. He opened the door and hit a policewoman in the face with his fist. Then he began to run. The second patrolman caught up with him, and threw to the ground and handcuffed him.

- It's a young policewoman, barely admitted to the service. I was shocked - says officer from the downtown command. - This event was so absurd that at first no one could understand what had happened.

This did not know also the arrested 40-year-old. The man (UK citizen) was completely drunk. He came at the hearing only after sobered up. But he could not answer the question as to why hit the police officer. - I do not remember that I hit anyone - he said. However he admitted to the allegation of infringement upon the personal inviolability on the police officer : - If you say so, it's probably so. But I do not know why I did it - he said.

On Wednesday, the case of a man was heard under an expedited procedure by a downtown court which conditionally placed on parole for two years. The court however ordered to pay a victim 2 thousand zł of compensation.

It's good to see that the media isn't making a meal out of this, if this was the UK and the man in question was a Pole and the woman a Brit, you can bet your life on the fact that this would make the front headline of both the Sun and the Daily Mail.

This is sad to hear and I agree in Britain this would be amplified x 10 about how terrible Polish people are. The title does say 'beat up' when actually, reading the article, it was one punch and then he ran off, but this is something you get a lot in Britain. People get so pissed drunk that they do stupid stuff and then have no clue what they did. Not surprising a number of bars in Poland do not allow any Brits in, knowing what might go on after a few drinks.

Police being assaulted is a non-story in the UK. The Daily mail tend to report stories such as Poles murdering the elderly which still didn't make page 1. But when the British make up around 20 convictions (never mind arrests) per day as Poles do in the UK, you may understand why Poles committing crime is hardly newsworthy anymore. Last one I heard, last week, was a Pole who was angry that a friend took photos of him will drunk as a joke who was so ashamed that he ended up repeatedly stabbing the photographer a few days later.

I wouldn't be opposed to a swap take back the Poles and UK takes back Brits. The crime rate in the UK would go down for sure.

I agree. If this was a violent crime by a Pole in the UK, it wouldn't merit an article, never mind a photo. At best three lines in the courts page. In any case, knowing the Polish police, I wouldn't be surprised if there's more to it.

Agreed and the idiot should have spent some time in prison as a lesson to others.

He spent more than that visiting Poland.

Should be an automatic custodial sentence for all assaults on police and massive fine on top or an even longer sentence if that fine is unpaid

Not a nice introduction to police service and Brits for the police woman - hopefully she knows people who have gone to live in the UK and can relate more positive anecdotes about the way the majority of the natives behave there.

I agree, there should be a custodial sentence for assaulting police in cases where it is proven beyond doubt to have happened. But whose evidence is more believable and likely to be true - a tourist, drunk or not, or a Polish police 'officer' without independent corroboration?

In recent years most visiting Brits (aka lager louts) in places such as Kraków and Wrocław seem to have gone out of their way to dispel the once prevailing stereotype in Poland of the prim and proper Englihsman in a suit, tie and bowler hat driking his 5 o'clock tea tea and munching scones.

Most? Really? I have a hard time finding anyone misbehaving in Krakow.

And you got that statistic from where exactly, it wouldn't happen to be the daily mail or the sun by any chance?

No, the Telegraph.

In 2010, 6,777 Poles were convicted of crimes

Here is a typical story the kind that everyone who reads local papers will have seen over and over. Notice PC Britain doesn't even bother to mention his nationality. As I say nothing special about Polish criminals.

They came in third place for arrests by nationality from the riots of last year (after Jamaicans and Somalians).

Rioters from Jamaica represented the largest group of foreign inmates, followed by Somali and Polish offenders. The list also included those from Colombia, Iraq, Congo, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.

An interesting take in the Poilsh press:

Police in Britain arrested two Polish men this week in conjunction with the recent riots that have terrorised the nation.

I suppose it is possible that it only took two Poles to get in third place, providing the other 41 countries had one offender per country.

Don't want to do the time, commit a crime in Poland.

This is ridiculous. If this happened in the states or even Canada he would have seen prison time with a black cell mate. Lol he even admitted to assaulting the police officer!!!! 2k fine, what a joke!

Kinda reminds me of that incident where a drunk Paki in the UK assaulted a girl but was let off the hook because as a Muslim he is not used to dealing with the effects of Alcohol....or how 3rd world rapists in Scandinavia get off the hook for raping Scandinavian women.

It should be pointed out (as was done on several previous threads), that in terms overall crime compared to the native population of Britain Poles commit less crime per capita than do the locals.

You left the 'stani' off that word which in its present form is considered offensive to members of that community, not that their race needs to come into it anyway - people are people.

I appreciate your effort to civilize the savages, but did you neglect this gem in the same post:

? There's no teaching racists. You can take an ape to the opera, but he can't sing the aria.

I'm not sure, the piece never said The piece was more to say that the riots were made up of opportunists rather than any political agenda that was being claimed by the rioters. There is another thread on this site that goes into detail. I brought it up as a counter argument to the OP who suggests on the actions of one Brit that somehow all brits should be sent back while dozens of Poles in the UK every week prove they're no angels in the UK, seeing his argument is to extrapolate one Brit as representative of all Brits and too dull to see this as the act of one violent individual.

It should be pointed out (as was done on several previous threads), that in terms overall crime compared to the native population of Britain Poles commit less crime per capita than do the locals.

Any links? Seeing how I've had to backup every statement you should do the same. Anything to suggest that this is not the same in reverse for Brits in Poland?

Yes - Polish police officers are very often liars. I wouldn't even accept a confession if it wasn't made in the presence of a lawyer and if the accused is a foreign citizen, in the presence of somebody from the embassy.

Rioters from Jamaica represented the largest group of foreign inmates, followed by Somali and Polish offenders. The list also included those from Colombia, Iraq, Congo, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.

That's amazing. I wonder why?
