harlow is becoming very much like London and the people who have lived here for many years are feeling safe in their own town and it needs to stop, more police cctv security whatever is needed to keep the communities safe especially the children, while the government force us to love amongst criminals that even they have no idea of who they are. people are getting worried and annoyed with our children being targeted and it has to stop NOW.

The police won’t do anything because they are too lazy to investigate and are most likely waiting for there McDonald’s while this is going on!
