Re: Scumbags in pubs

I had a similar experience, a Swiss man attacked me from behind and lightly broke my shoulder bone. I went to the local police who said "Don't bother, you won't get anywhere"
I then went on to see the doctor for the X-Ray and treatment.

Doctor told me I must insist on lodging a complaint with the police. Otherwise the next time he attacks anyone he can still claim it is his first offence. I went back to the police and persuaded them to accept my complaint, and then they took down the details. My clavicle was definitely chipped, where the arm was knocked downwards into the socket.

A week or two later we had a first hearing, he didn't arrive. Later still we were both summoned to the local Court for a second hearing. He didn't turn up, but wrote he was now working in Geneva and couldn't come (???!!)

I gave my evidence and explained that I wasn't asking for compensation as I knew the attacker was "mental" and had no money. The Judge then asked me for evidence of the attack, and I didn't have any, except a letter from the SUVA giving me 10 days sick leave. I don't know what the Judge decided, but at least I had "done my bit" and reported him.

If the group was speaking French they most likely were NOT Albanian. To me just a blunt and dull attempt by that bar-manager to make the Albanians/Kosovaris the scapegoats. Just in order to avoid having to admit that the villains most like were simply Swiss !

Just as many "witnesses" when describing a crime are suddenly fairly sure that the culprits had "an accent from ex Yugoslavia" , while they in reality only spoke Baaseltiitsch !
I better brush up on my French ,I have some Croak friends the can help me with the accent .Forget the Baasleduetsch I am a die hard Zuercher

He probably would have got his permit revoked if he wasn't Swiss!
