The trouble is there are too many of them. Just lately Hoglands park with the weather has got a bit out of control, every evening it is packed with young people drinking in groups you can smell drugs being used but you never see a policeman anywhere.
Last week I walked through hoglands about 9.30 and a black youth approached me and asked for a pound saying it was for bus fare, I pointed out that he was sitting on a bicycle and he said it was a friends.
When I walked away he gave me a load of abuse and said I was a racist,there were at least 5 or 6 of them, luckily I am a big guy so it didnt go any further, but some patrols are definitely needed in this area.

Jesus, you were lucky, anything could have happened to you. I haven't walked through that park or any of the Southampton parks for years, so aware that whilst you're strolling through enjoying them, they're a haven for attack, especially Hoglands.

Try walking through Palmerston Park on a sunny weekend afternoon. You can be sure to see groups of people (often eastern european) drinking on the benchs, a number of times I have seen them fighting between themselves. This can be scary for families with their children who are just trying to enjoy the park. The police do nothing about it. It really brings the place down.
