There was no case for me to answer. I was working in area quite legitimately and provided details of customers, dates and my general movements. I don't know whether the police corroborated this information. The police informed the complainant, who apparently said that she was unaware that I was working in the neighbourhood. The police told me to have no contact and I have not done so. Following the report to the police, she installed a cctv camera, the subject of earlier correspondence between us.
No, absolutely not! They issued no such warning to me. The 'no contact' advice was a discussion between the police, duty solicitor and me at the end of the interview; common sense really. In simple terms, avoid her and her family at all costs. If they approached me, to walk away, that kind of thing.
Did you reply to my response at 09.36 EST?
Thank you. A couple of points
1. Does it matter that the first series of pin posts did not name me specifically?
2. If I were to take this further, how do I proceed? Take a screen snapshot of the offensive pins? Make an appointment with the local police? Write to them instead?
3. I appreciate you don't have a crystal ball, but what would likely be the police process, assuming they believed there was a case to answer? An interview under caution? A retraction of the offensive pins and maybe an apology? A slap on the wrist?
Why do you not generally advise making complaints about online conduct?
