Stray bullet hits car story shot down.

Not really local to Crowborough but interesting due to the fact that it sounds so implausible.

The official Police release states...

"At about 8.15pm on Wednesday (December 12), the local man was sittting chatting with two friends, a man and a woman, all in their early twenties, in his white Mercedes in Squirrel Lane.
It is an unmarked but public road in a rural area near Magham Down, near Hailsham.

Suddenly there was a loud bang and the driver's window shattered. All three got out and ducked for cover. "

The local press has just published as a copy and paste job without actually thinking about how stupid the official version is.

Two things strike me as odd about this story

1)What were 3 people doing parked in the arse end of nowhere at 8.15pm on a winters night in a white Mercedes apart from  no good.White Mercedes/quiet track/3 people shouts "up to no good" to me

2)The windscreen breaks and you think you are being shot at-what do you do

a)Duck down behind the dash protected by the engine block and when considered safe get the hell out of there.

b)Get out of the car and duck for cover!!!!

The Police are investigating it as stray round from a deer hunter or poacher which is equally improbable given the locations lack of deer!!!.Well when I say investigating the Police have just got their pals in the press to release a statement hoping that they can stay in their warm office eating doughnuts rather than going out in the cold to try and make sense of this crock of shite story.

Given that licencing is strict on firearms it wouldnt take plod long to work out who in the area had a licence for this sort of rifle and then cross check against the local landowners.
If that doesnt turn up anything it means someone with an unlicenced firearm is trespassing on other peoples land taking pot shots at things.That is armed trespass and a serious offence but the Police dont seem interested-unless they dont believe the story they put out either.
