Curly suspected of being a paedophile

'Was Curly suspected of being a paedophile - he thought so'

'Was Curly suspected of being a paedophile - he thought so'

It seems that local part time blogger Graham Rigg, aka Curly’s photography habit got him into a spot of bother a while back and ended up with him being pulled over and spoken to by the police after they received a 999 call from a worried member of the public.

The incident made the local press after he contacted them, and was picked up by the Daily Telegraph. CLICK HERE  to read the article in full.

This is what the The Fat Mackem Hobbit had to say about the incident,

‘It became clear that they suspected me of being a paedophile just because I was taking pictures in public” 

He also questioned the right of the police to investigate a complaint made by a member of the public and said, 

“Even if I had been taking pictures in a public park, what gives them the right to track me across town on CCTV and fly into full emergency mode?”

According to the Hobbit

” The notion of presumed innocence seems to have disappeared. So has the notion of neighbourliness – everyone seems to be living with this irrational fear of paedophiles and terrorists.”

Whatever is the world coming to?

    What’s the matter with you?
    Got no politicians to have a pop at today?
    You really are a sick chimp.

    It is truly sad when the public is scared of a man with a camera. Society lets the truly bad people win when they live in fear … I have followed Curly’s photography for several years. He is very talented and has provided a service to South Shields. Sharing positive images, with people around the world, brings different cultures closer together in understanding and appreciation.

    Also, I personally think your post is irresponsible. I request you delete the post.

    Thanks for giving my request consideration.

    AW,I thought Curly was a politician? At least that’s what he’d have us believe if you read some of the shite he writes. Once a year he toys with the idea of entering the political arena but he’s scared shitless at the prospect of rejection, he can’t handle being labelled a loser.

    You and your Independent fans and followers have no moral values at all, your arguments stink and you are only interested in causing personal damage. What did you ever do to promote the best picture for South Shields you witless idiot?

    This website belongs where my dad used to put The Sun, ripped up into small sheets, and hung on a nail on the back of the netty door. That’s about your only use.

    So what if a guy Is taking photos in the town that he lives in – does that mean that everyone who does this is a pedo cos if it is then f*ck me, Shields and every other town/city must be crawling in them!!

    So what happened exactly? Was he taking photos and some people seen him or where included in the distance in his pics – you should see the majority of my photos, they have kids, adults, pets, etc in the background – what does that make me??

    I personally think this is a shocking thing to post about someone when you have no concrete evidence – this is what wrecks peoples lives – how would you like it??

    From the article that you linked to

    The need for heightened security in public places appears to have spawned an unsavoury form of legitimised bullying and fear – and at the moment it’s the humble weekend snapper who is bearing the brunt. ‘I am sympathetic to the need for greater vigilance these days,’ says Louis Berk. ‘But singling out amateur photographers seems a bit unfair. To be honest, most of us are just sad anoraks who are no threat to anyone!’

    You seem happy to carry on suggesting that this man is up to no good, I suggest you look at yourself first and put yourself in his shoes.

    Your behaviour in twice posting this issue (I saw that you mentioned it in comments in another thread) shows that you simply dislike this person. That is simply reprehensible and you know it.

    Obviously most of you haven’t read the post, if you had you would see that the monkey man hasn’t made any accusations all he/she has done is repeat what happened to Mr Rigg. Try clicking on the link provided and read the article, it might help.

    One of the most important things I found out about colon cleaning is you MUST juice fact for 3-5 days to get the OLD stuff out of your system. Of course clear the fasting with your doctor first.

    The Monkey quite plainly repeated the suggestions that a commenter made in another post, and my mate says his comments haven’t been posted. What does that tell you.

    Serious questions need to be asked, not about the behaviour of Mr Rigg, but that of our local authority CCTV operators. This is not public protection but surveillance.

    I have always enjoyed reading your blog and your attacks on local politicians but your article about Curly has disgusted me. He is a personel friend of mine and I know him as a kind loving father to his two young children.I have thought for a while that some of your comments about politicians have been below the belt, but I have always thought they were fair game because of what they were doing to the town. But it sickens me when you have a go at a man who has done so much for the town in his daily pictures that are seen all over the world. I will no longer bother reading your blog and can only hope that some one has the decency to name you and we will all be able to read about your court case.

    ffs monkey, change the fucken title, what if some idiot who is just as ignorant as you reads your headline but not the link to the news story, you may well be responsible for any physical attacks that may occur, and what if the news story itself becomes unavailable, ignorant idiots like you may take your title at face value…

    grow a fucken brain and use some common sense, change your title ya fucken dickhead.

    Good point. Just as no-one has alleged that you do with chickens.

    i read the post, but how many wont ?
    and how many people might just read the headline and think that curly is a pedophile ?

    the heading is irresponsible and should be changed, if curly should come to physical harm over this because some idiot didn’t read the story and took the headline at face value, then fuckwit monkey should be held responsible as well, wake up to yourself monkey, grow a fucken’ brain.

    The daily telegraph didn’t think it was defamatory when it published the original article.

    Seems like a case of police paranoia( it’s not against the law to take photos) and old mother monkey is just a shit stirer with a big chip on it’s shoulder against this person. Why not mention some of the others that have been pinched by the coppers for the same thing? Why single out this guy?

    Did the monkey say it was against the law Jedd?

    If I were Mr. Rigg I would have taken legal advice a long time ago, I hope he has. Marvin above points out that for many people the headline is the story and once they’ve read that then they’ve made their mind up regardless of reading the rest or not.

    If you had any feeling at all for the bloke and his family you would show some common decency and change your headline, unless you wish to attempt to defame him and damage his reputation and standing. By repeating in an earlier post that all he ever does is take pictures of ****, I suggest that your intentions are indeed to cause personal damage Mr. Monkey.

    I may not always agree with people’s political persuasions but this type of posting by you is little better than the smears and crap that McBride and Draper tried to spew out from the Labour Party, and as Gordon Brown has had to reluctantly apologise for it, then I think that you ought to also.

    In fact, don’t bother changing the headline just remove the post altogether and save your own skin while you can
