Violence on the streets of Aberdeen, Scotland

By | January 16, 2009

As someone who was almost attacked in Aberdeen (and had only been walking on the street at the time), I can tell you that Aberdeen is not a safe city to walk around in at night for either man or woman. Simply saying that attacks are not uncommon is an understatement that beggars belief.

The combination of alcohol, youth and stupidity fuels much of the violence. I just wonder how many other victims, would-be victims, there have to be before the local council actually does anything.

There have been numerous attacks in Aberdeen: 2 gentlemen were attacked on their way to the Casino, a lady was attacked in the high street, a quick look through Google turned up other attacks.  What is going on in Aberdeen?
