The % of trouble makers in the traveller community is very high. Probably half of the travellers that have come to my home town, have robbed and ran riot. I have lost count of the time that travellers have kicked off in the pub, people have just been worn down by the constant thuggery from a large segment of the traveller population. I presume many travellers would feel the exact same way as most of us here would.I am not shocked but sickened by some of the unsavoury comments that have been made here.
I teach traveller teens and I'm involved in traveller's associations which seek to find employment for members of this community.
