St Helen Auckland man abused PCSOs after persistent police visits proved frustrating

The Advertiser Series: PCSO ABUSE: Martin Alan Brown admitted using threatening words and behaviour when he appeared at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates' Court PCSO ABUSE: Martin Alan Brown admitted using threatening words and behaviour when he appeared at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates' Court

A MAN who yelled abuse at Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) - telling them to get a “proper job” warned that he will probably be back in court if they continue to visit him.

Martin Alan Brown - who owes £1,123.64 in fines from previous offences - told Newton Aycliffe magistrates that he was frustrated at the number of times police had visited him since his prison release several years ago.

On June 2 two PCSOs visited his home on Primrose Gardens, St Helen Auckland, as part of a regular check, the court heard.

Prosecutor Ann Darwin said Brown and a woman at the address challenged them, questioning why they were there.

The pair then started swearing and shouting insults through the living room window, the court heard.

Unemployed Brown yelled at the PCSOs they were not “real officers” and told them to get a “proper job”.

Ms Darwin said the officers were particularly concerned by his bad language and abuse as there was a child in the house and several members of public in the street outside.

The 29-year-old, who represented himself, initially had nothing to say before telling magistrates he was frustrated at the number of times officers visited his home.

He said he had done nothing wrong to warrant the checks and told the bench: “I will be back in court over it.”

Chairman of the bench Margaret Cunningham told Brown, who admitted using abusive words, he should not use bad language nor act in an uncivilised way towards officers who are doing their jobs.

Brown was given a six month conditional discharge and ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge.

Is this a joke sentance!!!
Yes, that will teach him, he has already displayed his utter contempt for the law, taxpayers and authorities by telling the court he will be back, abusing state officials and refusing to pay £1,123.64 in court fines - which being jobless us taxpayers pay for anyway, and he gets a meaningless sentance!. This oxygen thief has the gaul to tell others to get a real job whilst he think its his god given right to scrounge off the state, the only bonus from this case he wasnt obviously allowed legal aid. I presume police were targeting him as he is lowlife scrounging criminal who only thinks of number 1 whilst making others lives a misery. With sentancing like this is it any wonder criminals and the anti social have zero respect for the law or anyone else.

Who are u to judge, I personally no mr brown n he is not a low life scouning criminal as u think he his, yes he was in trouble with police wen he was younger but soon turned his life around with the birth of his child. Has for scrounging off the state he does not claim any benefits at all, so is that scrounging ??! His partner works so his fines get paid by hard working money, if police weren't so idiotic n stop pestering people who live a normal life, they should b out catching real criminals who abuse kids n burgle n abuse old people. Until u know the person who r u to judge. Half if this tht write in article is false typical newspaper adding there bit to make it look worse. DONT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER!!
