Cry-Baby of the Week

This week, a neighbour who mistook a bottle of Cillit Bang for a gun, and film-loving race-hate guy.

It's time to point and laugh at a couple of cry-babies again!

Cry-Baby #1: Staffordshire Police


The incident: A man in Stoke-On-Trent named Richard Jablonski used some Cillit Bang cleaning spray to clean something.

The appropriate reaction: Nothing.

The actual reaction: A neighbour who had seen Richard holding the bottle mistook it for a gun, and called the police.

This caused "at least 100" police officers to surround Richard's home, resulting in a stand-off that lasted several hours. Throughout the "siege", a portion of the estate Richard lives on, and a section of the A520 were closed off.


Upon exiting his house, Richard was arrested, and charged with possessing an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence. Unsurprisingly, the case against Richard fell apart. As a bottle of Cillit Bang and an imitation firearm capable of causing fear of violence are two very, very different things.

Cry-Baby #2: Ian Brazier

The incident: Ian Brazier got stoned and went to the cinema, only to discover that the film he wanted to watch wasn't showing :(

The appropriate reaction: Watching a different film. Or going home and downloading the film he wanted to see.

The actual reaction: Ian, who had smoked cannabis for the first time ever that morning, got so angry that his film wasn't showing that he went up behind a Muslim lady named Farhana Chughtai, and ripped off her Niqab. He ran from the scene, but was later arrested after police identified him from CCTV. He's since been charged with racially aggravated common assault by beating.

Unfortunately none of the articles specify what film he wanted to see. Based on two pieces of evidence: that he walked through a flowerbed and jumped over a wall when he arrived at court (pictured above), and that the film he wanted to see wasn't being shown in a large cinema, I'm going to guess it was that shitty Danny Dyer movie about parkour.

He faces up to two years in prison.

So who is the biggest cry-baby? Let us know in the poll below so that we can shame one of these self-serious pussies forever.

Who is the bigger cry-baby?
