  • Why the Police in the UK are losing the support of the people

    Example 1 - Police do rock all A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "All information was reviewed and it was decided that there was insufficient information to proceed with an investigation.
    "The alleged victim has been made aware. There were no arrests in this case."

      When you have a Police force who is more interested in speeding and online spats rather than real crime then they lose the right to Police

        Austerity, less boots on the ground. I hate to be fined for speeding a tad bit but i know the police dont sign up for shit like that.

        Nothing else to blame but poor budget and management.

            Agreed. No argument.

                  Not really isolated to the UK. That sentiment is rife through Australia.

                    One of my best mates is a Detective. Working oragnised crime now, but used to be a plainclothes investigator and before that was Uniform.

                    He refers to it as "catch and release". He said if he arrested person A now for say drugs, he said he would arrest him again, and again, and again as they keep getting chances.

                    In North Queensland where he used to be based, highway patrol held the drug tests, he said he would often have to let drug drivers go as highway patrol would not come out and do a test. He also said people evading police got worse and worse after they banned pursuits, he said it gave offenders the option to run knowing they would not be chased. The official line is that they catch them via DNA etc, but they don't.

                    I also have a friend who is a judge, and good guy, but as he says, you have to follow the law with offenders.

                    My point(s)
                    1. Police are hampered by the service in which they work
                    2. Magistrates are seen as soft, and sometimes are.
                    3. Even the police are annoyed at what is occuring, not just the public.

                      A mate is a rozza in Melbourne, they're getting pressured to make traffic stops on the way to jobs, to keep their KPIs up. Which just adds to his own paperwork burden, something he's not overly keen on doing.
                      He quite often rants about the magistrates, reckons they're always up for a sob story to get a defendant off/reduced sentencing.
