UK Police Going to Stop Investigating Minor Crimes

Post by Jered » Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:31 am

Britain’s biggest police force will not investigate crimes including public order offences, shoplifting and low-level assaults if officers are required to look at CCTV for more than 20 minutes, The Times has learnt.
Well, that's nice.
The avalanche has already started. It is too late for the pebbles to vote.

Where some see a problem, I see opportunity! :lol:
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

GO FOR IT!!! Start your own low-level PI firm to handle these types of calls - and bill the government!!
POLITICIANS & DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON

A person properly schooled in right and wrong is safe with any weapon. A person with no idea of good and evil is unsafe with a knitting needle, or the cap from a ballpoint pen.

I remain pessimistic given the way BATF and the anti gun crowd have become tape worms in the guts of the Republic. - toad

The inverse of broken windows policing.

I wonder what's going to happen.

numerous offences such as vandalism, vehicle crime and fuel theft will not be pursued if the cost of the damage or amount taken is less than £50.
Free pass.

I also wonder how much CCTV camera vandalism will increase right before crimes that won't be investigated with more than 20 minutes of CCTV review.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D
