Based on the admission by a senior policeman (BBC LINK) that some people turn to 'community fixers' rather than the police, I got to wondering how many people would still prefer Plod over the local Big Man?

Another Police thread. I thought this was an Army site.

Still with hands tied by red tape and human rights and a crap legal system the above does have merit. Be careful though once beholden......

When my father died some ba****** tried to steal his ladders from the yard.

A couple of weeks later my mother was disturbed in her sleep by voices outside the house.

My brother nicknamed, 'The Bull' went to every pub and told all therein, "If anyone tries to steal from my mother again, I will have you, you and you - whether you did it or not."

End of crime wave.

As much as the old bill gets a slating, I'd still go for them everytime. Maybe I'm fortunate in not living in a shitehole where a local hardnut is seen as the authority. I reckon the police get a raw deal these days, governed and controlled by too much red tape, paperwork and policies dreamed up by cnuts.

-Very relevant when I'm driving.

-Not relevant at all when on foot, after all I cant get done for speeding, tax, insurance, eating, talking on the phone, picking my nose, (though I expect some new law to soon to make all of the above illegal soon).

Sorry, but I have no trust or faith in the police, when it comes to mr average.

I can only applaud this. It is right on so many fronts.

For your family - End of matter (and i bet your brother felt good).

Taxpayer - No endless police time and money wasted.

Filth - No paper work and crime figures to complete

Scrote Bags - Know where they stand.

Wouldn't even know who to approach!

Agreed, too many police threads appearing, and the poll is pretty much irrelevant.

Much as I dislike the way the police (generally their management) do things, it's still better than the way the local scum do things and a reasonable second best to sorting out your own problems the "proper" way.

Mind you, if it keeps the old bill away from taking random pot shots at Brazilians or hanging around my doorstep begging to fill up my Armitage Shanks, then I'm all in favour of bunging them some work to do. I heard they really enjoy following up with the paperwork, gives 'em a chance to hang around the station posting on ARRSE :twisted:

No, the iPod concerned was already physically damaged, reportedly (at that time) beyond economic repair, against which it was presumably insured

Unless, of course, dropping something that was (reportedly) damaged beyond repair into a bath full of water makes it even more damaged and therefore even more unrepairable 8O

That's why there may be too many police threads and too many mistakes being made, too many assumptions being made

Obtaining property by deception indeed, and without any mens rea or tangible motive!

CNUT yourself

And yet you are advocating and promoting Section 15 Theft Act 1968 offences with regard to Ipods.

Cnut.
S15 Theft Act 68, been supercede by the Fraud Act 2006, much simpler, but then again need some detail about what you r talking about. Is Pyro advocating 'pirating' music. In which case I think this would come under copyright laws.
the only way you can place music on ipod mp3 etc is if you paid for the track or you own the original cd and are 'backing' it up..........

Read and learn, best to rely on something authoritative rather than a wiki

Try the cps: http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/section8/chapter_a.html

Total absence of mens rea: No financial loss to another: the insurance company would be as liable if the item were broken beyond repair.

Wasn'tt advocating piracy,, which is a civil offence under the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988.

Feck me, for someone who uses the name of an outlaw, you sure know stuff all about fundamental criminal law. Best get back on topic

Checked, ah yes clear deception there and if the third party did it pyro could still be liable---aid, abet, counsel or procure....better still a nice little conspiracy to defraud.... :wink:

Read the whole thread.

Man claims iPod is damaged beyond repair, therefore his insurance (if he has any) is liable. Dropping it in the bath makes it no less repairable, by definition it was purportedly beyond repair.

Therefore no (additional) loss to insurers, no additional gain to individual, therefore no mens rea, therefore no crime, therefore no conspiracy. :wink:
