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?
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.
-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.
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
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..........
