After reading a great deal in defense from those of the "Police are gods" attitude, I would like to ask why, when a young person does something criminal and admits to it the "Police" at the police station seem unwilling to follow up on the offence. My step-son has wrecked a care, no one else involved, taken without consent. He has gone to the police and admitted this. We have now waited 5 days for the police to turn up and arrest him, he is now in a stressed situation and in my eyes the all singing, all dancing "Police" are taking the piss. An MP turns round to the gate operators at No 10 who force him to go via a "pedestrian gate" while pushing a bicycle and says you are nothing more than common people [PLEBS] and they take umbridge. My question, expressed badly, is this; Who the fcuking hell do the "Police" think they are? Yes they lost two beat officers, Yes they were shot, Yes they were female, yes there are only 1300000 (estimated) officers country wide BUT I understand there are at least 30000 of those that sit on there fat arrses who cant be bothered to pursue a guaranteed conviction. Consider the number of serving members of the armed forces who, although signing the dotted line, have had their lives fcuked up buy those who don't in real terms "give a sh1t" So I await the SH 1 T coming from the all singing know it all types that seem to defend the sh1t that is promoted on this site.
