Police To Let Burglars And Other Riff-Raff Go Free

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Not_Whistlin_Dixie, Apr 5, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Burglars will be allowed to escape without punishment under new instructions sent to all police forces. Police have been told they can let them off the threat of a court appearance and instead allow them to go with a caution.
    The same leniency will be shown to criminals responsible for more than 60 other different offences, ranging from arson through vandalism to sex with underage girls.

    ...

    And a string of crimes including common assault, threatening behaviour, sex with an underage girl or boy, and taking a car without its owner's consent, should normally be dealt with by a caution, the circular said.

    Perpetrators of truly serious crimes -- such as disparaging homosexuality, exhibiting a black "golliwog" doll, wearing a T-shirt that insults the prime minister, or fox hunting -- will still be subject to arrest under the new dispensation.
     
  2. what a joke the person who wrote that memo should be hung and then so should the next 20 people commiting each those crimes and I bet you would see a reduction in crime!
     
  3. it just makes you laugh because the soldiers who didn't really do anything wrong to criminal iraqies got a year or two in prision for volenteering to help their country and these pricks don't do anything with their lives and take the PISS!

    Their "Neasdon Police Station Log" has clearly been read by the powers-that-be and taken as a suggestion.

  10. FFS - when I read this, I had to check it had'nt been posted on April 1st.
    They should combine all UK police forces into one. Then hire Ruldoph Giullani to run it.
     
  11. Build more prisons, employ more ex-squaddies as prison officers, kick out anyone from the country who is a waste of resources! - Sorted!

    I don't realise why you are all surprised at this 8O Crimes against people and bringing the turd to court costs money. If the crime is not against the government then why should they be brought to 'justice'.

    Remember the police are overstretched in removing pensioners who heckle Jack Straw (what a straw-man!) or stand in Whitehall reading out names of British soldiers killed in operations started by - yup your right.
     
  14. I dont know what all the excitement is about, after all aint that what the CPS do already, fail to bring people to court?
