When they were forces they provided a service. Now they are services they appear to provide nothing but overreaction (force)

Discuss!

In my view they are a little heavy handed against the easy targets and seem to shy away from the harder tasks. But I am just a bit fed up with the whole political thing at the moment

None of above!

Hmmm, service.

Linky

In her day job she was a dedicated uniformed public servant in her role as WPC Victoria Thorne.

But in her other guise, it is alleged, she offered services of a far more personal nature - as a £100-an-hour, high-class call girl.

you silly billy, what a can of worms you've opened..
I've been in the Met for 18 years.over that period of time, and largely due to Political correctness, so called health and safety, out of court payments, spineless senior officers and society being made up of twits refusing to take responsibility for their actions, it has changed beyond recognition.
The entry standards are pisss poor, you don't even have to speak English.
Everyone is terrified of being called racist/sexist/exlusionary in some manner, and as a direct consequence all the decent, robust sensible coppers have either left or gone to internal specialist jobs where they stay away from the public. I am one of them. The job is beyond repair until we go back to the days where we were a "force" and ruled the streets by fear and physical presence so that normal law abiding people could walk safely at night or during the day, an nobody pilloried us for dishing out a bit of well deserved discipline once in a while.
Here endeth the lesson.

i know the police are inafective, and more each day, when i was in the mob i used to think they were all right but since leaving iv had a couple of run ins with them, one when i was doing a wedding disco for a coulpe they buggered off without paying and the police did,nt want to know said it was a civil matter, turns out they were pickey family, another time they stopped my car saying it had no insurance, i showed them my certificate but apperently the insuranse company haddent transfered my insurance from my other car, and i was still paying the direct debit, they said they no longer have discretion, so i had to pay £150 to get my car back, this is still pendidng, although i found out they might of driven my car to the pound and not uplifted like they said, so its ok for a policeman to drive your car 20 miles but you cant drive it a mile home. tossers may the y have the shits for a year..

Indeed, he sounds like the type best kept away from the public.

Remember, if you rule by fear those who would have let you rule by admiration and respect (i.e. 90%) will have neither for you.
There endeth your legitimacy.

eeermmmm... because that's exactly what it was, a civil matter over an unpaid debt. The OB aren't debt collectors you know.

It is, as the OB are insured to drive any vehicle that they have a legal right to. For example, moving a car that wasn't technically insured.

They also can't help with poor spelling either.

I feel sorry for most coppers. Overmanaged and poorly led they are a target for every lefty and outrage bus driver.

I wouldn't want to do the job.

At least they are providing a service to some tealeaves:

http://inspectorgadget.wordpress.com/2009/01/18/police-notice-please-steal-from-this-car/

You absolutely could not make this up.

In ‘the old days’ it was a relatively risky business; stealing from parked cars.

The thief had to walk down a particular street and try the door handles of every car until he got lucky, or alternatively, glance into each vehicle until he saw something of value to steal. This was the hard part because you stick out when you are trying door handles or staring into the back of every vehicle in a street.

So now to Ruralshire in 2009. We have decided to make the hard part easy. We do this by sending Neighbourhood Police Officers and PCSO’s to areas of high vehicle crime and asking them to walk down the street identifying the vulnerable vehicles. When they have done this, they attach a yellow sticker to the windscreen informing the owner (when they return) that there is some kind of insecurity. We even tick a box telling the owner how the vehicle is insecure.

This marks out the vulnerable cars for thieves and helpfully informs them how to proceed without any of that pesky ‘having to furtively look this way and that’ which used to mark them out as suspicious.

This is quite the maddest scheme in British Policing, and I guess if nothing else, we should congratulate the inventors for that; let’s face it, there is a lot of competition.

Gadget Note: Next, we plan to simply come into your house, take your things, drive down to The Swamp and give them to Kylie and Wayne.

I read that as meaning that criminals were afraid of the police (which they bloody should be) and a police officer could give a wayward youth a clip round the ear; these days you have teenagers following PCSOs taking the mickey, the police aren't a deterrent, criminals have lots of rights which aren't dependent on their responsibilities. Well said Creepy :lol:

I assume that the chances of that happening are at best very remote.
Bad news follows?
