Cut The Filth

Recommended Posts

BBC is reporting:

The number of police officers is to be cut, claims the Police Federation. More soon.

EDIT: added 'Don't' to topic title after John Reid denies the number of police officers is to be cut.

EDIT2: removed 'Don't' from title as Read only says "its not his view".

That makes perfect sense. More tax = less police. Even an idiot could see the logic there!

It does make sense. The drop in the number of police officers will be more than matched by the creation of a new government authority charged with ensuring that people do not use pictures of unclothed people or parts of their anatomy as avatars.

Since when did they do any work?

Whilst some may be lazy (like in any profession), its a very stressful and demanding job whereby the average response PC is batted about pillar to post whilst having a mountain of paperwork to deal with.

You obviously didnt see the documentary on the fuzz a couple of weeks ago? Too lazy to answer emergency calls even when a woman is being attacked possibly raped and always in the canteen, heck they even have their own word for it... 'mealing' I think it was. :rolleyes:

I did see it and as an officer, i was shocked believe me. I wish i had time to eat. Not one officer i know in he West Mids would neglect their duty and ignore an immediate shout. Leicestershire constab is obviously a different world.

Should we go back to mob rule and lynch mobs? It would be cheaper, plus there's no one to sue.

Here's a better idea: let's cut out vast swathes of ******** laws and let the police concentrate on deterring and clearing up real crimes.

Even better, let's sack them all and hire private security instead. At least they'll know who's paying their wages and won't shrug their shoulders when your house gets burgled.

Perhaps we'll be getting some Bulgarian plod in their place? :unsure:

There are still quite a few unemployed ex E German Stasi looking for work--they would be a good fit for NuLabour's approach to justice. Boost the leather trade in the W Midlands with all those nice shiny black boots needed. <_<

On an entirely unrelated note, are the police still questioning and arresting people over that little cash-for-peerages thing?

My guess is that they are going through the motions. No way are TB, GB or Jubba going to be affected--although TB might try to set GB up and he is the money man.

Yeah right.

I know what it is like in the force. While there are some good officers, most of them would not stand a hope in hell of earning the money they take home in the force out in the real world.

Also, while some work hard, a lot do as little as possible, avoiding calls where possible (except ones they deem to be exciting, etc)

That’s never happened before, and don’t believe it’s because of forces joining together crap.

we are in serious sh!t. :ph34r::ph34r::ph34r:

My Dad was a copper through the 80's (Handsworth and miners riots etc...) and I don't ever remember his job being at risk. Although I do remember him struggling to pay the mortgage.

The government hardly control the streets of many areas as it is. Unless it's to haul a lone protester from Parliament Square.

Can't help but wonder whether this is just the police "union" trying to put the government under some pressure. But then why merge police forces if you didn't want to make cuts somewhere?

If the average bobby on the street does nothing but man speed cameras, eat in cafes instead of answering emergency calls, cannot stop & search suspects as they like according to creed & colour, don't even bother to investigate burglaries or minor drug crime, cannot act on first offences of mugging or violence, cannot even move on a group of teenagers causing a nuisance & spend more time doing paperwork than anything else, doesn't it make perfectly good economic sense to replace them with NMW community officers who also cannot do anything.

Seems hardly worth paying top dollar to train them.

Anybody can walk the streets wearing yellow jackets no effect on the criminal fraternity.

All we really need is a few specialists for when the NMW walkers spot a bit of bother.......

few thugs with batons, some with guns, some with fast cars, that should do it.

I actually have deepest sympathy & admiration for the majority of police officers, in all walks of their profession. It's a crappy job, definitely a vocation.

But economically speaking.......

Scant evidence of this in South Yorkshire.

Whilst some may be lazy (like in any profession), its a very stressful and demanding job whereby the average response PC is batted about pillar to post whilst having a mountain of paperwork to deal with.

This is one of the main problems with modern policing, too many bloody forms.

You obviously didnt see the documentary on the fuzz a couple of weeks ago? Too lazy to answer emergency calls even when a woman is being attacked possibly raped and always in the canteen, heck they even have their own word for it... 'mealing' I think it was. :rolleyes:

This sounds about right.

Bad news for Krispy Kreme and Starbucks...

:lol:

I did see it and as an officer, i was shocked believe me. I wish i had time to eat. Not one officer i know in he West Mids would neglect their duty and ignore an immediate shout. Leicestershire constab is obviously a different world.

I often feel that the police live in a different world to the majority of us. One that doesn't seem to extend beyond the police HQ or the inside of their cars.

Maybe this is NuLab's plan all along, get us so fed up with useless plods that we'll welcome the ex-Stasi patrolling the streets (probably as part of some private company, meaning we'll be paying twice for the service)
