  • according to a news article i saw we have more police now than ever yet crime still continues to rise, nothing to do with lack of policing more like where they are pushing their energy, time and resources such as speed traps rather than looking at real crime, from what i heard they could reduce the staff by 70,000 without much effect on crime.

  • The police seem to be more bothered about about thought-crimes than real crimes. Oh and bogus speeding offences of course.

    So these 34,000 staff will be no great loss.

    Should start going the Saudi route, that should help cut crime. This country is a joke. So what if killing murderers, rapists and paedos doesn’t deter new offenders offending (that’s the supposed reason it isn’t worth doing)? It certainly stops those that caught from doing it again and it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than the 50k a year to house the scum, e.g. one, sword, one cloth to wipe the sword, one hose to clean up, one cardboard coffin and a hole in the ground.

    They label that sort of justice barbaric. They sentenced a paedophile ring in the UK the other day, they all got 1 to 2 years each, it was hailed by the police and the judge as a success?! That’s what call barbaric, a country that doesn’t put animals like that, that ruin lives, to death. I’d happily carry out the execution, with a hammer.

  • general congreve – my own personal view is that crime in the UK is alongside the housing market seen as a major prop for the UK economy – indeed over the years it has become a significant industry and has many vested interests. High crime of a broad spread supports Police, judges, probation service, prison service, court services, solicitors, barristers, security companies, bio-metric development companies, security camera comanies, alarm companies, Fire service…. the list is almost endless, now potentially knock down crime in the way you suggest Saudi/Singapore style and you would have a lot of people making a lot less money/profit and looking for alternative employment which in this day and age is difficult to find.

    ……a golden hammer no doubt. 🙂

    ‘The concept of ‘Thou Shalt not Kill’ is a difficult rule to defend when the punishment for non adhereance is death. Not suggesting that there arn’t those worthy of such punishment of course, its just difficult to hold the moral high ground once you start lopping off limbs as punishment. Moreover, the police have been known to make more than the odd mistake when identifying their man and often don’t seem to realise the error during the same decade as the arrest.
