Don’t investigate thefts, assaults or hit-and-runs, police told

British police forces are refusing to investigate assaults, thefts and hit-and-run car crashes, prompting growing concern about the priorities set by some chief constables, it can be revealed.

Leicestershire Police faced outright ridicule earlier this week when it emerged officers will only probe break-ins at properties with even door numbers, while failing to turn out for identical crimes at homes with odd numbers.

    Leicestershire no-longer has a police force, they have an internal state security apparatus.

    • Britain is truly fecked.

      The Leicestershire police will investigate a break in of an odd #’ed house if it was occupied by a minority. That was the item I found most interesting about the article BCF posted yesterday.

        If the victim has white privilege, then the crime does not get a “religious or racially aggravated” upgrade.

    They needs knights with swords patrolling the shire to fend off the invading hordes? The evil sheriff won’t help.

      The sheriff works for the hordes.

    In the region of Waterloo, Canada, the police will not investigate a break-in unless human life is threatened or the cost of goods stolen exceeds $5000. To deal with these issues, you must send an email to the local constabulary, and they will issue you a report number by return email that you can use with your insurance agent.

    And don’t even think of defending yourself against an armed intruder. Criminals are to be protected at all costs because they have been abused, they are poverty stricken, (fill in your excuse here…)

      The investigation of vehicular hit & run in Alberta are not worthy of the name.

    Don’t investigate thefts, assaults or hit-and-runs…but keep right on collecting your wages, benefits and pensions.

    Good grief. How to put out the welcome mat for violent criminals and tell them to have at it.

    I remember my British grandmother saying “nothing disgusts me more than a British socialist”. That was almost 50 years ago. It wasn’t until much later that I understood what she meant.

    That’s not news. Our house was broken into about 26 years ago and all the police did was give me a number over the phone to use for filling out my insurance claim.

    If they are no interested in law and order, but they are interested in policing peoples rude tweets they have become more like he Gestapo and should be disbanded.

    I suspect the problem is that all the police resources are being consumed trying to stop muslim terrorists, but to admit it would bring down the government.

      Much of the money has gone after the Police Boards have declared that they only eat fresh doughnuts, and have abolished Day Old’s.

    Somebody get plunger, that turd just won’t flush and keeps swirling the drain.
