Could we use our cardboard cut outs wearing them strategically placed around the District?
I am sure that would be a deterrent

It's all well and good using night vision to catch criminals but whats the point when the courts just slap them on the wrist and say dont do it again?

They don't get as far as the courts any more. Unless you are a murderer or a rapist you just get a caution and sent home.

See the Police phobics rise to the bait yet again!
Try this: Spot criminal doing what criminals do. Say to criminal "Hello, hello, hello! whats all this then?"
Criminal replies "I am only 15!" Check with book. No, cannot arrest 15 year old as she is a minor and therefore protected. Ask her her name and address then send her on her way.

Next Criminal is an 18 year old you have caught red handed coming out of a house with his swag bag on his back and mask still in place. clap him in irons and down to the station for processing.
First question by booking sergeant " were you on your own, PC 1? "Yes Serge!" you reply. Serge shakes head, sighs and says"Well go on then, give it a try. Bet you don't win though!"
Seven days later you walk out of the back office with your case written up for the CPS, on the sack barrow you are pulling behind you, relieved that you can get out of that stinking station and get some fresh air.

Three months later, you get a return from the "Can't prosecute service" which reads: "On page 200,782 you mis-spelt the name of the defendant. Regretfully, this looks like duplicity. Did you mean "Smyth" or "Smith?" Therefore, the case is lost and all charges will be dropped and compensation offered to the poor man you arrested.
Your Inspector also sends you an official disciplinary letter, to be inserted into your file for ever,which reads "Because of this waste of public money and our time over this obviously frivilous charge, we are left with no alternative but to suspend you from duty for 31 days without pay, and you will attend an interview with the standards offiers at the end of the suspension when, as a result of their findings, you may be terminated as a police officer!

This is all on account of solicitors who are way, way brainier than anybody in the Crown service or senior Police officers running little fairy rings around our so called justice system and getting obscenely rich in the due process!

Now, would you like to try your hands at police work? If you would, instead of throwing anonymous insults at these poor fellows, most of whom face an uncertain future (Gated communities of the rich have private security minding them. why would they want police? Only Mr average downwards need protection!) do you really think you are helping by the kind of sick comment you leave here?

As far as I am concerned the Police can use whatever they want against law breaking criminals and illegal immigrants and anyone else that cause others grief.

How lovely are you? One thing is absolutely critically the truth though! Your prejudice is far too visible for you to be taken as a learned Judge of anything.
Immature years make for immature comments. Hurry up and grow up, please.
Until you do, remember, your valuation of what you consider having worth is discounted by your insulting behaviour toward tha lady in the picture.

I could spend all day laughing about your use of words and grammar and especially spelling but that’s not really the right thing to do nor would it be a problem normally, many do publish insightful points of view here who have some degree of difficulty in this area, its your inability to be part of anything of value that is the problem which is no doubt a reflection of your life in general you SAD little man.” therefore, I will Ignore your poorly put together replies, replies of no worth, just as your worth in nothing also... Its such a shame that you feel the need to try and prove your worth, as its plain you have none to be proud of. Parranioa, is something you have in abundance though, as its free! Your personal sin bin is located here ---------> http://carroads.prob oards.com/index.cgi good luck in life, as you will need it to get anywhere near mine...
Your illiterate ramblings in all your posts seem to be slightly obsessive and with yet further attempted comments it is obvious you have had no education and are unable to spell or grasp the English language, this somewhat removes the point of commenting in the first place since its impossible to understand what it is you are saying and what point you make.
My your God grant you peace and serenity,
as your issues overcome you still.
