UK police resources are stretched to the breaking point as they try to deal with the ongoing jihad activity that Theresa May and Sadiq Khan are so angry at Donald Trump for pointing out. So they simply can’t deal with petty criminals anymore.
But is that really what is going on? No. It isn’t really the case that the British police simply don’t have the resources to deal with petty crime. The real problem here is that the British police forces are devoting so much of their resources to tracking down “hate crime,” i.e., online comments that Muslims dislike, that they just don’t have time to deal with actual crime: “But, with the number of arrests over ‘hateful’ comments posted online rising as much as 877 per cent in some parts of England, the Met boasting of having more than 900 specialist ‘hate crime’ investigators, and officers touring mosques to tell worshippers to report any perceived slights to their community, people have questioned whether forces are spending their resources wisely.”
The land of the Magna Carta is dead. Britain is no longer a free nation, but a sharia-enforcing corruptocracy on the way to becoming a full sharia state.
“UK: Police Letting Suspects Go And ‘Hoping For The Best,’” by Virginia Hale, Breitbart, November 25, 2017:
Police are “letting [suspects] off with a warning and hoping for the best” because they can’t cope with the scale of the crime problem, a senior officer has warned.
Since 2010, the number of custody cells has dropped by as much as 50 per cent, with further cuts planned to the suites where suspects are taken after they are picked up by police.
The reduction in custody cell numbers has seen Gloucestershire left with just one suite to cover the whole county, whilst several other counties including Cambridgeshire and Nottinghamshire have just two each.
As a result, driving a suspect to the nearest custody suite and back to the town where the arrest took place can take as long as four hours, according to Police Federation chairman Steve White, who said the cutbacks have led to “a change in the mindset of many officers not to arrest unless they absolutely have to”.
White told The Telegraph: “What is going through their mind is that ‘this person needs arresting, but there is no one left on the ground, is there going to be something else more pressing that I might have to deal with?
“So what they are doing is letting someone off with a warning and hoping for the best. Hoping for the best that person does not go on to do something terrible,” added White….
Police have blamed budget cuts for the plummeting number of arrests in Britain, with the Metropolitan Police having said cutbacks mean they can no longer look into many “low level” crimes.
But, with the number of arrests over “hateful” comments posted online rising as much as 877 per cent in some parts of England, the Met boasting of having more than 900 specialist “hate crime” investigators, and officers touring mosques to tell worshippers to report any perceived slights to their community, people have questioned whether forces are spending their resources wisely.
