The robbery occurred on Thursday at 6.50pm, just before the 7pm service.Detective Sergeant Paul Langley of Accrington Police said Rev Leech accepted that it was opportunistic crime and that she wasn’t ‘targeted’ because of her church connections.
Would it matter if that was the case, then? Would it make things better for her, as a victim of crime, or worse? Would it make things better for the police, or worse?
What’s the unspoken fear here, that the police are so careful to avoid?
