Spectacularly Inappropriate Timing, PlodFed!

Victims of crime are suffering a poorer service because of police budget cuts, a survey of detectives indicates.

Not only do the results published on Monday highlight the continuing pressure officers are under, they show that detectives believe victims and witnesses of crime are getting a sub-standard level of service as a result, the Police Federation of England and Wales said.

Oh noes! Teh awful Tory cutz! Whatever shall the poor cops do?

Well, how about a bit of triage?

Make sure your reduced resources (because thanks to Labour’s profligacy with the Treasury, reductions are the order of the day for everyone, and you’re not special) go towards real crime & real victims, and not the latest politically correct nonsense.

And especially not in expanding your repertoire by taking a simple domestic dispute and creating more work for yourselves because there’s a new law you are just itching to try out, no matter how utterly foolhardy it makes you appear.

Because otherwise, the members of the public who would naturally support you in this may well ask ‘Hang on! No money or time, yet somehow always plenty for this load of old fanny? Are you pulling our chain?’

And….you know what? They’d be right to do so…

    Well done for finding two stories that are nowhere near the norm and using it to bash all of us.I didn’t see you blogging about the recent bravery awards.
    PS the porn story was 2009,must be some newer ones than that to make your point? 😯

      “I didn’t see you blogging about the recent bravery awards.”

      My favourite is Demolition Yob, who without fear of a physical ‘going over’ from the geriatric owners of a stationary Range Rover, jumped on the bodywork to pimp it Plodgang style.

        Melvin, he was hardly geriatric.He was a serial offender who actually got convicted at court.But don’t let the facts get in the way of your boring and repetitive lies.

          “But don’t let the facts get in the way of your boring and repetitive lies.”
          Mr Whatley, the septuagenarian driver, has no criminal record; is a registered disabled person and constitutes no physical threat whatsoever. The convictions against this pensioner were overturned in the Court of Appeal when it was discovered that PC Jonathan Ellis, the young, cowardly ‘Demolition Yob’, was a serial liar. PC Ellis’ dishonesty extended to a conviction by Gwent Magistrates for the theft of £80 cash from a detainee’s purse.

          I do hope this PlodFed survey included the ‘stitch-up’ of Mr Whatley, for he was also a victim of crime and suffered appalling service as a result of untruthful, ‘out of control’ police.

            Melvin,even a stupid plod like me can use google and check these “facts” you have published.
            PC Ellis was involved in a case with Whatley in 2004.Ellis accused Whatley of assault after a traffic incident (sound familiar?).But in the meantime Ellis got arrested and convicted for stealing cash,so he was not the same officer years later who smashed the windscreen of the driver in question.In your excitement to smear the police you have got two incidents mixed up.His 2004 conviction was over turned-not because he was found innocent but because the PC was a thieving idiot.His later conviction regarding his driving where his screen got smashed was upheld.
            As for him not having a criminal record-how do you know that?
            Please reply soon,not in Latin.

              Latin? With apologies to Persius, ‘an empty cask is easily rolled’.

                Tumbleweed Melvin………..once again you have put a “clever” answer without debating the points I have posted.Who is the empty cask?
                Nice day for cutting grass though.

    I ate a pork sausage yesterday. I hope that is found to be offensive by some Muslim somewhere. Daft bloody cops.

      Very offensive, especially if it was kosher.

    In Dorset, the feds are always moaning about a lack of money, but they seem to have enough to run a helicopter all year around.

    I guess you pick your battles when it comes to cuts…
