Police say officers are increasingly reluctant to intervene if they see crimes being committed while they are off duty, fearing they may face charges as a result of their actions..."
More details on this Bullshit!
It seems apparent now, that police management is now in total thralldom to the Liarbour sisterhood.
The police force is being managed into becoming a pussywhipped shadow of its former self. All because of a small percentage of thugs with a penchant for grubby sex and (probably nearer the mark) because of long grudges held by leftie politicos after recieving a twating during the 1981 madness and before that, the Vietnam war protests.
They are going to wind up like the police of the future in "The Demolition Man"!
But they can still issue tax invoices/traffic tickets!
