Nor me it's the one thing that hate the most and is at the root of minority crime
but to put it at it's very least, it must be likely to discourage some people.
Without doubt,and whilst a police force's official stand on the the matter maybe stated as policy,the actions of officers on the beat can be a different thing altogther,especially if they're undermanned and run off their feet*.
If there were as much action as politrickal promises minority groups might feel a little safer on the streets IMHO.
* during the inquest into my grandaughter's death one of the witnesses,a young man who was 17 at the time,had two Wigan based police officers visit him on a building site in central Liverpool to sign a statement(there was no hurry it was a week after the incident),much to the coroner's annoyance(who asked that their Chief Superintendent attend so he could give her a rollocking openly in the hearing and tell to see that it dodn't happen again)
It seem's police officers aren't run off the feet all the time .
