How much money, through equipment and personnel, is tasked to catch people doing a few km/h over the speed limit?
How many resources are abused through targeting people who might chuff on the odd joint now and again?
As far as I can see this story is a direct product of the misuse of the resources currently available to the police. And the ultimate culprits of that are, surprise surprise, politicians.
No money in putting away sex offenders. Moving violations, parking violations, drug busts, etc. produce revenue.
But with those crimes come solutions. Self driving cars. Legalize drugs.
What's to be done with child molesters? Castration?

Do people that have murdered people, or violently assaulted people , or committed armed robbery, or drug dealers have to register and be monitored? No they don't , the easy boogeyman are sex offenders when in actuality the recidivism rate among sex offenders is the lowest of any other crime.
KAZAKHSTAN is set to begin chemically castrating convicted paedophiles. A sex attacker in the Turkestan region is about to undergo an injection supervised by the country’s health ministry, officials announced. The forcible castration is punishment for being found guilty of paedophilia in April 2016, The Sun reports.
President Nursultan Nazarbayev has allocated $AU37,200 for some 2000 injections on men who commit child abuse attacks this year. Deputy health minister Lyazat Aktayeva said: “At the moment there has been one request for chemical castration in accordance with a court ruling.” The identity of the paedophile has not been revealed. Kazakhstan introduced a new law on chemical castration at the start of this year.
“Funds have been allocated for more than 2000 injections,” Ms Aktayeva said. When the law was passed Senator Byrganym Aitimova said that castration would be “temporary”, consisting of a “one-time injection” based on “the necessity of preventing the man from (committing) sexual violence”
