(i still havent got the hang of using the quotes so please bear with me and i will address some of you "valid" points that you made)
I fully agree with you when you say:
"'We' the gen public don't like paying the level of taxes necessary to do a proper job......and the job currently being funded costs a fortune as
We both know that there is NOTHING that will stop crime 100% but i think that the level of "tools" given to Authorities should be capped.
Eventually and we have seen this in the past, these "tools" will almost certainly fall into the hands of the criminal underworld, and then what?
You said :
I could show you people convinced the British Police went past the point of proper accountability long long ago.
Sminkey mate , you do NOT have to go any further with that , i know this from personal experience.
IMO you are 100% correct on that mate.
Like i said in my previous post, the Authorities have the technology to be able to perform any form of random check on any person (espeically if
travelling in a car) without the need to fingerprint an individual to accertain the said persons identity.
You righly stated that in that particular report 60% of people stopped, failed to give the police their correct ID, whilst that may sound quiet
alarming to some, but what the report declined to say was "what the total number of the 60% who declined to give their true ID were actualy convicted
of a crime or had been wanted for an outstanding warrent of some sort?
So for arguements sake lets say out of the 60% , 50 % of those were actualy wanted criminals, that means at the least , there is 10% of these persons
who would now have their fingerprints stored on BB database, IMO not vey fair for the law abiding citizen.
Its a sad but true fact that you dont see any Police on the street anymore, "the local bobby doing his rounds", the Police stations want to shut
their doors when it gets dark? work that one out....its not all about money?
You know my feelings on BB, but that aside, i would prefer to see more police on the streets making our neighbourhoods safe, than to see CCTV on every
Basically IMO the cameras DO NOT work! they do NOT stop the crime in the first place because there is no-one physically there to stop them from
commiting said crime.
Also when they have got a suspect on CCTV commiting a crime, certain CCTV cannot be used as evidence in court.
Again i know this from personal experience.
But im sure the debate will carry on mate lol
