Police tied up with paperwork, report says
"Figures released as part of a review of the performance of the 43 forces in England and Wales show that the Home Office is as far away as ever from achieving its much-vaunted target of reducing time spent filling in forms and dealing with administration, and "effectively freeing up 12,000 officers for the front line".
It had an overall poor grade for "protecting vulnerable people" - a key area, according to Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC), which carried out the assessments - though within that category it was "fair" in dealing with child abuse, missing persons and "public protection""
Obviously, certain high ranking police officers were quick to say that two-thirds of the police forces working hours are plenty to uphold the law, in the country were drug dealers dress up as scooby doo, schools are becoming an increasingly violent environment for children, police officers are too wrapped up in red tape to do their job in the time they actually *can* go out and make a difference. And when they actually do get somebody thrown in the can, they'll be calling the civilian population to help find the crook that escapes. Because of all the violence associated with the drug culture (no, not gun culture) parents are going out buying drugs for their children to keep them from mingling with the dealers themselves too much for Christs sakes! (I'm rejoiced to see they're not throwing her in jail, but that's a different issue)
You know what? Maybe you should place even more cameras and microphones, keep persecuting people for possessing books. Eventually, all the measures that haven't paid off anywhere in the past will start working (/sarcasm)
