Police Note That Crime Happens

Efficiency in action

Corner shops are being hit by a surge in shoplifting by drug-addicted criminals as the number of stores to target are cut by the coronavirus lockdown, police chiefs have warned.

Given that the opportunities for begging are reduced yes, we’d think this fairly likely.

Police chiefs went on to point out that there’s nothing they can do about this as all their time is spent checking that legal buyers of goods remain entirely free of non-essential purchases. That’s with the minor part of their workforce that they can spare from prosecuting name calling on Twitter.

Obviously the police should stop wasting time on the bullshit and get back to work. But of course that’s what you’re saying.

In some jurisdictions, if the shoplifter or mugger were to see the inside of a jail cell, the usual black-robed culprits would be eager to hear an argument to free him so as to avoid risk of COVID.

I am always pleased by the way the police prioritise what crimes they pursue.
