Wow a Police response!
In my rural UK county (roughly 2,500 km²) there are 4 Police Officers (covering 2 shifts) for the rural areas (more in the towns). Except when there is anything going on in the towns; i.e. Bank Holidays, Friday nights, etc. Then the rural officers are also called into town!
The rural officers will freely admit to this, but the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (politician who gets elected in a vote that single figure percentage of population take part in) just spouts bo**ocks and will not answer questions about it. He just boasts about all the Police and civilian staff he has. That's 5 times more than the 1950's when there was a Bobby lived in the Police House in each village and policing was personal!
Lambs are being strung up in trees and butchered using Halal techniques in the fields in front of the rest of the flock. The farmers ring the Police and are told that "no-one is available at the moment. Please note down this scene of crime number. And don't challenge them with your shotgun."
One lot did get caught though. The farmer let down all the tires on their refrigerated van. The stupid sods rang that in as a racially motivated crime and a rapid response unit was sent from the town. (Yes, that is a priority set by the PFCC.) The farmer gave himself up to the Police and asked them to look into the back of the van!
UK Police under PFCC/PCC directorship are just not fit for purpose!
Let the Police get on with their jobs and politicians f*ck-off!
