In The Media » Jonathan Bullock MEP - let the police deal with real crimes, such as stabbings and robberies not 'hurt feelings'
At last some commonsense from a police chief.
Chief Constable Sara Thornton, chair of he National Police Chiefs' Council, (NPCC), has said she wants the police to 'solve more burglaries and bear down on violence before we make more records of incidents that are not crimes,' adding that she hoped the Law Commission took account of the pressures on forces before suggesting the law was changed.
She was referring to the proposal which could see misogyny and misandry becoming so-called 'hate crimes'.
Our police forces are struggling as it is with cuts and the seemingly never-ending rise in violent crime, particularly knife crimes, in our capital city and other cities and towns across the country.
Misogyny and misandry are important issues of course and must be tackled and challenged within our society but please let the police deal with real crimes, such as stabbings and robberies not 'hurt feelings'.
It is time to restore commonsense to our police forces and well done to chief constable Sara Thornton for speaking up and saying publicly what many people are thinking but are too frightened to say because of the potential backlash from the PC brigade.
