To be fair though he is still recovering from being the victim of crime after that bloke broke in and stole all his payslips.

She is,

I don't agree at all. The police are using social media effectively when required, but don't want to post premature or unfounded information there to start a panic.   Nobody can stop individuals po

It's difficult to believe that they haven't been caught by now, and it begs the question about the quality of policing on the Island.

 

The scrotes are just leading the Police by the nose and on a merry dance.

 

Could the Police catch a cold, let alone a burglar?

For Christ's sake, at least here we EXPECT them to catch them and no doubt they soon will. If it was the UK we wouldn't be holding our breath.

I know it's from the DM but it is true.

 

Burglary: now police give up

By JO BUTLER, Daily Mail

Police made the astonishing admission yesterday that they have given up even trying to catch thousands of burglars.

Just days after the Lord Chancellor Lord Irvine insisted that the public don't want to see many house-breakers jailed, officers have been told not to bother investigating many offences.

The revelation follows an alarming rise in the crime figures, with burglaries up eight per cent in a year to 447,100.

And it comes as Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith begins an all-out attack on the Government's crime-fighting record.

The decision not to pursue thousands of crimes emerges in guidelines drawn up by the Metropolitan Police and seen by the Daily Mail.

Similar measures have been adopted by other forces in an effort to make shrinking resources go further.

Officers have been told that only the most serious crimes, such as rape, child abduction and murder, should be investigated automatically.

In other cases, investigations will be launched only if it is "deemed solvable using proportionate resources".

That means there must be clear evidence pointing towards a suspect such as DNA traces, fingerprints or a possible identity, which makes an arrest likely.

In other cases, unless there are "special factors" - such as an elderly victim or if it is a repeat attack - no effort will be made to track down the criminal.

It means a huge number of cases of robbery, violent crime, car crime, sex offences - all of which saw rises in the latest crime figures - as well as burglary, will be left to gather dust

 

 

 

What happens in the UK follows in the Isle of Man eventually, sure as night follows day.

 

 

However as a small island by it's very nature is a community in itself it should be better served to combat burglaries, especially prolific ones of this nature. Hopefully what comes out of this is more of a community policing environment, whereby every small area becomes it's own neighbourhood watch system and we get back to what may have happened yesteryear, with everyone looking out for each other. We can only hope.

 

 

The Island used to have more of a community policing environment, so I don't quite know where it's all gone wrong but hopefully 'lessons will be learnt' and all that.

 

The community spirit seems to have gone by the wayside over the years, which is a shame.

 

The fact that it is such a small Island makes this all the more surprising in that the scrotes haven't been caught yet.

"Community policing environment" lol...

 

I don't even know my neighbours names.

 

Crap that's bad. I know all 9 neighbours in my road, I've been here since early May 2014. I know their names, their dog's names etc. You really must live in a bad part of town sad.png .

I know my neighbour's names. On one side is "Has a lovely puppy" and on the other side is "Parks like a dickhead".

Well, I've got "Has a stupid grandfather clock that goes off every hour", "Keeps backing into the bin storage", "Random old man that has men disappear into his flat at any time of night".

 

Oh, and then there's the old pensioner who's milk has been piling up outside their door since before Christmas. Lazy git.
